P.S., IMO the first-aid icon in the lower right corner of the compose window is confusing. I just clicked it and I still think it does something else. 😃
Our NodeBB forum is brand new and already some childish people are spamming it with fake users and names you don't want to read. Maybe it is a good feature to be able to see and ban their IP.
Not just seeing and banning their IP, but completely deleting their account, including any posts they made, from the site.
@planner +1 This kind of security is something I really miss in NodeBB
I think you can already check the IP but you need to ban the IP (via .htaccess for example) and delete the posts manually, so for this feature!
@leo Hey Léo I just checked for some reason it does not always give the ip. Look at the 2 users I banned only one of them had the ip. (For the outside word: me and Léo are co-workers)
Ah, okay. This has definitely been something we've been needing to do for a while now, but kept putting that on the back burner. I think we're running out of excuses to tackle these Hope we can figure this out for or around release of 0.4
Nice to hear that is planned
+1, Is there room to add the ip to each post? Have the option at the admin level to show each post and the originating IP?
@yuanja We don't actually track the IP address per post, though perhaps we can add that in...
What would be the value to tracking IP address per post?
My custom's forumn currently already displaying IP along each post. It's a way for them to keep an eye on the usage of the forum. Certainly I can see the argument can go either way about the value of usage. But I think if we are to track IP, tracking at the post level will give even more flexibility when it comes to removing bad posts.
@planner Hacked account cleanup and sockpuppet detection are the main two I can think of
It's a way for them to keep an eye on the usage of the forum.
The best way to keep an eye on the usage of the forum is to use an analytics software like Piwik or GA.
But I think if we are to track IP, tracking at the post level will give even more flexibility when it comes to removing bad posts.
That doesn't make sense.
@planner like I said, there are specific reasons the client wants the IP to be associated with each post. I can see either argument, but I can't agree it doesn't make sense. I do think it's valuable to have as much information tied to the post level as possible for forensic reasons.
