  • User & their recorded IP's - How can this be

    How can this be:

    1) In a user's Admin Control Panel profile, I see the IP address (for example)
    123.456.789.999

    However, when I click on: Users --> Search for Users
    and fill in 123.456.789.999 in "Registration IP Addess",

    that user does not appear.


    2) In Users --> Search for Users --> Search IP Addresses

    and fill in 123 in the blue box

    I see lots of other users with 123.*.*.* address, but not this one.


    This user account was created by a former Admin who left the board very angry. How could that user's IP not be searchable?

    Search for IP from the users box is probably limited to the IP registered when they signed up on the forum, and the posts. Not the admin log entries.

      And that is the IP in their User Profile that comes up when you search for that user, right?

      That's what I'm talking about. i.e., probably the Registration IP.

      Their user profile has 123.x.x.x

      I search for 123

      This user doesn't appear on the results.

      Why?

        other symptom

        How could

        "Find IP Address for user" JohnDoe

        show no results

        when the AdminCP User Profile for JohnDoe's IP Address shows

        123.456.789.123

          The Search By IP ONLY searches IPs that are stored with a user's posts. If they have never posted, they won't show up in the search.

              Yes, there is: Use the AdminCP/Users/Search for Users/Registration IP Address section.
