    Hi, This is amazing to see and super simple to use a great addition to the Siteground platform and makes me even happier to use you to host my 800+ client sites.

    I currently use the pro version of Ithemes and would fully switch to your solution if you could potentially accommodate a few of the features they have.

    1) Change login page URL functionality. This is a great way to remove /wp-login etc and replace it with something like /clientaccess. In my experience, this blocks potential hackers etc before they even get close to the login page.

    2) ReCaptcha is a great addition to strengthen the login page from bots. With Googles V3 implementation this is pretty much hidden unless flagged as a threat.

    I really appreciate your time developing this and hope you take my two ideas into consideration.

    Hey Giles,

    Thanks for the kind words πŸ™‚ Bear in mind that this is version 1.0 πŸ™‚ We will be adding tons of new functionalities to the plugin. Actually, the custom login URL is already in the works and we will soon release it. As to the ReCaptcha I am not a big fen because it’s quite heavy JS to be loaded and not that easy to implement. 2FA protects far better than it your login forms. We will consider adding a captcha for all users that don’t have editorial rights but give me some time to contemplate on the best way to approach it without harming site speed πŸ™‚

    Hi Hristo,

    This is great news and pleased to hear that you are already on the case.

    Upon thinking about it the Captcha is heavy and would slow things down. IThemes is very heavy and installing it you notice the website slowing down. It would be great to keep this as lightweight as possible.

    Are logs auto-deleted after a set period? One of my client’s sites has about 40+ editors that publish almost hourly. If all activity is recorded this log could get pretty big/out of control quickly.

    Cheers, Giles

    Hi, I was just doing some translations for English UK and spotted a few typos/grammatical errors in the plugins wording.

    See errors in bold.

    Two-factor Authentication for Admin & Editors Users

    Cloud not find the IP.

    This will restrict your account to a Subscriber role and will lock you out of (add missing “the”) Admin Menu

    Hope this helps πŸ™‚

    Yeah, I think 2FA is mucho better than ReCaptcha.

    About the logs, I would like to know too. Are logs auto-deleted after a set period? If all activity is recorded this log could get huge in a matter of months.

    Hey @gilesholder

    We will fix the typos in the next version.

    @boluda The logs are auto-deleted if an entry is older than 16 days.

    Tomowwor we will release a new version where you can set the logs expiration time.


    Β‘Great news! πŸ˜€
