Thank you for all your hard work - you've saved me from pulling out what little hair I have left...
A suggestion - on the Log page, it lists the IP addresses that are detected / blocked. When one of my users noted that he was getting blocked (School connection, there must have been a bot in his school that flagged the whole network), I had to dig to figure out which IP was his. I would like to suggest adding a column to the log of users associated with a given IP address, so that a quick visual scan will tell an Admin who may be blacklisted, that can later be excepted.
I know you're working on the exception part now, which is very nice. Hopefully, including a list of users on the "short" log will make this even more useful.
Both myself and my forum users thank you!
You are welcome. I understand very well your feelings. I started doing all this work for myself, as I'm fed-up with the spammers in my forums and I realized with mod Stop Spammer (which of course I have also installed in all of them) on its own was not enough and I was pulling out my hair as well.
Then, once the first version was ready, I decided to share it with everybody because I have always thought the more brains trying to sort a problem together the faster you find the solution.
Please notice, by default, the Log page is sorted by Date (newest ones first), but you can sort it by any column you want just clicking on the name of that column.
Clicking again the same column will change the order ("from smallest to highest" => "from highest to smallest")
So, if you want to find for example any given IP, just click on the "IP" column and you will see the entries for that particular IP all together.
Also, all the IPs are links to the "Track IP" page, so clicking on the actual IP number will show you which user has it, errors from that IP, etc.
Anyway I'm changing a little the Log page in the new version, adding a few more columns etc. I hope you will like it when it's finished.
