    Turning Recent Vistors back on....

    I was just fiddling in my user CP and I've inadvertently closed the recent visitors box. For the life of me, I can't turn it back on....

    I just know I'm missing something easy. I think it's time for bed

    How do you, ahem, switch it back on?

    If the "recent visitors" dialogue is still there all you need to do is click the arrow in the right corner to open the window back up.

    Hi Smarteyeball,

    It will not be in the User CP. Instead double click on your user name to open your user profile screen to see it.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Hi Patrick,

    As Shawn says, this is found in your Public Profile. To open this, click on your user name as shown under your Avatar (if you have one).
    -capture4-jpg
    From the menu that appears, select 'View Public Profile'.
    -capture5-jpg
    Here is the main page of my Public Profile. As you can see, all the options on the right ('Mini Statistics', 'Friends', 'Albums', 'Group Memberships' and 'Recent Visitors') are shown in a minimised state.

    To open these options, click on -capture1-jpg. This will change to -capture2-jpg and the relevant option (here 'Recent Visitors') will expand as shown below.
    -capture3-jpg

    Thanks fellas, it sounds simple, I know... but I don't have any buttons to maximize it:

    Hence the difficulty for what should be completely simple.

    Patrick,

    See if by chance that if when you move the mouse point over the area where the expand button should be it turns into the hand where you can click on it despite there not being a icon there.

    When I shrink that area in your User CP I get a image marker instead.

    No go I'm afraid. It stays as it is. Clicking all along the bar makes no difference either.

    Ok. I reported it to John to take a look at when he's online next. Should be only 2 to 3 hours from now.

    He should be able to get it sorted out.
