If you are using the free version, please post on the WordPress.org support forums: http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/better-wp-security

thanks for your cooperation,
Ronald

Hi there,
on some of my blogs, I installed WP Better Security and locked them down between 10 pm and 8 am. Outwith that time, I should be able to log in.
However, I get the login page, and after I entered the details, it does not show the dashboard but goes straight to the homepage.

Clients are getting a bit irate as they need to update their websites and can no longer access it.

I checked the htaccess file and one contained the below. I removed this all, but still no change.

Can you please help on how to disable the Plugin somehow?

Many thanks!!
