  • Turning off the displaying of IP addresses

    A user has requested that I turn off the displaying of his IP address as a condition of his posting so he can have some privacy. I was looking to give this a try in my forum to see how it works out, but did not know how to go about turning the logging off, meaning for everyone.

    Appreciate the help,

    I think that the admins will always be able to see it, but as for other groups, you would have to set that individually. But it would be weird for your moderators not to be able to see IP addresses if they need to.

    Why is this guy on your forum? I would be wary of someone who wants his IP hidden from EVERYONE. Or he could buy anonymizer software if he is that paranoid. For me, if he told me he had any conditions for his posting? I'd probably tell him his posts are not THAT important that I will rearrange my forum around him.
