Is there a way to disable the display of IP addresses in Who's Online? If you click on Who's Online Now?, you get a display of users. Under the display name, the member's IP address appears. I've been poking around in the Control Panel, but I don't see a place to disable the display of IP addresses. (We want the rest to appear.)

Unless the user group has the site permission "Can see extra user info" they cannot, in fact, see any IP addresses. There is no way to disable the display, short of hacking out code; but that shouldn't really be an issue if you only set this permission for your admin or gm group.

As gizmo stated it is a permission. in the site section.
Can see extra user info

Usually it is hardcoded for admins. But can be turned on or off for other groups.
Since your prior posts indicated that some permissions got hosed by using a default template, Then possibly you need to review the site permissions per group again.
