I’ve got Akismet running, but I’d like to keep users with a specific IP address from creating spam accounts on my site.
Is there a way to block an IP address?
Is this the best solution?
Will Akismet prevent these spammers from spamming in bbPM?
And is there a way to set it so that posts with a specific keyword–like curses–cannot show up or get flagged for the admin?
These are my current plugins.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
There is this content filter plugin:
I believe it’s a paid plugin.
There is no built in way to block by IP in bbPress. If you have access to .htaccess on your host, you can deny by IP there, but that’s a manual solution.
deny from 22.214.171.124 (one IP)
deny from 012.34.5. (IP block)
allow from all
You would put that in your forum’s .htacccess file.
You could also moderate all posts:
