  1. Mute screamer 1.0 is incompatible with the “WP -> Twitter” plugin. When there is an intrusion the User agent string is tweeted out.

  2. Very good plugin.. I was planning to built a similar one, but abandoned the idea when I saw yours.. Thanks a lot..

  3. Hi, I have a problem,
    I tried installing the plugin but it returned the following error.

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 41943040 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 122880 bytes) in /home/abc/public_html/wp-admin/includes/menu.php on line 176

    what could be the reason?

  4. That sounds like PHP is running out of memory when downloading and installing the plugin. You can try increasing the memory limit for PHP, or you can upload the files via FTP to your server to get around the problem.
