WordPress on WordPress crime

WordPress on WordPress crime

Tweet When you are a large content management system (CMS) that supports roughly 19% of the internet, people are going to come after you. Nothing invites hacking like popularity. It’s a large reason why years ago I always felt safe having a Mac. No one messed with it because way more people had PC’s. This is the case with WordPress. So many websites run on it that it’s worth it for hackers to jack it. Recently, they even used WordPress features to attack another very popular WordPress site (they wouldn’t say which one), according to the web security firm Sucuri. […]

WordPress version 3.3 is now available!

Tweet If you’re into using WordPress as a CMS and/or blogging platform, these are fun days. Days when a new version of the popular platform hits the streets. Or should I say, “shows up as an icon at the top of your dashboard.” We mentioned previously that WordPress version 3.3 was available for beta testers in October, well now it’s available to everyone. Some features that I’m already digging: -When you hover over an option on the left side of the dashboard, it automatically brings up the entire sub menu for that option. Doesn’t sound like a huge deal, but […]

WordPress to add PPC ads

WordPress to add PPC ads

Tweet People who use the WordPress blogging platform have been complaining for years that WordPress hosting doesn’t allow you to have ads on your blog. Now, if you got your own hosting, you can do whatever you want. But if you’re hosted on WordPress, you can’t have ads. But, that is be changing. WordPress has partnered with Federated Media to allow blogs to have PPC advertisements on them. You still have to meet preset requirements, but the fact that you’ll be able to have ads at all is a big step. Jon Burke, from WordPress, explains it on his blog: […]

How to add the Google +1 button to your site

How to add the Google +1 button to your site

Tweet So, by now you’ve heard about Google+ and the +1 button that shows up next to Google search results. This is obviously a way of “liking” a certain search result, and it’s there to help others make better clicking choices (that’s really not worded properly, but you get the gist). If you see that some of your friends really liked a certain search result, it might help steer you in the right direction. But, you can also add the +1 button right on your site so people can “plus” it there. But how do you do it? Well, you […]

WordPress 3.1.2 is out

WordPress 3.1.2 is out

Tweet Am I the only one that gets excited when new WordPress updates are released? Even when it’s something as simple as a security fix and doesn’t even offer cool new features? Yeah, I know, I’m a dork. But yeah, WordPress 3.1.2 has been released and yes, it’s security based. No new cool features for us. But it does fix the problem in 3.1.1 where apparently contributor-level users could post content. I can see how that’s a problem. Everyone is encouraged to make the update as soon as possible. So get on that.

Upgrade to WordPress 3.0.4

Tweet There is a new version of WordPress available and it’s pretty important that you go out and upgrade. The new version, 3.0.4, has a security update to fix a bug in the previous versions. Apparently, there was a flaw in KSES, which is used in “lots of places” according to WordPress chief Matt Mullenweg. You used to be able to hack into different parts of WordPress sites if you just changed a few letters from lowercase to uppercase. You’d also have to be quite a jerk and have time on your hands. So, now the security fix is out […]
