Hi

Sorry if this is a stupid question but in my Admin CP on 2.0.22 it keeps showing one particular IP address for a guest user.

I have no problem with guests viewing the forum but its saying they are viewing private messages and sometimes posting a reply. Nothing ever shows up as a post from a guest.

I am just worried that someone has access to pages that should only be available to registered users.

Can anyone help?

Cheers

Simon

They are not reading PMs. They're seeing a login message.
Nothing to worry about.

If you click the IP address next to the guest you can trace it. It's almost certainly googlebot just indexing your site.

Thanks for putting me mind at rest.

I did trace the IP in question and it just said its from the US. The IP has been busy on the site for ages now.

Thanks again
