I need some help with my .htaccess file. I use a plugin on my wordpress site called Better WP Security. I found that the way it adds banned ip's to the htaccess list that it doesn't ban them from using the post method. I opened an issue ticket on his github and also a support message on the wp plugin page... two months later no fix.
I don't write htaccess files very often so I'm not familiar with the different ways it can be done.
This is my htaccess files as written by the plugin: http://pastebin.com/Bh8yyFZr
The first half is the hackrepair.com blacklist which you can ignore. I'm trying to figure out why post method isn't being blocked. My assumption is that its the way the plugin writes the rules but I could be wrong.
I verified this issue using a command through terminal but I'd rather not post it unless requested.
