permenant blacklist plus a further event login plugin
Firstly, thanks so much for this must have plugin. I noted last night that I had 19 unknown users from China, Turkey and Hungary who wanted to volunteer to be my site admin - how thoughtful ;-( . All were prevented from doing so by your plugin. I am happy to send you the logs if requested.
On the subject of admin user I would strongly recommend that this user is replaced by another user with admin role who's login name is NOT the SAME as their display name. Also a decent hard to guess password... Once you login with this new user you can safely delete admin and accept the option to move all posts over to the new user's
I wondered if there was a light weight plugin that anyone could recommend that logged correct login attempts, approved comments, and other selectable events..Yes I am getting paranoid...
