XF 1.5 Getting to the bottom of IP address and last activity

In back end, there is often conflicting info on this. I think.

What does each one mean.

I tested it and logged in and clicked around, but that wasn't registered. The last activity and ip address was from a week ago.

Is that right? It maybe.

Thanks

Did you by chance recently enable cloudflare or something similar? (Just curious as something similar happened to me a long time ago)

IP addresses will only be logged for explicit actions such as logging in by typing the user name and password (not an automatic log in due to 'remember me' being checked), or creating content such as a post, profile post, conversation, etc.

Liking content generally won't log an IP address.

Last activity is typically related to loading pages.

Normally, if it's an ajax request, the session activity isn't updated.
Replying to a thread is a special case though and should update the session record.
