: Search for a user by IP address or host name.
This a phpBB 3 version of one of my phpBB 2 mods, IP Search
. It adds a page to the ACP where you can enter an IP address and get a list of everyone that has recorded activity from that address. You can also enter a hostname to search; the modification will look up the IPs for that host and search for all of them. If a certain user is being a problem, you can view all of the IP addresses used for their account by entering their username, as well.
Two wildcards are supported in IP address searches, the * for matching many characters and the _ for matching single characters. This allows searches for IPs like 127*, 127.*.1, 127.0.*, 12_.0.0.1, 1_7.*, and so on.
After installing, look for the IP Search link in the User Security menu of the Users and Groups and on the .MODs page of the ACP.
Version 2.3.x Notes:
This version adds the ability to search on multiple IPs or users at once. When doing a search of one type, you can have IP Search automatically run a search of the other type based on the first set of results. So if you search for the IP 127.*, that would get a list of users with that IP and then those users would be searched to find all of their IPs.
Results also now sorted by username and display the dates an IP was first and last used.
