Top 10 WordPress CMS Plugins: I am a sucker for top 10 lists about WordPress, especially if they contain useful information. This list of top ten plugins put together from the experiences of a professional design firm, will help you create a full CMS out of a WordPress blog. I have used a few of these myself on various projects and their flexibility and speciality together with WordPress’ versatility and extensibility make a phenomenal combination. From the post: For moderately sized sites (including simple e-Commerce sites), WordPress does a pretty good job as a CMS, making it easy to maintain your site, and update your content. Of course, it does this best with the help of a good theme, and some great plugins. The strength of WordPress is the community of developers who have already done almost anything you can think of with it. Here are the best plugins we’ve […]

How to organize posts into two side-by-side columns in WordPress: A quick tutorial on setting up the front page of a WordPress blog to display two side by side columns with posts alternating between the two columns. The tutorial does require some simple PHP code that is not included (but should be, pseudo code is provided) but the concept is interesting, especially for theme developers looking for the next new thing. In my experience, side by side posts are more applicable for blogs that are heavy in embedded media and light on text.

ModSecurity, WordPress Admin and “Method Not Implemented”

responses

I battled this one for a little bit and I hope the information here helps someone. First and foremost, there are various version of this problem and they might have different causes stemming from the same source. I list them here in no particular order. I found all the topics starting with a search for the dreaded “Method Not Implemented” 501 error code from the admin panel of WordPress. POST to /test/wp-admin/index-extra.php not supported: This error is also noticed on post.php and theme-editor.php. Now there are various WordPress Forum posts providing somewhat workable solutions to the problem. I tried some of the solutions but either they did not work for me (I had not looked that closely at the error before trying them) or they were too broad and I did not care for the results. There is some finger pointing in both the forums and the various other pages […]

Instapaper: I came across this service via Techeme and was impressed with the ease of use. Although I barely ever have to “read something later”, one could use Instapaper to quickly and easily bookmark sites, blogs or news items for later reading which could then be cleaned up. Signup is incredibly easy and they provide you with a bookmarket to use. Would you use something like Instapaper? I wonder how they would monetize it?

WordPress Security

Today, we have a moderately critical SQL Injection Vulnerability that was discovered by HouSSaMix in the “WP-Cal” plugin version 0.x for WordPress. According to the Secunia Advisory: Input passed to the “id” parameter in functions/editevent.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code. Users with a malicious intent can conduct SQL injection attacks which may result in the retrieval of usernames, password hashes, and email addresses for users and administrators. However, the malicious user must have knowledge of the database table prefix. So far, version 0.3 has been confirmed as having this vulnerability with other versions possibly being affected. Secunia states that the solution involves editing the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. Click here to read the original advisory which provides an example of the exploit as well as the vulnerable […]
