Gabfire Releases “Quickstart” Theme For Free Download

Written by Bec on May 24, 2014 – 1:52 PM -

If you are still looking around for an awesome professional theme, then check out Gabfire’s “QuickStart”. It has just been released as a free download on WordPress.org

Gabfire's Quickstart Theme

Quickstart WordPress Theme


From the Gabfire Design Team:

“We love WordPress. It’s enabled us to build beautiful websites, assemble a stellar team, and create a wonderful community around us. We are so grateful for everything that we’ve been able to achieve that we wanted to give back to the WordPress community. Through meticulous effort, we’ve re-coded – QuickStart – a free Gabfire theme to fit WordPress.org standards so that it can be shared openly on the WordPress theme directory!

We’ve updated the code for reliability, but kept the classic design. In order for us to launch our theme on the WordPress directory, we needed our theme to fit certain requirements for WordPress.com blogs as well. We had to remove TimThumb and adjust a few other internal functions in order to meet the requirements, but our theme is still 100% Gabfire quality. We’ve added FontAwesome so you can include any of their 439 icons in your posts and text widgets. We’ve added the Big Picture Post Template that many other Gabfire Themes have so you can showcase your high-res photos.”

Bulk Delete Inactive and Bot Subscribers

Written by Bec on April 3, 2014 – 12:36 PM -

Wordpress I just had to clean out several thousand bot “subscribers” on a client’s blog and after doing the first 5 or so pages of a check and then bulk delete and then confirming routine I decided it was a good time to do a search for an easier way to really bulk delete them.

A quick trip to Google and I was able to find “Bulk Delete“, a plugin on the WordPress site that did what I needed it to do. Reading over the description this Bulk Delete plugin can manage a lot of other tedious maintenance tasks as well.

Bulk Delete is a WordPress plugin which can be used to delete posts in bulk from selected categories, tags, post types or custom taxonomies. This plugin can also delete all drafts, post revisions, scheduled posts or pages and users based on user role.

If you are looking for an easy method of moving posts, instead of deleting them, then use Bulk Move Plugin instead.

Testing The Appearance Of Your Site For Mobile Devices

Written by Bec on March 24, 2014 – 2:21 PM -

mobile-devicesMost of us probably didn’t give much thought about how our sites would look in mobile devices when we first created them, but as more and more people turn to ipads, smartphones, gaming devices, tablets, androids and the like, we’re going to have to adapt or get out of the way.

While users of some of the older smartphones may be forgiving if things don’t look right, anyone using state of the art electronic devices won’t be. So how do you test your site?

First and foremost, be sure your site is HTML5 compliant, and then do cross-browser checks. Once that’s done the best way would be to actually view the site on the various mobile devices, including tablets and gaming devices, not just various smartphones. While you, your friends and family are going to have some of the various devices around for you to use for testing purposes, you’re probably not going to find all of them. Short of camping out at the electronics counter at places that sell mobile devices there are some free online tools that you can use.

The mobiReady Page Test checks to see how well your site does according to the W3C Mobile Web Best Practices, and breaks it down as to a number of pass/fail/ warnings for various design and development issues. There is an Android emulator called Android SDK at Android.com. You will have to download it and install it on your computer, then you can see what visitors using an Android device will see when visiting your site. Both mobiReady and Android Emulator are Free.

Keynote Device Simulator DeviceAnywhere Free is an easy-to-use on-demand tool for a quick test of your mobile web content on real mobile devices—from anywhere—at any time. DeviceAnywhere Free allows you to interact remotely with real live mobile devices in real time so you can see exactly how your website content looks and acts across a range of different mobile devices. This is the only service of its kind, providing access to real devices over the Internet. Unlike other free services, these are real mobile devices, so you can quickly see how your mobile website will render across a variety of popular smartphones. DeviceAnywhere Free is a no-cost, online service. No hidden charges. No credit cards. No contracts. No catches. You get an unlimited number of 10-minute sessions on any available device—from anywhere, any time! Time’s up? Switch devices and start again. Price: Free

Here are more sites I found on Practical Ecommerce that are Mobile Emulators:

Screenfly. Screenfly allows you to view your website on a variety of device screens and resolutions. Enter a URL and click on GO to get started. Price: Free.

