    is there any possibility we can change one second to two?

    also, is there any thought to adding a longer delay for each login failure? like maybe double the timeout for each login failure?

    Hi Edward,

    There is no setting to change the delay for now, but I will add it soon, it was already on my todo list :)

    Concerning your second idea, I like it! I will add it to the todo list too!

    hey michael - i see you have a way to control the length of time on the timeout with version 1.1 -- but i had hoped my idea of doubling the time involved would also be an option.

    assuming you use this idea, maybe when you mouse over the "time-double?" question under settings, my picture can pop up as a living tribute to me. ;-)

    Hi Edward,

    Yes I know, but I am way too busy to work on the extension for now. I will definitely use your idea and add your picture on the settings page ;)

    hello michael - i have your wonderful plug-in installed in a WP multi-user (mu) environment.

    in order to go through and change all existing WP sites from one second to two seconds (for example) it looks as if the best way would be to get all the wp_###_options tables, and maybe with an editor (or php) use something like this as a template:

    UPDATE wp_###_options
    SET option_value = 'a:1:{s:13:"wldelay_delay";i:2;}'
    WHERE 1
    AND option_name = 'wldelay_options'
    AND option_value = 'a:1:{s:13:"wldelay_delay";i:1;}'
    ;

    or there is probably something i could have easily done in the source code beforehand, maybe change a global default somewhere to whatever i want.

    do you have any opinion on this, or a better idea for me?

    THANK YOU for your hard work and your efforts to keep WP safe. the attacks seem to be getting relentless.
