before we could see where people are browsing or posting, it was nice because I could find my MDC friends easily by going where they are browing. why is this feature not available anymore? also why can't I see the last time someone logged on? (the space where that info showed is blank)

If you click on someone's username and the choose public profile it will show you where they currently are or the time of their last activity.

I just realized, people seem to be offline (it never shows where they are anymore or if they are online) it just shows the last time they were on. is that what you see Cynthia? and then sometimes I see nothing too.

Exactly. It doesn't show what thread or forum they are viewing.

I'd need to login under someone's username to test it. Who'll volunteer their account? Someone who's having the problem of course.

What about those that have the invisible feature activated? Would you not be able to find out where those people are?

I think it says "offline" for those in invisable mode.

No, it's not just you, LMB. I can't see where anyone is browsing either.

Jamie, are you sure you can see it?

I logged into your account loving-my-babies and you're right. Nothing about the member's location on the board. Just the last activity time. I've posted to vB support to find out what the problem could be.
