  • <span class="resolved" aria-label="Resolved" title="Topic is resolved."></span>PHP notice fails REST API return November 14, 2017 7:16:00 PM
    Replies: 3 Hi Gregory, It seems that WP has deprecated the rest_enabled filter since its version 4.7.0 and your plugin (wp-cerber.php on line 1577) applies it without checking the WP version. In this circumstance, WP throws a PHP Notice each time you do an API request and it’s really annoying when you wait for a right formatted JSON in JavaScript 😉 Can you add a condition to apply the right filter (rest_enabled or rest_jsonp_enabled) and avoid this particular case? Hope this issue contributes to your plugin, Xavier. This topic was modified 4 days, 10 hours ago by 7studio. This topic was modified 4 days, 10 hours ago by 7studio.

    Replies: 5 I’m having problems resolving IP address detection (I have worked through The site runs through WP-Rocket caching and Cloudflare. The site is behind recverse proxy option is ticked. Your IP address as reported by Cerber is the Cloudflare IP. What is my IP address reports my actual IP address. TOOLS>Diagnostic>Server Info tab reports [HTTP_CF_CONNECTING_IP] => MY ACTUAL ADDRESS [HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR] => Cloudflare address [REMOTE_ADDR] => MY ACTUAL ADDRESS [SERVER_ADDR] => an address in the range – There is no [HTTP_X_REAL_IP] => Is this an example text string or what? What is the key referred to? From your step by step instructions I can’t work out what the string should be to add to the wp-config.php file as: define(‘CERBER_IP_KEY’, ‘HTTP_X_REAL_IP’ ); I guess I just don’t have the requisite background knowledge to make sense of the instructions. Can you explain more simply

  • Problems with latest update 5.7 November 13, 2017 3:58:00 PM
    Replies: 27 Hi, After the latest update I have a few problems. Even though my IP is whitelisted, any comment I try to post gets blocked with “ERROR: Sorry, human verification failed.”. Request to REST API is denied from my ip address and locked out. Comments are marked spam and denied, IP gets blocked and locked out. I’m not sure if legit readers/contributors are are having the same issue and not being able to post comments so I had to deactivate cerber until this issue is resolved. Thank you for your time

  • <span class="resolved" aria-label="Resolved" title="Topic is resolved."></span>Contact Form 7 | REST API whitelist November 7, 2017 12:25:00 PM
    Replies: 2 Hello, I am facing the problem, that my Contact Forms are not working anymore the loading circle keeps spinning. I found out that it ist due to the REST API Request of CF7. So I tried to add CF7 to the whitelist with the REST API namespace but I can’t find the right namespace. I disabled the REST API block for the moment but I would like to keep it up. Please tell me if there is a solution for this other than just to disable the REST API block. Thank you very much for this great plugin! br
