    Addendum to IP address in user profile. It is specifically showing up in Forums—>Forum replies created. It shows the avatar, the username, the role and the IP address. How do I remove that information from the profile

    It’s ¬†normal in forums to show ip address. Basically it’s telling the user that if you spam we know your ip and will ban you.

    Hi,

    Thanks modemlooper for the input. However, IP addresses and spam control are administrative functions. They are useful for the site administrator or may be the moderators, but not the lay user. Request you / BP designers to consider amending the design appropriately.

    Wouldn’t say it’s normal but can be displayed but not best practise, mods admins generally have access to this level of¬† information, there’s not really a need to inform the general public of someones IP.

     

    This however is a bbPress issue not BP so you will need to raise the mater on their forums support.
