Awesome plugin to discourage all of the spammers.
Your plugin prevents the attacks that search the user logins and run brute force attacks.
That is exactly what I was looking for.
Plugin works as expected, code is clean and easy, it does perfectly what I want: Disable author pages (even by url-guessing), gives me all the options for redirecting or displaying a 404-page even if the author-id does not exist. That increases security for WP as I wanted it! I would say: This is a must-have for all, who don't want a list of articles by author.
I think exposing the authors name as the login id is a huge securely flaw.
This plugin helps me prevent exposing that id.
Thank you for the great plugin!
Plugin works perfect with very good options.
super simple interface, works perfect (on WP 4.0)
Great solution for me
Thanks for developing this. It works perfectly and I love the options you included. I hope you'll be around to update the plugin (if and as needed). Great job and again .. THANKS!
I've been seeing failed attempted logins with real usernames on a lot of sites I manage. I suspect that botnets are picking up real usernames by accessing the /author/ directory. This plugin hopefully puts an end to that.
Well done for making such a simple solution.
