Just wondering if you’ve ever planned to implement a ‘failed login message’ for this plugin. Currently if a user enters their credentials incorrectly and tries to login, the login page will just refresh without throwing any ‘incorrect username or password’ messages.
We’ve had a lot of confused users thinking they can’t access a site/store after they think they’ve logged in successfully.April 4, 2018 at 8:34 pm #10741
I have that as a feature request, but I’m not adding new features now. You might want to try a more robust membership plugin.

^ Even if we were willing to pay for this feature?
I’ve looked at some other WP Membership Plugins, but your Private Site plugin accomplishes exactly what we need, minus the failed login attempt message(s).
I’m sure you are aware, but your plugin is quite popular and widely used as seen in posts like this one: https://blog.templatetoaster.com/make-wordpress-site-private-best-5-plugins/
Just curious as to why you’ve stopped developing your (currently free) plugin, but continue to provide support via this forum for users. I could see a lot of users willing to pay for a premium version with some additional features.
Its the one of the only Private Site Plugins that allows Visible Exclusions which is a key feature. We’d gladly pay you for premium version of this plugin or even as a contract payment to include the “Login Attempt Failed” messages.
Just some ‘food for thought’. Let me know if this is something you’d want to pursue or not.
Thanks for your ongoing replies and support!April 12, 2018 at 10:07 pm #10790
A lot of your questions are answered in a variety of posts and videos, which I’ll link to below. I adopted this plugin (along with Multiple Themes and a few others) from a gentleman who could no longer support them. I was an active user of this plugin and wanted to make sure it got security updates. But this isn’t my day job, and I have to make sure my work and family needs are met first.
The past two years have been very personally challenging. Two years ago, I lost both parents. Last year, we were hit by hurricane Matthew. And this year, we evacuated from Irma, experienced roof damage, moved across the country, and are currently house hunting. Until we find a house we want to buy and fully move in, much of my time will be occupied. I also have a lot of stuff (including most of my reference materials and my development machine) in boxes, until we move into our new home.
There are vendors who make a living from plugins, including those with membership plugins. They make plugin production their top priority. I do my best to support users, because many of them really need the support and it helps me stay connected to the WordPress community. But for now, diving into new code and new features is something that’s got to wait.
