  • Resolved southerncrosswebs


    I read amongst the topics here that one of the plugin developers said this Plugin has made it impossible to block your own ip (about 18 months ago). I am here to advise you that this plugin has blocked me on 3 of my own web sites. The only way I could stop this was to delete your plugin. To add to the mystery of this the plugin has not blocked me on about 6 other websites even though it is the same IP. There is obviously some quirk with the plugin for this to happen. It is a shame as I was using this plugin for years without issue. Now (this problem has been occurring over your last 2 updates) I just have to delete the plugin to avoid the problem.

  • Suddenly out of nowhere today everyone was blocked from my website with the message: “Your IP has been blocked!”. It’s an open website, with no login needed. No one should ever be blocked unless they try to login to the admin area. A search of my database found the exact block message in this plugin. When I removed the plugin, website access was back to normal.
