Strange characters beneath user profile picture.

  • fuel2water


    Hi folks,

    I constantly have some kind of weird characters right beneath the user profile picture. Looks like a MAC-address or something.


    Here is the link to my forum and the strange characters mentioned. Maybe someone is able to source this kind of problem. I really have no clue and it looks quite annoying.

    Thanks a lot in advance!
    Have a great day.

    I believe it’s supposed to show an ip address. No idea why it’s showing that though.

    I’ll create a ticket and once I’m back home at my computer and update this with some potential solutions, the good thing though is only keymasters will see this, your users and moderators won’t.

    Add the following CSS to your custom CSS and you should be good to go:

    #bbpress-forums span.bbp-author-ip {
    word-wrap: break-word;

    I have added word-wrap: break-word; to bbPress CSS in #2675

    span.bbp-author-ip {
    	font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Arial, Helvetica, 'Nimbus Sans L', sans-serif;
    	font-size: 11px;
    	font-weight: bold;
    	word-wrap: break-word;
    	color: #aaa;



    Dear Stephen, you seem to be an awesome person! This worked like a charm. Thanks a lot, made my day.


    Cool, glad it fixed it for you 🙂

    I’ve been using IPv6 heaps lately for testing but my equivalent in IPv6 is ::1, thus it wasn’t an issue locally 😉
