    Hi all,

    has anyone had any experience of using bullet proof within a woo themes word press install ?

    My site was working fine and bps was doing good, then after installing a woo theme the bps plugin displayed a banner saying PS Alert!

    Your site does not appear to be protected by BulletProof Security,

    this was still the case after several attempts,
    the plugin activated , i got all the green flags etc etc , all the activation process completed successfully.

    then a few clicks later i would get the same message back

    PS Alert! Your site does not appear to be protected by BulletProof Security

    No one has ever mentioned any conflicts with Woo themes and typically BPS does not conflict with Themes in general, but anything is possible. The Theme could be using a built-in plugin that might be changing or removing the .htaccess coding in your root .htaccess file.

    This sounds a lot like the broken cPanel HotLink Protection Tool problem. Does your Host use cPanel?

    Check the .htaccess file to see what has changed in your root .htaccess file when you see the BPS Alert!

    the broken cPanel HotLink Protection Tool has been broken since at least 2002 (10+ years). Please see this thread post for more info >>> http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-bulletproof-security-broken-cpanel-hotlink-tool-404-errors-unable-to-edit-htaccess-files?replies=4

    One thing i left out in that post (will add this additional info to that sticky post) is that you should delete all the code that you see in the HotLink Protection Tool windows. The enable/disable buttons are also broken so no point in clicking those buttons. Then once you have deleted the code you would lock your root .htaccess file. Keep in mind that later if you unlock your root .htaccess file the broken HotLink Protection Tool problem will reoccur. It is permanently set to On/enabled setting and cannot be turned off/disabled.

    was the problem caused by the broken cPanel HotLink Protection tool? Is the problem still occurring?
