    Why would Editors need to access BPS? Once BPS is setup by an Administrator then why would an Editor need to be able to change the .htaccess code or do something else in BPS?

    It is of course possible to manually change the code to allow lower Roles, but throughout the BPS code the allowed Role is set to Administrators so this would require a significant amount of code changes.

    Thats fine. I was just curious. I do have a question about the BPS and WooCommerce plugin. I have an ecommerce website that uses WooCommerce to process payments, everytime I make changes to the WooCommerce settings page, I get a BPS alert saying the following. And this affects my htaccess file. So I always have to restore my htaccess file via BPS. Is there something that can be done to prevent the WooCommerce settings changes to trigger this alert? Is WooCommerce plugin not compatible with BPS sec.?

    ALERT MESSAGE BELOW
    ===================

    BPS Alert! Your site does not appear to be protected by BulletProof Security
    If you are upgrading BPS – BPS will now automatically update your htaccess files and add any new security filters automatically.
    Refresh your Browser to clear this Alert
    Any custom htaccess code or modifications that you have made will not be altered/changed. Activating BulletProof Modes again after upgrading BPS is no longer necessary.
    In order for BPS to automatically update htaccess files you will need to stay current with BPS plugin updates and install the latest BPS plugin updates when they are available.
    If refreshing your Browser does not clear this alert then you will need to create new Master htaccess files with the AutoMagic buttons and Activate All BulletProof Modes.
    If your site is in Maintenance Mode your site is protected by BPS and this Alert will remain to remind you to put your site back in BulletProof Mode again.
    If your site is in Default Mode then it is not protected by BulletProof Security. Check the BPS Security Status page to view your BPS Security Status information

    The WooCommerce plugin uses the WordPress flush_rewrite_rules() function. When you make changes to the WooCommerce plugin settings page this function is run. If you lock your root .htaccess file then this issue/problem will not continue to happen repeatedly. If you are not able to lock your root .htaccess file then unfortunately you will have to activate Root folder BulletProof Mode each time you change WooCommerce settings.

    Ok, thanks
