With Shield Pro, you have the ability to customize messages displayed to the user. 


If you want to communicate to the users in a particular manner and add your own custom messages, you can do that by using the following options:

Firewall Block Message

You can customize message displayed to the user when a firewall block is triggered. Default message is "You were blocked by the Shield".


To access this option, go to Firewall module => User Messages:

GASP Checkbox Text

You can customize message displayed to the user beside the checkbox. 

To access this option, go to Login Guard module => User Messages.

GASP Alert Text

You can customize the alert message displayed to the users if they don't check the box.

To access this option, go to Login Guard module => User Messages.

Login Failed

You can customize message displayed if the user triggers the IP transgression system through a failed login. Default message is "Warning: Repeated login attempts that fail will result in a complete ban of your IP Address."To access this option, go to IP Manager module => User Messages.

Remaining Transgressions

You can customize message displayed if the user triggered the IP Transgression system and reports how many transgressions remain before being blocked. Default message is "Warning: You have %s remaining transgression(s) against this site and then you will be black listed. Seriously, stop repeating what you are doing or you will be locked out."


To access this option, go to IP Manager module => User Messages.
