    I was on the Recent Activity page & noticed that for eg MrBrian was not listed. As he had just posted in a thread of mine i thought it was odd ?

    So i went Current Visitors & NOBODY was listed, not even me ? And i havn't set my profile to stealth.

    It is a wrong script or something, because the main page shows all non-hidden members properly, but when you click on Members Online Now, not anymore.

    You can see recent activity only if a user (in this case MrBrian) enabled it in their privacy settings. It's under People who may receive your news feed.

    This is correct. The Current Visitors page only shows results to forum staff members. That restriction is the same as we had on vBulletin's for its Who's Online page. The only difference is the type of message you receive when trying to see the page. Here, the page results are protected by the permission to see detailed activity on the forum. No permissions, no results.
