Vanilla 2.8.1 - Ban Rules Problem


Incapable to add ban rule. Getting the following message

  • Duplicate entry 'IPAddress-201.7.nnn.68' for key 'UX_Ban'|Gdn_Database|Query|insert `GDN_Ban` (`BanType`, `BanValue`, `Notes`, `CountUsers`, `InsertUserID`, `DateInserted`, `InsertIPAddress`) values (:BanType, :BanValue, :Notes, :CountUsers, :InsertUserID, :DateInserted, :InsertIPAddress)

Any thoughts and suggestions are welcome,



  • Can you set for another IP?

    It says duplicate, is that IP already listed (either if you look in dashboard or directly in database)?

    It's weird... when I click "save" within the "add ban rule page" it does not return to previous page.

    Within the ban rule list page the icons or links of "edit" and "delete" are transparent and I just noticed.

    So, maybe the theme I'm using has some CSS issues or there is some issue that might need maintenance. Anyway, for me, I found alternatives as I discovered the transparent links issue.

    BTW: I'm using +Baseline as desktop theme and pt_BR as localization

    thanks and regards,
