Interview with Security Researcher Hendrik Buckwald

An interesting interview about the state of security of WordPress plugins with Hendrick Buchwald, the co founder of Code Risk. During the interview Hendrick also talks about the free online source code analyzer which they are offering to all WordPress plugin developers, hoping that it will help developers write more secure code.

Interview with Security Researcher Hendrik Buckwald

Plugins | wpwhitesecurity.com | 3 days ago

Vulnerabilities in WordPress plugins have been the cause of more site hacks than vulnerabilities in WordPress core. One of the reasons why this is happening is lack of resources. Software will always have vulnerabilities, though the WordPress core code is vetted by thousands of people. Also, the foundation has resources allocated to ensure that the code is as secure as possible. On the other hand, many plugin developers do not have the resources available to ensure that their plugins’ code is secure, especially if it is a small plugin. Though that is all going to change, as Hendrik Buchwald explains in this interview. Hendrik is software engineer, security researcher, and co-founder of RIPS Technologies.
What does RIPS Technologies do?
RIPS Technologies is a high-tech company based in Bochum, Germany. We deliver automated security analysis for PHP applications as local software installation or highly scalable cloud service. Our innovative code analysis algorithms, which are specifically dedicated to the PHP language, can identify complex security vulnerabilities in modern applications like no other solution.

Introducing ACF Blocks for Gutenberg

The Advanced Custom Fields folks have just announced ACF blocks for Gutenberg. Creating Gutenberg blocks for ACF can now be achieved with registering with PHP code!

Introducing ACF Blocks for Gutenberg

There has been a lot of excitement surrounding Gutenberg, the new block-based WordPress editing experience. One of its most compelling features is the ability for developers to create their own custom block types. This opens up an endless array of possibilities for customization. There’s just one little problem. Creating custom blocks is extremely complicated. How complicated? Well, even a simple testimonials block requires a massive amount of code.
The entire process is both time and code intensive. The result is that many developers will consider the custom blocks feature to be out of their reach.
While we have been hard at work to ensure metabox compatibility with Gutenberg, an idea hit us. What if we could make it easier to build custom block types for Gutenberg? Blocks that allow you to use ACF + PHP to create stunning dynamic content!
Well, it hasn’t been easy, but we are delighted to announce that our ACF Blocks feature is starting to take shape! In fact, you can now take it for spin! ACF version 5.8.0-beta1 is now available for download and includes an early stage of our ACF Blocks feature to help you create custom block types without the fuss.

Why You Should Stop Using Nulled WordPress Plugins And Themes

Using nulled plugins are not illegal however not the best idea is your business relies on your WordPress sites. Also, you are not supporting the plugin developers.

Why You Should Stop Using Nulled WordPress Plugins And Themes

Plugins | kinsta.com | 15 days ago

No one likes spending more money than necessary – it’s a human thing. Even one of the richest people in the world, Warren Buffet, still searches out discounts on the cars he buys (ok, maybe that’s an extreme example – you get the idea). Because people are always on the lookout for ways to cut costs, some WordPress users are tempted to turn to nulled WordPress plugins and themes instead of paying for the official premium version.
In this post, we’re going to tell you why using nulled WordPress plugins and themes is a bad idea…even if it’s not necessarily breaking any laws.
Nulled WordPress Plugins and Themes Aren’t Necessarily Illegal
Let’s start with the elephant in the room…
It’s unlikely that the FBI kicks down your door if you use nulled WordPress plugins or themes. That’s because, in contrast to the other content that people usually “pirate” (e.g. music, movies), nulled WordPress plugins and themes are often not breaking the law.
The reason here has to do with the GPL (General Public License). Without making this a lesson on copyright, you just need to know that part of what the GPL license allows

