This is precisely why self hosted WordPress sites exist and have value. You can't be truly free if you are bound by a corporate terms of service agreement.

Am I the only person who thinks Dennis Cooper should have seen this coming?

+Ljubomir Tesic probably too late for him. However, we can help others avoid the same fate by advocating responsible backup practices to our colleagues.

Hello everybody,

I would like help and advice with A/B test, I've been asked to do one and would like to know what services do you use, recommendations that you make me, and have positive points from one service or another (I'm a bit lost).

Also what data you present on the final report. Which is relevant apart from the conversion rate being tested.

Hi. I sometimes find it hard to explain to new users of #WordPress what a widget is since the term "Widget" can mean anything. I tried to put everything I've got on the table to explain widgets in this post. Would love for your feedback if I missed anything, if I'm completely off or if I'm spot on! If yes, please share! Thanks!

Hi,
I tried to revamp my site uploads folder, I used wget to get all my images and updated the uploads folder. Now all the images are getting displaying in the pages and post but it remains as blank square boxes in my WordPress media gallery.
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks

Perhaps try a plugin like Regenerate Thumbnails to see if that does the trick. https://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

Theme recommendations

Hello all, I'm looking for a free (open-source) theme for an online visual art portfolio. I'm after for something very simple, but I still can't find what I'm looking for. Requirements:

Layout:
- Simple header with only blog tagline and no menus.
- Simple side bar with list of works (titles of all blog posts broken down by category as a itemized list where subcategories can be expanded and widget options.
- Content being a grid of (custom sized) cropped thumbnails, one for each post, using the first image in each post. Roll over to get titles in small text over images. at least a 5x5 grid of posts with an option to change the number of rows.
- Responsive (on small screens only the header and grid will show)

General Features
- Highly customizable from the dashboard
- Single font
- no background (single solid colour)

I'm playing with flatfile and Pictorico, but they are not working the way I expect (I'm not seeing my image posts' content on the front page)

Let me know if you have any suggestions for themes that would not require too much modification.

Thank you all!

+WP-Killer Thanks, but I certainly don't want a "perfect balance" of words and images. Images should be front and centre and text only available with extra effort (roll-over or click on images).

+Palla Sridhar There has never been a default password, and the username admin isn't default anymore for a very long time.

The problem with Jetpack are not the active modules, but the terrible code. Keep in mind that even inactive files are accessible per HTTP request.

robots.txt cannot block anything. It is purely informal, the web server doesn't even read it. File permissions are set in the operating system.

I like that you try to share what you have learned. That's always good. :)

But next time, please verify your facts before you are misguiding your readers accidentally. You missed the most important points, like the ones I mentioned earlier or keeping the software context for WP up to date, and recommended things that will create a false sense of security. This is probably worse than doing nothing and just staying afraid a little bit.

How do theme users prefer to customise their themes? Using the WordPress appearance customiser or a dedicated setting page for that particular theme? Do they find one easier? Is theme customiser supposed to be the standard way?

Fine for a basic theme but the Customiser is a PITA if you have a theme with lots of options. Be aware if you want your theme in the Wordpress repository then it must use the customiser, this is a stupid requirement imho.

Hi everyone,

I have written another article about creating WordPress advertising plugin. This is the last article on this topic. In this tutorial we will create how to create a simple widget and a simple shortcode to display our Ads.

We will also see that both of those are tracking the Ads even though we did not create any new tracking code. The whole plugin can also be downloaded as a .zip

Are you using Ads on WordPress and which plugins are you using for it?

Here is the link to the article: http://www.ibenic.com/simple-wordpress-advertising-plugin-widget-shortcode/
Creating a simple WordPress advertising plugin can be fun and also challenging. In this last part of our tutorial series, we will create a widget and a shortcode that can be used inside posts and pages. This tutorial is a part of a tutorial series “Simple WordPress Advertising Plugin“.

If you're going to use the Wordpress publicize feature, make sure you set your app settings in Google+ to Public or else your posts will be the sound of one hand clapping -- they will only be visible to you. Not a good idea for a default setting! You'll see the posts and be wondering why you're great content is getting 0 plus ones...

A new post on our Sucuri Security Blog today, talking about a new type of phishing: attacking the eCommerce checkout pages/

What is really quite new here is the combination of phishing and infection of legitimate pages. These two used to be separate. Phishers didn't infect legitimate pages, they used emails, fake sites etc.
Now they hijack a legitimate checkout process on legitimate eCommerce sites, making the entire attack even harder to be discovered.

Check your own configs today and do share any findings.

https://blog.sucuri.net/2016/07/phishing-attacks-target-ecommerce-checkout-pages.html
Hackers are attacking WooCommerce and PrestaShop sites by redirecting customers to fake checkout pages on malicious sites using a small Javascript snippet.
