During testing I got blacklisted byself even though I had put my IP range on the white list.

The blacklisting was triggered by using one of the blacklisted URLs.


I had updated the Plugin

And the WHITELIST was ignored. You could see that the "score" on the plugin page was shown. It is supposed to show N/A.

I also got caught by simply editing and saving a lot (testing for mod_perl bug).

After I opened the BlackListPlugin topic, replaceing the IP range 192.168.1. by 192.168.1. (yes the same) and saving it suddenly started working.

Note that the pugin also caugt me when not running mod_perl.

Can the plugin have a initialization problem?

I also tried to save a topic with a bad URL. Then is still catches me but it allows me to continue. BUT I am added to the list of bad guys even if I am on the WHITELIST. So there is a bug. But less urgent. So I downgraded to "normal".


Problem resolved. It is trailing white space that causes the problem. Fixed and will be in next released BlackListPlugin. Fix will be bundled with other fixes in a checkin soon
