So I had setup my forumotion forum and set it so that only MEMBERS could view the posts, but i log in today and its all set to ALL can view, so my question is, is there a way to track IP address from which my account was logged in from ?

Hello,

You can't track ip addresses used by your account per say, because ip address is only recorded in posts. You can check the 'administration' actions to see if anything you didn't do was done.

I would just re tick the option and make sure to save. As if you didnt give anyone your password and no one else is an admin no one else should have access to your account. Maybe you just forgot to click save by accident last night?

Just one thing to add to what Brandon has said if some one else has used your account to change something you can look at the tools that Brandon told you and if you see any change you never made you will see your IP address or a new one then you can sort of see if some one else has made the change and not you.

Hello,
Additional some ISPs are not giving static IP addresses and they are changing their users' IPs very often 24/48/72 hours, you have to remember the first digits of an IP address is you IP Address Pool and its not changing except in case of ISP issues and your ISP will be able to redirect your IP pool to another.

Example:

192.128.211.091

The numbers 192.128. of the above example is your IP pool and it is difficult to change. The number 211.091 is the IP address which you get from your ISP's DCHP and your ISP he might to change it.

To locate your IP address you can use this tool.
