    In this forum you can just see that your logged in. In about three other forums that I am member of (using vBulletin) you can actually see either the individual board or thread that a person is viewing. I think that's why they have the privacy feature.

    oh really? I didn't know that. My mistake. I just know you can do it on other boards because it's either displayed on the top of the page or lists are given.

    Go to the boards list. The line "Currently Active Users" is actually clickable, it takes you to a display of who is on, and what they are doing. It is just a general guide though, it updates on a schedule, so you cannot be certain someone is doing exactly what it says.

    It is sometimes v-e-r-y slow to load.
