FAQ

Where is the settings page for the Who’s Logged In plugin located?

You can find the plugins settings page after logging in as an administrator, and clicking on the Dashboard >> Settings >> Who’s Logged In sub menu item.

I’m an administrator, and while viewing my dashboard page I don’t see the Who’s Logged In metabox anywhere?

Check that the Who’s Logged In plugin has actually been activated on the Dashboard >> Plugins page first off. If the plugin is activated you may need to click on the “Screen Options” button, near the top right of the dashboard page, then check off the “Who’s Logged In” box to add it to your dashboard.

Love the idea behind the plugin but the new feature that logs out after 15 min. needs a big adjustment. Often getting distracted while on a site takes place. You are even logging out Admin with your timer. I wanted to use this plugin but have to remove it because I can't be logged out automatically every 15 min. As I'm developing, the plugin logs me out and it is a pain in the but to log back in over and over. Create a settings area for the plugin where we can decide if we want it to log out users or not.

Simple and useful plugin! Works fine in WordPress 5.3.

I tested in in WordPress 5.1.1 and it is working perfect. I logged in as myself (admin) and saw my userID in the dashboard metabox: Who's logged in. In another browser, I logged in as another user (editor) she does not see this metabox in her dashboard; but I saw her name below mine. She logged out, and her userID disappeared from my dashboard. That's all I need. Thanks

Installed the app and it did exactly what it said. Indicated who was logged in. The only problem is... the populated "who's logged in" list does not change, refresh, and remove the users that are NOT logged in. The problem was already posted 8 MONTHS AGO with NO RESOLUTION. So, it only goes to say... the app sucks and so does their support. If they prove me wrong and reply with a resolution to not only myself but the original posting user that would be great. But, nothing thus far. Good day!

Straightforward app that does exactly what I needed. Worked first time and gave me good visibility of who is on the site at any time. As a proposal for future development it would be nice if the software allowed the admin to log users out from the dashboard.
