Does the user have a choice if they want to show the online/offline message in their comments? Because I think maybe some users would not like to show that information about them, so they can chose this. Is like the Skype config to set “online; offline”.

Hi Eduardo Chaves,

We’re really sorry, but the addon doesn’t have such a feature.

Hello. Is it possible to display all users who are currently online in a list? E.g. above or below the chat.

Hi Johannes,

We’re sorry but the add-on does not have such a feature.
However, you can get online users from the wp_wc_online_users table and display it in the list.

Please note: wp_ is just a WordPress database tables default prefix. In your case, the prefix can be different.

I bought the plugin but some readers don’t want the real time pop up notifications anymore, too bad you can’t disable them individually.

I will have to disable it for all visitors, I hope it will be an improvement in the future.
