Topic: Banned username able to post

Some found some spam that has just got past Akismet, but I'm not sure why. However the following appeared:
gusetname: buy levitra
with a usertitle:  Banned

I thought that banned username meant that they could not use them again?

The username definitely exists in the bans list, but with a different email address and IP.

Username bans only affect registration, not posting

ahhh. thanks.

I'll look at that and see if I can create a mod to check on guest posting then.

hmmm in register.php I can see where it checks against a banned email, but not a banned username.

You're right, my bad smile
It doesn't prevent registration, it prevents logging in with that name (check_bans function, so you'll login and then get the ban message)

Re: Banned username able to post

ok will do.

Should this perhaps be changed for 1.3? (or even could it be added?)
