Support » Plugin: Shield Security: Protection with Smarter Automation » Multisite (IP white and black list do not work on a sub-site)

  • Hello,
    Pretty much what I said in the title. Fresh install, shield is the first plugin installed on a multisite setup (sub directory type of multisite : and, etc.)
    Despite having set up shield in the admin network of the multisite, with my fixed ip in the white list, the login protection features are still visible in the sub sites, and I got blackisted trying to access a sub site (made a mistake) with no way to remove the IP as it does not appear either in the blacklist or the whitelist of the shield in the “main” site. The only site I can access right now is the “main” site.
    Thanks in advance for your help.
