WordPress 3.7 beta 1 – Best searches and automatic updates • WordPress Help

 wordpress 3.7 The first beta of what will be the next major version of WordPress is now ready, in which you can try and enjoy some of the WordPress 3.7 news that we have been announcing

One of the most relevant developments, which we have already been commenting on, is the update in the background which will include the language packages, including those for the default themes , if your installation of WordPress is not in English, something that all of us will appreciate.

Another novelty of WordPress 3.7 is the improvement of the password strength meter now using the Dropbox zxcvbn library which favors the strength of semantic keys in front of those impossible to remember. This is because a key with 4 dictionary words has been shown to be harder to hack than one with all kinds of characters, being also easier for the user to remember.

Also, and perhaps this is the novelty that you most appreciate in your daily use of WordPress, now the search results will take into account the relevance of what you are looking for . In the new algorithm if the keyword you are looking for is in the title it will appear first if it is only in the content of an entry or page.

Massive attack of brute force against thousands of WordPress • WordPress Help

A DDOS brute force attack against thousands of WordPress installations is currently underway. It does not matter if you have updated WordPress because, as we already know, vulnerabilities can come from other places .

In the list, which you can check here and look to see if there are any your site, you will see that there are sites with all kinds of versions, including WordPress 3.7 Alpha, so the possible culprit is not there.

Check your passwords, check your installation looking for any type of script or infection, and scan your computer to look for viruses, keyloggers, rootkits or any intruder. Of course, check that your theme and plugins are updated and free of injected code.

If your site is not yet compromised it's a good idea to force the change of all passwords or even to ask for ID in two steps even requiring access to WordPress with eDNI all caution is little in the face of this type of attacks, which, on the other hand, you can stop them if you are notified in time and take action.

Well, we will continue reporting. Thanks to Pedro for notifying on Facebook of this problem .

Data to reflect on the security of WordPress

 security wordpress admin

The other day I was seeing data and information about security attacks that he had – and has – WordPress and the truth is that some of them were revealing, of those that lead to consider where the problems are really .

Note: this entry contains affiliate links for which the author can charge commissions for each sale.

A graphic that illustrates what I say is the following …

 causes of hacking wordpress

We usually attribute "WordPress" security problems or vulnerabilities, but the reality is quite different, well WordPress is safe .

In this part of an infographic that provides more data, something that we are not always conscious enough rebels about, that most of Successful attacks are the fault of the server where we have hosted WordPress which leads the list of " guilty " with 41%.

They follow him closely, in the list of guilty parties, the issues , with 29% of vulnerabilities and plugins, with 22% .

Far is the element in which we care most often: the strength of passwords. Of course, this does not mean that we should be lax in this matter, because that 8% depends on us and we must not neglect it, but we must not pay attention to the main possible causes of the insecurity of our WordPress and take action.

What measures?

I know you read me and they will sound to you, but it never hurts to remember them, in this case applied to the data:

This is the basics, if you do not meet any point on the list you are already taking .

Different WordPress theme in each entry or page

 of purchases

I found the Holy Grail!

You are no longer limited to the choice of a single WordPress theme, now you can use a different theme for each entry or page the only limit is your blindness to the horror you're about to commit if you keep reading.

I know you've been waiting for this for a while and, by work and grace of WordPress Help – and of course of the developer – you can already define a general theme for your entire web but a different one from the ones you have installed for each and every one of the entries and pages, a different one for each one if you wish .

I mean, I swear it for my bag of Zara do not even think about it, okay?

Come on, that does not go crazy but if you want to use a different theme, or a variation that you use let's say , for a specific page or entry, it occurs to me for the registration page or similar, this is great.

You just have to activate the plugin and its settings page (which you'll find in " Appearance -> Page theme ") define if you add (or not) one more column to the listings of entries and / or pages, you do not have to configure anything else .
 page theme settings

Once activated any of the boxes, or both, in your list of entries and / or pages you will see one more column with the theme you are using, and by clicking on the mini capture you can change there directly the theme for that entry or page .

You click on the theme you will use and on the button " Set theme " and that's it, that page or post will have a new theme, keep The main theme on the cover of the web, file and others, because only affects the change to the chosen page or entry .

Chulo, huh ?, but do not go crazy.

JetPack 2.5 adds integration with Google+, embedded Facebook and more

Sincerely the plugin JetPack is becoming a WordPress add-on practically indispensable if you want to have a lot of the most used features by any blogger or webmaster.

And with the 2.5 update that has come out a few hours ago delves into this line of improvement, because has incorporated some utilities that you are already using with a lot of plugins .

In this new version, in addition to everything you already had, It incorporates the following:

I can not tell you which incorporation I think is the most interesting since that is always a matter of taste, but for my taste it is the integration with Google+ and content authoring which usually requires of several steps and here is simplified incredibly .

