Files & folders permission check (2 posts)

    As various security plugins suggest, I changed the "wp-content" folder to be something else, and set the permissions to 755. However, I still get a "D" for:

    Files & folders permission check
    Insufficient rights on wp-content folder!
    Insufficient rights on wp-content/themes folder!
    Insufficient rights on wp-content/plugins folder!

    Am I still getting a "D" because your plugin does not understand that I changed the name of the "wp-content" folder and it just cannot find it? Or is there a bug? Or do you know of a way to fix it?

    Thank you!!

    The problem appears to be at line 468 of securitycheck.class.php. For some reason this line is returning false:


    It checks to see if there is a WP_CONTENT_DIR define in your wp-config.php. An alternate way to check (which fixed the issue for me) is this:


    Altering plugin files is a short term fix though - it will be overwritten with the next update. Hopefully the plugin author will fix the issue before then.
