tell me how

Somebody please tell me how to install MT Blacklist. I had more than 300 spam comments from the time I quit writing last night to this morning.

Remember that I am a computer moron--- a complete nitwit and if there's any way I can fuck up the installation, I probably will. I require SIMPLE instructions or I'll just hand you the keys to my house and let YOU do it for me.

But I need some help.

You need to download the files first...I am assuming you are running 2.6 or later....if so...

Ok..once you have it downloaded. Extract the files via Winzip, or whatever program you have.

Here are the upload instructions Rob:

Ok..so once you have installed your files and chmod them to 755 (right click on the file and you should see the chmod option in your ftp program).

Just go to http://gutrumbles.com/mt2/mt-blacklist.cgi (requires YOUR UserID and PWD)

hopefully this screen will actually pop up...if it does...great!

Now click the list button..open the text file in a new browser window. Copy all the text to your clipboard. Close that browser window. Click the Add button...in the box provided....says "Import"....paste from clipboard and press submit.

You're done...

Here are some docs:

I strongly suggest you get MT-Close as well.

Or you could put in a support ticket with your host and ask them to do it for you. Even if they charged you a fee, wouldn't it be worth it not to fuck up your site?

this could get to be interesting.

I sent Rob an email about 3 hours ago....maybe I'm just on the net too much..

This simple mod took less than five minutes to implement....a democrat could do this....

I'm not a Democrat, Chris.
