[Plugin: Limit Login Attempts] Plugin 1.6.1 does not reset retries on time

  • P.S. The second test I mentioned has finally run to completion. It did reset the number of retries in less than the default value of 12 hours, but it took more than the 2 hour time limit I specified. I had only one failed login attempt during this entire time period. Could something else be causing the reset timer to restart?

    Hi,

    Thanks for taking the time to test things: more eyes makes less bugs!

    I won’t be able to really test this until this evening, but I thought I’ll mention how it is currently supposed to work and give a potential explanation for the observed behavior:

    “Retries valid” duration is set at the time of the last attempt — we store when they will time-out rather than when they happen — and any new failure will reset this value using the currently configured duration.

    (This means if you made the failed attempt before changing the duration it would still use the old value.)

    I’ll test it and check the code in question later today.

    Re: confusing wording. I’ll take a look at improving the text.

    Thank you,
    Johan

    Thanks, Johan! I appreciate all your hard work.
