en WordPress.com Forums › Support Banning an IP Author Posts May 12, 2007 at 6:30 pm #105862 urbandinerMember I’ve got a couple nutbars surfing my site. Is it possible to ban their IPs? If it is, can you please tell me how?

One word or IP per line. It will match inside words, so “press” will match “WordPress”. However, blacklisting IPs is not recommended as it’s not usually effective. These types simply get another IP and start all over again. May 12, 2007 at 7:08 pm #106142 dirkgentlyMember Yeah, it still jumps into your spam folder. IP’s don’t get banned here, no matter what they do. Author Posts The topic ‘Banning an IP’ is closed to new replies.
