In progress Forum login security

Post by Bignuggs on July 4th 2015, 8:48 am

Hope I have this question in the right area.
If a forum member forgets their password, is there somewhere in the Admin Panel where they can be blocked from trying again say after about 5 attempts and stay blocked for about 15 to 30 minutes.
cheers

There is not an option for that, but there is a built in system from Forumotion where a member will be blocked for sometime after many attempts to log in.

Thanks for the response, can you tell me how long the built in block lasts for.

If you enter your password 'X' amount of times wrong then you'll be banned for 30 minutes from logging in.

One more question. "X" is how many attempts at trying to login ?
