Hackers Are Using Automated Scans to Target Unfinished WordPress Installs

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/hackers-are-using-automated-scans-to-target-unfinished-wordpress-installs/Experts from security firm Wordfence say they have observed a wave of web attacks that took aim at unfinished WordPress installations.

These are sites where a user had uploaded the WordPress CMS, started but never finished the installation process.

These sites remained open to external connections, and anyone could have accessed their install panel and complete the installation on behalf of the user.

According to Wordfence, this is exactly what happened. For almost a month, starting with the end of May and through mid-June, an attacker had mass-scanned the Internet for WordPress installations that still featured their installation file. Read original article here…. bleepingcomputer.com

Let’s Encrypt Passes 100 Million Certificates Issued, Will Offer Wildcard Certificates in January 2018

https://wptavern.com/lets-encrypt-passes-100-million-certificates-issued-will-offer-wildcard-certificates-in-january-2018Let’s Encrypt, the free and open certificate authority that launched in 2016, has issued more than 100 million certificates as of June 2017 and is currently securing 47 million domains. Earlier this year, the web passed a major milestone of getting more than 50% of traffic encrypted. Let’s Encrypt has been a major contributor to that percentage growing to nearly 58%.

“When Let’s Encrypt’s service first became available, less than 40% of page loads on the Web used HTTPS,” ISRG Executive Director Josh Aas said. “It took the Web 20 years to get to that point. In the 19 months since we launched, encrypted page loads have gone up by 18%, to nearly 58%. That’s an incredible rate of change for the Web.” Read original article here…. wptavern.com

Configuring WordPress to Always Use HTTPS/SSL

This post will walk you through obtaining an SSL certificate (Let’s Encrypt or Other Providers), installing it on your web server (Let’s Encrypt or Other Providers), setting up your WordPress site to use HTTPS URLs, and fixing any “mixed content” type errors that come up when a page served over HTTPS links to non-HTTPS content.

7 Tips to Improve WordPress Security

https://www.codementor.io/codementorteam/tutorials/tips-to-improve-wordpress-security-xep9sr558You just spent many days and sleepless nights to make a blog on WordPress or simply a WordPress website. Now that it is up and running, you are on cloud nine. What if, without a moment’s notice, it goes down due to a security loophole and you are left clueless. This is some nightmarish stuff, but fret not. Here is our detailed guide to help you cover some security patch for your WordPress website so that you have lesser things to take care of. However, you must accept the fact that maintain your WordPress website’s security is an ongoing job and will require you to get back at regular intervals to introduce new changes and make necessary fixes over time. So, let’s begin.

If you are new to the realm of WordPress, keep this glued to the back of your head that never use “Admin” as a username for any of your WordPress websites. You might consider this a smart choice, but hackers know this. Choose a unique username with capital letters along with special characters. Also, you can consider adding a new user providing it with administration privileges. This will be indeed a nice move to make. Read original article here…. codementor.io

WordPress Needs a Good Alternative to WooCommerce

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxPL2D9_ewMRead original article here…. youtube.com

6 Best WooCommerce Alternatives for WordPress

https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/woocommerce-alternatives/One of my favorite things about WordPress is when you find a reliable theme or plugin developer, and then you realize that the search for high-quality website-building tools is over. The only thing I worry about with these sorts of WordPress relationships, however, is that you never really know who you’re dealing with. Or how truly reliable they’ll be in the long run.

So, totally hypothetical situation here: let’s say you put all your eggs into one eCommerce plugin basket. Then you hear through the grapevine that the plugin developer changed their pricing model without notifying customers. You’re pretty sure you can’t reasonably afford that jump in price, but you feel stuck with the plugin because it’s the one you built your online store with. What are you supposed to do? Start all over again? Read original article here…. premium.wpmudev.org

Hey WordPress Companies – Don’t Forget About Your Customers

There are so many new companies fighting for a piece of the WordPress pie.

One way to look at it is that the WordPress market is much more competitive today than it was just a few years ago. Others would argue that the market has become saturated.

8 reasons not to use website builders

https://www.besttechie.com/reasons-not-to-use-website-builders/Website builders, such as those offered by GoDaddy and Wix, promise easy-to-use website creators that will have your website up and going in virtually no time at all. Remember the old saying, that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is? It applies to website builders, too. While it may be easy for anyone to create a website with them, it won’t be a fantastic website that will get your business noticed on the internet, and there are many reasons not to use them.

When website builders say that you can create a website, they really mean that you can create one web page. Custom, professionally-designed websites have multiple pages, and this is very important when it comes to search engines indexing your website. Having a single page means that there is only one page of content that can be crawled by search engines, which hurts your chances for your website to rank well with quality content.

