I want to log the IP address in an effort to determine as much as I can about each visitor to my site at www.theonedollarchallenge.com for marketing purposes.  Is there a good plugin for this?

Hi,

This should all already be done for you by Apache in the access logs. If you look at your website setup it should specify where the access logs are being stored. If you are behind a load-balancer, you will want to change your logs to record "X-Forward-For" instead of IP because the IP will just show the load balancer.

You could also use Google analytics to give you a lot more information about your visitors.
