    Hello,

    I’m testing out your plugin and think I’ve come across a small bug.

    I deliberately locked my test account out by several failed login attempts.

    Then, I go to your plugin dashboard under the Failed Login Records tab to see the IP address appear in the list of locked out users.

    There are two options: unlock or delete.

    When I click unlock, the page refreshes and the record is deleted. I assume the record shouldn’t be deleted but should be in an unlocked status.

    I’ve tested this twice with the same result.

    Sorry, correction to my original post: I meant the “Locked IP Addresses” tab (not the Failed Login Records tab)

    Hi,

    Difference Between Unlock and Delete

    “Unlock” = Unlock will release the locked status and hence allow that IP address to access the site again. (However the row containing that IP address will still remain in the login_lockdown table in the database).

    “Delete” = Delete will also allow access for that IP address but this is because the row entry for that IP address is totally deleted from the login_lockdown table in the database.

    Let me know if the above makes sense to you?

    Thank you

    You wrote “the row containing that IP address will still remain in the login_lockdown table in the database”.
    Do you mean that the record remains in the DB but will be no longer displayed in the dashboard?

    Yes, that is correct.