6 Essential WordPress Plugins for Solopreneurs

https://www.sitepoint.com/essential-wordpress-plugins-for-solopreneurs/Much like a single parent doing all the cooking, cleaning, and parenting, a solopreneur must be all things to their business. They must be tech oriented and able to throw together a good looking and functional website. They must be the sole salesperson and one person marketing team. They are often the accountant, shipping clerk, customer service associate, and pretty much any other role you can think of. That’s a lot of hats and a ton of pressure on your shoulders. But if it were easy, everyone would be doing it, right? Read original article here…. sitepoint.com

Optimize Product Shots While Speeding Up Your WordPress Online Store

https://bobwp.com/imagify-your-product-shots-on-your-wordpress-online-store/In the past I have tried various image compression services because we use lot of photos and screenshots here on our site. I have always tried to optimize my images before I uploaded them, but still, I knew some of them could have benefited from further optimization, especially after performing a load speed test. This is also true for many online shop owners. In fact, they may have a store full of images in need of optimizing.

In a recent podcast, I chatted with Jason from WPEngine about tuning up your eCommerce site, and we talked about images. In a nutshell, as an online store, both the quality and the size of the image are critical. Quality is obvious. A good shot can make a difference between a sale or not. And image size is also critical when it comes to the speed of your site. We all know that a fast-loading site is a good site. Read original article here…. bobwp.com

rel=canonical: the ultimate guide to canonical URLs • Yoast

https://yoast.com/rel-canonical/#utm_source=social&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=postA canonical URL allows you to tell search engines that certain similar URLs are actually one and the same. Sometimes you have products or content that is accessible under multiple URLs, or even on multiple websites. Using a canonical URL (an HTML link tag with attribute rel=canonical) these can exist without harming your rankings.

The idea is simple: if you have several similar versions of the same content, you pick one “canonical” version and point the search engines at that. This solves the duplicate content problem where search engines don’t know which version of the content to show. This article takes you through the use cases and the anti-use cases.

Should You Ever Break the Rules When Searching For a New Domain

https://bobwp.com/when-you-break-the-rules-when-searching-for-a-new-domain-name/So, you’re ready to choose a domain for your new and upcoming website. You want to do it right, and not fall down the rabbit hole during a domain name search, spending countless hours finding the perfect one.

Finding the right domain name is an art. At the time of this post, there was over 1.1 billion websites, so with that number you can imagine how many domains are out there. What this means is the options you may want are clearly harder to find (unless you purchase the domain from its current owner). So it requires a little creativity. Read original article here…. bobwp.com

permalinks – Removing the redirect after changing a page’s slug – WordPress Development Stack Exchange

http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/183598/removing-the-redirect-after-changing-a-pages-slugWordPress has done it’s thing of redirecting http://example.com/old-slug to http://example.com/new-slug.

I’d like to remove this behaviour as a plugin I am using makes use of the slug in question and the redirect overrides its behaviour.

I checked this question, and checked my wp_postmeta table for instances of _wp_old_slug but nothing is returned. My server is Nginx so shouldn’t be affected by .htaccess files. Read original article here…. wordpress.stackexchange.com

WordPress: Protect your website from cyber criminals

http://theusbport.com/wordpress-protect-your-website-from-cyber-criminals/28243WordPress is one of the most widely used platforms for hosting and site building in the world. Developers of the WordPress team do their best in rolling out monthly updates to keep sites secure, but admins can always tune their settings and install additional plugins to bolster security.

With cyber-attacks on the rise, it is always advised to use every security measure at our disposal that we consider can make us be safer. Regular maintenance, of course, is also something that should always be kept in mind and be automated if possible. Read original article here…. theusbport.com

How I Use Fiverr to Grow My WordPress Business

https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/grow-wordpress-business-fiverr/?imob=c&utm_expid=3606929-106.UePdqd0XSL687behGg-9FA.2It’s crucial that you explore as many avenues as possible for finding clients when you’re starting out as a web developer. Platforms like Upwork can be a great place to start building your portfolio of work and list of clientele. Then there’s Fiverr, a platform that is often overlooked.

Why is Fiverr overlooked? Because most people can’t get past the fact that the initial pricing point is $5. When you put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into your work, $5 just isn’t work the effort, right? But with some clever strategy on your part, you can use Fiverr to grow your WordPress business, perhaps at an even faster rate than you would with Upwork.

And how do I know all this? I use Fiverr myself as part of my own digital marketing business strategy. Read original article here…. premium.wpmudev.org

How Do You Educate People New to WordPress?

https://wptavern.com/how-do-you-educate-people-new-to-wordpressWhen a friend of mine asked for suggestions on what he should use to create a new site, I suggested WordPress. It is well supported, has an amazing community, and a ton of free themes and plugins to choose from. After getting WordPress installed on a new webhosting account, I left him be to see what issues he would run into and how he would configure the site.

After noticing the site was loading slowly three weeks later, I obtained admin access to try to determine what the problem was. The first thing I did was check which plugins he installed. One of the plugins added the ability to embed YouTube videos on the site using shortcodes. My friend was unaware that WordPress has oEmbed support which allows users to easily embed videos by pasting the URL into the editor. Read original article here…. wptavern.com
