why are members able to see ip's in who's online?

Post by bluej » Sat Sep 22, 2007 9:31 pm

sorry for all the questions but i am brand new at this and search and search for answers and sometimes can not find them without posting a question here...

i have phpBB 3 RC5 installed
prosilver style

i was checking to see how registered user were seeing the board and i noticed that they were able to see the ip addresses of members in the who's online box :o

what do i need to set so that regular members can not see those ip addresses and adm and moderators can?

thanks for any help :D

I'm pretty sure that by default members can't see IP addresses.

Are you sure that you are using a normal account (i.e. not your admin account)?

When you are using the test permissions feature, you keep your full set of administrator permissions. Otherwise you would find your self unable to use the feature.
