Banning IPs doesn't change .htaccess although other functions do (3 posts)

    I pretty much summed it up in my topic title :)

    I allow the plugin to edit .htaccess and changing various settings results in that. However, when I ban an IP under "ban > Ban Hosts" and then save settings, it says "Settings Saved" up top, but there's no change to the .htaccess file, nor is anything listed in the "Ban Hosts" box. And yes, the "Enable Banned Users" box is checked.

    I could find no help topics to address this.

    Thank you in advance.
