      Maybe in version 2.1 (or 2.0), the administrator needs to enrol himself into the course in order to show up. I tried this, and then I do show up. Well, I am not sure if this is a bug, or just a feature change in this "online user" block. I could not find an answer to this in the online documentation.

      Description

      In Moodle 2.1, I (I am the manager) am not showing in the "Online Users" block. In version 1.9.12+ and earlier versions of Moodle, I would always show. I looked around all of the Moodle 2.1 settings, and did not see anything for me to try. I wonder if this is a new "feature" of Moodle 2.1, that it doesn't show the Manager. I did try switching my role to teacher, and then to student, to see if I showed up in the Online Users block, but I did not.
