Visitor IP tracker plugin

  1. Hey
    I'm not sure if something to this effect is already possible; if it is, please let me know.
    What I was basically hoping for is something along the lines of this plugin - http://www.642weather.com/weather/scripts-wordpress-visitor-maps.php; that is, something that tracks the IPs or the locations of the visitors. Going by the data collected by the existing visitor tracker and comment system, this should be easily possible. All it would require is that the visitor tracking is extend beyond the origin country alone.
    Would that be possible?

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

  2. For privacy reasons, IP addresses aren't shared on WordPress.com. I don't see this changing any time soon.

    You can post a non-JavaScript version of Feedjit in a text widget but be aware that if you do it's a big turn-off to many readers so they will click out never to return again.

    I repeat that we can only use the HTML version (non-Javascript) so be sure you get the correct code. HTML feedjit code for wordpress.com blogs, MySpace, Windows Live Spaces, LiveJournal and Hi5 users > http://feedjit.com/joinimg/

    Step 1: Customize It! (Choose your color scheme, widget width, and the maximum number of entries to be displayed.)
    Step 2: Copy the code into your site HTML or into a text widget and display it in your sidebar.

  4. P.S. Let me also add that IPs are not unique and have not been for over a decade. ISPs save money by placing hundreds of us in the same IP block. hence the information you seek will not be accurately portrayed. Moreover, many of us have dynamic IPs that are ever changing. In my case the IP never ever tells you where I'm actually situated and my so-called location changes from day to day and even hour to hour.

  5. Thank you guys :)

    Yeah, I knew about the IPv4's redundancy. I just wanted to check anyway.
