    Hi there,
    I’m getting this error in my security log:
    I’m not all that impressed with the way the plugin works as it inserts code on all pages regardless of whether you are using the code and seems to use some display:none; type to leave the code in the page and just hide it when you deactivate the sharing buttons in any of the 3 possible positions (above, on the side and below content). However the client likes it but now I’m seeing this error in the log that seems to be some type of counter for shares… Any ideas what I need to do to get it to work without errors?

    UPDATE: BPS Pro 13+ and BPS 2.0+ versions have a feature called: Setup Wizard AutoFix (AutoWhitelist|AutoSetup|AutoCleanup) that automatically creates plugin and theme whitelist rules and automatically sets up and cleans up caching plugins htaccess code.

    1. Add the admin-ajax.php skip/bypass rule below to this wp-admin Custom Code text box: CUSTOM CODE WPADMIN PLUGIN/FILE SKIP RULES
    2. Click the Save wp-admin Custom Code button.
    3. Go to the Security Modes page and Activate wp-admin Folder BulletProof Mode.

    Note:  The skip rule must be [S=2] because it will be written to your wp-admin .htaccess file above skip / bypass rule [S=1].  If you have other wp-admin skip/bypass rules already then either combine them or add this skip/bypass rule separately above the other rules and change the skip #.  Example:  If you already have skip #’s 2 and 3 then this rule would be skip rule #4.

    # admin-ajax.php skip/bypass rule
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (admin-ajax\.php) [NC]
    RewriteRule . - [S=2]

    Cool thanks very much
    I hadn’t ever used that, hopefully I’ll pick that up next time I see a URL that is referring to the admin area…

    We are planning on adding additional Admin Dismiss Notices that will be checking for a lot of things like this.
    Example Error Message: “Plugin X is using admin-ajax.php which is being blocked by BPS.  To resolve this issue add this custom code skip/bypass rule to blah blah blah….”

    That sounds great, nice idea, and of course you can carry on teasing with great ideas like that 😉

    This was actually supposed to be completed and in BPS Pro, but BPS Pro development is currently about 8 months behind schedule.  We have implemented the first stage of this new error checking code in BPS Pro 5.9 and will add a large majority of these Admin Dismiss Notices in 6.0.
