  • perfect! just what I need
  • Hi just installed this and get the following error... any ideas? :)

    Notice: Undefined index: IPBLOCKER_ADDRESSES in /vhost/vhost6/u/d/b/ on line 29
  • Love the brick wall.
  • Uploaded version 0.2 (Beta) of IPBlocker.
  • @mbd - Sorry, should have tested the last minute change I made on a 'fresh' installation.

    'Undefined index' - now fixed.

    Working on an option to block an address directly from the 'Comment'.
  • Nice! Thanks!
  • Nice.

    I take it there will soon be a way to unblock an IP as well?

    Another suggestion: Timed blocks that automatically expire after a certain duration.
  • This would be ideal to block persistent spammers but my attackers seem to use a different IP address every time.
    Never mind, GuestPost stops the bulk of them.

    As a matter of interest, what happens when a user behind a blocked IP tries to post, do they get a message?
  • At the moment when someone from a blocked address tries to access any page on the forum they get a message that their IP Address has been blocked.

    The plan is that they will be taken to the sign-in page with a message that their address has been blocked with an option to request their address is unblocked. Anyone with the correct privilege will be able to sign-in even though their address has been blocked.

    I have the 'block/unblock address' from each comment working, and I'll post this as soon as I have run a few more tests.

    I agree that this is not going to help if your problem user continually changes their address - any ideas?
  • Uploaded version 0.8 (Beta) of IPBlocker.
  • Uploaded version 1.0 of IPBlocker.
  • A problem here !
    When I activate this add-on, the whole forum shuts down and only white page shows up !
    Wadda ?!
  • You using Safari 3 Beta mate?
    I had the same problem with Safari 2, but 3 beta seems to work OK.
    Leopard's out any day now, hang tight, or loose but hang!
  • Actually, I am using Safari 3 beta. do u recommend using firefox to activate it ?
  • i'm on my toes waitn' for it, body. can wait no more for our little cat. Heey kitty kitty kitty =D
  • Try FireFox, can't hurt.
  • @Mac Lover - I've not been able to test IPBlocker on a Mac yet. Works OK with Safari 3 on a PC.

    I'm off in the next few days to climb Kilimanjaro, but I'll do some testing on our Mac when I get back :)

    In the meantime I have uploaded a new version that does a better job of page redirecting (I hope!) which might fix your problem.
    The new version requires the latest version of Vanilla (1.1.3)
  • Uploaded version 1.1 of IPBlocker.
  • Uploaded version 1.1 of IPBlocker.
  • still not working for me body =S
