WP-Deadbolt 3.0 is an updated version of my older WP-Deadbolt, a plugin designed for WordPress that allows blog owners to have more control over the e-mail addresses that are used during the registration process.
WP-Deadbolt 3.0 is completely configurable via the WordPress administration area. Just navigate to Options -> WP-Deadbolt and you can add or remove domains, toggle between white/blacklisting and personalize the message that is shown when someone is denied registration.
- Upload wp-deadbolt.php and deadbolt_options.php to your WordPress plugins directory.
- Activate WP-Deadbolt (via the Plugin Management page)
- Navigate to Options –> WP-Deadbolt to make changes and add domains.
WP-Deadbolt 3.0 requires WordPress 2.1.0 or above. It is not compatible with WordPress 2.0.x
