    Is there a way to show who’s online with BuddyPress (yet)? How easy/hard would it be to add this functionality?

    As far as I know this plugin should work with BuddyPress, I know it works with WPMU 2.6.2.

    I’m adding similar functionality into the chat plugin I’m writing. Although I’m making it optional (like Facebook, where you have to put yourself online in order to be listed as online — although, once you’re in that state, you’ll register as online when you login). In fact, it’s currently the only feature that works right now :)

    Is would be good for live chat….

    There are also user online plugins for bbPress for those who have integrated forums and are looking for other alternatives, though the one I linked above definitely works with MU.

    I’m looking forward to the chat plugin duanestorey. I’ve hosted chat rooms before but it’d be nice to have one that ties into the MU/BuddyPress login system.

    The chat will be awesome. Also another option for simple “Who’s online” is to check for all users that have the usermeta of “last_activity” set for something within the last 5 minutes.

    Quite simple really:

    if ( time() <= strtotime( '+5 minutes', get_usermeta( USER_ID, 'last_activity' ) ) )
    // This user is online.
    else
    // This user is offline.

    So will this go into the release?

    Hi Andy,

    Do we need to add that line of codes within the members loop?
