  • IP Address Question

    As I was viewing some of my members profiles this morning I noticed that it appears that everyone of them have the same IP Address which is mine. Why would that be?

    Are they showing up with the same IP when you go to the Who's Online page? There was an issue last week with everyone showing up with the same IP, but the cloud devs quickly fixed that issue on Friday.

        There was a bug at one time that would update their registration IP Address if their account was manually edited in the AdminCP. If you're doing this, the bug may still be making its presence known. We only log IP addresses at registration and when the user makes a post. The IP addresses shown on the Who's Online page is transient data and only valid for that specific session. Sessions are deleted after 1 hour of inactivity and not permanently logged.

            Wayne, for the record you are probably right since I have had to reset a couple of members passwords in the past when they forgot them. I assume that is what cause this to happen. Once again thank you for the response.
