Trent, I installed this and the install went smoothly. How can I test this or know that it’s actually working? What differences would I see? I didn’t see any testing procedure in the FAQ at http://www.homelandstupidity.us
Thanks for sharing the procedure.
The standalone version doesn’t have the ability to log, so it is difficult to test it without having someone do something that Bad Behavior doesn’t like! That being said, I am 99.9% sure it would be working if you are still able to bring up your forums because if you install it incorrectly, it will not let you access your pages and block everything until you get it right.
The good thing about Bad Behavior is, install and forget about it!
Hi Trent, Merry Christmas. I did install it and it apparently was working since someone got blocked :yikes: I could not find any logging anywhere, and to fix it yourself with the code provided

you need to log in to the ioerror/homelandstupidity site here:
But with the IP that was blocked. So, with no logging and no way to know why this legitimate user was blocked, I disabled it. I was looking at the logging a bit (using bad-behavior-wordpress.php as an example as suggested) but I haven’t figured it out yet. I was hoping there was a config section with four lines like WP or BB, where I could enter the DB details, but it’s not there
So, turned off for now. It was doing something though, I just don’t know what or why.
I’m not sure if this worked but …
I added in the standard Plugin header to the bad-behavior-generic.php file (see below) and then copied it and the rest of the bad-behavior folder up to bbPress. It turned on. I’m trying to sort out how to hack the wordpress plugin. I’m running the same DB for wp and bb so, in theory, this should work easily. It’s not Fatal errors.
