I don't want IP addresses showing on my site

12 years 6 months ago #134500 by lexiack
I don't understand how it can be a joomlacomments issue when CB is disabled, the IPs go away. Can you help me understand how that works?

Also is there a different comment system that works with CB better than joomlacomments, by chance? If so, what is it and I'll try it.

Thanks!

Do you mean a subscriber on this website? I'm a new subscriber, I just signed up the same day I posted my original message.

You mentioned anonymous users, I was allowing people to use the comments without registering first, but they would always put a name in. Are they still considered anonymous as far as the system is concerned? I wonder if there's a way to hide those IP addresses. I'd hate to have to delete their comments.

I don't understand.. are you using CB ProfileBook and the issue is present with CB ProfileBook or is the issue present with joomlacomments? If joomlacomments comments then please contact the developers, we don't support 3rd party extensions or 3rd party anything for that matter.

You mentioned anonymous users, I was allowing people to use the comments without registering first, but they would always put a name in.

Yes, those are anonymous users; their IP Address will be shown to everyone.

I wonder if there's a way to hide those IP addresses. I'd hate to have to delete their comments.

Delete their comments or edit CB ProfileBook is your only choice. If choose to edit the plugin I can not help you and you're on your own.
