Support » Plugin: iQ Block Country » The "banned message" is not reliable enough.

  • Hello,

    I really like this plugin.And I don’t understand that why there’re so many people complaint this plugin doesn’t work. That’s not the Owner’s proble.

    And here is a suggestion:

    The people still can see the Website Titles after be Banned. So that’s easy to be found that he has been Banned. So..
    Just think about it. Most people know the VPN,Right? They can still to bother you if they use the Free VPN.Because there’re thousands of Free VPN account or Softwares on the Internet.

    So Just Response the “403,500 Error” Or “503 Error” code are the Best Way.
    Because the people which be banned will think the website will no longer available or the Website owner has given up.

    Best Regards

    That you can sometimes see titles is not something I can do anything about. The plugin lives within the wordpress eco-system that outputs the title before the plugin can do it’s work.

    I doubt if most people know VPN’s 🙂 Either way I don’t think that most bad guys would stop at the a 5xx error. Most hack/spam attempts we see on wordpress are scripted.

    a 5xx user is not something that website owners that have given up would normally supply (a 404 is probably more common).

    Either way which error code is used is a personal opinion. I used the HTTP status code that is supposed to be for forbidden visits 🙂
