How can I find the IP address of a registered user? I want to track down a suspicious bit of activity on a web site I run of a very sensitive nature.

You need a user plugin which is triggered by the onUserLogin event: http://docs.joomla.org/Plugin/Events/User#onLoginUser. This plugin can record the value of the server variable $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] to a text file or a database table.

On the other hand, there are extensions which track the IP address of the users: http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... s/visitors
