IP Banning

I've had some spam comments (links to porn sites) and have banned the IP address in question. Thought I'd mention how to do this:

1. If you're emailed the comment, the IP address is in the email. Otherwise from your blog maintenance screen, click on the link to the comment and find the IP address for the evil spammer.

2. Open Weblog Config (click the button in the lefthand toolbar).

3. Click IP Banning.

4. Enter the IP address you want to ban and click Add.

That's all. :-)
