I was getting attempted Admin logins from Countries all over the world. Africa, Mexico, Russia, Brazil, Indonesia, Serbia, you name it. Dozens and dozens. About 1 every minute.
Installed the plugin and didn't notice a difference. Turns out I didn't set it up properly. At the top of the settings page you have to click on a link to download a file and then upload it. Easy to do, I just missed it at first. As soon as I did this and chose every Country except U.S. and Canada and every login attempt was blocked. Amazing!
love the support to upload the dat file
I did block all countries except my. It is working perfect.
I'm using several Security and login attempt monitors - I was getting lots of hits (attacks) from Ukraine, Russia and UAE.
Installed this plugin as well. Instantly noticeable drop in attacks. Excellent.
A very simple plugin that just does what it's supposed to do.
What more can anyone ask for?
Friend developer, for 3 days back in my wordpress sites were with your Administration Panel Very Slow I had a big fight with my service provider web host thinking the problem was with them, but was not, I was sick in can not find a solution.
I use almost 25 active plugins on each of my sites, and none of them had this error slowness in WP Administration Panel. I disabled your plugin on each site and everything returned to normal.
I believe that other users of your plugin is having this problem, check ASAP, because the plugin is causing a big slowdown in WP Administration Panel.
Your Plugin is a great safety feature, but by this time need urgent repair.
Funciona, uffs!! Una molt bona idea!! Genial !!
This plugin simply does not work. I am still being bombarded with ip's from China, Romania, & Ukraine.
I was being peppered with failed logins, always from foreign countries. This app blocked them all! 100% successful.
FYI, I use All In One WP Security, which shows me the failed log-ins.
The only caution: When you click "select all" on the country list, it also selects my own country! (although there's a note saying it won't select your own country) - apparently there's a small bug there.
Admin Block Country 1.0 blocked me out of my WP admin page (apparently by changing the ht.acess file). I'm a WP newbie, so I don't have a clear understanding of the issue, but I had to resolve it through my host server. Although I really like the idea of blocking my site from IPs by country, this plug-in was just a headache. I am using WordPress 3.6, and the plug in does not seem to be compatible with this version.
Update: I received a quick response from the developer, who is very helpful. I suspect my problem was either from plug-in (Better WP Security 3.5.5) or theme (Responsive 188.8.131.52) incompatibilities, as I was able to get access to my admin page after deactivating both of these files via my server, as well as Admin Country Block. Once I was in Admin again, I deleted Admin Block Country, deactivated Better WP Security, cleared my .htacess file, reactivated my Responsive theme, refreshed my permalinks and everything was back to normal.
