  • Ip address field and [View Other IP Addresses for this User]

    I'm running VB 3.0.3

    Our board is getting slammed by spammers and we want to stop it asap.

    I assume the IP address displayed on the search user function in the admincp is the signup ip address.

    When i select "View ip addresses" I see the last known ip address(es) of this user, not even the initial signup address. Also when i try to do a manual search using the initial ip address as a search term, i find nothing.

    Is there a way to find users based on initial signup ip addresses ? Or can i use/fill this Ip address field on the user with the last known ip address
    If not, please add this one to the featurelist.

    Thanks in advance,

    The IP search is for posts, not the initial signup. AFAIK there is no built-in way to search for those IPs.
