Users with same IP

In progress Users with same IP

Post by Orryx on March 12th 2012, 4:57 am

I've run into an issue with users who share an IP address. Its a couple that joined our forum and they both log in from their home. It seems when one user views a topic, its marked as read on the other's login as well. This issue makes checking the board difficult for these two as they have to check threads by last post times versus their last login instead of looking for the unread post icon. Is forum activity tracked by IP or by user? Can I fix this as admin or is it an issue with the host itself?

These are most likely proxys,you will run into them frequently. Just keep your eye out for trolls.

So you don't want members to have more then 2 accounts? IF so,

Acp >> General >> Forum >> Security >> IP address accounts creation limit, for each 24 hours : ''your decision''



Attention!

These are two separate people, a husband and wife, and I know them personally. Not allowing multiple accounts per IP would be counterproductive to our group. Its aggravating to them to have to check times versus simply looking for the "New Posts" icon when checking the forums at their home. We used to have our forum elsewhere and recently moved here but we didn't have this issue with the old host.

If the new post icons are not showing for them then they can always check these options on the index page.
View posts since last visit • View your posts • View unanswered posts

Other then that if they are two different accounts with two different user names, then it should not make a difference because they share the same ip, the only thing i can think of is if they are not checking all new post when they log in, then they will no longer show up as new post when they log out and in again, So you should tell them to always check when they are logged in and that they can always check the options on the index page i have above.

Hi,

The activity is tracked by users. They should be able to see new posts that have not been read seperatly from each account normally (icon would show new posts for him and her) if that's what you are asking. If not please explain a bit better.
