    Have a button for admins (that is next to edit, ip...) that brings up a list of all usernames posting from the same ip address as the current post, and then having a link to a lost of those posts. This is a similar feature in phpBB and vB.

    Will Pay. Please message me.

    Request completed!

    Are you aware that running the Spam Cleaner will show all users using the same IP address?

    Does that work if users have a bunch of posts each?

    You can change the criteria of the spam cleaner so it always shows; set it to 0 for everything.

    I am still characterizing it, but noticed this option:

    IP Check Date Limit

    When checking for other users having used the same IP addresses as those logged for a spammer, this control limits the search to the last x days.

    edit: I am not terribly sure it is working actually. I tried using the IP check on xf.com a while ago (B4?) and it timed out. In addition it seems to be timing out on my test forum which was a vb3.8 import.

    This does work, but is an extra click and seems resource intensive? On the other boards I used to be able to click under a post and a list would quickly pop up.

    And how hard would it be when you click 'IP' below the username and the pop up window comes up to make it so those IP addresses shown are clickable taking you to another site which maps the IP for you?

    I know it is part of the core of the system, but it is not very quick or user friendly and fails on me more times than not. I would still like to issue a request to have this built. I do LOVE Xenforo, but the protection needed for a... let us say passionate forum is not there. I would gladly pay for this mod. Am I allowed to list amounts?

    Of course.
    You're free to request any add-on and any amount you wish to offer to developers :)

    Yeah. We have a little bit of capital. I'm actually getting quite a bit nervous because our users are figuring out the safeguards we have had for a while aren't there anymore :(
