I think my problem is related to others that have posted, but Im not sure. I have the latest version of WordPress (3.5.1) and Visitor Maps Extended Referer Field (1.2.2).
Basically, when I try to ban an IP address by clicking the button next to the IP address, my site goes down giving "Internal Server Error" message. Ive narrowed the problem down to the .htaccess file. When I ban an IP, it adds the following code:
# BEGIN Visitor Maps Extended # BEGIN banned ips <Limit GET POST> order allow,deny deny from 188.8.131.52 allow from all </Limit> # END banned ips # END Visitor Maps Extended
I can simply edit the .htaccess file (no need to uninstall the plugin) and remove the code above to fix the issue. But of course, the plugin does not work.
Any idea how to fix this? This is a great idea for a plugin and would love to get it working.
