Problem with banning

Post by thefeedski »

Recently I have gotten a ton of spammers sign up on my forum, so I changed the captcha and that seemed to work out. But there is one member, named "Trialfrarce" who keeps fucking posting. I don't know how. I have IP banned him literally 5 times. He isn't creating a new account, he is using the same one every time. Anyone know why he is still able to log in and post?

I IP banned. He isn't making new accounts each time though (I don't think), it seems like he is using the same one.

It`s a problem with the phpBB .
Make an account and ban it on username ,and see that you can acces it then

IP ban literally only bans the IP. You want to ban the username.
