  • How do I turn off the Guest IP Check for doubleposts?

    By default, vBulletin will check the IP addresses of your guests before merging their posts. If, for whatever reason, you want to turn off this feature you can login to the AdminCP and follow these instructions.

    After logging in, click on the ‘Options’ link beneath the ‘Settings’ header. In the new form that loads to the right, click on the ‘Message Posting Doublepost Options’ option before clicking the ‘Edit Setting’ button.

    When the new form loads, go to the text field beneath the ‘Guest IP Check’ header and click the ‘No’ radio button.

    Finally, click the ‘Save’ button at the bottom of the page to save your changes.

    Note: If you turn off this feature and don’t set a Time Check Limit, all Guest posts will be merged into one long post.
      Posting comments is disabled.
