[BUG] Refresh = Login Attempt (3 posts)

    I believe this is another issue regarding the Captcha Plugin, see this thread I made awhile back:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/log-out-lock-out-major-bug

    Whenever I logout it counts against me as a login-attempt. When I refresh the page it counts AGAIN as a login attempt. So if I view this page on my install:

    http://example.com/wp-login.php?loggedout=true

    It counts and if I refresh it counts. Just wanted to point this out and hope it gets resolved in a future update.

    Same here.

    In my case this plugin comes with the DirectAdmin hosting panel.
    My hostingprovider activated this plugin in all WP installs > but unfortunately this plugin doesn't count right.

    I would suggest whitelisting your IP address as the simplest solution.

    From the example code:

    function my_ip_whitelist($allow, $ip) {
      	return ($ip == 'my-ip') ? true : $allow;
     }
     add_filter('limit_login_whitelist_ip', 'my_ip_whitelist', 10, 2);

    or, as in my case, if you have an array:

    $ips = array("191.0.0.1", "192.0.0.2");
    function my_ip_whitelist($allow, $ip) {
     	return (in_array($ip, $ips) ? true : $allow;
    }
    add_filter('limit_login_whitelist_ip', 'my_ip_whitelist', 10, 2);
