Question about IP's (SOLVED)

Post by PlanetMelb »

Hello

Appreciate your help with this (also)

I am a site admin and would like to allow moderators for my forums to do everything except view IP's of posters. Is this possible? How?

TIA

Admin Control Panel -> forum permissions -> do what you want threre, i think thats what you want.

Or if you want it as though they are Admins, but without being able to see the ips. You could install the Super Moderator mod, and edit the index.php of the supermod panel.

I also thought the first would fix it, but it does not have an option to set the permissions for IP's, the choices being:

View
Read
Post
Reply
Edit
Delete
Sticky
Announce
Vote
Poll
create

Unless one of these pertains to IP's but I doubt it.

This sound difficult but will give it a go if no other way. Any idea where I can hunt for this?

TIA

What do you mean option for the ip? the only place you can see the ip is in the admin panel.

my apologies I was not clear. I went inot Admin Control Panel -> forum permissions as you suggested and found the options as listed. I though there may have been an option to only allow the site admin to view a posters IP but there is not.

My problem is I don't want my moderators to view posters IP addresses but I can't find an option that stops this.

thanks again

Also, FYI, if you are logged on as administrator, you can see every posters IP above their post.

I thought only admins can view the ip of a user, do you mean in the admin panel?
If no where?

sorry if I am repeating but admin can view IP in both admin panel and even in every post on the forum.

moderators can also view this information, obviously not in the admin panel but above each users post. I am sure there is a simple fix to stop them doing so but i can't find it :(

I didn't think mods could see that, i will just test it out.


Upon testing, i cannot find any-reason why a mod should see the Ip button.

oh :o . You could remove the button completely in templates -> {template} -> viewtopic_body.tpl.

Search for

Code: Select all

{postrow.IP_IMG}
Just a thought, if you are running a template other than subsilver, it may be that they can see it but they cannot use it.

Ie. they click on it, it says
You are not authorised to view this page
Just another possibilty.

FWIW, I just tried subsilver - same result. IP is still visible to moderator.
