    Email Question:

    I’m trying to figure out how to set things up to get the Curation Traffic plugin to work, but keep getting errors from BPS Pro. After trying several other approaches, like changing the .htaccess file in the ROOT folder, I realized maybe I should change things in the WP-ADMIN and PLUGINS folders, so I have now done the following:

    1. deleted the .htaccess file from the plugins directory, and
    2. added the following code to the WP-ADMIN directory

    CUSTOM CODE WPADMIN TOP:

    <FilesMatch "curate-this\.(php)$">
    Order Allow,Deny
    Allow from all
    </FilesMatch>

    But even with these changes, I’m still getting the following error:

    Do I have the FilesMatch syntax correct?, and/or can you help me determine what I am doing wrong? Or if there is some conflict between the plugins? Thanks for any info.

    The Request URI shows that this plugin is simulating an RFI hacking attempt against your website, which BPS Pro is blocking.  To allow/whitelist this script on your website in the wp-admin htaccess file/wp-admin Custom Code add this skip/bypass rule to wp-admin Custom Code.

    1. Add the skip/bypass rule below to this wp-admin Custom Code text box:  

    # Curation Traffic plugin curate-this.php skip/bypass rule
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (curate-this\.php) [NC]
    RewriteRule . - [S=2]

    2.  Click the Save wp-admin Custom Code button.

    3.  Go to the Security Modes page and activate wp-admin BulletProof Mode again.
