    while viewing the demo site, I got this error:

    Your access to this site has been limited

    Your access to this service has been temporarily limited. Please try again in a few minutes. (HTTP response code 503)

    Reason: Exceeded the maximum number of page requests per minute for humans.

    Important note for site admins: If you are the administrator of this website note that your access has been limited because you broke one of the Wordfence firewall rules. The reason you access was limited is: “Exceeded the maximum number of page requests per minute for humans.”

    If this is a false positive, meaning that your access to your own site has been limited incorrectly, then you will need to regain access to your site, go to the Wordfence “options” page, go to the section for Firewall Rules and disable the rule that caused you to be blocked. For example, if you were blocked because it was detected that you are a fake Google crawler, then disable the rule that blocks fake google crawlers. Or if you were blocked because you were accessing your site too quickly, then increase the number of accesses allowed per minute. 

    If you’re still having trouble, then simply disable the Wordfence firewall and you will still benefit from the other security features that Wordfence provides. 

    If you are a site administrator and have been accidentally locked out, please enter your email in the box below and click “Send”. If the email address you enter belongs to a known site administrator or someone set to receive Wordfence alerts, we will send you an email to help you regain access. Please read this FAQ entry if this does not work.

    I can assure you that I am a human – and I was also only viewing a few pages when it gave me that error, and I looked at the content prior to going to the next page.

    I wasn’t sure where to post this, but this seems like the wrong forum – please move to the proper area for discussion

    Thanks for the report. I upped the limits – if you still have issues, let me know.

    The various Weaver sites are under constant attack – as are most WP sites, actually. So we’ve tried to do everything we can to help eliminate attacks, or at least reduce their impact.
