Always show User Agent string in Who's Online v4.2.0 and up

This is just a simple little deal I use just to make my life a little more convenient.

You want to see User Agent strings in WOL, for lots of reasons but I primarily use it to collect information on bad spiders and bots for adding to ban lists for same. You also want to order what you see in WOL, by most recent hit time. This is easy.

In the Navigation Manager, just change the Target URL from:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Now when you click on "Who's Online," you get the full picture without having to mess with settings in WOL.

This changes nothing for anyone not permissioned to see IP addresses - they still won't see them or the UA they will get just the regular, same WOL page they always have. Except now the entries will be ordered by most recent to top, of course.

And.... That's it. Enjoy.

Thank you.
Works perfect.

Just when the UA is very long it exceeds the forum width.
Not really a big deal.

Yeah that way happen, but the general mass can't see that info anyway. :)
