[Plugin: Login LockDown] Appears to be broken

  • Same here.

    I tested the Login Lockdown on WordPress 3.2.1 and it simply doesn’t work. One can enter bad credentials numerous times without the Login Lockdown admin panel listing a blocked IP address.

    Be sure to test before relying on this plugin!

    I just tested and it absolutely locked me out after the 3rd incorrect password attempt. Remember, the default is to ignore incorrect usernames, since those have no chance of ever logging in anyway.

    @waldhorn – by “bad credentials”, did you use valid usernames but incorrect passwords?

    not working for me anymore either. this is so disappointing…

    I had a problem with this plugin as well. I installed yesterday. This morning, when I tried to access my login page, it was completely gone and replaced with this:

    WordPress database error Table ‘so-and-such_blog.wp_lockdowns’ doesn’t exist for query SELECT user_id FROM wp_lockdowns WHERE release_date > now() AND lockdown_IP LIKE ‘64.183.205%’ made by wp_signon, wp_authenticate, isLockedDown

    So basically it just locked me down without having made any attempts to login.

    Anyone know why this could be?

    @maydaypictures – that’s not locking you out, that is an error saying that the database doesn’t exist. Something happened to delete the tables in the database that Login LockDOwn uses. You should delete and reinstall, see if that helps. If not you can email me the url and I will look at it for you.

    And by that I mean delete and reinstall the plugin, not WordPress.

    Thanks! I did delete it through FTP earlier, and I was able to access my log in page again. I haven’t tried to reinstall as I’ve been pretty busy this morning. I’ll probably try later today or tomorrow. If it doesn’t work, I will definitely take you up on your offer to take a look.

    Thank you for your help!

    Doesn’t work for me. Does it have something to do with unwrittable htaccess? I changed permission to htaccess.

    @biurotax – no, Login LockDown doesn’t use .htaccess at all. When you say that it “doesn’t work”, what are the symptoms?

    I’m able to make unlimited login attempts and it doesn’t lock me. I use proper username and wrong passwords.

    @biurotax if you would like to drop me an email I would be happy to take a look for you. If you follow the credit link for the website in the plugin my contact info is there.

    @mvandemar, how can I contact you via email? There is something that I want to ask about this plugin. Thank you.

    It’s michael at my domain of endlesspoetry which is a dot com. 🙂

    I installed this a few days ago,
    and it doesn’t seem to be doing anything
    How can we tell? Is there a log file?

    @jadickerson – Try to log in 4 times in a row using a real username but the wrong password. What happens?
