WordPress 3.9, Security and Other Topics

WordPress 3.9 is scheduled to be released on 4/16/2014. Before that two security updates were released. Many WordPress installations have automatic updates turned on and they received an email advising them that an update was installed. Some people were confused about this email because they never received on before.

An ongoing discussion about hiding the administrator username has many people claiming this is required to secure an installation. Another question is about the SQL database name and security.

Whenever we meet other topics come up and we will address some of those. Bring your questions and experiences.

    Slide presentation was good. Dialog among attendees better.

      I think that the slide presentation was intended to stimulate dialog among attendees. It did that job perfectly. Thank you very much for a great meeting, Rick!

    Bad Coding, Conflict with WordPress, Conflict with Another Plugin or Conflict with Your Theme. Try deactivating all plugins and turn on each one at a time till you find the corrupted plugin.

    I have been having a problem recently where deactivating or updating a plugin causes the plugins page to not redisplay. I wonder whether anyone in this group might be willing to help me solve the problem. This same problem happens both on the live site and on the local site on my computer.

    WordPress Meetup Plugin
    There is a new version of this plugin. If you need to show meetups on a WordPress site this could help.
