  • IP address listing: is there a way to turn it off per forum or user?

    My board has a forum that is used to post anonymously (using a hack that switches the user over to an "anonymous" user if they choose). Is there a way to turn off listing the IP address either for the user or for the forum? I want it to be truly anonymous, or at least so that it doesn't show the IP in the postbit. My Super Mods can view IPs and I really don't want to take that away anywhere else.

    Regular users should not be able to view IPs. Check your settings here:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Message Posting and Editing Options -> Log IP Addresses

    Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

      Yes, I know that - I don't want the Super Mods to be able to see IPs either - but only in this forum (or for this user) - I still want them to be able to view them everywhere else. I was wondering if it's possible to do that?

        This can be done with template conditionals. Here is the online documentation for using template conditionals:

            variables

            I am working with Jennifer on this problem and I need to know what variable to use so I can filter out a particular forum but enable a certain user group.

            So, I need the variable name for forumid and the variable name for the usergroupid.

            Does a list of variables (or arrays) and their purpose that can be used in the templates exist?
