    creating a user list

    Hi Everyone,

    I am just in need of some advice. I need create some sort of place in my page which will store a list of users which are currently logged in.

    Perhaps some sort of text box (a div element?), which reads from some place to get each users username, and then display each username in a list.

    Can anyone give me a starting point?

    tons of options here, but need a little more info first...

    what language(s) are you using and/or proficient in?

    how do you know which users are currently logged on? are you storing them in server variables, a database, or some other method?

    assuming you are somehow cataloging a list of current users (perhaps in a table in a database), when a new user logs-in, you can easily grab all the user names from the database and write them into an UL, placing that anywhere on your page.

    again, the possibilities really depend on how you are collecting and storing the current user info, and what language(s) you prefer to use.

    hope this helps,
