  • A bit of nagging.. but it’s gone once you close it (unless you found a way of making it reappear). If you’re 1-star-unhappy about the anti-spam plugin, you can just stop using it.

    Hi @mikes-1

    I agree the ad is a bit annoying. But maintaining the plugins and fixing the issues takes a lot of time. I am doing this for free for years. Unfortunately people almost don’t support plugins they like. So I had to add the banner to cover some expenses on the free plugins maintenance.

    And there are few options you can choose from:

    • You can close the banner and you will not see it anymore.
    • You can try the Pro version of the plugin which does not contain banner.
    • You can fork the plugin and create new version of the plugin without the banner. Open Source is awesome and gives everyone this freedom to modify and distribute the existing code. Keep in mind that you need to maintain it with every new version of WordPress and fix the issues you might have.
    • You can find an alternative which will work better and free of charge and does not contain any ads. (I was not able to find it for myself and that is why I created this plugin for myself and shared it with everyone for free.)

    Thank you @peoy. You are right. The banner is gone once you close it.

    @webvitaly how about your other similar plugin that protectd from brute force login attempts ? Will it ever be updated to support the s2Member login widget ?

    Hey @peoy
    Sorry, missed the original thread and unfortunately it was closed automatically already.
    The Security-Protection plugin is compatible with every plugin who adds proper WordPress hooks to forms.
    These is the list of hooks I use to add custom form inputs to the forms:

    add_action('login_form', 'secprot_form_inputs');
    add_action('register_form', 'secprot_form_inputs');
    add_action('lostpassword_form', 'secprot_form_inputs');
    add_action('woocommerce_login_form', 'secprot_form_inputs');

    It would be much better if you will reach the author of the s2Member plugin regarding this request to add proper WordPress hooks into his widget login form.

    Please let me know if any questions.

    @webvitaly Since the s2Member plugin is abandoned (with recent promises to bring it to life again), this was an easy fix that I just did myself.

    For others, as a reference, I added a hook just after the password field was displayed in the s2Member Pro Login Widget:
    plugins/s2member-pro/src/includes/classes/ (search for “password”, add just below the input field):
    do_action('s2member_pro_login_widget', get_defined_vars());

    then in your file, security-protection.php, below the other ‘add_action’ lines:
    add_action('s2member_pro_login_widget', 'secprot_form_inputs');
