    Hi!
    I’ve been using this plugin for a while, and recently I started getting emails about IPs being blocked due to failed login.

    This has happened before, with user names that don’t exist.
    Now all failed logins are for administrator users that do exist in my site.
    I currently have 4 admin users, and I found that using this method

    http://www.example.com/?author=ID

    the title of the page displays the nickname chosen, but the url shows the real login name.

    I did a quick search, and I think it has something to do with the user_nicename being displayed by default in the url.
    Is there a way to change this?

    Thank you!!

  • Needless to say, we’re not alone in these concerns.

    Here’s a related article posted today, covering WordPress and WooCommerce topics “Post-launch security steps to take in WooCommerce“.

    Great article, IRD-dev. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Hi all,
    I think you make some valid points.
    I will put this on the TODO list as a feature which will be added in the coming release.

    Please be encouraged to head over to this post and chime in.

    My post recently received some sensible feedback from one Scott Allen.
