The central Bluetrait server can also display the current version of WordPress installed on any connected site.

More features will come in future.

WordPress 2.3.0 or higher is recommended.

FAQ

What does LOCKDOWN mode do?

The LOCKDOWN mode is designed to make it more difficult to disable BTC.
It might be required for extra security or if you don’t want users with Administrator permissions to be able to disable the plugin. In LOCKDOWN mode the follow options are disabled:

  1. Unregister Server
  2. Update Settings
  3. Uninstall
  4. Deactivate

This can make it more affective in synchronising changes that occur in your site.

How do I enable LOCKDOWN mode?

open btc.php and find the line (near the top) that says:

    define('BTC_LOCKDOWN', FALSE); 

and change it to:

    define('BTC_LOCKDOWN', TRUE); 

Remember to upload the file if you edited it locally.

What limitations does LOCKDOWN mode have?

  1. Please be aware that LOCKDOWN mode is NOT a guarantee that BTC will say active if you site is hacked.
  2. An extra layer of security is added but there are many other ways to disabled BTC.
  3. It is recommended that btc.php is NOT writable so that the file cannot be editted from within WordPress.
  4. Please be aware that LOCKDOWN mode is NOT a guarantee that BTC will say active if you site is hacked.

BTC has a bug and/or I want to suggest some new features. How?
