This will block a lot of guests using a proxy that is true, but I'd rather lose one genuine registrant, than allow in a person who is going to disrupt the forum

alot of isps use this, its not a browser configuration

If you don't have it set to block complete access, then they can still email you if there are any issues. Then you can add them to the whitelist.

Exactly. Learned this the hard way, and if there are issues with genuine members then they can still email you if the block access option isn't selected.

How exactly are you defining "block access"?

Another update for you all. I am now finalizing the post to thread, it appeared that I could not port it from the 3.8 version I was using so I am researching more into that so I can release both 4.0 and 3.8 together.

I use the information provided by tor

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then the whitelist is just comparing IPs

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That's not true, there ae millions of isps that use transparent proxies. What makes you think they are trouble makers? if there is trouble deal with it after!

Also as everyone knows, blocking proxies blocks many users around the world that have to use them in order to view sites.

You must understand how proxies work before blocking a person ffrom doing no harm!

Any new updates for pro version if so can you email them

This (pro version) seems to be increasing load time for my forum.

Am I correct in assuming that it checks for proxies on every post or page load?

If so, can we have an option for checking on registration only?

Coming in the new version, still working out some kinks. Yes it does check on every page load, but that is why I am implementing use of SQL, so that it can log usernames and no longer run all the checks on users every time. Now that I think about it, I will add an option to only check registered users, and only registration. I'm going to have to recode a few things. Need to organize my code a bit better.

Do you mean product updates or like updates about the pro in general? I'm hoping to release soon, having a wee bit of issues with server loads as mentioned above. Working on recoding some things for optimization.

Another suggestion: Would like to be able to whitelist blocks of IP addresses, like the Google proxy used by Chromebooks and some Androids.

For example, 66.249.85.0/24 or 66.249.85.0/16

Using the Pro version on just one forum so far but if this can be made to work the way I need it I would be looking at buying 4 more licenses.

I can arrange this. I just didn't think it was too needed, but I ran into a circumstance a couple days ago where I wish I had this haha. I'll see about adding this into the next version.

Excellent. Thank you. :)

Hey Insane, do you have any plans blocking VPN with this plugin?

Actually this would be very useful. :up: We usually don't worry about our guests.

TheInsaneManiac 01 Dec 2013 04:01

Not at this time. There are too many VPNs out there, and the amount of resources it would use would be more hassle than it's worth. It could be possible in the future once I get database logging integrated, as I can reference back to avoid detecting the same members over and over again.

Awesome! I'll try to incorporate in next version.

1. Were these two features included in the latest update?

2. Are they included in the Pro version? Where do I get the latest Pro version?
