Block IP Address from Submitting Requests - Spam
#1
Just a feature suggestion in the ever present fight against spam. It would be great if from within formtools (say from the submissions page) you could click on the ip address that submitted the form and block it from making any other submissions.

Just a thought.

Yeah, I could see this being handy.

However, you could create the same behavior using the Submission Pre-Parser module. That lets you examine the contents of all POST requests coming in - you could also examine $_SERVER and extract the IP and tell it not to log those submissions.

Let me know if you need any pointers on this.

All the best!
