IP address from contacting person

Post by Kampp » Wed Nov 16, 2005 12:29 pm

Hi,

I get a lot of spam from people on one of my sites - odly enough the site where there are mostly very young people. Therefore I would like to have this simple feature implemented so there is no need for a hack! Please Please make it possible to have the contacting users IP added to the email, so they can be f.i. blocked!  >:(

Cheers, Kampp

if you look around, you'll find that someone had a similar idea and created a captcha-module, so that you have to type in a few letters and numbers. I can't remember where the thread was... If you post there, they surely can help you.

The need for IP logging is not related to spam, but angry users that can't live up to the site rules/agreements. They spam forums, emails, and everything els where they can write.

I have experienced this on more than 4 sites, and it mostly occurs at sites with low average age.
Is there any thourghts on adding this simple (but needed) feature?

you can write a plugin or mambot for Joomla (depending on if its 1.5 or 1.0) and let it do the logging for you.
