[resolved] How does BP work on non-standard login forms? (2 posts)

    I use a custom login form on a page.

    The form is a basic login form, but uses a bit of custom PHP and Ajax for the login (along with a NONCE).

    It never redirects to the standard WP login page.

    I have no idea what happens if a baddy keeps entering information in this form, can you shed a bit of light?

    Thanks

    Guy

    For non-standard login pages:

    • BP does protect you. The BP login check is run before any POST'ed login information is parsed
    • BP does NOT prevent the login page from being shown. They don't get the error until after they submit their login
    • In the event of a BruteProtect API outage, no logins are allowed (our math CAPTCHA doesn't display). This is an issue that is pretty high up on our priority list
