    I have identified the problem with the update that caused this, and emailed the info to the plugin author. I believe the breakage was unintentional. In the meantime, the plugin has been de-listed to prevent any further breakages. When the author fixes the plugin and contacts us, we will re-list it.

    Thank you for the update, Samuel Wood.
    I’ve to find a way to remove this plugin earlier than the plugin author will (hopefully) take care of the damage he created.

    I deleted the plugin-folder of Spam FreeWordpress via FTP. At least have access into my panel again. Just the file “spam-free-wordpress/tl-spam-free-wordpress.php” obviously remained, but was disablede by the system. May this cause issues in the future?

    I made an unfortunate mistake with a hook in SFW. I have fixed it in the new version. My apologies.

    Kind regards,


    This certainly does not look like a mistake. I would like details on how to gain access to my WordPress dashboard again.

    The file “spam-free-wordpress/tl-spam-free-wordpress.php” will remain, but your system automatically will disable the file.

    I couldn’t access my admin section at all, as the ‘hide’ link did nothing.

    The directory has been deleted and I’m up and running again, a little wiser.
