Turning off 'users online today' feature

I really don't care for it, nor asked for it on my forum. Any way to turn it off?

Features and options

Layout and options tab

Second to last option thingy is the "who's online list"

Nutz there isnt a way to disable the Users Logged in Today, sorry.

Kalphite.. that setting will not disable the Users Online Today.    It is for the "Who's Online" list.
This option allows you to turn on or off the ability for users to see who is browsing the forum and what they are doing.

Wow! That's it for all the added on clutter for now,right? A clean board as a default is much more appealing. Just my $.02

hi Nutz ;)     The feature was requested dozens of times over the years so SMF added it to the forums.    You could always make a Suggestion in the suggestion thread that an option be added someplace in Admin to disable it.    (I do not know if that is possible but never hurts to ask)

Kalphite naw..   meant as I said it but maybe I wasnt very clear.     Nutz would like there to be an option in Admin where we could disable the Users Logged in Today feature if we dont wish to have it on our forums.     Its not a bad suggestion as not everyone may want it.
