Beside each forum title on the index page, an indication of the total viewers of that particular forum will appear. The look of this indication can be modified through Admin CP > Board Settings >Count Forums Viewers. By default it is ({1} viewers), {1} represents the number of viewers you should not change it, but you are allowed to change everything else, let’s say you’d like to make it looks like [{1} viewers in this forum], just type that in the settings part.

Html is also allowed over there, so you can bold the part you want.

Also from the Settings part, you may specify if you want to hide or show it when there are zero viewers.


Customize the way the indication appears.

Use HTML to add more styles.

Hide / Show when there are 0 viewers.

Easy activate and deactivate.

No translation needed, as the user can edit the indication’s text from the settings part.
