If I change the blacklist using this plugin, will it change the Comment Blacklist?
No, this is completely separate.
Does this list the rejected posters?
If you set comments to be spammed or moderated, they will show up in the appropriate section of your comments page. If you set comments to be trashed they get added and goes right to trash.
What does this check?
Usernames, IP addresses, and email addresses.
Will this block partial emails?
Yes. If you put
example.com in your list, it will block
Be very careful when you do this! If you put in just the letter
a for example, you will block all email addresses with that letter. I strongly recommend you only use full domains (‘example.com’, not just ‘example’).
Will this block wildcards?
That’s optional. The logic is a little chancy and has a higher risk of catching innocents. However if you add
firstname.lastname@example.org and turn on Wildcard checking, then
email@example.com will be caught, but
firstname.lastname@example.org will not be caught. The downside to this is that
email@example.com will also be caught. Use at your own risk.
Will this block existing users?
This plugin will not block any logged in user, even if their email is on the list. If you don’t want them commenting, delete their accounts. It’s assumed if you let someone on your site, you mean for them to have access.
Does this work on MultiSite?
Yes, it does.
Does this work on Single Site installs?
No. But then again, you don’t need this on single installs.
What happens if a site on a network wants to block someone?
Per site blacklists override the network settings. This means if a site on the network marks a specific user to be blacklisted, even if the network option is set to spam, the comments will be blacklisted. On the other hand, if the network blacklists someone, that cannot be overruled.
Where can I help develop this?
Github – pull requests are welcome.
