    So, what does the user at a computer with a banned IP address see when they try to access my WordPress site and IP Ban is enabled?

    Thanks!

    Peace...

    Hy,

    It will access the URL typed in REDIRECT URL input field.

    Thanks. Is the REDIRECT URL field a required field? I thought I had installed this plugin but didn't specify a URL at the time I posted the question above. It seems I've since removed the plugin so I can't verify if that field was blank or not.

    In any event, if the REDIRECT URL isn't specified, what happens when a computer with a banned IP address tries to access the WordPress blog?

    Thanks!

    Peace...

    Ok, I just re-installed the plugin and apparently I DID have it installed, at one point. How do I know this? Because an IP address I had banned re-appeared when I looked at the IP Ban settings. :)

    This means when I removed the plugin before, it didn't cleanup after itself properly.

    So, when does the list of banned IP addresses get deleted? When the plugin is deactivated or when it's deleted?

    Thanks!

    Peace...
