[resolved] Locked out of my site with no options (6 posts)

    This most excellent plugin does a fine job however, I had to delete the plugin using my FTP client and go into PHPmyAdmin to removed the plugin tables as it did not play nicely with another one of my plugin... http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/clkercom-clip-art/

    WP-Sentinel saw an image being placed from one of my posts and did not like that the image did not reside on my server by was accessed through the clker.com server. I got blocked out of my site while logged in as an admin. Ouch.

    Anyway I have moved on to http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/secure-wordpress/ but I still beleive you an excellent plugin here, just not to friendly of a WP plugin setup options, I am more of a security novice.

    Ditto, the same problem. I have a blog now that I cannot get into. I think you have a few issue to resolve!

    guys i'm so sorry, i don't recieve email notifications from this forum :(
    in anycase, you could just force your ip address to change (turn off your router and then turn it on again), so the ip ban should be fixed.

    That is an unacceptable solution. This plugin should include an IP white list.

    Evilsocket I have a similar problem. I tried all advices and here is the situation. My wp sentinel tables in the sql database are EMPTY. I yet continue to get this message displayed for the website on my own ip:
    Due to suspicious activities, you are temporarily banned from this site.
