View Full Version : Can't login with auser front-end login form while JHackGuard is enabled

First and foremost, many thanks to Siteground to make this security extension, may it torment hackers as much as can be http://forum.siteground.com/images/icons/icon10.gif.
I've been advised to try JHackGuard on my website, I've installed it and while I still don't know how it works I've had a problem:
I can't login with the standard auser login form:
It's an ajax form and all seems to work until the security image field: once entered I should click on a blank space in order to have it activate le login button... which doesn't happen.
Does anyone know why please?

I have checked the provided URL, unfortunately I cannot say what exactly is the problem. I have tested the form and after entering the security code the login button became active. Still it seems the jhack plugin was not enabled at that point ...
There are quite a lot restrictions that jhack guard enables and it is possible (although not probable) they interfere with 3rd party extensions such as the form you are using.
I am afraid this is as much as I can add without looking at the actual source code for the form you are using but I would advise you to checkout the source code of the jhack guard plugin itself and go through the restrictions applied. Hopefully something will show you what exactly is the issue.
The plugin itself is written in a clean manner with explanatory comments and clarifications so you should not have much troubles.

Thanks a lot for your reply.
I got both extensions to work together by setting
I am not sure if the plugin is still as efficient this way but unfortunately I'm not skilled enough to tweak it.
Surely it's better than not having it.
Time will tell.

The change that you made will simply allow GET requests on your website. While it is an additional security tweak to disable such requests I certainly doubt you will experience any issues.

Same problem occured here after i installed JHackGuard.
With Firefox i could not access my site, but after uninstalling JHackGuard with another browser, all was back to normal.
I guess i have to look for another solution against hackers.
