    First check that the flags found exists inside the plugins/geoipflags/ folder and that images exist in there.
    Plugin also assumes that the default url of your plugins folder is

  • Error in default.php

    echo '<td><img src="/plugins/geoipusers/flags/' . $countrycode . '.png" alt="' . $countrycode . '" /></td>';

    I change geoipusers for GeoIPFlags but not work :(

    Do you mean they do not show in the dashboard.

    First off it requires version 2.1

    Second - it believe it may have the wrong permission on all the files when you unzip
    they all pretty much need 755 permissions, or don't they.

    third - what is in the .dat file - make me wonder what it does. hard to tell whether there is anything i don't want in there (paranoia vs. suspicion).

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    I use Vanilla and get this plugin to work through the following steps:

    line 39:

    $countrycode = geoip_country_code_by_addr($handle, $Sender->EventArgs['User']->LastIPAddress);

    change for

    $countrycode = strtolower(geoip_country_code_by_addr($handle, $Sender->EventArgs['User']->LastIPAddress));

    line 41:

    echo '<td><img src="/plugins/geoipusers/flags/' . $countrycode . '.png" alt="' . $countrycode . '" /></td>';

    change for

    echo '<td><img src="/plugins/GeoIPFlags/flags/' . $countrycode . '.png" alt="' . $countrycode . '" /></td>';`

    On unix systems the paths are case sensitive, which is why the above change are needed.

    I also needed to change the path to GeoIP.dat

    I ended up rolling my own plugin:
