Let's get this Meetup started!

This will be our first Meetup! Come with ideas for what you might want to discuss in the future. Invite any other WordPressers that you know who might want to join us. Using WordPress is a ton of fun on its own, but creating a community of local users will just make it that much cooler.

    Unfortunately I missed tonight's meeting due to unexpectedly having to work really late. I look forward to future meetups though and am glad this one seems to have went well.

    This was posted on the WP New Haven group message board. I had mentioned this at the end of our meeting; I hope you find it useful!
    =====
    Unless you plug this hole, you can find out the usernames for WordPress sites in zero seconds flat.

    www.yoursitename.com/?author=1

    Enter that URL and keep changing the author number until the usernames come up.
    I was amazed at that myself and am trying to plug that hole.

    ERGO, while deleting an "admin" user helps, strong passwords ARE IMPERATIVE.
    If you don't want anyone to find your username, make sure your display name is different from your username and install this plugin:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-author-slug/

    That way, when some one/bot tries the phishing method above, they will see the set display name and not the actual username that is used to log in.

    If you want to catch people trying to phish for your username, the way that was mentioned above, install ZBBlock. It has a signature to catch and log some of those attempts.

    I am going to be cruising up from Fairfield County and likely stuck in traffic. I probably won't be able to get there until 730 or so, but look forward to meeting everyone!

    Mondays are the one night that's tough for me to make. Maybe we can get an event scheduled on another night. Wish you all the best.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
