Don't worry about Watchdog

Don't worry about Watchdog. It is a plugin that Dan set up to block suspicious logins from other countries and blacklisted IP's. So far it works fine on the blog, but he's still having issues getting it to work properly on the forum. When it's working correctly what should happen is you'll never see that login unless you were to login from someplace like China or Pakistan, or other country known for hackers, spammers, and scammers.

I told him people with certain browsers are seeing it and when you click the index. That should not happen. If you are accessing the forum from the US, then you shouldn't see that security login if it's working correctly.

I'm logging in from the UK. Will the issue prevail for me?

Good to see you NIP!

Apparently it's still not working properly as I'm still getting that annoying watchdog. I have bookmarks that I can use without that dog bothering me, but when I log in.....he's there to greet me. :cursing:

As long as you're not selling kitchens, or a "writing service" I think you'll be OK. (I've had to swing the "banhammer" at a LOT of those!)

Fair point, thankfully I offer neither of those services! :D

:? Guess that means I have to peddle my "writing service for selling kitchens" on another site? :( I had such high hopes too..... :rofl: :rofl:

On a more serious side, thanks for the fix. :D
