Can I determine IP of picture adder?
« on: October 29, 2005, 11:47:30 am »

Hello. Someone is adding p0rn pics to my gallery, he don't posts any comments, so I can't see his IP. is there any way to determine his IP? I don't have access to raw log files of webserver.

The IP is displayed to the admin in the pic info section below the picture in intermediate view.

that's the drawback if you allow everybody to upload without approval. Don't trust IP address blocking, with most users being assigned IP addresses dynamically there's little sense in blocking them. Instead: make up your mind on setting up your gallery more restrictively if this really bothers you.

My country is quite small, and 99% visitors are local ones, so it's easy to block them :)

But, as far as I can see, CPG banning system doesn't supports wildcards? like  xxx.xxx.xxx.* ?

no, it doesn't, and you shouldn't. Honestly, trust me on this, I know what I'm talking about.
