Maximum WordPress Security

January 3rd, 2009
WordPress Weekly

I flew solo for episode 35 while Keith cranked out some college work. In this episode, I interviewed Mark E. who is just about ready to release the first beta of his comprehensive WordPress Security plugin called Maximum Security. During our discussion, it was easy to see that this plugin contains just about everything except the kitchen sink as it relates to security and WordPress. If you don’t believe me, view the long list of features this plugin has with more on the way. We also discussed security through obscurity, basic WordPress security practices and much more. Mark has 15 years of experience in network and system security and within this episode, he gave us about 4 years worth of experience in less than an hour!

Plugin Of The Week:Comment Luv – Comments are a wonderful thing to receive on your blog and while adding the dofollow plugin is one way to reward your commenter’s, why not place a link to their last post under their comment. With CommentLuv, you can do that automatically! This is an excellent way to promote comments from your readers. The CommentLuv WordPress Plugin will visit the feed of the comment author and attempt to scrape the last post they made and display it under their comment, this way you can encourage people to join in the discussion of your posts and give something back straight away. WordPress.

Announcements: Douglas Bell will be our special guest on January 9th..

    I am the only one that think that Comment Luv is not really going in the right direction. The most annoying thing of all is the warning you get on every page of your blog if you don’t update every single time there is a new release. It’s my damn blog, you can’t impose yourself like that!
