Tracking IP adress for comments (GL 1.3.9sr3)



Here how you can make your comments track the IP of the poster (I couldn't find a topic for this, so I'm posting it here).

Create a new field in your gl_comments table called ip with the following setings: varchar(20), NULL default=

Next, open your comments.php in ./public_html and find change to following code:

Text Formatted Code
DB_save ($_TABLES['comments'], 'sid,uid,comment,date,title,pid,type', "'$sid',$uid,'$comment',now(),'$title',$pid,'$type'")


Text Formatted Code
DB_save ($_TABLES['comments'], 'sid,uid,comment,date,title,pid,type,ip', "'$sid',$uid,'$comment',now(),'$title',$pid,'$type','$ip'");

For now, it just saves the code into the table. It doesn't show when viewing a comment, I'm still working on that. I know that the Visitor Stats pluging does a similar thing, but I didn't have that installed at the time.

Use PhpMyAdmin to view the stored IP per comment.

Good luck,

You could, of course, simply upgrade to 1.3.11 which has all that built in ... Mr. Green
