  • View Other IP Addresses for this User - Tool not functioning?

    In the 'IP Address Search' tool in AdminCP, the tool is not logging IP addresses each user has posted with.

    It shows the "Registration IP" and then below that is 'Post IP Addresses'. It should have like 5-6 IP's under my account but there's not, just the number 1.

    Why does it show a '1'? If you click that link it shows you every user on our forum.

    Is there something we need to turn on for this to work?

    We have a user that we banned, and he is rubbing our noses in the fact that he has other accounts we can't find. We have found 3 of them but we know there are more. Anyway other way we can find them? He is a major problem user for us.

    Does this work for everyone else?

      The link for the number appears to be missing the /admincp/ part of the URL. In fact, I'm not even convinced the numb er should be linked as if you right click this and open that link in a new tab, add the missing /admincp/ to the URL, the page it displays doesn't show anything additional.

      I'd just use the "Find more users..." link
      Vote for:

      -
      *PM - Add ability to reply to originator only*
      - Add Admin ability to auto-subscribe users to specific channel(s)
      - Highlight the correct navigation tab when you are on a custom page
      - "Quick Route" Interface...
      - Allow to use custom icons for individual forums

        In addition to what Flash is asking, is there a way to log all IP addresses of each user. For instance, when a user posts it logs that IP. If that same user makes a future post from a different IP could the system maintain a log of both IPs? I believe older versions of VB did this??? I know that IPs don't give us a definite way of identification, but it would be an extremely helpful tool for us to help identify these problem users that make multiple accounts after they are banned. We want a running log of all IPs used on our forum, and who used them, so we can compare multiple accounts using the same IP at the same time AND who has used an IP in the past. The IP search function in admincp doesn't do much for us without keeping IP history.

        I hope that makes sense.

          Not sure if it helps but there is a JIRA for IP address search http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-13185

              There are no solutions at this time. Any updates would be in the bug report.

                vBulletin 5 Connect and vBulletin Cloud have the exact same IP Logging capabilities as previous versions. What is broken is viewing the IP Addresses in the AdminCP. They do exist in the database.
