iQ Block Country
[resolved] not showing the country in administration (2 posts)

    I installed the plugin to be able to block users from accessing the backend.
    When I checked the note in administration it showed this:
    Your IP address is xx.xx.33.219, xx.xx.33.219. The country that is listed for this IP address is .
    (please note that I removed the first 2 bytes of ip address intentionally and the IP is shown twice)

    I checked my IP on MaxMind, it is correctly resolved to FR (at the moment). However, it is not visible in the text above. I wonder if it is a problem with the admin section only or the whole plugin.

    Could you, please, check that?

    Hi Lacike,

    It happened to me once that my own country did not show because I was using a database of more than a year old. I downloaded a new version and my country was shown this time.

    So that may solve things for you as well. In the next version there will be a lookup box for an ip address so you won't have to check at the maxmind site anymore. Maxmind site will sometimes present other data for an ip address as the database they use are updated more often and are of course more accurate than the free version.

    If downloading a new database does not solve things please supply me the ip address (via email if you do not wish to share it on a public forum, or by a reply on the post on my own site)
