isp addresses of blog visitors?

  1. I was wondering if there is a way to see the ISP addresses of visitors to my blog and/or block a certain ISP.

    The blog I need help with is hopeagain.wordpress.com.

  2. We need a link to your blog in order to answer that.

  3. Thanks.

    There isn't any add-on I'm aware of that will give you full IP addresses of blog viewers. Of course you can get the IPs of anyone who comments, but not anyone who reads; I believe sitemeter and statcounter will give you partial IPs, though. You can ban a particular IP from commenting, but not reading. And with IP bans, you're probably banning a large selection of innocent people as well, since IPs are rarely completely isolated to one computer anymore.

  4. Okay, I'll check out those sites. Thanks! How do I block an IP from commenting? The person I want to block has never commented, but I'd rather not have the option open...

  5. You go to Settings->Discussion and there's a place in there where you can blacklist an IP. Be aware, you'll be blocking a lot of other people at the same time.

  6. Wouldn't the other ppl I'm blocking be near the same location, though? The person I want to block is in Japan, and as far as I know, she's the only one reading in Japan...

  7. Presumably they would be.

  8. If you have their email address or username, better to ban or send to moderate instead. That way it is specific to a person.
