    Hi,

    When I checked some entries marked as 'Guest' in the wp-useronline pages
    I found that they resolved to :
    msnbot-207-46-195-105.search.msn.com (http://whois.domaintools.com/207.46.195.105)
    and msnbot-207-46-204-243.search.msn.com
    (http://whois.domaintools.com/207.46.204.243)

    How can I reconfigure wp-useronline to detect these correctly ?

    Because the new bingbot signature of the MSN bots.

    Find the file core.php, on line 79 add the following to bots array:

    'BingBot' => 'bingbot'

    after 'Amazon' => 'amazonaws.com', seperated by a comma. MSN bots should now appear in bots list in UI. This question

    P.S. FTAO devs. the UA string of the bot is: "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; bingbot/2.0; +http://www.bing.com/bingbot.htm)"
