Block comments from a particular IP?

Post by accampbell » Wed Mar 27, 2013 11:01 am

Thanks to previous advice here I can now block all comments. But when I open comments again after several days I find I am still getting lots of spam comments from one IP. Is there any way to block these? I installed Spamblock[SURBL] but there is no spanner symbol to configure it. Is this possible?

Thanks for this useful link. Actually, I've just found that my ISP (Zen) has a facility on their cpanel which does this as well.

Best wishes,

Anthony

Well, if you keep having problems with automated spam and or captchas, you could also read this last post.

Yes, I'd seen that previously but I wasn't too clear about how to configure spamblock(bayes). I'll have another go at it.
