Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » What happened with the UI? It’s a huge step backwards…

  • I’m a webdesigner, much more a creative guy than a technician. I love to design and build nice websites for my clients, and add some level of security to it.

    With the old Wordfence, I felt ‘somewhat’ familiar and trusted my little process of configuring the basics.

    Now with the new Wordfence… It all looks so overwhelming. Bloated. Kind of messy. A few clicks, and I gave up; really didn’t know where to start. Lost the feeling of ‘control’.

    I’m convinced you guys added better protection, and I’m sure Wordfence does a great job at security, but what is it worth if someone like me (remember, the creative webdesigner) can’t configure the thing?

    What about creating a kind of wizard? Asking a few questions after installing the plugin, which makes it easy to configure the basics, while being sure that it’s all okay? Make some distinction between basic settings (for guys like me), and advanced settings (for the geeks)?

    For now, I’m going to look for alternatives…

    EDIT
    Decided to change my 2-star into a 3-star, because I think the product itself, the features are great; it’s just the UI I was frustrated about, yesterday.
