Question about IP listing (General)

Hello

I hope, I understood your question the right way.

... is there a admin function to stop the ip from posting on the forum.

An administrator can use the blocklist function to register bad words, user names and also IPs and IP-blocks that should be blocked from posting in the forum or to be posted in the case of bad words.

but still keep the ip in the data for admin control over the forum

These lists are handled independently from the IP of a visitor, that could be a temporary part of a forum entries record.

But, to be fair, to register an IP is often not very practicable because the internet connection of many users (at least in many coutries in Europe) gets interrupted once a day and in that case, the connection gets often another IP when reestablished. Not only, that the user is able to post again because of the now used, not blocked IP but also another user could be blocked because she/he is now the one with the blocked IP. That's not very likely but it's not impossible.

Tschö, Auge
