Disable presence functionality


While « Who is writing » and Whos online plugins are quit useful, users asked to be able to individually disable it because it is too intrusive for them.

Would it be possible to have a «Offline» profile field ?

There is no per-user opt-out. But we are open to a pull request that would add this option.

That said, if your community is not particularly fond of this feature you can just disable the plugin all together.


There exists a Hide my public profile and presence features option under Preferences -> Interface which will allow a user to opt out.
