Ideally, if it is that simple to feed WPBAN with the IPs from Akismet I’d love to see a next version of WPBan storing IPs more in a table format, sortable and with the option to automatically feed WPBan with IPs from AKismet Spam plus the options to Ban X.X.*.* or X.X.X.* depending on the number of Spam comments originating from the specific IP ranges, eg.

If more than X spam attempts originate from IP range 72.232.*.* then Ban 72.232.*.*, where X is user definable and default 10.

Right now I am manually copy pasting IPs from AKismet to WPBan, I guess I should also add them to the .htaccess
This could be another option for a next version, export Banned IPs to .htaccess.

Exact IP Ban… same thing, I guess you are right, must be trackback spam eh? Well, trackback will be switched off then!

So it happened again today:
Banned IP:
203.144.160.*

Today I found a spam in AKismet’s Queue from IP 203.144.160.246 which should be banned, right?

here’s the spam comment:

yes, the IPs were an exact match, I did not try the host name yet.

Thanks for the info! One more thing, I have 2 IPs on my ban list that still are able to leave spam comments (filtered by AKismet) after I added them to the Ban List, what could be the reason?

WP-Ban is cool, yes. What does it mean though when I get an “unknown” as IP in the Stats table?

Also is there a way to make AKismet and Wp-Ban work together? i.e. feed WP-Ban with IPs marked as spam from AKismet 8as described on my blog)?

Cheers!
