4 weeks ago
to white list a range of IP addresses, can I use a IP format like 184.108.40.206/15 (this is cloudflare IP range)?
You can whitelist a range of IPs, but not with that particular notation. Instead just write:
In other words, think pattern matching 😉
Awesome! Thank you! 😊

Sorry, reopened the ticket.
I whitelisted 108.162 but 220.127.116.11 is banned too.
Does the space after commas matters?
Request URI: /blog/?blackhole=eb82efeb7f
IP Address: 18.104.22.168
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_9_2) AppleWebKit/537.75.14 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/7.0.3 Safari/537.75.14
It could be a bug if something related changed in the latest version of WP.. a couple of things to try:
– try 108.162.
– try with and without the comma space (it shouldn’t matter)
Also make sure the IP actually is banned and not just recorded in the log.
If those things don’t help then it could be a bug, but it was working fine the last time I checked.

looks like adding a dot at the end is working.
Awesome, will update the docs to let others know. Thanks for reporting.
