They can't see old visitors IP addresses, only people browsing as a guest or member. If someone leaves a post on the site then they can see the post IP address.

Which other forums are you referring to? There are only two ways to see the IP addresses of guests:

1. While you are logged in, you can see guests' IP addresses in the administration panel on the who's online list.

or

2. If a guest has posted as a guest, you can press the IP address button in the message.

Which means trolls and outers must check that page often.

Guests can not see the administration panel or the IP address button in messages.

There are at least one admin with a forum based here, who use to publish IP-numbers on visitors, perhaps against your rules.

I got 2 of those on my forum but its so much work to update often.

Please don't double/triple post. Your post need to be separated by 24 hours before bumping, replying or adding more information. Please use the edit button instead!

Do you mean that an administrator posted the IP addresses on his forum?

Jawohl ich haben es verstanden, I concidered that and compared with normal forums, if you get an email of a post and read it, you dont get another one if its edited, verstehst du?

Hi,

As said in here, on a FORUMOTION forum, once a visitor (Guest) has left a forum, you can no longer find their IP Address.
If the Guest has posted (As per your forum permissions) their IP address will be logged and accessible by all admins, and allowed people.
If the Guest is just 'viewing' somewhere, you can see their IP Address via the index page of the admin panel.

If a guest is saying he is viewing the admin panel, FRET NOT, he is not inside the admin panel, (s)he is simply seeing a page that says (s)he doesn't have rights to access the page, for example: help.forumotion.com/admin

There is no other way to check an IP Address' on our forums.

As you said, it is not permitted to publicly post an IP address on our forums, please report the forum via the tool: http://www.forumotion.com/en/litigation/

It is not possible to get an email notification of a post being edited.


I hope this clears things up. Smile
