    Perhaps this is a bug report, I have tested this and know 100% Better WP Security
    is the problem.

    When this plugin is active, all my 301 redirects in my htaccess file stop working.

    when testing I discovered that the active plugin is the problem, when I disabled the plugin the 301s work...

    An interesting thing I discovered is that the blacklist and admin address re-write code within the htaccess does not cause a conflict (I kept this code with the plugin off). The problem is with the plugin being active.

    I have experienced the same issues, but disabling and even deleting the plugin didn't solve the problem. I had to make a new .htaccess to get my redirects to work again. Took me a while to figure out what was causing the problem...maybe better wp security is too Advanced for me or maybe it's a crappy plugin that has other people locked out of their own wp-admin area
