how to record IP
Please does anyone know how to record the IP of everyone who will submit a link?
I have been searching this forum for, but there is nothing relevant.

Thanks

I think you would just need to add a new field to the database and add a new hidden input to the add form containing $ENV{'REMOTE_HOST'} or $ENV{'REMOTE_ADDR'}. Maybe you don't even need it in the database - you might just want to add it to the email that you receive?

Hi,

This may help;

http://www.gossamer-threads.com/...orum.cgi?post=273511

Basically, you add a field in lsql_Links called "SubmittersIP", and then use the following global;

Code:
sub { return $ENV{REMOTE_ADDR} }

Save this as "record_ip", and then in include_form.html, put something like;

Code:
<%if SubmittersIP%>
<input type="hidden" value="<%SubmittersIP%>" name="SubmittersIP">
<%else%>
<input type="hidden" value="<%record_ip%>" name="SubmittersIP">
<%endif%>

Hope that helps.

Cheers

I canít make this work. I have read the other thread and tried it also. What kind of setting do I use when creating the new field
ĒField Type Length/Set Attributes Null Default ExtraĒ I was trying text, but it did not let me set the Length/Set. It always showed an error:

MySQL said: You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '(22) not null' at line 1.

Query: ALTER TABLE lsql_Links CHANGE Remote_IP Remote_IP TEXT(22) not null
I have tried couple combination that didnít show the error, but than it was not working anyway. It only shows 0 in this field.

Type: CHAR
Length: 255
Regex: ^\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+$

Hope that helps :)

Is there anyone who tried this?
I feel dumbÖ Hey Andy this would be a nice little free plug-in you could write while you are on a lunch brake. Tongue

I've attached a quick plugin. Should do what you want :) Just install it, and then the IPAddress field will get updated along with the submission :)
