Sorry, even before I added IP addresses it banned me!
By , for WP 4.0

Imagine my surprise when I activated the program and was immediately banned from my dashboard and even when I tried to access the site via a bookmark.

I went to my hosting site, file manager and deleted the plug in. Deleted me Internet History and re-booted. Still locked out. Had to get the hosting site to fix things. I would think this is a BIG flaw. I don't see the high stars on this one, though I did like the idea of doing a global ban such as 27.159.*.* And BTW my own IP address is nothing like that. So why did activating this sucker (without putting in info.) give me a blank webpage ... "You are banned."

Good idea, needs work. Most hosting sites also have there own IP denial programs but are a bit more tedious and time consuming. Akimset certainly is NOT stopping this traffic as I had to delete some 40 just today. That said it does not lock me out of my own site as WP-ban does.

Thats what I wanted

Works flawlessly on WP 3.9.1 despite 2 negative votes against zero positive which is to my surprising. Highly configurable including the ban message the banned user gets to see. Like it! Thanks for this one :)

The one and only

Works Great.
Replace another blocking system which broke with the WP 3.6.1 update today

Only thing - A more detailed log would be great (and I'd give it 5 stars) - giving the reason for the block

Works fine

The plugin works fine and gives me the control over my weblog, now I can avoid unwelcome visitors!

Doesn't work at all
By , for WP 3.6

I wanted to block a couple of referral sites. Following all the instructions resulted in them still showing up. Ended up having to do it with .htacess

Works brilliantly!

I tried this with a proxy IP and it worked...this is just what I need to stop the usual spammer scum from ruining my site. :)

5 Stars for the idea and more if works
