WP Cerber Security 8.6.8

The coronavirus pandemic is not an excuse; we continue developing new versions of WP Cerber and supporting our customers. This version brings the following features and improvements.

New shortcode to display WP Cerber’s cookies

Using the new shortcode you can display a list of browser cookies set by WP Cerber. See several examples below. All attributes are optional. You can use any combination of them.

[wp_cerber_cookies type="comma" id="html_id"]
[wp_cerber_cookies type="table" style="background-color:gray; color:white;"]
[wp_cerber_cookies type="list" id="list_of_cookies" text="Any text to display above the list. It is shown if WP Cerber sets cookies."]

Deferred rendering of the custom login page

If it is enabled, the active WordPress plugins can execute their code to alter the custom login page before WP Cerber. WP Cerber’s code is invoked and executed after those plugins. This new feature can help you if you need to solve plugin compatibility issues. Read more here.

Minor changes

  • The scanner: the file status “Local file doesn’t exist” changed to “File is missing” and got a popup explanation.
  • The style of the scanner email reports has been improved.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed bug with displaying the status of an IP address on the Activity and Live Traffic admin pages: if an IP address is locked out (blocked), the red square icon is not displayed in the log row.
  • Fixed bug: if the name of a commercial plugin contains a special HTML symbol like ampersand, it cannot be uploaded to verify the integrity of the plugin.
