Yesterday we installed the hidden link plugin to prevent security breaches/more safety to e.g. brute force attack.

now it seems that installing this plugin caused another error in the toolset plugin on the homepage. Using Firebug we get the following screenshot, stating the request url is too long.

Our website is hidden link

Hi Bob,

As this is a plugin conflict there isn't much I can do here as the conflict is also identified and it is blocking the long urls that our Views plugin uses for pagination.

I have some good news however that we have changed how the pagination structure works in our Views plugin so you won't get the Long urls anymore.

This update will be made tomorrow so you can download it and test it out once it has been released.

If this doesn't work I would recommend that you use another security plugin such as BPS or Wordfence.
