I would like to suggest that for future releases that the Ignore Rules also have a separate button. I spent over two hours trying to determine how to create an ignore rule in the latest version of PSI - ****Extremely not intuitive User Interface!!!**** Even reverting back to the original interface would be a thousand km improvement in functionality. The "hover" function is not good at all - the folder is the size of two of these letters together, and the red "not" sign is not much larger than the dot on the letter i

Unless the user is going blind and has their text set to massive size, this is not seen by the average user.

Dank U Wel,

Hi ,

In general I agree with your comments regarding older eyes and the (general) inability of young "webmasters" (sic) to consider the likes of me ; the (latest) forum version font sizing is far worse , even after a concerted effort brought in some modifications :))

The red blob is (just guessing) a red circle with a white horizontal line as per European "No Entry" traffic signs .

The Secunia PSI Manual (PDF) is found in the LHS column under Learn More in the Dashboard ; therein :-

Page 7 , Section 4.2 , "Scan Results" tells you about the two invisible/weirdly yuk coloured icons .

On page 10 , "Detected Instances , right click for further options" shows you a more easily legible menu option for "ignore rules" and "open folder" .

Hope that helps .

Anthony
