[L] is implied with [F] (4 posts)

    I've noticed these rules can be used to harden WordPress:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress#Securing_wp-includes

    The [L] flag is implied with [F] and is not needed.

    http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/rewrite/flags.html#flag_f

    That link is per Apache 2.2, but I'm pretty sure it applies to older version as well, like Apache 1.3x as I previously used them.

    It's not much of a wasted processing cycle, but it does reflect on someones knowledge and usage of Rewrite Flags. It could also be a waste if someone assumes that it's always required and decides to implement it with all their rules, which I see all over the net, including here.

    Fancy editing that Codex page yourself? Rewriting generally is fairly complex and not everyone has the necessary expertise to suggest a best practice (I know I don't). Your input would be appreciated.

    I'll try to help, there's a lot of ideas that I believe would be beneficial to hardening WordPress on a per individual basis. I don't mean to be lazy, but I've got a lot of work on my hands right now, and I'm usually only here when I can multi-task. Can you provide any links to get me started on providing suggestions. For example, do I need to submit a trac ticket for that suggestion? If so where?

    Thanks,

    For Codex documentation? No - it tends to be a pretty much "dive in" affair a lot of the time but I do agree that, with this particular topic, it would be a good idea to dot all of the i's and cross the t's before updating the relevant Codex page.

    I think your best bet would be to join the documentation mailing list and submit your ideas there first.
