Month and year just don’t cut it. ;)

Re: More granularity on user last login Date...

Agreed, including the date at the very least would be much more useful.

Agreed. Hope one of the programmy core devs can do this. Maybe open an issue in SVN?

Re: More granularity on user last login Date...

The last login date only tells you when the user logged in. Not when the user accessed the site. As the session lasts for a month, the last login date isn’t very accurate presentation of when the site was accessed by the user. You can’t tell from when your account was accessed by someone else, or how actively users use the site.

Now, if the date contained the day, what valuable information would that provide to you?

Re: More granularity on user last login Date...

Nitpick: then, the column may be better renamed to something else than last_access, as it’s currently named. last_login perhaps?

Re: More granularity on user last login Date...

OK, so I suppose I should be more specific.

Often I would like to have an easy way to tell when the last time a user was accessing the back end. That field is virtually pointless as is.

Re: More granularity on user last login Date...

I noticed that the last login column really isnt accurate.. Anyone else.?
I know for certain that a specific account was used, but no date shows up..

That person didn’t log out then. As a result, there’s no login necessary and no new timestamp created.

Maybe hide the checkbox “Remain logged in” from the login screen? Can’t tell, though, what happens if users don’t log out and quit their browser immediately.

Re: More granularity on user last login Date...

I did log out..

I created an account for myself just to test, and I log in, do whatever, log out.. Never gets marked with a date, although, this is using smd_user_manager, cbe_members, cbe_frontauth..
Not sure If this might make a difference, but some accounts are logged, others are not..
