One of my Discourse sites that attracts about 40 logged-on users a day is seeing spikes of > 500 user profile views on some days.
I’ve used the Dataexplorer plugin to work out that most are from a single IP: 126.96.36.199 which does not appear to be from a registered user.
SELECT user_profile_views.ip_address, COUNT(user_profile_views.ip_address) FROM user_profile_views WHERE viewed_at > '3/24/2018' GROUP BY user_profile_views.ip_address ORDER BY COUNT(user_profile_views.ip_address) DESC
I’m aware of the prior posts on this subject but the Topics are all closed.
Anyone still seeing this? Any thoughts?
I have taken action and now set this setting:
hide user profiles from public Disable user cards, user profiles and user directory for anonymous users.
Any more advice would be appreciated.
