I installed the update! The database update works. I checked it back in the base itself and it did not mess up anything - all clear. 2FA now appears as a global menu point - that works like a charme. My installed Google Auth mechanism also works as before. When I check editors now I get the formular and the input field for the code but no additional button shows up. I cannot login to the account and can not ensure myself if the plugin is managable. If I uncheck editors however the plugin does not appear in the root menu of the editors and I cannot make any settings. Now I am stuck because I do not actually know ehether this is a fault of my istallation or a pure illogical thinking error. I tried to works with Adminimize, a great plugin to trim the backend according to user roles. Unfortunately 2FA does not appear in the settings page of Adminimize and also User Role Editor does not show any additional rights management for the plugin. I guess all is due to the button I miss for send the first E-Mail. If I managed to do that maybe the menu point appears and I can reconfigure for true Google Auth in the settings itself. I am still working on this and have two fixes to go for. However at the moment I got a little stuck at the level of technical realization:
1st: force 2FA to appear in the editors backend without activation...I turned my head to the wordpress tutorials and docs, but I do not find the right approach.
2nd: make the button finally appear which for some obscure reasons does not happen. I finally deleted all my login page hacks...the css I gave you above. It turns back to WP standards....but also shows the text input without a button.
Just to ensure me: does the plug send the first code automatically without any button to appear or should it appear on first login-visit?
I am still eager to make that work and I hope it will happen, hehehe. The plug is great and though I could just keep it with the admin I could really need the high level of security for all my users as it is a CMS for a school which in the future should provide features that ask for the handling of sensitive data as well.
Any idea is really appreciated but I know it is hard for you to tell what happens.
Thanks for your valuable and high end support/ work on this.
