    IP Ban

    Asked by webstudioproductions on December 01, 2011 at 02:22 AM

    We are receiving pornographic posts from an IP address. We would like to ban this person from sending us any more posts. Captcha is on but this is not a spam bot this is just someone who thinks it funny to send us such content. Please update us with how to block this person. Thank you - Alex WebStudioProductions.com


    PS. We can not enable strict submissions because we want the same person to be able to send us there ideas as many of them as they have.

    Sorry but it is not possible. We've already added this feature to our NiceToDo List. I cannot provide a lead time when this feature will be implemented, or if this request will be approved. But once the request gets implemented, we will let you know.

    If you have any other concerns, feel free to contact us.

    Please do, we have not revived anything else from the IP address but just in case we would like to have the option of black listing the IP.


    Please let us know once this feature is available.

    in the meantime you can add this code to the .htaccess file in the host:


    <Limit GET POST>
    order allow,deny
    deny from IP-HERE
    allow from all


    and that guy would not be able to access your site

    Thank you Agent47 for your suggestion. We will pass it on to our server admin.


    We look forward to a built in solution from JotForm soon.

    I have added one more vote to the IP block feature request ticket in order to bring it up, and hope we will get this feature in the near future.

    As mentioned above, this thread will be updated once the feature will be implemented.

    Thank you for using our services!

    Unfortunately, there is no update yet on this feature. Our development team is working hard to work on more important fixes and features that are required to use the tool more efficiently. I see that there are few more requests on the same feature from other threads. Hopefully, this feature will also be implemented soon.

    Thank you!
