Don't Track Staff IP's

vB Version: 4.0.x Rating: (10 votes - 4.70 average) Installs: 29
Released: 23 Mar 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 159
Not Supported Uses Plugins  

This is a pretty simple mod, it was a request in the paid addons section but some people bailed on the person requesting it. So I coded it and decided to release it for free for everyone.


All the addon does is stop logging ip addresses for users in the defined usergroups for posts/threads. In theory it should carry over to the blogs also if ip's are tracked there.

Things it doesn't do:
Stop logging IP's in the admincp
Remove old IP addresses from the database.

Things it does do:
Stops logging ip addresses for current users in the list

To configure which groups don't get logged: Settings > Options > Message Posting and Editing Options > Which usergroups should we not store IP's for?

This could be interesting but I prefer if there is an option to stop logging IP's of individual user instead of entire user group. I believe many people would agree with me. Can you provide this option?

I don't see any reason why it wouldn't. (aside from the fact I told the product not to install to vb3)

Why not make an extra usergroup, toss them into that, and add it to the usergroups not to track?

Bad idea... why ?
If someone hack/phishes the staffs account, you will never know who it was.

If someone does this, unless they post it wouldn't matter anyway. IP's are only stored when a user posts, preforms a moderator/administrator action.

It should only stop groups 5 6 and 7 by default. Did you enter more usergroups into the field?

No. I have the defaults (5,6,7) and two more, that doesn't effect registered users by any way.

This addon doesn't change anything but what it changes and would have no reason to not track usergroups not entered.

If you disable the addon does it go away?

No clue how it is happenign the code we use is insanely simple. The only way it could be happening is if they're a part of those usergroups.
