Ignorebots not ignoring bots


#1

PhantomBot Version: 2.4.2
OS Version: Linux (Mageia 7)
Java Version: 1.8.0_191
Browser and Version (for Panel Support): Firefox 64.0.2
Stock PhantomBot: Yes

My ignorebots.txt file isn’t preventing bots from gaining points or loyalty. I rebuilt the file from scratch using vim to make sure the line endings were LF only (a previous version of the file was probably CR+LF, but I was having all sorts of problems reading the file, which is why I rebuilt it). Here’s the file itself: ignorebots.txt (356 Bytes)

(Full Disclosure: I have an easy workaround, so it’s not the end of the world if it’s just me, but if there’s any other way I can see what’s going on, let me know!)

UPDATE: Does the Cleanup System module need to be enabled? ('Cause it’s not right now…)


#2

make sure you reboot the bot or do !reloadbots after you edit that file?


#3

Rebooting didn’t work. Just tried it, and went live briefly. Blacklisted users are still getting points.


#4

This feature is only in the nightly build.


#5

Yep, that makes sense! Thanks!
