I had tried the verification again after you posted this and nothing happened. I’m trying it once again. My .htaccess file is configured correctly. I know I need to wait again to see if this next verification goes through but this may be my sixth time trying to verify and this is spanning weeks at this point.
Are other WordPress publishers getting verified without issue? I can’t tell if this issue is more localized as I still don’t see many threads regarding WordPress. Though lack of those threads could mean people are getting verified without issue?
Please point me to any other troubleshooting that may be helpful or I can work with someone(s) from the team to try to get this resolved.
I’m still hanging tight because I believe in this product and understand the virtue of patience but this is frustrating. WordPress.org creators are a big potential pool of Brave users and BAT beneficiaries so we need to ensure this is ironed out as there’s still too much barrier to entry for publishers running WordPress if the first and crucial step is this frustrating. First mover disadvantage I suppose.
