Support » Plugin: Secure Hidden Login » Redirecting loop problem

  • Alex,
    I really like your plugin but I am having problems with a redirect loop. For example, I just tried logging in and got this message: “The page isn’t redirecting properly Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.”

    I deleted the code generated from the plugin in .htaccess and the redirecting problem stops.

    This is a multisite.

    I have not tested the plugin in a multi-site environment. However, I’m also not sure why there would be an issue. I will try and look into this for you soon.

    Hi Alex,
    Thanks for the response. Since I don’t know what “should” be written to .htaccess from your plugin, I have included the code that appeared and caused the redirecting loop. I have had the plugin installed on the multisite probably since April. In August, we experienced not being able to login any of the sites because of a redirecting loop. We deleted the extra code from .htaccess but left your plugin activated. It worked fine for another month and then the same thing happened again. Again, I deleted the extra code and it is working. Unfortunately, without knowing what triggers this, it is a real problem. Other than that – I really like your plugin. Here is the code – hopefully it will give you a clue.

    `# BEGIN Secure Login
    <FilesMatch “wp-login.php”>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !^.*wp-iphone.*$
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !^.*wp-android.*$
    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !^action=rp&key=.*$
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http(s)?://(www.)? [NC]
    RewriteRule .* – [F]
    # END Secure Login
