Bad Behavior 1.1.2, the latest version of the Web’s only portable link spam killer, has been released.
Fixed in this release:
- Due to recent changes made by Microsoft, MSNBot was being blocked about 70% of the time. This has been fixed.
Changed in this release:
- A very surprisingly large number of people wanted to have individual
bad_behavior_logtables for each installation of WordPress, MediaWiki, Geeklog, etc., rather than a combined table. This is now supported and Bad Behavior will create a table using the table prefix provided by each individual software. This means, for instance, instead of a
bad_behavior_logtable, you will have a
wp_bad_behavior_logtable on WordPress, or a
mw1_bad_behavior_logtable on MediaWiki. The table prefix, of course, will vary depending on the settings of the software on which Bad Behavior is installed. The old combined
bad_behavior_logtable will be left in place; you will need to rename or remove it yourself if you desire.
I’m also moving closer to having the Geeklog port stabilized and included in the mainline Bad Behavior release. Currently it is built and distributed separately.
Thanks again to everyone who has written me, and written on their own sites, about their successes with Bad Behavior. It’s that time again, so Download Bad Behavior now!
