    Hello!

    I renamed the folder “plugins” inside wp-content and edited wp-config.php as described in the WordPress Codex https://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Moving_plugin_folder.

    Everything works perfectly (as in “not broken”), but Hidden Plugin Folder (HPF) shows tens (or hundeds) of alerts for every file in the plugins folder:

    An unrecognized/non-standard WP file was found in your /plugins/ folder. This file may be a hacker file or contain hacker code. If you recognize this file and/or it is safe to ignore this file you can ignore this file check by adding the HPF Ignore Rule shown below in the Ignore Hidden Plugin Folders & Files textarea box option to make this Alert go away.

    However, as you can imagine, I can’t whitelist all the files since it would take too much time, and this behavior is not normal anyway.

    Could you please fix this bug in the next version? Thank you in advance!

    This will be corrected in the next BPS version.  Thanks for reporting this.
