404 Detection - Ban protection (5 posts)

    Could you please add a way to protect specific users or user types from receiving a ban for 404 Detection? This might sound counterintuitive but I don't want my admin account accidentally getting locked out.

    You can already do this by whitelisting your IP address instead of your specific username.

    Go to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ to obtain your IP address and enter it in the Lockout White List area under Global Settings.

    Well the reason why I request whitelisting by username is because I do not have a static IP.

    As would I assume many users do not... any chance on this being considered?

    I'm afraid whitelisting a username is not under consideration as it would directly contradict the existing feature set.
