   - ''enable_test'':  When checked, the test IPs and most incoming login attempts are tested against the <allowed> list and their status reported when an administrator is logged in. When not checked, login attempts are not blocked. As a practical matter, this gives the admin a chance to set up an initial allowed list without being blocked.  **//Do not forget to turn this to true after initializing your ips.//**  To stop reporting after ''enable_test'' is set to true, remove all test IPs from the testing list.    - ''enable_test'':  When checked, the test IPs and most incoming login attempts are tested against the <allowed> list and their status reported when an administrator is logged in.

-The list of allowed IP addresses need not be complete addresses. For instance, if on your internal LAN, you have multiple users with IPs beginning with 192.168.1, you can include the following in your allowed list: ''192.168.1.'' All IPs on your LAN will be able to login.  Please note the period after the 1.  Without it, IPs with numbers like ''192.168.123'' could be allowed login privileges.  Be sure to test your own IP against the allowed list before logging out the first time, so that you don't accidentally lock yourself out. If that happens, __you can disable the plugin__ by placing an empty file named ''disabled'' in the plugin's directory.+The list of allowed IP addresses need not be complete addresses.

 If you choose to log failed login attempts, it's a good practice to delete the log periodically, since thousands of ip addresses can potentially be logged. If you choose to log failed login attempts, it's a good practice to delete the log periodically, since thousands of ip addresses can potentially be logged.
