    My username says Offline when I'm Online

    When I visit any forum in which I've posted and locate my username and hover my pointer over it, a pop-up tells me that "[username] is offline" even though I'm logged in and I've just posted. What's up with that?

    Most forums have an option within the profile settings that allows one to hide their online status.

    Have you selected that?

    Here you can see that I have chosen not to be invisible on this forum

    Thanks. I hadn't selected the invisibility option, and I checked to see who was listed as currently online, then went back into the threads and tried the "hover-over-username" thing, and they were also said to be "now offline," but now it all seems to be working perfectly.
