Mute Screamer
[resolved] Help on proper settings to avoid getting kicked out of my site (3 posts)

    Hello,
    Working with Mute Screamer ver. 1.0.5. I believe I left the default settings in place, but the plugin keeps kicking me off my dashboard any time I attempt to work on my site, edit theme options, etc. I then go to the database, find the intrusion log, copy the code that should go into the exception field, delete my intrusion from the database, wait to be allowed to log back on to my site, add the exception code. This cycle then starts over again any time I attempt to edit a new area of my theme. It's really frustrating.

    Is there a way to whitelist my IP address? Or allow my theme edits? (it's a new theme, I don't know what sort of exception codes to put in until I've already been kicked out.) Or can you let me know what settings I need to change to be able to work on my site? Is there info or a tutorial anywhere on what the different plugin configuration settings do?

    Thank you for your help.

    By editing the theme I assume you mean editing the theme files from within the WordPress admin (/wp-admin/theme-editor.php).

    Currently there is no way to whitelist by IP address. What you can do is disable the IDS in WordPress admin. On Mute Screamer's settings page uncheck the box "Enable Mute Screamer for the WordPress admin". You could leave it off if you don't need Mute Screamer running in the admin, or you can just have it disabled while you are making edits and then reenable it after your done.

    Thanks for your response. I'm editing "theme options" under the "appearance" menu in wp-admin (my theme offers a lot of customization from the dashboard.) I unchecked the box, thanks for the tip.
