  • This is an update to the above question.

    All the problems described above remain the same. The plugin logs all valid logins and logouts, but it does not show anything when I deliberately attempt a bad login. Why not?

    However, my bad logins are recorded by Better WP Security, and also by Wordfence. So why are the bad logins not showing up in ThreeWP Activity Monitor?

    To make this even more strange, when I log out and don’t visit the site’s admin panel for several hours, it appears that ThreeWP DOES record bad logins from brute force attacks from obscure countries around the world. Okay, that’s good! But why does it not record my own bad logins when I am trying to test the plugin? Very strange.

    What happens if you disable Better WP Security and Wordfence?

    No change after disabling Wordfence. However, when I disable Better WP Security, the problem appears to go away. I can now see all the bad logins!

    This is kinda strange, since ThreeWP had been previously working just fine alongside BWPS for a long time, so I’m not sure why they are conflicting now.

    I intend to continue using BWPS, so I’d like to figure out how to fix the conflict with ThreeWP. Are there any settings in BWPS that you think I should turn off (or on) to prevent the apparent conflict with ThreeWP (or vice versa)?

    Thanks.

    I found a sort of solution, and maybe this info will help other people, too.

    I have turned off the the function in Better WP Security that relates to limiting login attempts (under the Login tab in BWPS), and now ThreeWP is working properly … and BWPS is also working (but without the login limits features).

    To get some login limiting features, I next installed Limit Login Attempts plugin, which seems to duplicate most of the login limit features of BWPS. I also found a plugin called Whitelist IP for Limit Logins Attempts, which allows you to whitelist your own IP address (or others) so you won’t get locked out of your own system by the Limit Login Attempts plugin.

    And ThreeWP appears to still be working properly now, so I’m happy!
