How do I test geoIP

How do I test geoIP

However I do have a question - if I created modules for the Russian visitors using the geoIP database how can I test it works if I am in England?

Re: How do I test geoIP

Hi - that's a good question. It's going to be a bit tricky.

First of all I'd try to find a web proxy service based in Russia. Then call up your web site via the proxy.

Second, I'd try to find someone in Russia to test it for me!

Lastly, you can simply cheat if you want to know what the module is going to look like - test for GB instead of RU, and trust that when people really are from RU then they're going to see the same thing you just tested with GB.

Hope that helps,
Stephen
