Do not do it! but … this is how emails are exported from comments • WordPress Help

This is one of those tricks that one doubts before sharing, because has more danger than one pump case but as the responsibility is yours, and there are situations where you may need something like that, for ethical reasons of course, for me not to be left.

And, I repeat, do not do it ! and if you use it before it notifies your visitors that your emails will be archived, otherwise you will be not complying with a basic data protection okay?

Ea, well, come on to it, because the explanation and danger is longer than to get it.

You just have to install the plugin Export emails . Once you have it active you go through the new menu located in "Tools -> Export emails."

There you will see two boxes, well, without anesthesia. In the first are all emails of registered users in your WordPress, extracted from the user table of your database, and in the second the emails of all visitors who have ever commented , in this case extracted from the table comments also from the database.

 export-emails "width =" 520 "height =" 348 "class =" alignnone size-full wp-image-76359 "srcset =" 520w, 09 / export-emails-500x334.png 500w "sizes =" (max-width: 520px) 100vw, 520px "/> </p>
<p> That's it, now what you do with those lists, which you can copy and paste where you want ( flat text, spreadsheet, etc.), it's up to you, you know, <a href= a great power carries a great responsibility

The fault of telling you this has it WPBeginner

Link Shield, protection against the Google Tax

 Link Shield

Next September will begin to apply the fee known as Rate Google. In what consists is that if you link a website giving some information about what is in it (summary or mention), you have to pay a fee. In the event that the fee is not paid, they could be sanctioned with a fine ranging from € 300 to € 30,000.

In theory, no Spanish page that is linked, can waive this fee , But what is the problem? That only the members of AEDE and CEDRO will share the benefits. For example, any site that copied WordPress Help, should pay that fee to AEDE and CEDRO, but the owner of WordPress Help would not see even one euro, since he is not a member of these associations. But do not forget that they are going to start with the associates, since charging them all, for everything, is sure to bring them many problems.

Next September, this new law will be put into operation if no one turns back or prevent it, which nobody knows, at that moment they will begin to look for backlinks to the associates and to send requests for the rate.

What can we do? Well, the solution is to eliminate all links to the members of these two associations, but it is clear that taking into account that there are about 86 members, it can be complicated. If you have comments open, like the vast majority, even more complicated, and if you use BuddyPress or bbPress, it is impossible to manage, since how many users may have made mentions to partner pages?

The solution goes through the use of the free plugin Link Shield . This plugin will automatically remove all the links you have to these associations in the entries, comments, BuddyPress, bbPress as in all sub sites of a WordPress Multisite installation, well, thanks to this free plugin you can save yourself a scare of thousands of euros.

The time to install and activate it, is now since the backlinks should disappear so they can not find you in September. If you wait for the implementation of the law, it may be too late.

The operation of this plugin is very simple, it is installed, it is activated and ready, no necessary configuration, although in future versions it will come with surprises. At the moment you activate it, all the links to the associates that are in entries, comments, BuddyPress activities or bbPress forums, will be deleted, please note, they will not be deleted from the database, they will not be shown. At any time you can disable this plugin and everything will remain as it was before its activation.

Remember, the no install it now and activate it, it may mean that in September you regret it or you are safe at 100 % that in any part of your site there is a link to one of those 86 websites? I would not play it.

How to comply with Spanish cookies legislation

 law cookies españa

A few days ago the first fines have fallen to two Spanish websites for violating the legal rules on cookies . The fines have been of 3,000 and 500 euros respectively, but could have amounted to the not insignificant figure of 30,000 euros .

According to the sentence one of the sites, ] created with WordPress (although it confuses with, it used JetPack cookies ( _qca ), SlimStat (from the statistics module) and Quancast ( mc ]).

Of all this, some plugin warns us like Cookilian that we already saw in the article of how to comply with the cookie legislation in WordPress and it would not hurt install it and check the cookies that are on your site and create a page that adequately reports them, mostly to not get you upset.

