whos-online-4When you are collaborating in a group to design a website, it can be helpful to see how many people are currently logged into the Dashboard. Luckily, there is a plugin available that lets you easily see how many people are online.

  2. Move your mouse over the Dashboard button and select add-on.
  3. In the Keywords field type 'who's online' then select the Search button to the right. Click the free Who's Online add-on that is listed.

  4. Select the blue Download & Install button on the bottom right. You will see a notification stating "The package was successfully installed." Click the Return button, then the Return To Website button on the top left.
  5. Using the menu navigate to the page you want to show who's online on. I want it on the side of my site, so in my tests I chose Add To Sidebar.
  6. Select the +Add Block option and scroll down and select, or search and click the WhosOnline block on the list.

    You will be presented with several options:
    Include Default Style.  When this is selected, the block will use it's default Style. Un-check this to use your own style-sheet.
    Show Who's Online Title.  If this is selected, it will show the name of the add-on block on top of it. 
    Online text message

    You can set the text that displays here, the default is:We have [guests] users online.

    The [guests] tag will be replaced by the number of people online.

    After making your selections, click the blue Add+ button, then roll your mouse over the Editing button and select Publish My Edits. You will now see the Who's Online block on your site.

    Congratulations, now you know how to add the free Who's Online block to your Concrete5 website.
