WP-Ban
Won't uninstall and redirects incorrect IP addresses (4 posts)

    When I go to my website, http://freenclearstuff.com/, I am getting the banned error message I created through this plug-in - but only if I go to it without the www. http://www.freenclearstuff.com works fine. I have not banned my IP address - nor my hosts IP address - and am still getting the error that WP-Ban sends to people that are on the banned list. I have also uninstalled (using Wp-Ban's uninstall interface) and am STILL getting that message. My redirects in my .htaccess have non-www traffic going to www - so, it's not a problem with the .htaccess.

    Ok - I figured out the problem - This plugin will not work with wp-super-cache at all. These two plug-ins are completely incompatible and Donncha (Wp-SuperCache's Dev) recommends not using the two of them together at all. I fixed the straggling error message by clearing the cache. Now that Kill-a-bot is no longer working and SuperCache doesn't work with banning plugins because it cache's the banned message pages, I will really need to come up with something else for combating spam - other than manually adding EVER entry to the .htaccess file. Any suggestions?

    I have a little script that adds the IP to the .htaccess automatically. One of these days I should blog about it....

    That would be awesome Donncha - Where can someone get a copy of the script or is it publicly available?
