This one is feature I missing most of all.

Can Askbot log current user ip-address? Somtimes it can be really helpful.


Update:

My request is not about analytic system. I use askbot to build a small q&a community accessible mostly from my ISP network and currently I need to view user IP-address in user posts or profiles.


Update 2:

Accidentally found Askbot branch with prob. all desired functionality: possibility to display and block certain IP - askbot-blockip

True, there is a branch that allows blocking IP addresses, we'll merge it when we have the time for that. Last time I tried there was a difficult issue, so it was postponed.

I don't believe askbot does what you're looking for at the moment.

django-tracking or something like that is probably what you want.

I already use a traffic analytic system, but thats not what I'm looking. I use askbot to build a small q&a community accessible mostly from my ISP network and currently I need to view user IP-address in user posts or profiles. Pretty sure, my case isn't only one.

Ah, if you want the users IP address to appear alongside every post, then I don't believe that that's something Askbot does at the moment. Sounds like a feature request. http://bugs.askbot.org/projects/askbot/issues?set_filter=1&tracker_id=2 is a good place to post feature requests (if you didn't already know)
