Block ip address?

  1. Hello,

    Is it possible to block specific ip addresses for form submission? I'm getting multiple nonsense submissions from the same set of ip addresses in Belarus and Netherlands.

    ReCaptcha is on but not stopping the annoying human(s) and I'm trying to figure out my options for stopping this, sometimes multiple times in an hour.

    Thanks!

  2. There's no built in way to do that. It's really out of the scope of the plugin.

    You could, however, ban these IP addresses with some quick additions to your site's .htaccess file.
