Add Directories such as upload (3 posts)

    Would it be possible to add an option to "Watch" Other Directories such as the upload directory?

    It would be possible, but the upload directory has the potential to be huge. Plus you would trigger an alert every single time an image was uploaded.

    Probably not a practical direction.

    I agree that it's probably not practical for uploads, but how about for other directories that might be outside the areas normally scanned now?

    Example: I maintain a 'downloads' directory of files for visitors to my site to download. Nobody but an administrator should have access to those files (which are never changed and only infrequently added to), but if somebody did get access and messed with the files, my visitors would assume any malware was my fault. It sure would be nice to be able to have WordPress Sentinel watch these for me also. :)

    Please consider adding ability to include specific directories. Thanks!

    BTW, great plugin! Wish I had it installed before some @#$% found a flaw in a plugin that allowed them to add their spam crap to my theme file. I now use WordPress Sentinel on all of the WP-based sites that I run.
