Display your visitors IP address on your site

Display your Visitors IP Address This tutorial explains how to display your visitors IP address on your Website or Blog using a php script. You can see a demo located in the sidebar right here on my blog. The file is actually called into the template as an image file. It’s a simple php code and the process is straightforward. So let’s get started.

Display Visitors IP Address Tutorial:

Step 1. Create a new.txt document on your desktop

Step 2. Copy the following code into the new.txt document

<?php
$img_number = imagecreate(180,20);
$backcolor = imagecolorallocate($img_number,70,73,80);
$textcolor = imagecolorallocate($img_number,255,255,255);
imagefill($img_number,0,0,$backcolor);
$number = ” Your IP Address $_SERVER[REMOTE_ADDR]”;
Imagestring($img_number,2,2,2,$number,$textcolor);
header(“Content-type: image/jpeg”);
imagejpeg($img_number);
?>

Step 3. Rename the new.txt document ip.php and upload it to the root of your website

Step 4. Log into your WordPress administration panel and locate a template file where you would like to display the visitors IP address. I use a sidebar text widget

Step 5. Copy the following code into your template replacing the address with your website address

<img src=”//yoursite.com/ip.php”>

To change the colors, edit backcolor and textcolor img_number RGB numeric values
To change the font size, edit the imagestring numeric values

That’s all there is to it,
Enjoy!
