Display IP address on Profiles

Post by DragonMaster Jay on September 18th 2010, 1:42 am

Hello.

I was wondering if there was a possibility to place the user's IP address on their internal profile (admin panel view profile)?

I cannot seem to get the IP button in post to work properly so only administrators can view IP addresses, so I would like a better way to find IP addresses.

I know of only one way to find an IP address, if I don't want to display the IP button in post, and that would be in Admin CP > Users & Groups > Ban Control ..etc.

So, would this idea be appropriate to implement?

Well, if this is mostly a suggestion and not a support, you need to add a poll for it.

I think not. Frankly, I don't think there should even be the OPTION to put an IP Address button on ANY profiles. It should accessible by the Founder and the Founder ONLY.

Right. Only the administrators (not necessarily the founder) see the internal profile. So, it should be a good idea to place the IP address on the internal profile, instead of letting moderators access it via the IP button on each post.

No Administrator, except the ***FOUNDER*** should be able to view the IP Addresses. No other Administrators should be able to see it.

I'd agree with this, but only for admins and moderators.

why only the founder? if you need to ban and IP or view an Ip to see if its a dupe you have to ask the founder consistently?

that's a No No.

Not only that, being able to code the IP stuff for just a founder is rather complicated, and I doubt would even work with the current system set up.

Not really. There are already certain things that only the Founder can do. It would require a simple code change to extend that to the IP Addresses. Well, not simple in my terms, but simple for a good coder.

By the way, I hope you know that, if the Founder is the only Admin, only he/she can see the IP Addresses if there are no IP Address buttons.

Just found out there is a way to do this already.

Make a profile field for IP Address. Checkmark both 'Profile' and 'Messages'.

Then make the field "Display this field to users who are at least:" on Moderators.

Then the IP appears on profiles and messages only to mods and admins!

Hi Wellbe6, I have not seen the profile field for it.

Is there a special way to do it?

Also, to do it, either a mod or the member must fill in the field (make it required Smile) with their IP.

I thought about making it required, but people can change it, BS it, etc. So, it would really depend. I am not that desperate. Razz

The IP Address needs to be visible ONLY to the Founder. That's how I feel it should be. Not Moderators and not regular Admins. ONLY the Founder.

Why? Mods and regular admins also have to check IPs, not just the founder.

If somebody is already being trusted with Admin duties they have nearly the same amount of responsibility as the founder, as a consequence the difference seems inconsequential to me.

Privacy! That's why! If it weren't for monitoring certain IP Addresses and banning trouble makers' IP Addresses, I'd say NOBODY should be able to see the IP Addresses!

If I am reading this right then what you're looking for already either already exists because you can see IP's when people are logged in by going to your admin cp and checking who's online. Or you are talking about putting the IP in the profile that only the admin see in the ACP when searching a member, if thats what you wants its a good idea. Other hand if you want it on the main profile where everyone can see then no, that is worst idea ever.

So, what, you'd rather let people's privacy be displayed everywhere across the Forum?! STUPID IDEA! IP Addresses are supposed to be PRIVATE for a reason!

Indeed, internal profiles in the ACP.

A lot of spammers may sign up for boards, but not post for a day or two. So, if we get their signup IP address, then we can search the IPBL to see if they are a past spammer.

Preventing a spammer is a good idea than having the spammer/spambot flooding your board with a bunch of spam posts that take forever to delete.

No, I don't want it to be on the main profile for everyone to see.

I just want the ability for admin only to see IP addresses.

The current setting in the ACP does not work for admin only, because moderators can still see IP addresses. Seems like a flawed option. (ACP>Users&Groups>Special rights>Users IP Display).

Quick fix.

ACP --> Users & Groups --> Special Rights --> User IP Display. Set it to ADMINISTRATORS. Problem solved. Only Admins can see it then.

No, drachemeister, that is what I said...it does not work for admin only. Although, it was set to Admin only, the moderators were still able to see the IP address.
