Possible to set Indefinite Lock-out and retry times? (3 posts)

    I want someone that gets locked out to have their IP locked out indefinitely until I log into the site and clear them manually.

    Is there a way to set this? Will 0 as the values for "minutes lockout" and "hours until retries are reset" work?

    Thank you!

    Kind of, but not really. :) It's an interesting idea though.

    0 lockout time will not work. You can use a very large value for a similar effect.

    The max values are probably 35791394 minutes and 596523 hours (68 years or so). I think. I can't check right now.

    Also note that you can only clear all lockouts, not one at a time. I'll probably fix this in a future release.

    Make sure you know what to do if you lock yourself out.
