Find User IP

In progress Find User IP

Post by Ford [FEZ] on February 28th 2013, 2:11 am

I've had a issue with a user on my forum, they posted inappropriate posts, so inappropriate I had to delete them fast and banned the user, and in the deleting of them I forgot to check the IP via a users post, so how else do you check for a users IP? I want to keep a eye on the IP, so if someone signs up with the same IP I'll know it's them and can prevent them from spamming my forum with that stuff again.

Edit: also sorry if this is in the wrong stop

Hi,

There's two options:

1. You can use the button, "View Ip." If you do not have it, then you can simply do the following:

ACP >> Display >> Pics Management >> Advance Mode >> Buttons (tab) >> View IP address of poster : add the button.

2. Once you have that set, then you can check the user's ip. Or directly do the following,
To ban the IP;
ACP >> Users & Groups >> Ban Control >> Ban an IP address. >> Search user IP address

When someone makes a post on the right hand side of the post, you have a IP button. You can click on it & check the IP. The other way is to catch the user online & check his IP in the admin panel.

I stated that I deleted the post before getting to look at the users IP via a post, and also that I banned the user, so there's not chance of 'catching them online.' I know I could have got the IPs that way. =]

Thank you for the help CJ11, I appreciate it, but I got a IP button.

I tired searching the users name in the IP ban section, and their IP, doesn't show. Is there a reason for that?

Yes, i just told you the two ways to do it. There is no other way except this.

It won't show anything in the IP ban section, as I don't think you banned the user via his IP.

Add a random imgae where the IP ban button should be ; )
Then you can check his IP, and then delete the button.

So that explains it all, do you have any other query?
