Support » Plugin: WP-Ban » Won't uninstall and redirects incorrect IP addresses

  • When I go to my website,, I am getting the banned error message I created through this plug-in – but only if I go to it without the www. works fine. I have not banned my IP address – nor my hosts IP address – and am still getting the error that WP-Ban sends to people that are on the banned list. I have also uninstalled (using Wp-Ban’s uninstall interface) and am STILL getting that message. My redirects in my .htaccess have non-www traffic going to www – so, it’s not a problem with the .htaccess.

  • Ok – I figured out the problem – This plugin will not work with wp-super-cache at all. These two plug-ins are completely incompatible and Donncha (Wp-SuperCache’s Dev) recommends not using the two of them together at all. I fixed the straggling error message by clearing the cache. Now that Kill-a-bot is no longer working and SuperCache doesn’t work with banning plugins because it cache’s the banned message pages, I will really need to come up with something else for combating spam – other than manually adding EVER entry to the .htaccess file. Any suggestions?

    I have a little script that adds the IP to the .htaccess automatically. One of these days I should blog about it….

    That would be awesome Donncha – Where can someone get a copy of the script or is it publicly available?
