BBQ: Block Bad Queries
[resolved] maybe an interaction with some antispam plugins (8 posts)

    I have tested two different plugins based on the same concept - spammers list - http://wordpress.org/plugins/avh-first-defense-against-spam/ and http://wordpress.org/plugins/stop-spammer-registrations-plugin/. If someone is blocked, it should show a message.

    They look to work nice but some of my visitors complain they could not post comment. They saw a "mysterious red border square" and their comment cannot be sent - the same problem with the two plugins and on two different sites with different templates. And no warning message.
    The solution was to add their IP on whitelist but it was strange I cannot explain this problem.

    The last visitor with problem help me to make some test and it seems that BBQ was the problem - after desactivation, the visitor could post.

    In order to investigate I need the URL(s) that are getting blocked.

    I don't know how to get this for you... If you have some clues I will be happy to help.

    Sure, just look at the browser's address bar when the page is blocked (or doesn't work).

    Well, the problem is that block is managed by IP address and I have to wait to someone who is blocked. And as I don't want people to be blocked, I did desactivate BBQ :-)

    That works! If you happen to catch one of the blocked URLs, let me know :)

    Just a remark: it looks that the "strange red square" is not related to BBQ - it shows for some visitors even with BBQ desactivated.

    Thanks for the follow-up. Glad to hear that it's not BBQ causing the issue.