The New Woo Adopts Gutenberg Components, User Interface Driven by React

Plugins | wptavern.com | 23 hours ago

WooSesh, the free virtual conference devoted to WooCommerce kicked off earlier today. Todd Wilkins, Head of eCommerce at Automattic, Kelly Hoffman, Head of Design for eCommerce at Automattic, and Aviva Pinchas, Product Lead of the WooCommerce Marketplace at Automattic got things started with the keynote presentation. Wilkins highlighted what the team has accomplished since last year and outlined what users can expect in 2019. Pinchas shared a wealth of data from a survey that was sent to WooCommerce users and to end the presentation, Hoffman described how the team designed the new interfaces.
One of the major changes coming to WooCommerce is a redesigned backend. The project is being developed on GitHub as a feature plugin called WC-Admin.
The dashboard is a landing page where store owners will be able to see at a glance how their store is doing. The new interface is powered by the React JavaScript framework, specifically the React components that are part of the Gutenberg project. It’s modular, allowing users to add, move, and remove blocks. Developers will be able to extend the dashboard and provide custom blocks.
In addition to the new interface, reports are being overhauled.

Why Green Dots in Yoast Aren't Moving Your Rankings

Yoast is a great tool for SEO. What happens when you have green dots all the way down, but you still aren't ranking in Google? Here's a few reasons you might not be on page one of Google.

Why Green Dots in Yoast Aren't Moving Your Rankings

Plugins | lockedownseo.com | 15 days ago

John Locke is a SEO consultant from Sacramento, CA. He helps manufacturing businesses rank higher through his web agency, Lockedown Design & SEO. If your website is built on WordPress, you have probably used the Yoast SEO plugin.
Yoast SEO is the number one SEO helper plugin for WordPress, (and they also have a module for Drupal). Here’s how it works.
For each page or article you edit, you set a focus keyword phrase. Yoast SEO gives you an overall score for Readability and SEO.
Green dots mean “good”, orange dots mean “OK”, red dots mean “needs improvement”.
You also get a breakdown of individual areas that fall under the red, orange, and green dots. (There will be a screenshot further down of what this looks like in the back end.)
So here’s the question that I hear most often from other Yoast users:
“I have green dots in Yoast. So why am I not ranking higher in Google?”
I understand why there’s confusion. Isn’t Yoast supposed to help you rank higher?
It can, but with an asterisk.
SEO is a black box inside a moving target, and there is no transparent formula to ranking number one in Google.
But I’m here

The WordPress Plugin Directory has over 56K plugins, many of them have entire eco-systems built around them with solid business models. Up until now you could not simply link to the plugin page or add additional visual presentation, but nothing more. But now you can easily “oEmbed” plugin URLs to present a visual representation of the plugin. How It made possible?
WordPress 4.4 (Clifford), released in December 2015, added the oEmbed functionality to all WordPress content. This feature makes all WordPress posts and pages embeddable by simply pasting URLs into the WordPress editor, making WordPress auto-display the preview of the pasted URL. Behind the scenes, each site can customize its embedded output, by adding the new embed.php file into the active theme’s folder.
When the WordPress Plugin Directory was upgraded to version 3, the bbPress-based system was dropped in favor of the upgraded WordPress system, built with Post Types and all the other builtin-features available in core, including the oEmbed functionality.
By the end on July 2018, the plugin repository added oEmbed support to plugin pages using custom embed.php file allowing everybody to auto embed plugin

Through the years of doing support for our WordPress plugins we received numerous requests for little features or customizations that our clients wanted. All of our products make use WordPress actions and filters, so for many of the available functionalities, you can change the outcome or modify it to your liking using a hook. While searching for and using hooks isn’t a problem for users with developer experience, our customer base is large and has different qualifications.
There’s always the option to keep on adding extra options and settings in the plugin, but because we want to keep our plugins clean and simple, we decided against cluttering the interface.
Solving the issue
Most of these customization requests were handled through snippets of custom code that we sent to our users who were requesting them.
This approach was not ideal, because not everyone would be able to benefit from them, so we wanted to make them available to more users. Thus, the Developer Knowledge Base area of our documentation was born.

