Those who attempt to seize control of WordPress sites often do so by burying obfuscated code in the PHP scripts of plugins, themes or the WordPress core. This is done through various exploits in improperly secured PHP, less-restricted file system permissions, or server counter-measures.Read More

When an article is published in WordPress, it could likely appear across several of the internal templates, besides just the single post page. For example, you may see “Recent Articles” on the home page sidebar or footer, “Related Articles” at the bottom of other posts, and “Search Results” may show excerpts with thumbnails to help readers to quickly find relevant results. These other applications of featured images not only direct readers to the freshest content, but they also notify search indexers of changes to a WordPress sitemap. This boosts the credibility of the site and its author by showing that the site is maintained and current, and offering cross-links to promote relevance.Read More

This is a quick trick for any Cordova coders operating on a Windows environment.
C:\app\>cordova -d platforms add android cordova library for "android" already exists. No need to download. Continuing. Checking if platform "android" passes minimum requirements... Creating android project... Running command: cmd args=["/c", "C:\\Users\\My Account With Spaces\\.cordova\\lib\\android\\cordova\\3.4.0\\bin\\create", "--cli", "C:\\app\\platforms\\android", "com.mycompany.testapp", "Test App"] 'C:\Users\My' is not recognized as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file.
( Grrr )
Windows should probably know better than to create directories (especially often accessed ones, such as a user’s profile folder), if it doesn’t know how to later address them in command line.
If you’re scratching your head over this one, you can get around it by modifying the path.
Open superspawn.js, located here:
C:\Users\[My Account With Spaces]\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\cordova\src
Update the line that calls the command to use a symbolic link. It’s roughly line 57:
cmd = resolvePath(cmd);
cmd = cmd.replace('C:\\Users\\My Account With Spaces\\.cordova','C:\\cordovalink');cmd = resolvePath(cmd);
Then, create a symbolic link at the new location C:\cordovalink, using this command:
C:\>mklink /D C:\cordovalink "C:\Users\My Account With Spaces\.cordova" symbolic link created for C:\cordovalink <<===>> C:\Users\My Account With Spaces\.cordova
Hopefully this will save you some time.

Video Thumbnails (also called “Poster Movies” by Quicktime and “Poster Images” by other video services) are the photos that are displayed in a video player before a video is activated and/or while the video is buffering.
If your blog is built on WordPress, and your videos are hosted on YouTube, you’ll notice that Facebook’s “Like” and “Send” buttons will rather liberally “scrape” (Facebook’s version of spidering and indexing) the article you posted. If you have the WordPress SEO plugin installed, you’re given some greater control over the granularity of your meta. But neither the WordPress core nor this popular plugin currently has a handler for passing YouTube video thumbnails to your social networks via Open Graph. For posts that are videos with only a few words of supplemental copy, Facebook users may not be enticed to click these shared links if they don’t include video thumbnails.Read More
