[resolved] Feature Request: List IP address of search in reports (7 posts)

    This has always been a handy little plugin and I thank you for putting it out there.

    A client of mine wanted to know if the IP address of the actual search could be added to this plugin's reporting interface. I found this to be a good point, as it could be an additional tool for keeping spammers and robots that you do want crawling the site, off of the site.

    I am just wondering if this is something that could be implemented in a future release? If not, I might just add it myself.

    Thanks!

    Or is it possible to track what user did the search?

    I actually managed to add tracking of user information in the search detail.

    // Other useful details of the search
    		global $current_user;
    		get_currentuserinfo();
    		$details = $current_user->user_email . " ";

    btw you can see the ip address by clicking on "last 100/500 searches" and then clicking on "Show details".

    Odd.

    I am not seeing a "Show Details" option when going to the last 100/500 searches or anywhere else with the plugin's menus.

    My mistake.

    I did not have "Keep detailed information about recent searches (taken from HTTP headers)" enabled.

    @NosCoffin, you've solved your own problem -- as you discovered, the "Keep detailed information" option allows you to see the searchers' IP addresses and browser strings, among other information.

    @debil123, tracking WP user details is a goodidea. I may include that in a future version.