GoMoMeter. GoMoMeter, by Google, shows you how your current site looks on a smartphone. The site provides a free report with personalized recommendations on how your business can build a more mobile-friendly website. Price: Free.

iPhone Tester. This iPhone emulator allows you to check your site in the dimensions for iPhone 3G and 4G, and iPod Touch. Just enter the URL of the site you want to test in the address bar. Price: Free.

iPad Peek. Check to see how your website looks on the iPad or iPhone. For an accurate simulation, use a WebKit-based browser, such as Apple Safari or Google Chrome. Price: Free.

Mobile Phone Emulator. This emulator enables you to see your site on a variety of mobile phones, including iPhone, HTC, LG, BlackBerry, and Samsung. Price: Free.

Also, keep in mind Flash doesn’t work on iPhones and iPads, so be sure to swap out any of your affiliate flash banners and bring in .jpg or .gif files instead.

Arrggh! My Site Has Been Hacked!

Written by Bec on February 1, 2014 – 2:38 PM -

Why me?” you ask – because they can. I’m just now recovering from a bot hack that infected EVERY site on my server, not just the blogs. As one of the host techs explained: bots look for vulnerabilities to exploit, and once they get hold of an isp with vulnerable files, they insert malicious code that launches more bots to search for more sites/isp’s to infect. Once they have control of your machine, it’s used along with other compromised systems for all sorts of evil cyber manipulations, such as sending out thousands of spam emails or using your system for DDOS attacks against sites that bring them down, or compromise them in some manner.

Where you are using WordPress there is a tighter ftp permission strategy your host can put into place that still lets you use a program like InfiniteWP to manage all of your blogs from one login location and/or do your upgrades from the admin panel and is more secure than any other method. Just ask your host to set permissions that “make the files writable by the web user“. A single location to do your upgrades from will let you keep WordPress, plugins and themes current, which is a major, and necessary, method of keeping your site secure!

The other thing my host has done is setup a security popup that requires a user name and password before it even lets you get to the actual wp-login.php page. It’s a global popup that works for all of the blogs on the server so any bot sniffing out your admin login has to get past that popup login first.

The other security measures I’m doing include installing this Plugin: Wordfence … crazy a** simple to configure, doesn’t get heavy handed with your system, and emails you immediately if: a file changes, someone attempts to use the admin login, and a host of other potential attack scenarios that you can tell it to throttle or ban and for how long if such and such occurs. It also hides your WordPress version, which is something hack bots search for in order to exploit outdated cms versions. Wordfence also “learns” from other WordPress sites if there is an attack, and automatically blocks a known attack method to any site, anywhere in the world that is using Wordfence automatically. Check out the video on their site to learn more of what it does to secure your WordPress sites.

It can also scan your theme and plugins (just check mark them under Wordfence – Options). Both InfiniteWP and Wordfence plugins are free, upgrades are an optional purchase, and so far I haven’t found anything that I have needed that would require me buying any addons.

Another way to check ALL of the themes you have under wp-content/themes for malicious code is to install Theme Authenticity Checker (tac). Once it’s activated, go to your Appearances and click tac and it will take a few seconds to compare your files to the originals at WordPress. It then tells you if it has found added code and on what file. Some may be OK, as in you edited your theme on the actual .php files, but more often than not, it returns base code 64 hacks and a cleanup is in your immediate future. And for Plugins there is this free WordPress security plugin checker.

And I can not stress this enough – DO NOT go to “free theme” websites and install a theme without using the Theme Authenticity Checker plugin on it to ensure it’s clean! TAC will check every theme under the themes folder, it does not have to be an active them to have it scanned. Best bet is to buy a legit pro theme, or find a theme on WordPress that works with the latest WP versions.

Just some tips:

1. Record Keeping – Keep a folder on your hard drive named for each of your domains. Open notepad or Word, put your email address and password and your admin user name and password, and then save it to the folder. Within each folder download your .htaccess, wp-config.php, and the themes folder for that site immediately after you have the site setup the way you want it. Also keep a zipped copy of the original, unedited theme, in that folder. If you make theme page changes, re-download the freshly edited page(s) to the themes folder so it stays current.

