DNSBL for WordPress 2.0.8 changelog

This release of the DNSBL for WordPress is a half-minor update. In a few days back in time a raised act against our contact forms has been observed. ContactForm7 is used on most of the tornevall.net-sites, so it has become frustrating when spam passes through the forms without the ability to instantly blacklist the posts (except for moments when akismet for example helps with the job). So I’ve just added support for WPCF7 into the plugin.

By means, if anything bad arrives via the mail, that has been posted via the contact form there’s just a few seconds between me and a complete blacklist of the sender. In this particular case I’m activating flag 16 (IP_MAILSERVER_SPAM) in the detection configuration and for v2.0.8 a new setting under “Protective options”, called “Turn on support for WPCF7”.

The issue tracker has this case added at https://tracker.tornevall.net/browse/DNSBLWP-63 and has been tested with WPCF7 5.1.4 this far.
