    For security reasons, I renamed my wp-content folder. This plugin generated 404 errors, after some inspections I found this plugin were trying to read a file:

    Hope this issue will be fixed soon, many WP users are not using the default wp-content folder.

    Hey Handaoko,

    Thank you very much for the tip-off... looks like I've been lazy with my path definitions. I shall look to update this in the future release.

    You can probably make a quick change if you want it to work with your current setup... let me know if you want a hand with this.

    Thanks for offering help.

    I'm not good in programming, so I took the less risky way. I simply created a folder name wp-content and copied/pasted the plugin into it. It works without any problem.

    But I'm afraid others may not know it so they can't use this plugin together with for example Better WP Security plugin which may change default WP wp-content folder name.
