Conflict with Better WP Security (2 posts)

    The Better WP Security plugin has great security methods for blocking hackers and malware, and does it with minimal knowledge or work needed by you.

    As delivered, it conflicts with a URL that the Types plugin uses, specifically ending with a parameter with no value. This conflict gives a 403 Forbidden error, blocking the Types plugin administration pages (and probably others).

    Better WP Security has a line like this

    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^.*(\[|\]|\(|\)|<|>|ê|"|;|\?|\*|=$).* [NC,OR]

    I removed |=$, which blocks parameters ending with equals, like

    That comes from a link like
    or like

    Suggestion to plugin writers, specify &s=1 instead of &s (parameters should always have a value).
