Joomla Who's Online Module - Name

Joomla Who's Online Module - Name

This module enables you to display the names of the users who are currently logged in to the front-end of your website. It is a hack of the core Joomla "Who's Online" module which displays the name instead of the username for the logged in users. 

For those who feel that showing the username of a user may be a bit of a security issue, since this could lead to an attack on the credentials of that user, you can choose to show the name instead of the username.


Joomla 2.5 / 3.0


To install the module, simple go to Installers > Modules, choose the file you have downloaded above and click on the upload and install button. 


This module is compatible with Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3.


Configuration of the module is done via Modules > Site Modules. Click on the mod_whosonlline name item, and you will see a screenshot similar to the one below. It is basically the same as the Who's Online module, but in the front end you will see the name of the user instead of the username.
