    I've done a multisite install and wanted a way to protect network sites, but upon early install of this security plugin, it won't let me do some basic functions, like upload favicon "because of security" etc. I have a backup. How do I 1) undo one click protection, and how do I protect the multisite without taking basic functions from the site so I can manage the site and network of sites efficiently. I"m just trying to protect it from hacking, etc.


  2. This depends a lot on the choices you select. For example, you can manually upload a favicon via ftp/sftp regardless of plugin settings. All other situations would depend entirely on how you're trying to accomplish this functionality.

    You can undo one-click protection by disabling all features activated in the plugin. As for protecting the site, turn on as many features as you can without conflicting with your other plugins.

    The problem here is some plugins legitimately use techniques that are also common to hackers. Many features in this plugin block such techniques and then have to be turned off when they conflict with a legitimate plugin. Just turn on as much as you can. Every feature you use makes you that much more secure.
