Most of the time, the problem with WordPress and security isn’t going to be themes or plugins, it’s actually how you configure your WordPress install:
- Keep your WP core up to date
- Secure login and password (never use “admin” as username or login)
- Changing Authentication Unique Keys and Salts in wp-config.php
- Unique database prefixes (avoid “wp_”)
- Use of permalink structure
Also a very secure database password is strongly recommended.
Another thing: a lot of people will name their database “wordpress”, choose another database name.
Issues may also come from non-reliable and non-secure web hosting company servers (cheap ones).
Here is a post on wptuts that may be useful. There is few steps in this post to help you to secure your wordpress installation.
You will also find a lot of plugin to improve your security.
This post is not a complete wordpress security guide but only a few tips to help you to get started.
Hope your summer went well! I was a little bit less active on the support forum as everything was pretty much slow this past weeks.
No worries, back to work! And I come up with news!
Important plugin update
I guess update the plugins manually was a pain in the a**, but I have a good news for you:
From now on, all plugins will behave just like any WP plugins from wordpress.org
Important Notice: Themeforest has updated the theme submission requirements.
In short, custom post types and shortcodes won’t be allowed in themes very soon.
No worries, basically it means that I will publish a lot of free plugins soon!
Here is a list of plugin that I’m planning to release : Tour dates, Ajax Contact Form, Discography and many other
So my future theme will be pure WordPress designs.
All custom features and shortcodes will be available through plugins.
Just enjoyed a nice trip in Roma. Back to work!
Twitter has updated the API to version 1.1, so as the twitter plugin. Be sure to update here!
