Excellent but…

Excellent work. the only problem is that when I activate this function, even my self is blocked to access the web and the page editor. So, I using this to block access while I am updating files with ftp. But I would prefer to have access to the pages, in order to be able to edit those while the website is banned. I tried different configurations without success.
