#1923 closed defect (bug) (reported-upstream)

Forums should have a way to search for posts made from a particular IP address

Reported by: sergeybiryukov's profile SergeyBiryukov Owned by: netweb's profile netweb
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords:


After the upgrade to bbPress 2.x, there's no longer a way to quickly view the poster's IP address, or search for all posts made from that IP.

Previously, IP address was displayed in the author info block for each post, with a link to all posts made from that IP.

Currently, IP address is only displayed in a meta box in the admin when editing a post, and there's no way to search for all posts made from that IP.

Apparently it's not just search by IP that's missing, currently there's no way to search for a particular user's posts at all. Created #2490 for that.

I'm going to close this as a duplicate of #bbPress2908 for now.

If the mods find that this is needed urgently enough we can bump the priority and/or re-open it for a implementation.