What are the implications of these first two sentences? I personally think that it sends very bad messages …

The first thing is that, with all the big companies, and all of the IBEX, ignoring the flagrant legislation of cookies, that the Data Protection Agency breastfeed with two small companies I do not know if qualify it as a way to get noticed by setting an example against the little ones who can not or know how to defend themselves well, or as a warning to sailors to scare, again, the little ones.

Meanwhile, what is achieved is that every small business that tries to prosper on the Internet end up closing or moving your business to another country where they do not get so great with something that should be corrected with a software solution, by the hand of Microsoft, Google or Apple, then with a line code could perfectly block cookies unless expressly approved and for all, in their browsers.

But no, here we are more asshole and stupendous than anyone and we are dedicated to fuck the Easter to our SMEs to put obstacles in the way of entrepreneurs, to prevent electronic commerce from emerging and being able to give employment.

It is true that the laws are to comply with them but also administrations have the responsibility and the duty to make life easier for their managers, finding the best solution to the problems that arise, and something that could be arranged so easily by talking to the big software companies, instead is attacked the small webs that subsist with scarce penalties, but much easier to penalize with fines that can not be escaped due to lack of legal cabinets that make the processes "sleep" or even win them.

What they get is that something that should be good: guarantee the Internet user's right to privacy, end up being a brake on that same freedom, not to mention the flowering of new opportunities on the web.

So you know, if you're not a big untouchable multinational, you better prepare your website to comply with the cookie legislation. Do not get pimp because you see that the most important newspapers and portals do not comply, they will not touch them, but you do.

That you have not yet gotten to work to comply with the legislation of cookies? and get to work:

Automatic watermarks in WordPress

If you regularly use original images on your website, it will not be fun to find them on other sites, or at least if they appear who made the photos or created the images .

Regardless of the systems for avoid content theft it is worth adding the ones known as " watermarks "In your images.

And much better if we do it automatically, right?

Well what you have to do is create a function which you will add to your function plugin or file fucntions.php of the active theme.

You have it just below, with a function watermark () that takes into account 3 parameters ( $ SourceFile $ WaterMarkText $ DestinationFile ) that create a watermark image from the specified source image. The first parameter – $ SourceFile – is the complete server path to the image that will serve as a watermark. The second – WaterMarkText – is the text message you want to add as a watermark. And the last parameter – $ DestinationFile – you can leave it blank or put the full path to a new file that would have both the source file and the watermark text on it.

What does this function is to read the source file, then create a new image object, using the function imagecopyresampled () . Then, using the font " arial.ttf " and the function imagettftext () write the WaterMarkText in the image. The last statement IF checks whether the file should be saved with a watermark or if it should only be displayed on the screen.

You will have than download the source file " arial.ttf " and upload it to your server. Then copy and paste the previous function in the function plugin. The next 4 lines which you also have to add to your function plugin, are used to define the source file, the text message of the watermark and the destination file. If you only want to show the image as a watermark then you leave the variable $ DestinationFile empty ( $ DestinationFile = ''; ).

Make sure that for the source file and destination you have to include the full path of the server and also the name of the file. If you change the position of the message for the watermark in your images you have to change the line imagettftext ($ image_p, $ font_size, 0, 10, 20, $ black, $ font, $ WaterMarkText); .

PHP Code seen on phpjabbers

Mola true? What? … yes, that's cool …

Vaaaaaaale, I know, you want to make it easier. Well nothing, to pull plugins . If you are wandering then try some of these plugins in case they do the fix, but do not say you have not learned to do it in "pro mode" eh!

  • Bulk watermark : it's a bit of a beast but it works, what it does is add a watermark to ALL the images that you have uploaded to your WordPress, without questions or explanations, you cheer up and do it. Very useful if you have realized late that you should add this type of protection to your images.
  • Watermark reloaded : similar to the previous one, quite configurable and effective. Its function is to add a watermark to the existing images in your WordPress.
  • Signature watermark : very nice and customizable, because you can add text and image watermarks, with a really complete options panel, it would be the ideal substitute for the code
  • Watermark my image : this adds to the possibilities of the former the virtues of the first one, since besides adding watermarks to the new images it also offers you the possibility to add it to all the images that already you had previously uploaded to your WordPress. Less configurable than Signature but more complete.

