Wrong Geo-Location Information 7 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 1
in JoomlaWatch 1.2.7 I get wrong Geo-Location Information. Getting the info about visitor's lacations was the main reason why I installed this component. Is there some possibility to fix incorrect data?

You can try to update the jos_joomlawatch_ip2country table from:
ip-to-country.webhosting.info/

I Try to download the csv files from ip-to-country.webhosting.info
and import it via phpmyadmin. It correct the problem...

but it would not correct the previous wrong country detection...
if you want to do so, you need to change it manualy on jos_joomlawatch

the easiest way is empty that table...

Hi,
I am encountering the same problem of wrong geo-location. Though I am in India it always shows in Australia.
When I click on the globe tooltip in joomlawatch stats page the popup map shows the IP in India but joomla watch left and right panes display as if the IP is in Australia. This is very annoying. I guess it has to be fixed on priority basis.

Hi,
once again.. the database is from the 3rd party. I cannot edit it.
Please report it to: ip-to-country.webhosting.info/
And if this will be fixed in the sql file they provide, then, in some next version there might be the newest ip2country database.<br><br>Post edited by: matto, at: 2008/10/13 02:40

It seems that the problem is not the IP DB. Wrong country displayed is ALWAYS somehow related to the next/previous displayed country!!!

If the DB is wrong then it is always wrong the same way and not wrong according to previous/next IP/country?!

It seems that the problem is not the IP DB. Wrong country is always the same as next/previous visitor country.

If the DB is wrong then it should be always wrong the same way.
It can not be wrong according to next/previous visitor?! It seems to me as a bug. Using JoomlaWatch 1.2.8b.

Hi Igor,
you may be right. I've reproduced it this way, that when there are 2 or more country flags below each other, you have to click one of them, and sometimes, the window shows some different country. It will be fixed some next devel version, and no icon will be there instead the same flag. But I'm wondering why this ip2country db cannot give the right country <br><br>Post edited by: matto, at: 2008/10/17 14:57
