Fake Online Users IconWhen any site starts up it's often handy to make it seem a bit more popular. Fake Online Users is designed with that purpose in mind and presented in a format identical to that of Joomla module. Perfect for your new site! Please also consider Fake Registered Users as a complimentary module when considering this.


This module shows a fake amount of online users and unlike most free module for this, this doesnt show any annoying copyright text in the frontend. Its generates a random number for the guests and members between the minimum and maximum numbers that you specify in the parameters. Small and very simple to setup.
