Solved Ways to See a User's IP

Post by Cyrus on May 19th 2014, 11:51 pm

As far as I know, the only way to find a user's IP address is to find a post made by them and click the button to view the IP. Is there an easier, more direct way to easily find and manage user IPs? It's very hard to tell if a user is evading a ban when they create a new account and don't post anything, as I can't see their IP address, since the current method I know of only checks for posts made from the IP address, not users with the same IP address.

There are only two ways: 

1.  The way you posted about.

2.  With no posts, you and the member have to be online at the same time.

Ah, okay. I suppose that will have to do, then. I hope to see the IP address system expanded on some time soon. As it is, it is extremely easy for a user to bypass a non-IP ban undetected. Perhaps a field in the ACP under the user's profile listing the IPs they have connected to the forum with?

Thank you for the help!
