Banned Email Domain wildcards no longer work (8 posts)

    In wpmu you used to be able to use wildcards to ban all of one type of domain for instance /.*\.info/ to ban all .info domains.

    In wordpress 3.0 this seems to no longer work, in fact all my previous wild card entries seem to have been filtered out, and if I try to add them again some kind of filter removes them.

    Anyone know how this might be resolved?

    Thanks in advance.

  2. File a trac ticket. :)

    ok so I went back and checked, and now it seems that addresses that are clearly listed in the list of banned email domains, are still able to set up blogs...is this a known bug? Did something not update correctly? Anyone know a fix?

    Thanks in advance.

  5. Perchance are you using Buddypress?

    so I got a tip, that now you can just put .tld (example .info) and it will work...I have tried it and so far it seems to be working.

    So to sumarize, you don't need to use the wildcards you just write .info, or .co.cc or .ru or whatever (as opposed to something@blah.ru)

    I will let you know if it continues to work.

  8. so I got a tip, that now you can just put .tld (example .info) and it will work.

    That's how it always worked.
