Just curious, but we are told that the best way to safeguard one's site is to back it up regularly, which I agree.However, let's say your site has been hacked and you don't realize this.In the meantime, you do a complete backup.Once the offending files are removed, through SiteSupport, or you do it some other way, won't restoring your backed-up files also bring down the original problem back to your site?In such cases, how can you get rid of the offending files?I was just thinking...James

For those of you who are using the WP GDPR compliance plugin, please make sure that you have updated to the latest version, namely 1.4.3.Any versions prior to this latest update leave your sites wide open to attacks, with disastrous results.This vulnerability seems to only be present for those running WordPress sites, like we use here, so if you haven't already upgraded, please do so at your very earliest.The problem is quite an issue, so much so, that this plugin was actually removed from the

Is it me, my eyes, or is my computer going crazy?It seems like many of the pictures on people's profiles have gone blank, and are only showing an outline line...Has anybody else experienced this?James

Does anybody know if RSS feeds are still popular?Quite a bit of the information I've found seems to be from a couple of years back, which gives me the impression that RSS isn't as hot as it used to be, but I could be wrong.Can anybody update me on this, please?Many thanks in advance.James

Hello WA..Could you, very briefly, even with a word or two, or just write the number, let me know the reasons why you joined WA? 1. Was it to make money online? 2. Or was it to learn about building websites, and then make money online? 3. Is it a case that you're fed up of your 9 - 5 job and want something different? 4.

Like many of you just starting out here, and thinking things will be a piece of cake, well, the truth of the matter isn’t exactly like that.

I read so much about success stories that I thought it was about time I had my fair share, and the sky was the limit, or so I thought. The signing-up process with Amazon was a long and complicated one, but after several attempts, I managed to boast that I
