Support » Plugin: Banhammer » Does not work on MultiSite!

  • Because the info on this plugin says nothing about it, I feel obligated to do so:
    It does NOT work on MultiSite, unfortunately 🙁

    It looked very promising, the author announcing it on his own website with the words “waaay too much fun”. And I can imagine it is indeed, but not if you are running a multisite installation and find out your site has had no protection whatsoever, since installing this plugin.

    So, in this case: no, it’s not waaaay too much fun, unfortunately…

    Wow, thanks Patrick. Months of hard work given away for free. So sorry I forgot to mention that it is not yet developed on Multisite. I’m only one person, trying to share free plugins like Banhammer to the WP community. Apologies for not meeting your expectations.

    Also, FYI for anyone else reading, leaving a negative review without giving the author any chance to explain, or try to help, needlessly hurts developers and is very unfair. If you have a question about plugin support or anything, please first post in the plugin support forum. That way you give devs a chance to help and resolve any issue. For people that do this, hard-working plugin developers thank you in advance for being thoughtful and helpful.

    Jeff, I am not saying anything about your hard work.. I even said that I can imagine that it is a fun way to block, but just not on MultiSite and that is what my experience is.

    Yeah thanks so much. Could have just sent an email and let me know about your experience. Instead you chose to stick it to me via poor review. I get it. Thanks.

    Well, you made my blogs vulnerable…. Had 5 hack attempts today. So no, thank you.

    You are saying that I tried hacking your site 5 times today? I don’t think so..

    No, that is not what I said< Jeff. Never claimed it was you. I said I had 5 hack attempts on my blogs. And without protection, they almost succeeded. If I had known your plugin was not MS compatible, I would never have installed it. 🙂

    It sounds like you had a bad experience and decided to take it out on me, by leaving a negative review. That is fine, but understand that I have done nothing wrong; I am only trying to help people by providing free plugins 🙂

    When you create a “security plugin” you have to be extra cautious. Since you didn’t warn anyone, I felt I had to.

    Well, okay, because of all your hard efforts, I upped it to 3 stars. 🙂 I realize you put a lot of time into it and the interface does look great and promising. Just not a 5-star rating from me.

    Trust me, I will make sure to let the whole world know that the plugin is not yet compatible with Multisite. Big, giant letters right on the homepage 🙂

    Good! That is what I had been looking for BEFORE downloading it in the first place 😀

    Yeah you surprised me by changing your rating, so I had to “tone it down” a bit, lol!

    I jumped off a bridge today because there was no sign telling me not to! My God man, give the guy 5-stars! This developer has the best coded plugins on the repository, period.