A Very Informal Look at Gutenberg Accessibility

Plugins | thatdevgirl.com | 2 days ago

We have been working all year to replatform our websites at work from Drupal to WordPress. We decided to go with WordPress for many reasons, one of the biggest being its admin UI. The WordPress edit screen, especially when compared to the Drupal edit screen, has historically been intuitive and preferred by content editors. In fact, many of my clients in the past have asked to switch their websites from Drupal (or similarly complex systems) to WordPress because of WordPress’s UI advantages. WordPress 5.0 and Gutenberg
The recent updates to the upcoming WordPress 5.0 release, specifically the new Gutenberg editor, appears to be undoing these advantages. I have been working with Gutenberg in development since the start of our replatforming project. The UI has so much promise in terms of allowing editors to add, remove, and rearrange content blocks on pages. The UI is clunky, but it has been getting so much better over the course of this year.
However, I say this as a (mostly) fully abled user. (I mean, I have been having age-related sight issues lately, but otherwise, I am fully capable of navigating the web without assistive technology.)

Why You Need To Discontinue Using Nulled WordPress Plugins On Your Site

As a WordPress plugin owner it is nice to see such subject being discussed and dealt with. There are many implications to using "pirated" WordPress plugins, including security ones. Good read.

Why You Need To Discontinue Using Nulled WordPress Plugins On Your Site

Plugins | wedevs.com | Aug. 14, 2018

We all know WordPress, the software, is free and great for beginners, hobby bloggers, and even serious businesses. The platform is supplemented by hundreds and thousands of plugins, themes, and extensions built by developers from around the globe. There are thousands of free plugins and themes on WordPress, that can easily be used as alternatives to the pricey versions. This makes the life of many website owners easy! But here's the thing, from time to time, we do need to run premium (paid) plugins to get those extra benefits and functions for our site. A good number of users opt to run these premium solutions nulled and pirated. Getting involved in copyright infringement, is, however, outright theft. And this is highly discouraged because it costs your site a lot more than it gives back.
Consider motives of nulled software providers
Before we delve into the consequences for users using pirated versions, let's consider what nulled hosts are obtaining from distributing paid plugins freely. Nulled plugins and themes are, for the vast majority of times, given out by individuals who cannot be identified through unsecured sites.

Redirecting visitors to their own language preference based on browser language or IP address is a feature that is often requested by our TranslatePress users. We have made it possible using our newest add-on Automatic User Language Detection. First time visitors expect to see the website in a language they understand. With such a short attention span it’s easy to lose users who are not finding the language switcher soon enough. This is why it’s important not only to have their language available, but to automatically redirect to it.
The last visited language is remembered through a cookie, so that returning visitors will always visit your website directly in their chosen language.
Works out of the box
The Automatic User Language Detection add-on works out-of-the-box, with no required setup steps. There is no need to register for IP address language services, because the language recognition based on IP happens locally with the help of GeoLite2 databases from MaxMind.
There are two ways of finding out what languages the visitors speak: by browser language setting or by IP address. In the community, the browser language is seen as the most reliable information, but it depends

Does your website feel slow? Does it take a couple of minutes for your website to fully load? If so, then you’re definitely going to want to do something about it. If it’s frustrating for you to wait for your website to load imagine how visitors to your site feel! Let me first say that your site could be running slow for a couple of different reasons:
The site itself is not optimized properly for speed (which this post will address)
You have a terrible hosting company
The WordPress plugins I’m going to discuss below will address the site optimization issue but not your hosting. If your site is still super slow after installing these 3 WordPress plugins you might want to take a look at switching to a new host.
Image compression is very important for having a speedy site. This is especially true if you have an image-based or image-heavy website. After you install the plugin it will scan your media library and compress all the images you already have uploaded. Going forward it will compress any new images at the time you post them.
Don’t worry about it messing up your image quality or damaging the user experience. It’s not going to change how images look to
