The below user has indeed disabled presence features in his profile, but he still sees the online dot (and I do too):
That green dot comes from a plugin, right?
The presence features have been merged into core, as far as I’m aware?
“presence” in core refers to the “replying…” indicator. The green dots are part of my whos-online plugin.
Currently that plugin doesn’t respect the new profile setting, but it shouldn’t be too hard to add it. I might be able to add support at some point this week.
Ah good - thanks for the update
Closing since this isn’t a bug with Discourse core. Feel free to continue discussion at Who's Online Plugin (discourse-whos-online)
