Not Supported Uses Plugins  

This cracking little product, is a refinement of a previous mod of ours. Updated to work on all versions of vb4.0.0.x

If you use this MOD, please click Install

This Mod: adds an info icon below a members post.
It grabs the IP of the poster ( their post.ip )
By clicking it a new window opens up and displays the users Geo Location.

This is our MOST popular Modification for our admins, and allows them to track trace and locate users at ANY time.

To Install:

Upload the Image folder to your forum root. Allow merge.

Goto AdminCP>Plugins and Products>Add/Import Product

Navigate to: product-australiabound_iplookup.xml

Done !

Nothing more to do.


When a moderator/admin staff clicks on the icon. A new window opens with google map, and the users ip location is displayed.


"There is nothing worse is there:

1. a new member posts
2. you hover over the IP button in their post
3. you then have to go into admincp , users, enter their username, grab the ip address
4. then open a whois ip lookup
5. paste the ip in
6. check them out

This REMOVES all that crap. Just click the Ip Icon

If I wanted to be able to make this mod option available to a specific (or more than just admin) set of usergroups. where do I modify or add the code to do that?

Thanks for any help ....


Edit: ok, I figured it out ... I'm using this around the template ..

<vb:if condition="is_member_of($bbuserinfo,5,6,7,9,10)">


So, another question...

If I don't want anyone to see the locating ICON at the bottom of a post by Admin usergroup 6, how do I get that excluded from the above condition. Is it another condition after that one that somehow excludes executing if the post is by an Admin? You can tell, I'm not a coder ..

I'm not a coder, so if anyone could help me with this addition to the mod, I'd appreciate it ...

I have the following code ..

<vb:if condition="is_member_of($bbuserinfo,5,6,7,9,10)">

<a class="abipinfo" href="{vb:raw post.ip}&map_source=1&two_maps=1&overview_map=1&lang=1&map_type=1&zoom_level=7" target="_blank" /> &nbsp;</a>

So, the small i icon for IP lookup only appears at the bottom of posts for the user groups indicated and it works great.

Now, what can I add that causes the small i icon for IP lookup NOT to appear at the bottom of a post for specific userID's that I list in an array. In other words, I don't want the icon to appear in the postbit for certain useID's, regardless of whether the user group can see them or not.

I hope I explained that ok ..

I would think that it's a simple piece of HTML code to add to this template?

Actually, maybe this is the wrong place to try and put this condition, as perhaps the post is already displayed at this point, so if there's another place in the plugins etc where I can do this, that would be helpful too ...

Thanks for any feedback ..

Since upgrading to 4.10, the icon is misaligned with the others (see attachment). This occurs in the default style as well as all the custom styles I have installed.

What do I need to do edit to align this correctly?

I have the strangest matter which member's IP I try to look up, it just gives me my own IP and location. Each post shows the image no problem, but no matter what member's IP I click on, it just shows up as MY computer's IP and MY location, no matter where they are in the world.

Any clue at all what might be wrong???

(Right now I'm running 4.1.5...but it was doing the exact same thing when I first tried installing this on 4.0.)

Installed: image does not show anywhere. This mod should be in mod graveyard if developer is not going to support it.

I was also having a problem with the image not showing. Plus, I didn't want two IP icons on each post, so I did the following:

In postbit_proxyip, I found the following:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And replaced it with this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It is not an elegant (or permanent) solution, but it basically does the same thing. Hopefully the coder will show up and help us all out with this!
