Support » Plugin: NinjaFirewall (WP Edition) - Advanced Security » Cannot add or delete plugins while NF is active

  • Resolved hdbrick


    I’m working on a not-yet-live WordPress site. All plugins, the theme, and WP itself are up to date and it is not a multisite installation. When I activated NinjaFirewall for a test yesterday I lost the ability to add or delete plugins. Within the WordPress Dashboard I can mouseover the “plugins” link and it will not produce the usual pulldown menu that offers the chance to change settings or install a new plugin, and the deactivated plugins no longer have “delete” as an option. Turning the firewall off allows the options to return.

    I think NF looks like the right solution for the site so I hope I can keep using it while adding or deleting plugins while the site is live and protected. Which NF setting is stopping me from being able to install and delete plugins from the WP Dashboard?

    Thank you!

    Did you enable the “Firewall Policies > Basic Policies > Disable plugin and theme update/installation ‘DISALLOW_FILE_MODS'” policy? That would block adding, updating and deleting plugins.

    This is exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you Nintechnet!
