P2 Check In

This plugin adds the ability for users to "check in" to the P2 theme when they're active.


  • Bug fix: Spaces were killed in the last update in the sidebar widget. Oversight when making files translation-ready. Added spaces back.



  • Feature: Logged in admins can now check out users. Ideally this should only be done when someone forgets to check out or something. Use with caution.
  • Fix: closed the cheating loophole on login.
  • Removed the cheating messages, since they're confusing and unneeded for folks on the front end.
  • Updated the stylesheet to support the new subtle x buttons for checking folks out.


  • Feature: Total checked in time is now logged and displayed, by default, with the user list in the sidebar. Get competitive!
  • Also removed some more unused CSS.
  • Note: Unfortunately this release my end up checking users out if they're in at the time you upgrade. This is due to this release making the meta values uniform (with proper namespacing across the board). Ideally this will be the only release that resets anyone.


  • Added kudos to the end of the description.
  • Tweaked the short description a little bit.


  • Cleared out the extraneous code leftover from the fork from Who's Online.
  • Added some code comments that I slacked on the first time.
  • Moved the check in button logic/markup into a function that outputs into the widget itself, rather than muddying up the widget code.
  • Refreshed the CSS entirely.
  • Separated the list of users into two groups: checked in and checked out. This way the two won't get mixed up and out of order.
  • Added a log in button, in place of the check in/out button, just in case the person isn't logged in yet.
  • Fixed bug where opacity would mess up the alignment.


  • First working version, implemented on a P2 blog I'm active on.
