Any time that you need a link for someone to click so you may track them to their ip address you can now create a tracker node. This comes in especially handy for verifying facebook and social media contacts through the chat window are actually in the country they say. Just create a node with any content and paste the following scripting code example. Notice how php is mixed with the shortcodes in this example.
Give out the address of the node in your chat window only so no one but the intended user is involved. To check on the results enter the node’s address and ip_log.txt in to your browser window. There are many free resources on the internet such as mxtoolbox.com for tracing the ip address to the country of origin.
Example output address : http://www.yoursite.com/thenode/ip_log.txt
