Remove IP

Description

Remove IP it’s a really-really-simple plugin to not log the IP address from the people that comment on your wordpress
installation.

This plugin will be useful to people that cannot/or don’t want to use libapache2-mod-removeip (because you don’t use
apache or don’t want to wipe out the IP logging on all vhosts).

Installation

  1. Upload the removeip folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. voila

FAQ

Do I need this?

If you are reading this it’s probably because you are interested on your commenters anonymity. If you don’t, you don’t need this plugin.

Is this going to annonymize the logs of my webserver?

No, sorry. Try libapache2-mod-removeip if you use apache2.

I installed libapache2-mod-removeip, do I need this plugin too?

No, you don’t. The libapache-mod-removeip will hide the IP address from the commenters to wordpress, the same as this plugin does.

Can I use it with wordpress.com stats/google analytics?

Sure, but I’m not sure that you really want to let google or wordpress.com register the IP address from your commenters.

Your plugin is lame!

Yep, I know. I had to make it work for a project that uses nginx as webserver and cannot switch to apache and we got tired
of editing wordpress core files… so I needed it. And it’s always nice to share 🙂
