      Are you having trouble installing ip2nation? Did you try the tutorial I provided, "Installing and configuring ip2nation"?

       

      It’s 1 sql file, yes. You don’t store it with your site files, you import it into the database. How to import it depends of the software you use to access the database, phpMyAdmin has an "import" option in top menu. The easiest solution if you aren’t able to import the sql file is to open a ticket on your webhost provider (http://my NULL.hawkhost NULL.com/aff NULL.php?aff=558) and ask for help, they’ll do it for you or teach you how to use the software they provide.

      If they say that you can’t directly access your database… then move to another host :P

       

      Once you have ip2nation imported, you go to plugin admin page /wp-admin/options-general.php?page=hkEC and add the database name in the first option, ip2nation Database.

       

      Try contacting your host and ask them to import ip2nation for you, then come back and tell me how it worked out ^^

         I tried to upload the file through phpMyadmin into my cPanel (importing it)…didn’t work, an error message shows up…

        After reading your reply I opened a support ticket, asking them if the can do it…

        Once they upload it….do I have to write the database name or leaving it blank…?

        Thanks for your reply..feedback

          homepageIf it’s the same database where Wordpress is installed, leave it blank. If it’s another database you must add database name there.

          Having it in a different database helps to backup, since ip2nation data doesn’t need to be backuped, and also if you have many sites you can have it on a unique place and all sites access it. Remember that Wordpress database user must have access to that database too.participate

            Hi,

            I uploaded the file successfully….(through a video tutorial)….but for some reason, flag didn’t show up…

            I even added the database name in the blank field…and didn’t worked….am I missing something?

            My blog is new and only has 1 comment..maybe I should wait for more comments and see what happens…right?homepage

              In plugin admin page you have a diagnose area, where you can see if it’s working without database part.

               

              If you are using the same database where Wordpress is installed, the field must be blank. Only in case it’s a different database that you must use its full name there, and both databases must have the same database user.

               

              Wordpress’ original comment doesn’t have IP, therefore no flag is used. Internal IPs like 192.168.0.5 also don’t have flag. You must add a comment using a valid Internet IP or edit database adding one. If your IP doesn’t work, edit database comment_author_IP field with 201.9.158.252, it’s the IP used on admin page diagnose.

                "database comment_author_IP field"…..maybe your plugin needs some fixing…

                 

                And the comment is from one friend..not the WP comment….

                  Well if it needs to be fixed, I must know what to fix, because it’s working for me and it’s the plugin I’ve been spending most time developing and enhancing recently;)

                   

                  Country codes are provided by ip2nation based on IP, your IP for exemple is related to Peru. If country code is found, then flag image file URL and path are built. If flag files are in their place, their existance check succeeds and img HTML code is created and returned. If any of these steps fail, image isn’t found and it returns empty, so that no error or invalid markup is generated.

                   

                  You said My blog is new and only has 1 comment, so I understood it wasw Wordpress’ exemple. You must see if that IP is recognized by ip2nation, if you provide it to me I can test it. Or you can change it to a IP we know that works. comment_author_IP is a field in table wp_comments in Wordpress database.

                   

                  So, there are tests you can do to find out what’s wrong:

                  1. ip2nation table installed and accessible by Wordpress
                  2. IP recognized by ip2nation table, retrieving country code – internal LAN IPs aren’t related to any country, and I’ve already seen 1 that wasn’t in their table yet
                  3. flags image files in their place and being found by Wordpress

                   

                  All these are stuff Hikari Enhance Comments just provides or explains how to get, its code just use these resources. In plugin admin page you have a whole diagnose panel to see if each step is working. If I find a bug in code I can fix, but I must know the bug, and ATM everything is working, as you can see in comments and widgets.

                    Hi,

                    ok… this is what I exactly did….

                    1. With a tutorial I created a new user and database and uploaded the file (ip2nations). A successfully message shows up.
                    2. Left the field blank…within the plugin config…..
                      At this part…your plugin should work automatically…the test doesn't show the flag of Brazil..
                    3. My IP shows as..190.234.80.253

                     

                    What else can we do? Thanks

                      Much better :) , now I’m able to have idea of what happens on your site.

                       

                      If you created a new database of ip2nation, your Wordpress user database must be granted access to that new database, so that Wordpress can access it and query IPs info. If needed, ask your host help to assure both tables are accessed by Wordpress. In diagnose panel you can test it seeing if br code and Brasil name is presented.

                       

                      And also, if you use a different database for ip2nation, ip2nation Database option must be set with that database’s name, so that SQL query knows which database to access. Pay attention that most hosts use a prefix for database names and don’t use exactally the name you provided, you must use the whole database name.

                       

                      Try these 2 and see if it works :)

        The database I created was "flags"…..so with the prefix is something like….. skdjdjd_flags

        I do not have to write this on the field? do I?

        I sent a message to hosting support…asking if they can verify the WP access to my database..

          research

          In cPanel, by default, each database has its own user. So, just creating a new database it won’t be accessible by Wordpress. Wordpress database user (set in wp-config.php as DB_USER) must have access granted to your ip2nation database. Your host can help you in that.

           

          And plugin option must be set with this database name, yes :)

    Hello Hikari,

    I'm curious about the possibility of using commenter's country flags as avatars (instead of gravatar, etc) using ip detection. I don't know if you are available for freelance projects, but in case you are, you can contact at the email address submitted.

    Regadrs,

      feedbackHello. Using the flag as avatar is easy to implement and doesn’t require theme support, I believe :)

      I’ve mailed you. If you wanna hire me I can develop your request in a few hours, otherwise I’ll implement it in next plugin update.information
