I recently wrote a post here at Wealthy Affiliate and almost immediately became the victim of a cyber bully. Website Backup and Migration (Caution, it's a bit of a Rant)There's over 30 comments by one "new" member, most of which are personal and racial attacks. At first I didn't know who this "new" person was but a friend sent me a private message giving me some irrefutable clues to his identity. A person named Bob had left WA at the same time as this "new" person arrived. And my friend linked

My backup plugin of choice (WP Clone) has not been updated for a long time and has not been tested with the latest version of WordPress.

I've just read a post at Wordfence.com/blog stating that the Captcha plugin has been removed from the WordPress repository because the new plugin owners have inserted a backdoor into the code.Basically they've added stuff to the code which creates an updated version of the plugin with an extra file which allows anyone access to the website.With over 300,000 installs of the plugin this is a serious situation.If you have the Captcha plugin installed on your website then please deactivate and dele

When we're writing a new post it's only natural to want that post to be perfect. So we keep tweaking it and procrastinating trying to reach that elusive state of perfection.Stop doing that to yourself.Apply the 80/20 rule, if it's 80% perfect then in most cases it's good enough. Get it out there so people can read it.Remember published beats perfect every time.
