I tracked down and fixed a logic error that was in the prior version. The plugin now works as intended and is tested up to WordPress 2.5.1. I hope to be looking into testing and making any necessary adjustments for 2.6 shortly.

Sorry for the delay on updating, but Login LockDown 1.2 has now been released. I fixed the issue that Continue Reading »

Just to let you guys know, it looks like the IP address that Bad Neighborhood runs on has been added to Project Honeypot (IP data can be viewed here). I had thought that you actually had to spam someone after hitting a honeypot in order to get added to the blacklist, but a friend of mine is running http:BL on her site, and the crawler is blocked from seeing her content.

Despite the loss of all historical data, the site is back and fully functional, aside from one tool. The Keyword Suggestion Tool based on AOL Leaked Data is currently offline.

I modified the way the urls are passed through the AJAX calls and everything appears to be working again. Please let me know if anyone encounters any more issues. :)
