Improve ip country detection (especially make it work for ipv6 users)

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      In block_partners we do country detection using a country table - and this is replicated on local_hub too (badly - with no data source defined) and possibly in other sites we've not found yet.

      Some problems with this:

      • It doesn't work with IPv6
      • It requires the big country ip table to be copied onto each site
      • No idea how accurate it is.

      We should find a better way of doing it (even if its just making it one webservice used by all community sites)
