This plugin checks the IP addresses of site visitors against listings in the Project Honey Pot blacklist (http:bl). Currently, this is done only for logged-out visitors (+ bots/crawlers etc.) who visit the Login, Register or Lost Password pages. If a possible threatening IP is identified, it gets either blocked from accessing these pages or you can also redirect the access to a honeypot site that you have created.

For the plugin to work you need to register a (free) personal account at http://www.projecthoneypot.org and create your API key.


  1. If you have a previous version of the http:blacklist plugin installed, first remove the old http_blacklist plugin folder from your mod directory before copying/extracting the new version to your server,
  2. Copy the http_blacklist plugin folder into you mod folder,
  3. Enable the http:blacklist plugin in the admin section of your site,
  4. Enter at least your http:bl API key on the plugin's settings page.
