Excellent plugin, marked as installed, rated excellent, nominated plugin of the month and bought the pro version. Keep up the good work!

Seems to be blocking Google AdSense Spider we need a option to add a host or ip or both to the allowed list

Seems like a very useful mod but from what i have read here i will wait until it's 100% working and then buy the pro version.
Thanks anyway.

I was interested in buying the Pro version, but when I went to the site it didn't mention if it was compatible with 4.2.1. Does anyone know if it is?

This is a break hack, would like to support the coder for his/her efforts.

OK thanks. Just for the record I've used other hacks that said 4.x and weren't 4.2.1 compliant because they weren't fully updated. Just was looking for some clarification that's all :up:

Does anyone know if this hack would help any for those using "Airplane Mode" from a smartphone? That's what they use to create new profiles despite being IP banned.

Just a quick update you all, one of the raid drives died on my server, so it's been down the last couple days, so I haven't had time to work on/test any of the new features. I am working on some new ones now, that I believe you all will enjoy. :)

Everything works, it's just a matter of adding more features, which I am constantly doing. Once the product is where I want to be, (which won't be for awhile, I feel like I am never fully finished with this product) the pricing of the pro won't remain the same, just a heads up.

Airplane mode does not allow you to have access to the internet. I am confused by this question.

If you turn the mode on and then off you will have internet access, only with a new IP. So you block someone, they switch the mode on/off, and then they log back into your site. I read about a book on ebay that teaches hackers how to avoid proxy mods like this one. It specifically goes over topics like "IP Address Q&A Proxies, AOL, VPN, Broadband IP Tracking". I won't post a link here to it, but I can send you a PM with the link if you need to learn more. From what I understand, using airplane mode is usually one of the tricks to get around a hack like this. I was hoping that this hack was smarter than the author of that book :)

BTW, I went pro today :up: Great work!

I tried this and my ip remains the same. Is this only for certain carriers?

Thanks for the feedback, all is appreciated. :)

Usually it's the case that when you disconnect your mobile device and reconnect, you may get a new IP. It's not really so much a feature of turning on and off airplane mode as it is turning off and on your smartphone, but airplane mode works the same I guess. I would assume the longer you have it on airplane mode, the more likely you will get a new IP once it is turned on.

In any case, I have a new feature request, if possible: blocking entire country IP ranges, and a white-list for that, since I intend to ban various MENA countries from accessing my forum, and white-list the MENA-members I already have on my forum. I can do this via htaccess but it's a pain in the ass, it would be easier to just do it via a plugin.

To be honest I just heard about it yesterday. I haven't tested it on my phone yet but other people I talked to say it works. What upsets me is that phone manufactures should be smart enough to make airplane mode work ONLY when you're actually in a airplane. Wouldn't be hard for them to do. Then this wouldn't be a real option for hackers.

I'll try to do some more research for you and post back later :)

I wouldn't say they are hackers, merely script kiddies. I mean if they are just having their phone do all the work then that's not really hacking, but regardless, would become annoying.

I agree. Phones's doing all the work - good point.

I just tested with my HTS One and it displayed the same IP. Turned Airplane Mode on/off - same IP. Turned phone on/off - same IP. These other people who have told me about this swear that it works, so I'll have to find out what carrier and/or browser they are using because right now I can't duplicate it.
