How can I hide the list of registered users?

The login module shows a list of all registered users when a user wants to login. Besides the fact that this list could become large, it is a potential security threat, because someone could try all available usernames trying to finde one who did not choose a secure password...

{QUOTE(thread_id=>73482)}Do you mean the online_users module? If you don't want it to appear, you can simply remove the module.}

Hi,

No, I meant the login module. It is needed to enable users to login, but it unnecessarily presents a list of registered users when the mouse cursor hovers over it, when you are currently not logged in. I consider this to be a security risk...

Thanks

Yep, but it could well be an artifact of the Internet Explorer 11 used at the office here, I will cross-check with the Firefox at home. All of the registeres users (there are four) have been registered by myself (as Admin) after setting up this new Wiki.

Checked with Firefox. Apparently (because there no list of registered users showed up) that was an artifact created by Internet Explorer.

Sorry for the confusion, and thanks for the support.