2. Backups – Keep at least two backups of your site in the folder at all times, or perhaps create a special email addy to have backup emails sent to on a regular basis. I like to schedule a backup weekly and have it emailed to me. If a backup becomes necessary, you can go with whatever is most recent, the one you made, or the one your host made. I use the WP-DB-Backup plugin, but there are a number of different ones available, and all for free. Just search for new backup plugins inside your admin panel or at WordPress.org. And yes, it takes a couple minutes to move the backup to your hard drive, but trust me on this, it will take a whole lot more of your time to restore and cleanup a slew of hacked sites. AND/OR… use InfiniteWP and do your backups within it.

3. Secure CHMOD Settings – After a site is setup and your theme and plugins are installed go through the root files, the root directories, and the wp-content/theme and plugins folders and make sure you have returned all 777 chmoded files back to their original chmod setting. Making theme edits in the Admin is fine, so is backing up your site to your server using WP-DB-Backup, or setting the permalinks status for the htaccess … just chmod to 777 for the 30 seconds you need to do them and then immediately re-chmod via ftp.

4. 777 Is A Security Risk – I no longer use ANY plugin or theme that requires a file or directory be always left open and writable using a 777 CHMOD setting … look for a different plugin or theme that doesn’t have this security breach built in from the get-go. Your host can also set your site to work with 775 chmod instead of 777. Just ask them and then change any file or folder that has 777 to 775 via ftp. This has to be done on a per site basis.

5. Use Strong Passwords! – Go right now and change all of your admin logins to NOT use admin. Create a new administrative login using something other than admin, and then create or generate a password that isn’t your birthday or the dog’s name!

Just go to Users, create a new administrator name and password, give it administrator status (*important*), save it and then log out. Now log back in with the new user and password and go back to Users and delete the old admin. Be sure to assign all posts to the new admin name! Once that is complete, open Wordfence Options and select where it says you want it to ban anyone trying to create the default “admin” user name.

6. Cleanup old scripts & databases. If you aren’t using a script, delete it and the database it rode in on! I prefer to have my host do this, and it takes only a couple of minutes for them to make this happen when I provide the database name in my support ticket. (which is on the wp-config.php file you saved to the domain name folder – remember?)

7. More Spring Cleaning – Remove unused plugins and themes and get those non-renewed or sold domains, databases and content removed from your server. This includes deleting the default themes WordPress installs if you are not using them!

Why? you may ask. I was wondering if there was a problem with unused files so I asked my host to get clarification. Response: “Say you’ve cleaned up your blog or website, but didn’t delete the unused files. If the hacker knows he has injected code into an unused plugin or theme on your site, he can tell it to activate and start the hack process all over again.” Enough said!

I can’t promise your sites are now perfectly secure, but I know I’m sleeping much better now that I have these safeguards in place!

~~ Happy Blogging!

Update: I’d like to share this article Malware Removal Checklist for WordPress as it contains even more things to look for, to secure your sites than what I’ve already posted.

Manage Multiple WordPress Sites From One Location

Written by Bec on December 11, 2013 – 3:14 AM -

If you run multiple WordPress blogs on multiple domain urls, or manage multiple sites for clients, then I don’t have to tell you what a major headache it is to be constantly trying to keep them upgraded and secure. The security hacks that happen with older WP installations has certainly brought my server to its knees on more than one occasion. What the hacker does is to search for blogs that have NOT updated as they know that those blogs are still wide open to perform their evil deeds. In short, the quicker that you are able to upgrade to the latest versions, the less chance you have of being hacked.

And if you think that it wouldn’t happen to you, do a search on Google for Hacked WordPress Blog and you will see over 2 and a half million reports of other people having had it happen to them. It was just such a situation where malicious code had been injected into my sites that prompted me to start looking again for a program that would allow me to manage all of my WordPress sites from one location.

Some years ago, when I was running over 15 WP blogs, (now over 80) I knew I wanted to be able to bulk upgrade the WordPress CMS as well as any plugins and themes. I wanted to setup auto backups, track and view Google stats, manage users, spam, comments, settings, add posts, edit posts, clone sites, manage media … Yes, I wanted every feature I have on my individual blog Admin panel available as a bulk website management feature so that I no longer had to login to every website to perform all of the maintenance they require. It was taking up too much of my time … time that would be better spent in expanding my multi site empire!

