How to include. Simply include jquery.flip.js on your page. jQuery Flip has a dependency on jQuery so make sure to include that first. From CDN. Use both jQuery and jQuery Flip directly from CDN. No need to download anything:

How to Secure a WordPress Website

To secure your WordPress website from hackers and avoid website vulnerabilities, WordPress files needs special attention while installation. Preventing Directory Listing using .htaccess file, regular changing of your WordPress password or restrict direct access of WordPress core files are small but very important aspects for security of a WordPress website. We have discussed about the ways by which your WordPress Site poses security threats in the post How to Hack WordPress Site using SQL Injection  with a clean intention to warn you from the vulnerabilities of being unaware of the hacking techniques.

However it will be better if we know how to secure your wordpress website from such attacks. I am thus listing here a few precautionary measures to help you be more vigilant and keep your WordPress Website safe.

14 steps to secure a website

#1 Keep Strong Password
#2 “admin” Username is Not Safe
#3 Change Database Prefixes
#4 Block Suspicious IPs
#5 Limit Login Attempts
#6 Keep WordPress Updated
#7 Secure .htaccess and config.php Files
#8 Prevent Directory Listing using .htaccess
#9 Hide WordPress Version
#10 Modify Default Secret Keys in wp-config.php File
#11 Change File Permissions
#12 Disable File Editing
#13 Protect wp-includes Directory
#14 Backup WordPress Files and Database 

#1 Keep your WordPress Password Strong

Lets start with the easiest strategy which most of us know but still neglect, to keep the passwords really strong and thus difficult to crack. It is a general tendency to keep passwords that are easy to remember like your name or phone no. or date of birth but that can be the biggest gateway for hackers for entering into your site. A good password must at least be of eight characters both upper and lower case including numbers, and special symbols. You can easily check the complexity of your password here and know how safe is your password and keep secure your WordPress website.

Honestly, probably better off getting your own server to send that stuff out if you'e going long term with it. I've used a company called Solutions By Text for more complicated setups as far as different lists etc.. Via SOAP you access their API and can create a REST service to even go so far as two-way texting through the service. They also allow a safety net of keeping their own internal list of STOP messages from numbers so you don't get in to legal trouble by continuing to text numbers that have not opted in or requested STOP.
