Password Attempt Plugin? (4 posts)

    I did a search and couldn't find anything.

    Is there a plugin similar to the search stats plugin that would display any attempt at trying to enter my password protected posts?

    Like if I have a protected post and someone who doesn't have a password tries to get in, is there any way to see that?

    I have some people viewing my blog who I'd rather didn't and I would love to know it they're attempting to view my protected posts. Also, it would be nice to know if people are guessing anything close to the real password.

    1. You posted about this in another thread.
    2. WP is a publishing tool - some people seem to forget this basic thing. We use WP because we want to publish our blog.
    3. If you want things to keep in secret: don't put them on the net. Keep them in your drawer or bank safebox.

    1. I didn't post this in another thread. I posted a different question about what is the best method for protecting posts (not if there is a plugin to see if people are trying to crack the password.)
    2. I understand it is a publishing tool - I haven't forgotten this. I do publish my blog.
    3. I obvioulsy am not the only person who wants to protect certain things. If I was, there wouldn't be a password protect option. I have my reasons for wanting to post some things on the web, but keep them away from certain people.

    Is this a support forum or is this a place for people to completely bash those of us with questions?

    I added the 'modlook' tag because your response would fall under this rule...

    "Posts which are destructive in nature. To put it basically, if you cannot say anything positive or helpful, or provide pointers that can assist the original poster, and do so in a constructive manner - then do not post."

    Responses like that make people like me with genuine questions feel very uncomfortable seeking help.

    No, there isnt.

    Learn to read your Apache logs. That wont give you all of that info, but it will provide some.
