Version 2.1.2 - Fixed MySQLi bug - Introduced GOLD/Premium Version
Version 2.1 - Added BBCode to Banned Users and Post Count Options, better debug info
Version 2.0 - Added report for Registration (User) IP Address Checking

Check out the GOLD Version for these additional features:
  • Run reports directly from the Admin CP anytime you want
  • Post daily report as a "New Post" into an existing thread rather than a "New Thread" each night
  • Access to another Gold Mod- Recent Registration Check- will block spammers and scammers trying to register multiple accounts from the same IP address

This mod will run a nightly scan of your "post" and/or "user" table. It will report if it finds any users sharing the same IP address. You choose in the options how many days back you want to look. (Max of 5000 days, but please use more reasonable limits.)

If any "duplicate use" is found the IP addresses, usernames and optionally the posts themselves will be reported.

See a real report: Report Demo at Qapla.com

The report takes the form of a new thread posted to the forum of the Admin's choosing (A private forum for mods or admins is strongly recommended.)

There are options for whitelisting (ignoring) specific IP Addresses and/or userids so if you or your mods post as other users you can prevent that from being reported. If you use the Zoints Anonymous Posting mod you will want to put that userid on the whitelist else the report will out whoever posted "Anonymously."

NOTE: There are PERFECTLY valid reasons 2 or more users may share the same IP address. This report in and of itself is not proof of malicious activity. Users that connect by mobile devices, work in same offices, or go to the same schools for example would likely share the same IP address on some posts. So would too any users connecting from the same home or public Wi-Fi network.

As of version 2.0 there is a report for both the "post" and "user" table. The "user" table will find when 2 or more users register with the same IP address.

Tested and working on VB 3.8.7 and VB 4.1.12/4.2.0 and should work on all 3.7 / 3.8 / 4.x versions.

Please disable glowhost temporarily from the product manager, then run a manual report and see what happens.

Another quality addition to vBulletin

Thank you. This is a nice report feature. Excellent work.

Anyway to change who is reported as having posted the report? Default is to identify the Owner of the Forum.

Marked as Installed, voted Excellent, and nominated for MOTM.

Running vBulleting 4.2.0 Patch Level 2.

Yes, in the mod settings is an option Report by User ID.

By default it is 1, but you can change it to any valid user id.

All the settings are defaulted.


How Many Days Back To Check? (Posts) 7

How Many Days Back To Check? (Users) 30

Records Limit is 500

There's no "error" when the report runs manually it just reads:

"Duplicate IP Report by BOP5"

And nothing else.

Manual report still doesn't run. I can wait to see if the automatic report runs tonight.

I ran the report from the Scheduled Tasks section and it returned these errors. The post was created and looks good though.

Strange issue:

I have this installed on four 4.2.0 PL2 forums. On three, everything works as expected. On the fourth, for some reason all posts from this mod are placed in the moderation queue.

Forum permissions look fine (no moderation required for posts in that forum and it's only used for Duplicate IP reports).

Admin permissions look fine and the author of the Dup IP posts is set to me. If I manually start a new thread in that forum, it is NOT moderated.

Not a critical error I know but it's driving me nuts trying to figure out why it's happening. I should note that this forum is on the same dedicated server as one of the others which is working, so it's not a server configuration issue.

Is it possible to designate more than one userID in Report by User ID? The description for this field doesn't indicate you can.

Out of ideas. If you want to PM me Admin CP / FTP / phpmyadmin details i'll take a look but not even sure where I'd start.

Great addon.

just a suggestion when report for registration ip addresses runs could you add an option where any users found will be moved to (COPPA) Users Awaiting Moderation.

why would you have you need a post sent via more than 1 user to a thread ?
it is designed as an automatic thread creator by 1 user to report duplicate IP's creating a post under 2 or more different usernames
