Listener Feedback
Email Comment from Hardeep

I’m a teenage WordPress plugin developer from India & a fan of all the WordPress podcasts, including you. I listen to your podcast on my Stitcher (BEST APP EVER!!) every single week, plus Marcus, Sarah & Jeff on WordPress Weekly Podcast.

The reason of sending this email is because I wanted to tell you folks about a new FREE PDF book written by me, which is about WordPress Security.

I was wondering if you guys could take a look at the book to share with your listeners or even just for your own clients. I know that you guys know pretty much about WordPress security & stuff, but there’s always something to learn in everything.

The book is 100% free because I want everyone to learn about SECURITY. Hope you guys can spread the word on how to Improve WordPress Security!

Thanks for your time :)

PS: Marcus, please bring the Industry Night back on WPWeekly :)

[plugin_name src=”limit-login-countries”] Overview:
Ok so you have a website and you don’t need worldwide visitors and only want to limit it or maybe you’re tired of hack attempts from china and Taiwan. It uses Maxmind’s Geolite database and you can run in whitelist or blacklist mode. Be aware that this is not always an accurate way to block but it will help cut down on the crap.

Ok so you have been told that Admin is a really bad user name and maybe you are ready to change to laundryJock to something more professional for a user name. well the one thing WordPress does not have built in but should is an easy way to change your username. There are dozens of tutorials out there that will show you how to do it with phpMyadmin but the easy way is to simply add this plugin and then go to your profile and change it.

Swifty Page Manager – makes creating and managing your pages easy.

As you might have noticed, managing the pages of your WordPress site isn’t very intuitive out of the box. We found a way to make it a whole lot easier. Here’s how…

Reasons to try Swifty Page Manager:

It shows you how the pages of your WordPress site are positioned and related to each other in a so called page tree view.
It alows you to manage the page settings (such as name, status etc.) in a very intuitive way.

“Building admin widgets gives us the opportunity to let designers take a stab at changing the administratoin interface. With such a large community the admin changes could have a lot more potential if we give designers and average users the ability to truely customize their entire site.

This plugin also adds a shortcode ‘user’ which lets you show and hide text in the welcome panel and thoughout your installation to different roles and capabilities. For example, you can add a text widget to the dashboard welcome panel widget like this:

[user capability=””delete_posts””] This is only shown to users that have delete posts capability [/user] [user capability=””editor””] This is only shown to users that have editor capability [/user]”
