This donation is on behalf of Earth Anchor Systems, a Jezweb client that has created an innovative way to build garden retaining walls quickly and cheaply: https://www.earthanchorsystems.com.au/

John’s Rant: What to rant about?

Make sure you checkout the WPSupport store. where you can get direct access to some of the best plugins we have reviewed located all in one place. We do not host the plugins but provide the link to download it direct from WordPress.org or the plugin developer, and they may occasionally have an affiliate link but not too often since that adds a whole new layer of work to what I have to do.

For developers who find value in what I am doing here please donate that value back to the show.

Already responsible for more than one million website defacement and attempts to monetize some of those attacks, the flaw also opens the door to a separate attack.
Researchers at Sucuri who found the original bug on Monday disclosed details on how it could be leveraged to pull off a stored cross-site scripting attack.

value ruined by begging    This used to be a good podcast, before the hosts became resentful of the audience who does not donate money. Now a good percentage of the podcast seems to be devoted to ranting and threatening to cancel the thing … and ironically from a consultant on how to run a paid membership site. Sorry … I'm moving on.

The Lowdown:
This plugin allows you to add notes to each plugin so you can know what each plugin is for this is a gret way to be able to keep track of why you installed a plugin since many time the name for the plugin is not real clear on its use.

The Lowdown:
If you are looking for a way to add social share icons to your posts/pages this plugin may help in that task. Although when I went to test it it seems the plugin is incomplete in several areas and has some theme incompatibilities  When I tried on one of my test sites it cause header errors but worked fine on my other test site. All in all not too bad but still a work in progress.

This plugin allows admin and client to communicate when WooCommerce order is completed. A button/link is added against each Order in My Account page to start/see messages. This is in place of email or anything else like Skype. It just captures all the messages and attachments within WooCommerce.

My specialty is helping people help themselves. I get their WordPress website up and running after a catastrophe such as being hacked or a plugin malfunction. My focus is on fixing the problem rather than scrapping the site and rebuilding it from the bottom up. Although this may be tempting to do, the costs associated with this are much more than you may think. The loss of time spent on the site, posts, data and images that may have been forgotten or no longer accessible. With a bit of time I can get your site cleaned up, functioning, and re-establish its presence on the web.
John
