    Is there a way to find IP addresses on a forum? There's a local forum that's got some bad stuff on it that directly affects some members of my family. All are using made up names (of course) and we'd like to try to find out who is doing the posting.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Are you asking about finding a site IP address or a members IP address?

    Depending on level of Admin access a person has all IP's of members show. A regular member should not be able to see other members IP addresses.

    Define "bad stuff" and "affects". Because if what they're doing is illegal, you report it and let the pros find them.

    If it's not illegal, why exactly do you need to know who they are?

    I did ome research on this a while back and I think syrenn is correct. Only administrators have access to exact IPs and even then it is not easy to pinpoint a name or exact location. Contact the system administrator and see if these people can be banned.

    i think she wants the IP address of the posters doing it, not the forums web server IP address. There is no way to get as a normal user, but administrators and possibly moderators on the forum do and those who control the hosting box do as well.

    you could also setup your own web page somewhere and trick the people posting into following a link to your web page and then you would have it. depending on their email provider, you could also get them to send you an email which would reveal their ip instead of just the mail server

    Any forum should be set up so that the admins can track the IP of users. I've never seen one that wasn't.

    People talking smack about my son-in-law and his (ahem) "business partner." There's a child in this sordid mess. My daughter has tried to get the admin to take the damn thing down and it's no go. We just don't know who the posters are - for all we know the "business partner" herself may be behind the whole thing - she appears to thrive on attention. As near as I can figure this is about the 4th marriage the "business partner" has broken up.
