Make an online column in the users table that will show 1 when logged in and 0 when not. Run a query like so:

SELECT user_id FROM users WHERE online=true

to see who's online.

You need to also make a timestamp, and on each request this needs to be updated. Then, as it updates, it should aslo check for old timestamps (sessions are by default set to expire after 20 mins) and remove these entries.

There are better more complex ways of doing it, but that is the rough idea.

The easiest way is just to use the now() Mysql function. eg;
[code]
$sql = "INSERT INTO active (id,stamp) VALUES ('$userid','NOW()');";
[/code]
