Hi,

Some strange issue with wpForo and Wordfence. While non-existent pages in the FORUMS return a 404, Wordfence doesn't log (=understand) them as such. You can see that in their live traffic log. And if Wordfence doesn't undesrtand 404, rate limiting options do not work.

Other (non-forum) pages correctly log as 404. So this is a wpForo issue only. And even with wpForo internal caching disabled, the issue remain.

ANY ideas, since this a major issue. We rely to 404 to block hacking attempts using Wordfence rate limit.

Thanks

(i will also check if other than 404 rate limiting options work in the forum pages)

@dimalifragis,

I'm sorry but I have no comment here. Maybe in the future I'll try to find time to understand this issue.
