There is no setting to help select which member groups can see hidden members.

Only administrators can view them.

This could be an idea for a mod so Moderators could see hidden members but without admin permissions.

I have coded this for my forum. Allow me a few moments to package it up and upload it at the mod site.

The add on is ready and I uploaded it at the mod site but I get a message that it needs to be approved first.

Can you have a look at the screenshot and tell me if that is what you wanted?

cicka, making it into a mod sounds great, but you should also maybe put the code changes here as it being accepted as a mod might take some time.

just my opinion.

I just noticed that this request was for smf 1.1.11 whereas I use Smf 2.0. rc 3. I am really sorry for the misunderstanding and posting it at the wrong forum.

It is for Smf 2.0 rc3 but I missed that the Original Poster asked at a 1.1x forum. I will post here the link to the mod when it is approved.

Nice, was looking for something like this, when I dont want anyone to know I am hidden. LOL

Can someone make a version of this mod that is actually compatible with the 1.1.X version of SMF? I have been looking for a solution to actually hide the hidden users instead of showing that there is one hidden user and its always me so everyone knows so what is the use of that feature if the whos online section still shows hidden users.

You might try commenting out or deleting that portion of the code in BoardIndex.template.php that prints that information.  Search for num_users_hidden in that file.
