Ever wanted to prevent some people, hates, bots or spammers from accessing your website? Now you can in two simple steps:

  1. Install this plugin from the back end of your October installation.
  2. Using one simple window where you can manage all the banned IPs , you can click the "+ New IP" button top block a new IP.

Also we provide a simple page where you can set a custom layout file for the banned users to see as well as a content section for this layout.

You can see this video for a step-by-step tutorial on how to use this plugin: www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRHsjeHpmCY. Other than this, there is no additional set-up required in order for this plugin to work.

If you want to choose a custom layout for the banned users to see, you can do this from the settings page. Attention: in the dropdown from the settings page you will see only the layouts from the current active theme.

    Can't seem to upgrade to 1.0.4. Update process finishes without displaying any errors, however version still remains 1.0.3 and always shows that there is an update available. Nonetheless plugin itself works fine.
