  • The IP Address in Currently Active Users...

    Is this the IP address that is ACTUALLY logged in? Or is it the last IP address the user POSTED under? I have been told in the past that ONLY addresses that have been posted under are tracked, I just want to clarify how the Currently Active Users page works.

    Yes, the IP address in who's online is what the user is logged in under. When you use the IP tool in the admin cp, it will only show IPs from posts.

        Yeah, I was wondering this as well. It's helpful to determine when someone is logging in under someone else's username.

          Don't forget more than one user will have the same IP address if they are logging in under a proxy server.

            ...or they have a dynamic IP from their ISP.
