What is this stuff?
Addons are custom features that you can add to your Vanilla forum. Addons are created by our community of developers and people like you!
Will it work on my Vanilla Forum?
These addons are for people who downloaded and set up their own Vanilla forum. Compare your downloaded version with the version requirements on the right.
If your Vanilla forum is hosted at VanillaForums.com, this addon may already be installed there.
We review addons to make sure they are safe and don't cause bugs. An addon is considered to be "Vanilla Approved" once our review process is complete.
Current release is 2.1.6
(21 Nov 2014).
Users who have not yet upgraded to 2.1 should get security release 18.104.22.168
(1 Nov 2014). We will stop providing these security releases to 2.0 at the end of this year.
Warning! This community-contributed addon has not been tested or code-reviewed. Use at your own risk.
This addon is a plugin. You need to extract it to your
/plugins folder to install it.
Add a list of IP addresses that you wish to block from having access to your forum.
The addresses are entered without the need to make changes to the .htaccess file.
Make sure that you edit your 'role' so that you have the 'Can block an IP Address' privilege, then 'IPBlocker' will appear in the 'Extension Options' menu.
Blocked users will be redirected to the 'sign-in' page with a message that their IP Address has been blocked.
- An improved 'Rejected' page with option for a user to request to be unblocked.
