Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code  

Sometimes the normal users themselves need to detect duplicate accounts.
One of the easiest method of detecting duped accounts is by comparing their IP on their IP addresses on their posts.
But we can't show the real ip address to all users, only moderators should be able to do that.
So this hack will show the hashed ip address to all users instead. (i use MD5 at this plugin, you can use other such as SHA1 if you want)
If 2 posts have same IP, they will have same hashed IP.

Example :
IP : 1.2.3.4
Hash : ad1b3a02hdb

IP : 5.6.7.8
Hash : bd928cae31b2



How to install :
Admincp >> Plugins & Products >> Add New Plugin
  • Product : VBulletin
  • Hook Location : postbit_display_complete
  • Title : Display hashed IP (or anything that you want)
  • Execution Order : 5
  • Plugin PHP Code

It is shown to all users, even unregistered ones..
Because that's the purpose of hashed IP, to allow everyone to detect post with duplicated IP without revealing the real IP address

Except, it is very easy to "decode" the hashed information.

MD5 Decoder

And literally 100s of other such tools out there.
