Why does it show JonesCarpeDiem as logging in last on December 9, 2018? We all know that he is here daily.
I think (OH!!! can you believe how incredible it would be if I am right about a techy question???) it MAY be that we don't log out each time we leave the site........so we are still logged in. I know I usually do not need to "log in".......because I left the site but didn't log out.
Mark -----am I right????
I hope you are!
Yes that could be the other explanation. Sootie if there are no ad blockers and you don’t log out. There is a session timeout of 30 or 45 days.
Me too.....can you "@Mark"??? I cannot. I don't "get" his name when I use the @ sign.........don't know why but I never have been able to............................
He will see it when he is around as you posted it as a question. The @Mark function has not been working for forever. The only way you can @mention him is to copy and paste an existing link:Mark.
But - my page shows my last login as 12/31/18 - so I think you are correct, techie!
This is so exciting!!!! I feel like I am waiting for Ed McMann to come and tell me I won!!!!!!
Put in @“mark” and it will show me.
Sootie and YoungAtHeart
@mark does not work for me - still
I never log out - very occasionally I am required to log in. What shows as my last log in date?
Your last log-in date is currently reading 2/5/19. And to @ mention Mark, use quotations around his name. That's now working for me i.e. @ "mark" (without the space between the @ and his name in quotes.
Mark Oh well that helps - lol
For the record, I don't normally pay attention to this date for the "regulars". But is useful - as least to me - when helping new quitters. I get concerned if they have not been on the site for a few days. So I guess really no good way of knowing if they have been on the site or not.
I feel the same way. On the previous platform we knew if someone was on or when they logged in last. (I think - at least we knew when they were present.) It would be so helpful to know when newbies were on the site last.

I'll see what can be done to improve this. I agree it can be misleading if saving login information is causing last login to seem forever ago. I suspect it has something to do with using single sign-on though I also wonder in some cases if it has to do with ad-blockers as they can block certain events from being recorded, we wouldn't be able to do anything to improve that. I appreciate the feedback.
If you look at someone's activity tab in their profile (Yours) you can see when they were last active. For the people who use reply by email almost exclusively, you won't see them as logged in as a reply by email doesn't count as a login so you'd have to look at the activity tab. I know it's another two steps more than looking at the hover-card though that still is off by one day.
For newbies, it seems that their last login dates appear to update more frequently. Perhaps because they may not save login information at first? I don't remember anything on the elgg community about last login but I do remember the "online" function which wasn't completely accurate as it would still show you online even if you had been offline for ~15ish minutes. We didn't have reply by email and many other functionalities that we do now with this community.
