mod_evasive + IE problem

SkyHi @ Monday, November 09, 2009

When server has mod_evasive installed and Xihna is used in Internet Explorer, then user IP is blocked by server and user can't use editor. This is caused by buggy IE loading images in javascript (it loads images at each request). mod_evasive protect from loading one url more often than 2-5 times on 2 second interval (depends on config). After counter is more than 2-5, user ip is blocked.

Solution: Slice images/ed_buttons_main.gif to be a one gif per button (and maybe other, but I found only this one).

Used version of editor:
