Ban User By IP
Does it really work? (2 posts)

    I installed the Ban User By IP plugin because I consistently see several different IPs attempting to login as amdin. Two IPs which I added to the ban list using this plugin still show up as attempting to login as admin. Should I even be seeing these continued login attempts if those IPs have been banned? something tells me that if they are still able to reach my login page to enter a login attempt, they are in fact not banned from access.

    The ban is done during "init" hook, see http://adambrown.info/p/wp_hooks/hook/init for more detail.
    They can't no more access to the login page ( yourblog.com/wp-admin )
    Upgrade also the plugin to 1.03
