[resolved] Does the White list support an IP range? (3 posts)

    As a precaution, I would like to add a range of IPs to the white list. Does the Plugin support this and if so, what is the formatting?

    I am afraid that the white list only handles single ips.

    I will look into adding subnets using the ip/subnet format.

    I will release the current beta when WordPress 3.5 is released, I may get the new format working before then, but if I don't, I'll put it in the next beta and you can download it.

    Tee beta version on blogseye.com now uses an IP range mask for a black list and white list. The format is: where 24 is the number of bits. This is a standard format for IP and the 24 is called the MASK. In this case the 24 is the first three parts of the IP, so anything that starts 123.123.123 will be white listed or black listed. to block anything that starts 123.123 would be, etc.

    Please download and install the beta and let me know if it stops the right IPs. It looks like it is working on my test blogs which stop a few thousand spammers a day.

    There is a chart that explains masks and has a complete list:
