    Hi,

    Before getting this plugin I just wanted to check that it's compatible with wordpress 3.2.1?

    Also does this block users from all countries using the website or just registering?

    For example would it stop users from other countries filling in a contact form on the website?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    The latest version is not tested on that version. The plugin was first developed on v2.9.x so the basic functionality should work.

    The only uncertainty would be the admin page.

    Anyway you should be able to install it, check the admin functionality and if it doesn't work remove this plugin (please do tell if it does not work !). The plugin is non-destructive.

    Users from a country will be blocked from visiting your site so this is both registering as well as filling in a contact form. You can also choose to block people visiting the admin side of your website.

    Hope this helps. If you would like with a little work I will also be able to test it on your specific version.

    Thank you for your response.

    I have just installed it and there don't seem to be any problems with compatibility.

    It seemed to stop for a day but now still getting about 10 spam registrations a day so I have blocked every country except my own from both front and backend. Hoping this works.

    I'm just wondering does blocking countries especially all countries but one effect the websites ranking on google? Will this be a bad for SEO?

    Thanks

    If you block the USA from your frontend this will affect the google bot from indexing your site.

    I think in most countries google search is the most used in some countries however local search engines have a larger audience. But I assume that you will know which search engines those are if they apply to your country :-)

    If you know from which IP addresses the spam registrations are from you can lookup those addresses in the plugin and block that country.
