Blank Admin Pages Using Ithemes Securityblank admin ithemes security
Posted 08 April 2014 - 05:12 AM
I have been using Better Security Plugin for years now and have recommended it many times to our clients. However, since upgrading to iThemes Security I have experienced issues with what i believe centre around the hide admin feature. This is specific to the new versions as i have never experienced this before on the multiple websites i use this plugin on.
The problem I face is that whenever i activate the plugin my admin pages become blank, meaning i have to deactivate the plugin manually via the FTP and strip out the changes in the htaccess just to regain control.
I've attempted all the ususal problem solving like deactivating all other plugins and reverting back to the twenty twelve theme, but nothing works. The admin just becomes blank again as soon as i reactivate the plugin. Very frustrating.
Can anyone offer any advice/help?
Thank you, Mike

I can't fix it but have information that will probably help support:
1. The page dies at the do_action('admin_menu', ''); call on wp-admin/incldues/menu.php
2. Then I figured out a specific script of ours is causing the page blank (when Security is activated) when it calls a DB query with $wpdb.
The crazy thing is that this query should not be called without sending an Ajax request to the server. The only place we activate this is here:
add_action('wp_ajax_bftpro_intelligence', array('BFTIAjax', 'dispatch'));
I think something is messing VERY badly in the WordPress hooks flow.
(Other files also cause the errors after this one is removed, so it's not some easy fix I can apply from here. They should not be messing the flow - other plugin developers rely on the documented loop).

If you see this, and could offer instructions for regaining control (login and dashboard access), I would grateful.
I tried to deactivate the plugin earlier today and have been locked out ever since.
I've modified .htaccess and tried other approaches, but to no avail.

Support your software, please.
provide instruction for how to resolve the issue that has been created been you and your company changed its name, and the manner in which this plugin works.
Ultimately you need to rely on the goodwill of your customers (paid or unpaid) - we are your customers - you're not engendering goodwill when you lock us out of our dashboards, and then offer zero solutions to resolve the matter. Like it or not, a portion of your job IS customer relations - embrace it. The WP forums are howling for an official response - give them one - TODAY!

I'm sorry but this post was left in moderation for no other reason than that it was posted in a forum that is not moderated frequently. The forum is related to Free Themes.
So in response to:
I am just trying to direct everyone to the correct place to post their support requests so that they will receive appropriate support in the most efficient manner. No high-hat or attitude intended at all.
iThemes Security Pro users have an iThemes username and password, and will receive fast priority support through the ticketed support channel I mentioned and linked to. Users of the free version need to post on the wp.org site
I do apologise for having missed your post here though,
