Solved Hiding IP address from Mods

Post by tylercole on December 1st 2016, 7:39 pm

Hello, I am looking to hide members IP addresses from Moderators. How do I do this? I found the post 1
Select/Unselect multi-quote
Reply with quote
Report post to moderator or admin
Lock post for new reports


ACP=>Users & Groups Tab=>Special rights=>Users IP display

I then click on admins for Users IP display. but my mods can still see IP addresses?

Yes that is the settings I can tell you as long as the are not in the Admin Rank on your forum and you set it to Admin only they can not see the IP address of the member.

you can test this by making a test account and making it a mod account (Not in the Admin Account) then log in and look for the IP address button on a post.

Ok, one of my members is a friend of mine, so he just gave me his password so i could experiment. I made him a mod and it still gives him the option to see the IP adress of members. Even after i set Users IP display to Admins?

Is this group you added him to was it the one that is created when you create a forum?  If yes, it has all privileges.  It is the administrator group.
