Generally that's what's used. If you can't find it, scroll to the bottom of the screen to the style drop-down menu to see which one you have, post it here, and I'll show it to you.

    If you don't have that option turned on, you won't be able to see the online / offline buttons. Make sure it's on first under "Postbit Elements". If it's already on, it should appear next to the username (on the right) in Standard display and towards the bottom of the postbit in Legacy mode, right above the post-comment / report post buttons (as in dragonomega's screencap). On most themes, it will just be an image with an active / inactive version. It's usually just a colored icon that turns grey when someone is offline. Mouseover it to view if the person is online or off.

    On Dimensional Rift, it's:

    There's also a SLIGHT peculiarity in themes like Generation InVerse and any themes styled similarly to it where the online button is removed completely and is replaced by a little textarea to the bottom-left of the postarea. It says "ONLINE".




    It would have really helped to tell us what theme and display you were using.
