• New Option:
 Plugin Firewall Test Mode: A new Test Mode button has been added to the Plugin Firewall settings. Clicking the Test Mode button will allow you to check the frontend of your website as if you are visitor to your website to check for any problems or errors. You do not need to check the backend wp-admin Dashboard of your site. AutoPilot Mode is also enabled when you are in Test Mode. Plugin Firewall AutoPilot Mode will automatically create any new Plugin Firewall whitelist rules (once every 1 minute in Test Mode) for frontloading plugin scripts on the frontend of your website while Test Mode is turned On. Clicking the Plugin Firewall Activate or Deactivate button turns Off Plugin Firewall Test Mode. The BPS Pro Dashboard Status Display will display: PFW: Test Mode : 1 Min : 00:00 AM when Test Mode is turned On.
