  • banned user

    have had to ban a user, done that by way of name, email and ip addy

    but am i right is saying he can still view as a guest, he is logged out of the board,

    dont want to turn off guest viewing as that can attract new members, is there a way to stop this banned user even viewing the board

    thanks

    Perhaps ban the ip address at the root level?

        I think he means using something from the server to block it or block it in the .htaccess file. If you add the code below in your .htaccess file you will allow everyone but the person from 55.55.555.555 (which obviously is not a real IP, but you would just put the offending IP there.

        <Limit GET>
        order allow,deny
        allow from all
        deny from 55.55.555.555
        </Limit>
