IP BAN question

Post by ShyneeThings »

Just wondering. I had an anonymous poster (former fourm member who's member access was revoked) make an alternative registration name. A malicious post was made on the public access area and then delted before i could pull the IP address up.

Now, am i missing osmeting or is there a way to pull that post back up? or to find out the IP address of that user log in name? Thanks.

Deleation of a post is perminate. You also would need the Log IP Address on Registration Mod but that only starts recording IP's on new registeration's.

So if you know the name he was under and that email, ban that email and add this mod and if he reregister's then you will have his IP.

No, you have no access to the files so you cannot install any MODs, styles, etc.
