BulletProof Security
[resolved] BPS stops flash slider working (6 posts)

    I have installed BPS on a test site and I notice that when in BulletProof Mode it stops the front page slider from working. Simply disabling BP-mode starts the flash animation again. Firebug seems to point to nothing wrong.

    How can I resolve this please?

    An .htaccess skip / bypass rule just needs to be created for whatever slider plugin this is. What is the name of the slider plugin? Please post the plugin's name and I will test it and see what the issue is.

    Or you can take a look at these skip / bypass rules created for other plugins and create a new skip / bypass rule for this plugin based on the general skip / bypass rules logic.

    Well, thanks for you reply here. Unfortunately, it's not a plugin, but an XML flash module from FLASHDEN.

    Oh ok. Well if it falls under the external 3rd party app category there are some fixes on the link i posted above, but it does not sound like that is what you need.

    There are a couple of different ways to figure out what exactly is being blocked and by what.

    1. Comment out each BPS security filter one by one by adding a # pound sign in front of each one (then test, then comment out, then test, etc) until you find the security filter that is blocking the XML Flash Module.

    2. Find the query string or specific file that is being blocked. You would put BPS in Default Mode and take note of the query string or file that is loading in your Browser's address bar. Then put BPS in BulletProof Mode and see what does not happen. by comparing the 2 scenarios you can dial in on what exactly is being blocked.

    Thanks, some good pointers there. I'll try those and see if it fixes the problem.
