Show IP address

Description

Shows Your IP address

The idea is simple, give it a go, let me know what you think of this plugin. Any suggested updates I’ll consider in each build.

Great for:

  • Your home page
  • Posts
  • Pages

Dashboard widget:

  • I have also included a link to a wiki page which covers information to do with IP addresses.

This is a FREE plugin

This simply shows the IP address of a visitor if they land on a specific page, you simply put your tag where you want your visitor to see there IP address, and that’s it!

This tag works on specific pages or widgets by simply adding in the tag [show_ip]. Your IP address also shows on your admin dashboard.

To show an IP address on any of your pages you could use:

What’s my IP address: [show_ip]

Reviews

Works perfect

Even though this plugin is not updated for several years it works just perfect. We use it on our support pages so clients can see their own IP address when we need it.

Developer fixed "invalid header" problem

UPDATE: Developer fixed problem so I am changing my 1-star review to 5-stars as it is working great now. Thank you!

—- Original Review —-

Can not activate the plugin. When I try I get the following message:

The plugin does not have a valid header.

A work in progress

I thought I would create a simple plugin,that does what its meant to do, it’s simple and it works.

Working on a few issues to do with ‘shell_exec()’ but apart from that it works.

Poor Support – Dashboard Errors UPDATED!

As promised, the plugin has been revised/updated and returned to it’s roots of being a plugin designed to show one’s IP and doing it correctly and effectively. Glad to see we were able to get things sorted! Thank you so much for listening and working with feedback, author!

Updated to 5 stars for doing what it’s meant to do, simple and well!

ORIGINAL REVIEW ( 1 Star )
Created support topic over 2 months ago.

https://wordpress.org/support/topic/disabled-shell_exec

Even went so far as to attempt to contact him via his personal site to ensure he was made aware of this problem and support topic via http://www.keith-griffiths.com/contact-me

No reply at all.

Creator boasts “Any suggested updates I’ll consider in each build.” but can’t be bothered to provide support for an issue that has arisen specifically from this plugin.

1 star, because no lower rating is available, due to errors and nonexistent support.
