Viewing IP or multiple member

Post by James M. on November 28th 2011, 9:46 pm

I need to be able to see if someone is a multiple account on my forum. How do I do that?

The only way to check is by clicking on the IP button on the post made by a user. If the IP matches for another user, there is a possibility of a multiple account.

However, there can be two different people from the same IP, as it shows the IP of Internet Service Provider. The chances are minimal in such a case & can be ascertained if the two users have mentioned their locations.

I believe the only way would be to check the IP addresses.

Ways to check IP addresses:
1. If they are log in, check the hompage of the administration panel (bottom right corner).

2. Press the Ip address button in posts by the members you want to check their IP addresses.

P.S. Some members may be using a proxy so they could have more than one IP addresses show up.
