Forgot password timegate error

Postby FireFly9 » Fri Feb 09, 2018 4:24 pm

On the log in form on my site
when a password is entered wrong I get the
Error
Form submission has been blocked (TimeGate)

Can anyone help me with this. What is time gate and where do I correct this?

And how do I activate the 'forgot password' feature.

Thanks

Figured it. It's in the Global Configuration, User, Password Option, reset time.
I had set this too high at 6. I assume that is 6 seconds.
I put it back to 1 and that corrected the issue.