Ea, that's it, you mark it well!

WordPress security suite

Lately, joined to the growing popularity of WordPress there are increasingly unpresentable trying to inject malware and other types of malicious software in WordPress installations, which somehow goes to certify the coming of age of this CMS and, consequently, the interest of all, with good and bad intentions.

Actually, keeping a WordPress Safe is relatively easy, you just have to follow some advice from WordPress security but it never hurts to help yourself with tools, and the more powerful the better.

Well, what I'm going for you to present here today is to date the best I've seen to ensure a WordPress installation

I'm talking about the best WordPress security plugin I've ever known with the what have I been doing tests for almost a month and with some really remarkable results.

I am referring to Wordfence Security a complete security suite for WordPress and to a level of completely corporate professionalism, that have nothing to envy to tools that cost thousands of euros.

The best thing is that the free version is really complete although the best option is the Pro pack for only $ 17.95 a year and site, which is not money if we care for our website.

But hey, it's best to make a list of features, and I'll point you to the pack that covers them:

  • Traffic in real time that shows when you visit the bots of search engines (and others), being able to discriminate by users, IPs and more – Free
  • File scan of the installation of WordPress for search of infections. In case of finding differences, it offers links to see the differences in the code, edit the file or delete it, and if you want to ignore the alert, until new changes or always. You can also restore the original file from the official repository with a click (not recommended for non-English installations, because it compares them to the English version and, for example, in Spanish, always detects location changes ) – Free
  • WordPress installation non-standard file alert – Free
  • File scanning of WordPress theme to search for infections, offering the same options above – Payment
  • ] Scan plugins to search for infections, and you can also see changes, edit, etc – Payment
  • Scan comments to search for URLs marked as malware websites in blacklists – Free
  • File scanning known malware – Free
  • Scanning of files containing URLs of malware and viruses – Free
  • Blocking of false Googlebot and aggressive crawlers – [1965901] 2] Free
  • Scanning comments to block malware and phishing URLs – Free
  • Hiding the WordPress version – Free
  • Blocking access attacks by brute force – Free
  • View main "content consumers" – Free
  • Hiding user error messages and password in WordPress access – Free
  • View 404 page errors not found – Free
  • Scan of available memory – Free
  • Scan and report of software environment installed on the server – Free
  • Monitoring of disk space – Free
  • Passwords security check – Free
  • Scan DNS changes – Free
  • Monitor dangerous IPs – Free
  • Integrated full firewall, easily configurable via rules – Free
  • Email configurable alerts – Free
  • Scheduled scans – Paid
  • Blocks of access to your web by country, being able to personalize a message or simply make a redirection – For payment
  • Premium support – For payment

As you can see, with this security suite you can uninstall another good number of security plugins since it combines in one it only software the characteristics of many others, whether they are access limiters, plugins to force strong passwords, and many more.

Another wonder is that you do not have to go crazy with the numerous settings that it offers, principle you are offered a series of safety configuration profiles to choose from:

  • Level 0: Disable all security options
  • Level 1: Light protection, only with the basic ones
  • Level 2: Medium protection, the ade for most of the sites, and that works as a joke without touching any setting
  • Level 3: High level of security, to use when there is knowledge of an imminent attack
  • Level 4: Level of Blockade, protects the site against attacks in progress, at the expense of inconvenience for some users
  • Custom level: it is activated only when you change some adjustment.

Anyway, totally recommendable, even in the free version although the most recommended is the Pro Pack, only by scanning the theme and plugins, which make it a essential software for any user responsible for WordPress .

Final note: if you can not afford to pay The Pro pack can complement what is missing from the free version of Wordfence through the plugin File Monitor Plus which scans all the files of your installation in a scheduled way (plugins and included topics) and warns you by email when there are changes.
