I agree! Keeping you site's software updated is the first defense in security.

I've rescued about 6 sites this year after they were hacked and in all cases, it was because software was not kept updated.
 
We get asked this question a lot -- In case you were wondering, here's why you should always use the latest version of WordPress.
Wondering why everyone keeps recommending installing WordPress updates? Learn why you should always use the latest version of WordPress (Pros and Cons).

I found the site helpful for passing along basic info to clients. Why re-invent the wheel? :)

How Google Works, in 5 Minutes. by John Hargrave, 07/10/2015. Years ago, I went to this local marketing meetup, and they had a guy from Google as the featured speaker. This was back when Google was a little more open about how their algorithm worked, and the Google employee said something that ...

Good to know you can remove the IP restriction if your own IP address changes.

WordPress is an excellent content management system. If you stay on top of updates (and use strong and secure passwords), your site will be in great shape, security-wise.

~~~

"Most content management systems are actually incredibly safe, and the core installation of WordPress is among the most secure on the web."

"At the end of the day, they [site insecurities] can all be linked back to insecure practices on the part of either a plugin developer or the end user – not the platform."

There’s a perception among SMBs that security on WordPress is a non-issue. That needs to change. They’re putting themselves at risk – …

As good a day as any to share this unbelievably amazing architecture.

WP Media Cleaner

Do you have a WordPress site and want to trim down on the bulk of your site files but don't want to have to look through your uploads folder with a fine-toothed comb? Give WP Media Cleaner a try.

It searches through your uploads folder, finds files that aren't used. You can review and put the images in the trash (a temporary spot the plugin creates so you can test before actually deleting the files from the server.)

This plugin, paired with Broken Link Checker is absolute gold for cleaning things up.

Help you cleaning your Uploads Directory and your Media Library.

This code wonderful, thank you, WPRecipies!

Most WordPress users are using custom fields to display thumbs on their blog homepage. It is a good idea, but do you know that with a simple php function, you can grab the first image from the post, and display it. Just read on.

WordPress: If you're not using the TwentyFifteen theme, delete it. If you are using it, be sure to update it!

#wordpress   #vulnerability  
A XSS vulnerability affects Jetpack and Twentyfifteen, both installed by default in millions of WordPress installs, caused by a flaw in the genericons package.

Introduction
NOTE: My "WordPress Tips" was on hold for a bit but is starting up again (slowly).

If you use WordPress for your website and would like to receive WordPress Tips to help you grow, learn and gain new ideas for the evolution of your site, drop me a line here in Google+ so I can put you in that exclusive sharing circle for occasional notifications. (Once a month - or less.) If you prefer not to receive notification, please let me know & I'll remove you from that circle. No judgement! Even if you're not in that circle, you may still see my WordPress related posts as I've decided to post them publicly from now on. (Thanks to a recommendation from +Terrence Lui.)

I help empower individuals and small businesses to take command of their web presence by employing a content management system* for client's websites which makes updating and maintaining their sites easy. 

I also enjoy teaching clients so they are comfortable making updates themselves.



* I use WordPress, an open source software and install it onto your own hosting account. (Not WordPress.com)

My husband and I have been going here for a number of years (7-8 years?) now and enjoy the food at Ming Bao. We have recently been enjoying the ability to try different combinations that aren't even on the menu. They're pleasant and very receptive to our crazy requests and always seem to do a very good job.

A nice quiet (small) place to meet friends & get tasty food. Pleasant and relatively quick service. Their sign out front was down when I first went here so it was hard to find. If you're not familiar with where they are, you may want to find it on Google maps and get a visual on the outside of the building. *Bonus:* I see they have the inside photographed on Google maps, so you can see what the place looks like on the inside as well before you go.

The "Please wait to be served" sign was off to the side, unseen by us when we entered, so we went to find a table and were scolded to wait to be seated. We walked back to the front door and they showed us to a small table that abutted the back of a booth which was fine until a party of 3 sat down and the back of a man's head was in my husband's face. Thankfully we could move to the next small table over, but between that, the static/tinny radio playing loudly from the speakers above, our breakfast sandwiches couldn't come soon enough. We waited for about 25 minutes to get the sandwiches. *They tasted good but not worth the wait or the loud surroundings.* I guess it would be OK if you have kids and you're used to having to be around loud kids and loud radio, but it wasn't for me. I won't be back. I tried this twice and both times were not enjoyable.
