Limit Login Attempts 2.0beta3

Registration lockoutConsider trying this beta version of the Limit Login Attempts plugin– it should be more or less finished. Please post any problems (or successes).

The major focus of this new version is to protect the user login names of privileged users from discovery. Which, it turns out, is a lot of work to do correctly.

It includes optional restrictions on password reset attempts and new user registrations. The plugin also helps you see and modify the various names WordPress keep for each user. By default WordPress uses the user login name to construct author archive URLs, nickname, displayname and so on.

It also allows you to change the URL name of users. I actually find it rather strange that there is no way to change it in stock WordPress.

Remaining on the todo list: Translations, the readme.txt, some documentation, and some further testing.

Screenshots of new settings: 2.8.4, 2.5

    I like the new beta version, the limiting of how many users can be created in 24 hrs is an awesome touch. I have 1 request, and I don't know if it's simple or difficult, but could you add date/timestamp to when the last lockout or failed attempted IP was blocked? I had been wishing for this for a long time.

    I have your plugin on "every domain I use" it's the #1 plugin i have to have, and i've been getting pounded ALL DAY.... non stop by scripts.
