Banhammer enables you to monitor traffic and ban any user or bot. To view your site’s traffic, visit the Armory. There you can ban or warn (flag) anything you wish. Once you have banned something, it will be locked in the Tower, where you can manage all banned users and bots. Here is an overview of how to use the plugin:
- Configure the plugin settings as desired
- Visit the Armory to monitor traffic and ban or warn any user or bot
- Visit the Tower to manage banned items
Two important points to understand:
- The Armory is a temporary snapshot of current traffic
- The Tower is a permanent record of all banned items
Note that further information is available in the Armory and Tower Help tabs.
