How to Blacklist the trolls?

Having read this entry, I decided I should put this up for those who might want help in doing the same.

Here is how.

1. Click on the Settings link (upper right corner of page, next to Users link)
2. Click on Discussion link at top of page

3. Scroll down to Comment Blacklist box, paste the IPs in it. You could also type in words (words in its content, name, URL, e-mail, or IP.Β  It will match inside words, so “press” will match “WordPress”.) you find offensive too

4. Don’t forget to hit button on the page. πŸ™‚

Let us all do away with trolls πŸ™‚


To add the image to your side bar:

1. Click on Design link on the settings page.
2. Click on the Widgets link.
3. Add text from the list of available widgets.
4. Then click on the edit link provided in the text widget that is added to your sidebar
5. Copy paste the following to
<span><img src=”; align=”center”><br/></span>
6. Click on the save changes button.

  1. Hey Thanks for the tip. I just read Nikhil’s post and have enable moderation for new commentators and added those IP addresses. Boy! Those idiots need to get some life.

    The cheap thrills they get probably! They can get that elsewhere :). Moderation was always on in mine. Just added the IPs

  2. Hey, good post! Informative! Kill the trolls! Hunt them down! πŸ˜€
    (Er.. I think I’m sounding too much like an extremist)

    Whoa!! Calm down πŸ™‚ They will go away πŸ™‚ leaving you in peace with Hairy Potter(other products of your imagination) and your dear Jodha of course πŸ˜‰ and us readers waiting to for your next entry.

  3. The code u have given is slightly wrong as the file links to Nikhil’s blog. its better to open a new write post, upload the image and copy paste the link generated instead of using mirrorcracked file.

    Nice post though.

    Thanks Reema! Yeah…It is better that ways..I was lazy and took the easy way out on this one. Did it the way you mentioned for the candle πŸ™‚ Besides, since Nikhil started the movement, he better have the image up and not delete it πŸ˜‰

  4. There is actually another solution. Send your trolls and losers to us at
    Either they come to us and fit in and forget about you guys….which is a win to you
    OR they don’t fit in and get ridiculed and focus their hate and disruption on us….which is a win to you.
    You do not lose anything and we gain another member.
    Some people don’t fit into normal forums and we tend to operate well with the motley crew of losers there and are proud of that.

    Up to you and just a suggestion.

    Welcome here Marty! Sounds like a good idea! Thanks! Will ban them and send them across πŸ™‚
