Blacklist not working
« on: November 26, 2004, 08:47:28 PM »
Hi,

I just installed the latest blacklist - first time I've installed it, running wp 1.2 - and it doesn't seem to be complete working. It's tagged one or two messages for moderation, but about 40 from the same address have made it through. Poked around on some of the other messages in this forum. I'm not running any other moderation plug-ins or anything. Any ideas?

Thanks!

The answer to your question lies in finding out what criteria (or blacklist item) was used to tag the ones which did get identified as spam. When you say "about 40 from the same address got through",  which address do you mean? Did the spammer have the same e-mail address in all? If so, is that e-mail address part of your blacklist? Or if you meant the same URL, then is that URL part of your blacklist? A link to your site with some of the spam comments still intact might help as well :)
