[RESOLVED]Search by IP address

Post by TheInquistor » Sun May 16, 2010 8:49 am

I was wondering how to set this in the forum permissions. How can my moderators put in an IP address and search the members with it? Basically searching xxx.xxx.x.x instead of a search for say a string of terms. With the friendships of similar sites, we are frequently told of those people who are known as "trouble makers" and when provided with an IP, we need to know how to search for that IP

Go to a post by the "troublemaker" and click the ? icon.

so there is no way to type in a ip address and search the forums for that itp?

example...
we were given a ip address and told this person was a known trouble maker and beware of this person. So we want the ability to type in the ip address and then search if it is anywhere. And we understand the concept of dynamic IPs, but it narrows down the list to watch. instead of looking thru thousands of members posts.

I ask cause i know that this is a normal option in a few other forum programs, and I hoped it was on phpbb cause i only use phpBB

If you click the ? icon it will show you all the IPs that person has posted from and if any other users have posted from those IPs as well.

Also, on the members page you can call up 'find a member' and put in IP addresses to search, both full and partial with a wild card.

That should be a default option for a global mod set as anything above a queue moderator.

it seems the page only showes other users that posted from only that IP only, not "all the IPs that person has posted from"

It does show all the IPs the user has posted from.
yes. this is correct.

you wrote: "If you click the ? icon
1) it will show you all the IPs that person has posted from
2) and if any other users have posted from those IPs as well"

1) is correct. 2) not, because the page doesn't show if any other users have posted from ALL IPs but from only ONE IP, the IP of the post where you clicked the ? icon.

if i want to check if some other user shares one of the many IPs of the poster i have to check all single posts of the poster by clicking the ? icon.
I hope I made myself understand

Not sure what I'm missing here but I'm trying to do the same thing and can't find any "?" icon on the post or anywhere in the "Find a Member" critera that allows the search of an IP address. Am I blind or am I looking in the wrong place?
