[resolved] [Plugin: Better WP Security] Ignoring certain changed files and directories (2 posts)

    This plugin is my favorite. It works great, I use all its functionalities and I am very impressed. :)

    The only thing the plugin seems to ignore is the list of files and directories in the Intrusion Detection section. I have set it to Exclude and in the box I added the line statistics/. When this still emailed me the list of changed files in that directory I tried to add filenames, e.g. statistics/index.php. Still receiving emails though.

    The text underneath the box reads:

    Directories should be entered in the from the root [sic] of the WordPress folder. For example, if you wish to enter the uploads directory you would enter it as "wp-content/uploads" (assuming you have not renamed wp-content). For files just enter the filename without directory information.

    It doesn't make sense if I put index.php in there, because I only want to exclude index.php in the statistics directory.

    I can live with the daily email but perhaps this is something in the plugin that could deserve a bit more attention. Especially support for regular expressions would totally make my day...

    But yeah all in all it's a great plugin and I use it with pleasure.

  2. Not a bad idea. I'll look at adding regex support in future versions as well as a more intuitive list in general.