Unfortunately no one had written a comparable, centrally located, WordPress management admin panel system program or plugin yet, but all of that has changed! Now there are several WordPress Management Software solutions and I’ll give a brief overview of the ones I’ve found.

First I’ll discuss the programs that require you to signup and login to their website to use/lease the software. While trials are available for free, most free options after the trial become limited and you’ll need to pay a monthly fee based on the number of websites you manage.

1. CMS COMMANDER

CMS Commander has every tool you could possibly want, and some you probably didn’t know you wanted. Besides WordPress, CMS Commander enables you to bulk manage your WordPress sites, as well as your Joomla, Drupal, and phpBB websites. You can manage comments, clone sites, create new users, install one-click updates of WordPress, plugins and themes, and compare Google Analytics stats across all of your blogs. CMS Commander also has several advertising options, legal API content sources, SEO tools, the ability to import PLR articles and manage the popular WP Robot plugin. And of course it lets you setup the basics: create and schedule posts and do backups of all your WordPress websites. CMS Commander also includes content generation tools and auto-posting features. Price: Plans start at $4.95 per month for up to five websites. There is a 30 day free trial with all features functional, and if you opt to just use the free option thereafter it will have some of the bulk features locked.

2. WP REMOTE

Another program where you login to their site to setup and manage your blogs is WP Remote. WP Remote is free, with additional features in their Premium version which starts at $5 for one site and up to $149 for 50.

5. WP Pipeline

You can also deactivate plugins or themes in the same way. This works the same way with either single themes or plugins or multiple themes and plugins. If you want to create a new blog with a particular set up, then you can do this from the main dashboard in just a few clicks. You are able to create and save multiple profiles which are based on blogs that you already have. This is particularly powerful if you want to set up a large number of blogs with the same setup. WP Pipeline is a download that you install. Price is based on the number of sites you want to use with it. Basic 5 site license is $27. Standard for up to 100 sites is $67, and Pro is for unlimited sites at $147.

6. WP MultiNetwork Management Plugin

Want a centralized management system for WordPress Multisites (now known as MultiNetwork)? WP Multi Network is a plugin that adds a network management user interface for super admins in a WordPress multisite environment. Turn your multisite installation of WordPress into many multisite networks, all surrounding one central user base. With WP MultiNetwork you can create new networks of sites, allowing for many site, network, and domain arrangements. Price: Free

7. Infinite WP

InfiniteWP allows you to manage multiple WordPress sites with single master login and features one-click updating as well as management tools for your plugins and themes. It also has instant backup and restore capabilities. The basic features of InfiniteWP are free, but expanded features are available for purchase. There are currently 12 available add-on modules that start at $49. At the time of this post the site is offering 10% and up to a 30% discount. InfiniteWP is a software download that you install on your own server, so you own the program and any modules you may decide to purchase.

The Infinite WP is the program I am currently testing for my own web blog management. I’ll let you know how I like it, and what, if any, additional modules I felt were needed.

WordPress 3.5 “Elvin” Launches

Written by Bec on December 11, 2012 – 7:22 PM -

wordpress  WordPress just launched version 3.5 of its self-hosted blogging and CMS platform. This new version, called “Elvin” in honor of drummer Elvin Jones, mostly changes how WordPress users interact with images and includes a number of smaller tweaks to various other parts of the application, too.

The first thing you will notice after the update is the new image uploader. WordPress says working with the new image management system is “a beautifully simple experience.” In the announcement, WordPress and Automattic founder Matt Mullenweg says that “media has long been a friction point and we’ve listened hard and given a lot of thought into crafting this new system.”

The reality, however, is that this change takes quite a bit of getting used to. At TechCrunch, the beta testers reported:

we’ve been using the new version for a bit now and even though most of us have gotten used to the new media manager, it often feels like it takes an extra click or two to do basic things like adding featured images to a post.

One thing the new media manager definitely gets right is the new workflow for creating galleries. This used to be a major pain point, but is now significantly easier thanks to drag-and-drop reordering, inline caption editing, and simplified controls.
