What features does the plugin offer?

The default comment blacklist feature will match inside words, so “press” will match “WordPress.” The Advanced Blacklist doesn’t match inside words. This plugin will:

  • Block any post which contains a certain term in the post contents or user information.
  • Block any post which contains an exact word in the post contents or user information.
  • Block any post which is made by a user with a certain username, IP address, or e-mail address.
