Description

There are a number of occasions in which a WP admin will need to look up the IP address of a commenter. This address is shown on the main comment listing page but not on the individual "Edit comment" page.

But the fastest and easiest way to get commenter information is to click "edit" on the comment itself (theme allowing). The resulting admin page allows a number of actions but does not display the IP address of the commenter.

To find the IP address, the site admin then has to go to the main comment listing page and search by commenter name or email address. Showing the IP address on the individual comment pages will remove two steps from this process.
