SMF: Ban List > tick Ban on IP > enter an IP > enter a Ban name > save (add).Expiration 'never' & 'full ban'. Check the ban log periodically, with no hits after a period > 'Expired / disabled' or delete the ban.Banning in smf has one small advantage, one can monitor (hits, ban log) connection attempts.But... anyone can easily use a new ip and be back 1 minute after seeing some ban or a 403 forbidden (htaccess).The effective way to stop anyone form copying content is to delete the whole website\forum, or put a "deny from all" in htaccess :O)
