    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 is banned too.

    Does the space after commas matters?

    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.

    try 108.162.

    looks like adding a dot at the end is working.
