The cool thing about BuddyPress is that it lets you add a sidebar widget to show who is online right now as well. It works great if you’re using the default buddypress theme, but if you’re using a different theme, it may show your users in a single vertical list. Not very pretty.
Here’s the fix posted on the BuddyPress.org form that worked on our BuddyPress 1.6 network. We use the Thesis theme framework so you can simply copy and paste the css code into the custom file editor.
Good to know. We use Ron’s BP Multi Network plugin to create separate buddypress networks on the same WordPress install so now I just need to figure out how to make the Who’s Online buddypress widget only show users of a specific buddypress network (and not every single user in the entire installation.)
