No, not their exact location ... issues of general privacy have been raised by other developers ... therefore only notes such as "In forum: xxx", "Reading topic in: xxx", "Replying to post in: xxx", etc. will be shown.

^ You could just add an option to allow people to hide their *exact* location or be hidden altogether in the WOL....

There are other issues related to the use of p which preclude exact (per topic) locations being given. Upon noting the changes needed to overcome this other developers raised the issue of privacy and thus the changes have not been implemented.