Export from WordPress to HTML

 html

Get in Situation …

You have created a great site with WordPress but you have to migrate it to a server that does not support PHP or databases, only HTML . Or another situation …

You have created your website with WordPress, you will not modify it anymore, and you or your client want to forget about updates, maintenance, and other issues associated with a CMS .

Surely you can think of more possible situations in which you want or need to migrate your web made with WordPress to static HTML . If this is the case, the thing has an easy solution.

You just have to install in WordPress that " you abandon " the WP Static HTML Output plugin you activate it and you go through the page of " Tools -> WP HTML Static Output ", you adjust a couple of options and you give " Generate ". After a while, which will depend on the amount of content on your website, you will have a zip ready to download, with the necessary files to upload to your new site, already in HTML .

 zip export wordpress to html

Of course you have this type of fixes, because what you get is a static HTML site, that is, you forget comments, modify pages or entries easily from an editor, to change the theme or add features through plugins as is is how it is, unless you want to get to modify the HTML or CSS by hand.

The subject of comments it is important, because the export will also show the comments form, so before exporting to HTML better installs and activates this plugin to deactivate them altogether and to export something that then does not go to work.

The zip that crea has everything you need a index.html with all the links and code needed to load your cover and a folder for each of the entries and pages that you had, and inside each folder the necessary files to show it as it was. It also downloads the active theme folder and some of WordPress in case you need images for the new site.

 zip exported from wordpress to html

As for the plugin, all it has to be said, it works like a joke, does what it promises . The author says that in future versions will incorporate the direct upload by FTP, but come on, that at the moment with having the zip, unzip it and upload the files to the chosen site you have more than enough.

The only fault I have found is that if you use a very peculiar " theme " it is not able to replicate all the dependencies of stylesheets and code, not giving an exact result to the previous one … but it approaches . But I already tell you that it is in special cases.

And, if you want to try, there is some other plugin that does the same as the one we have seen. You have, for example, Really Static with lots of possible adjustments, which comes to do the same. It works very well but for my liking there are plenty of settings for something so simple to do.

Another possible system for exporting WordPress to HTML is to use the application HTTrack which downloads any web with all its dependencies and files.

Come on, what power can you have, but better not do it if you do not have any need, you do not gain anything and you lose a lot, right? It is always better to do just the opposite, convert static HTML to WordPress .

A different loop

 loop wordpress

The loop is the WordPress matrix but there are very few pages which make more use demanding of this module, today I will show you how to perform a somewhat different loop .

The image that you see below is part of one of the pages I administer and the loop is divided into 2, even though it is the same loop a first article that has a thumbnail defined of a particular size and is to the left, and the other items aligned to the right.

 loop -different "src =" https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/loop-diferente-500x332.png "width =" 500 "height =" 332 "srcset =" https: // ayudawp .com / wp-content / uploads / 2013/09 / loop-different-500x332.png 500w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/loop-diferente.png 696w "sizes =" (max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px "/> </a></p>
<p style= Seeing it from pure HTML what we want to achieve is simple and straightforward.

Within your loop you will have to enter a code very similar to this, remember that this is an easy example to understand and can be improved.

Line number ] 11 asks about the following posts which are stored in positions 1, 2, 3, 4 that correspond to posts 2, 3, 4 and 5.

After performing all this, just make a hand CSS and go giving different styles to the classes highlighted-1 and highlighted-2.

It is all about opening and closing the layer according to the post that is showing, I give you these links where you can find more information on how to use IF or SWITCH

http://php.net/manual/es/control-structures.if .php

http://php.net/manual/en/control-structures.switch.php

Esper and it will be very useful for you to start making modifications to your blog and your clients'.

How to allow users to edit their comments • WordPress Help

I just saw a trick that allows us to make that users of our sites can edit their comments a function that is included in external systems like Disqus or Intense Debate.

To achieve this, we only need to install the plugin Simple Comment Editing . Once activated, it will allow the editing of comments after sending them.

By default, users can edit for 5 minutes after the comment is published. If you wish, you can change this period of time by adding the following code in the functions.php file of your theme or your functions plugin:

This way we can change the editing time, but for avoid mistakes, it is recommended not to put more than 30 minutes.

WordPress has democratized Internet publishing • WordPress Help

Last Friday there was a debate about the WordPress world in which I had the honor of being invited along with a good number of professionals who, as they say, were not all what they are but if they are all that were .

It would be very pretentious, as well as impossible, to quote here everything that was said in the more than 2 hours of debate that everyone I was able to follow live using the Google+ Hangouts system and broadcast live on YouTube, so it's best to see it yourself and select which parts interest you the most.

In a rough way, topics like what is WordPress ?, what do we like more and less about WordPress? what about cookies and European legislation? where does WordPress go? ]and much more, where of course consultations were attended to by all those who followed the debate on YouTube, Google+ and Twitter.
