When the player would mark themselves as vanished it would remove their location from the map and their player id from the list. It would not however remove them from the player count. After searching though the config and finding no setting to turn off the player count we dug through the files and here is the solution.
In "/dynmap/web/js" find the file "map.js", at about line 615 change this:
me.playerfield.text(me.options['msg-players'] + " [" + update.currentcount + "/" + me.options.maxcount + "]");to this:
This removes the counting of players online and total slots available. It does however still leave the player list intact, only showing online and unvanished players. As the count is now removed viewers of the map will not know when a vanished player is online.
This is great for Admins and Mods that want to check on players without giving them a hint that they are online.
