WordPress is a popular PHP content management system used by many sites.

This fact makes WordPress sites targeted by people with bad intentions.

Some of those people crawl sites to find vulnerabilities. Others want to copy the contents to other sites without their permission.

One way to avoid this kind of abuse is to block crawler bots.

This package implements a WordPress plugin that helps block the access of abusive crawlers.

It also provides administration pages to allow WordPress site administrators to configure several aspects of the features to block bot accesses.
