   Where Are They? Minimize

This module displays a list of who is online viewing the portal and shows which page they are viewing.  You can see a sample on the Home page of this website.

This module was written by Scott McCulloch.   You can obtain a copy of the DNN3 version of this module by subscribing to his website at http://www.smcculloch.net.   He has a number of modules, containers, and skins, all of which are available for the subscription price of $35 US for a year.    This includes both the source code and compiled private assembly needed for installation.

Note:  For this module to function properly, the 'Disable Users Online?' checkbox must be unchecked on the Host Settings page.  See below for details.

1.  Download the private assembly zip file and put it in a folder where you can locate it later.  I always put these files in a folder named Program Downloads so I can find them easily.  The name of the file is WhereAreThey.01.01.00.zip.
