  • plugin would enable me to prohibit a specific ip address from posting? In effect, just outright ban someone.

  • can’t you do this from the admin options already? in 1.5 i believe its there

    Kitten’s Spaminator and SpamWords for version 1.2.2. Also, you can hardcode single IPs into a DENY list in .htaccess if you are so inclined. There are lots of options available to do this.

    I was under the impression that it was possible as well, but even after entering an ip in 1.5 the same user with the same ip can still comment.

    my super simple, super dodgy hack will allow you to block ip addresses.

    Eragle, it doesn’t work for me, either. The spam words work, but not an IP address.

    CG-AntiSpam can do IP bans, I’d assume Spam-Karma can as well.

    Frankly, if you want to stop them ‘outside the wall’, but not mod htaccess (eeek), you can use CG-Referrer, and again I’d assume my evil nemesis Referrer-Karma can do so too.

    But from experience, there are only one or two IPs that I’ve seen that have remained static, spammer IPs for more than a day…

    “But from experience, there are only one or two IPs that I’ve seen that have remained static, spammer IPs for more than a day…”

    That’s all I really need. Just a way to stop a spam attack in progress, so I don’t have to sit there all day deleting spam.

    I’m looking for a plugin in which when a particular Ip address goes to the site a 404 page is returned. I’m having troubles with a particular reader/commenter, and although I’ve banned commenting from the IP, the person still reads.
    The problem is I dont want them to read?

    If you are ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY CERTAIN that that is a FIXED IP, then just have it 404 in your htaccess directly.

    Otherwise, plugins like CG-Referrer could be used to bump on a given IP — but you are better off in htaccess for performance reasons…

    narind: Add this to the top of the .htaccess file:

    RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^111\.222\.333\.444
    RewriteRule .* – [F]

    Instant death to the IP. Change the 111.222.333.444 to the correct IP, of course.
