I have a custom / front-end login page on my site and I want the look and feel to remain the same when I add 2 factor ?
If you have a custom login form other than wp-login.php then we will provide you the shortcode. Shortcode will work only for the customized login page created from wordpress plugins. We are not claiming that it will work with all the customized login page. In such case, custom work is needed to integrate two factor with your customized login page. You can submit a query in our Support Section in the plugin or you can contact us at email@example.com for more details.
I have installed plugins which limit the login attempts like Limit Login Attempt, Loginizer, Wordfence etc. Is there any incompatibilities with these kind of plugins?
The limit login attempt kind of plugins limit the number of login attempts and block the IP temporarily. So if you are using 2 factor along with these kind of plugins then you should increase the login attempts (minimum 5) so that you dont get locked out yourself.
If you are using any Security Plugin in WordPress like Simple Security Firewall, All in One WP Security Plugin and you are not able to login with Two-Factor.
Our Two-Factor plugin is compatible with most of the security plugins, but if it is not working for you. Please submit a query in our Support Section in the plugin or you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are using Async JS and CSS Plugin. Please go to its settings and add jquery in the list of exceptions and save settings. It will work. If you are still not able to get it right, Please submit a query in our Support Section in the plugin or you can contact us at email@example.com.
