Support » Plugin: iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security) » Option to "secure site from basic attacks" gone

  • Resolved nothin7


    Love the plugin. When I first install this, I prefer to not click the “secure site from basic attacks” button because it emails the admin if I don’t change the DB backup settings first. So I had been changing that and then going back to “secure site from basic attacks”. But with this version of Better WP Security, I don’t see a way to click that button if you don’t click it immediately after installing the plugin! It would be very convenient. Is there a way? Thanks!

    Have to tried to click Security (left menu) > Dashboard?

    Mine is still there.

    Weird…it usually does give me that button, and it just did on another site, but on the site I was working on, it just took me to the list of protections in various colors. Maybe it was a fluke. I guess I’ll mark this as resolved until it happens again.

    @nothin7 The button depends on, at least partially, on your configuration. If all the individual options that make up the basic security are already selected (these vary based on your configuration) then you won’t see the button. In addition, as of version 3.4.4, the option was moved to the install script only as it was causing some confusion when displayed later.
