IP2Location

Post by Frank Dux »

Is it possible to be able to incorporate one of the popular IP2Location files such as IP2LOCATION-LITE-DB1.CSV in a way that it you can use/lookup either country names or codes to determine additional actions.

Examples might include:
- If IP matches country code CN then block
- If IP matches country code KR then go to this page (which is in Korean)
- If IP matches country code RU then "Auto menu" over here to display a different page

Definitely a good idea. ELWIPLOC is an add-on that will have a future release that pulls IP metadata - location being one of the things it pulls out. Didn't think of this use case, but it would make total sense to have the channel's location metadata available via text variables.
