Does WP-Ban work on htaccess? (5 posts)

    Before I install WP-Ban .... I'm looking for something to block the IP addresses of the k.daniel spamming. I was looking at Spam Nuker, but that warns that the htaccess may be impacted. I'm using htaccess, because my blog isn't in the root directory, and don't want to mess that up.

    So, does WP-Ban do something to htaccess? I didn't see a description of how it works on lesterchan.net .

    nope it does not, it does using wordpress. You might want to look at some screenshots http://lesterchan.net/wordpress/screenshots/browse/wp-ban/

    Thanks for the extra help. I've installed WP-Ban, and it seems to be working as designed.

    It's not your problem, but after installing reCaptcha, I'm still cleaning out spam from Akismet. I conclude that spammers are attacking through by responding as trackbacks rather than as comments.

    Might I suggest the Bad Behavior plugin?
