Support » Plugin: WP fail2ban » Free version is buggy and useless

  • It’s impossible to even evaluate the usefulness of this plugin because it’s got lots of bugs. Upon installation the plugin provides links to documentation that results in 404 page not found. Then the documentation that is available doesn’t seem to work properly. If you put the constants necessary to enable logging in the wp-config, it throws undefined variable warnings. The whole thing is a mess, and it constantly nags you to pay them money. The administrative interface doesn’t work – it’s just a decoration to show you what MIGHT work if you pay them money. This is NOT how you do Shareware or encourage people to use your products.

    I’ll be looking for an alternative that actually works and isn’t obnoxious. The really sad part is, this is a pay plugin that relies on a free, open source system, Fail2Ban. If I was going to pay anybody, it will be the creators of fail2ban, not this crappy, non-working plugin.
