Stop spam registrations

Stop spam registrations

Is your WordPress blog opened for new user registrations? If “YES”, then you are familiar with a lot of users registered every day. But the most of those users do not login, do not make posts. It seems that there are no real users behind such registrations. All these contacts like:
– “yqvcevsjc (beswixv@gmail.com)”,
– “ymmoncmn7 (pa.lino.be.s@gmail.com)”,
– “www.cheap-some-best-and-beautiful-garbage.com (yuhjgtfnski@gmail.com)”, etc.
are SPAM registrations obviously. These fake users at WordPress database cost you a time to delete them, create the mess from your lovely users list, so you (and me together with you) have strong desire to Stop SPAM registrations. Do You?

Even ideally written post got defects with time – it could loose links to other posts or external resources inserted into its text. Internet is alive and dynamic system.

Special capabilities for custom post type

custom post type capabilities

You configured custom post type at your WordPress managed site. You did it with special plugin or manually. It works good. But what to do, if it uses standard WordPress posts permissions, e.g. ‘edit_posts’, but you need to separate access for standard and custom posts for authors and editors? Does WordPress offer a decision?
Yes. Custom post type may have custom capabilities set defined and it could be fully different from the standard post capabilities set.
What variants do you have?
1st, – use plugin which can manage not just custom post types, but custom capabilities set for those custom post types too. Good example is Custom Post Types UI WordPress plugin. I used it myself long time at my personal Russian language site FiNovel.com. Inspite of little quant of “Works” reviews at WordPress plugins repository page, I confirm – it works.

WP Sanitize or Simple Optimization - who's the author

WP Sanitize or Simple Optimization

I’m interesting in WordPress security plugins. Recently, going through WordPress plugins repository I found one which looked promising. “WP Sanitize checks for potential security vulnerabilities and keeps your WordPress database optimized”, – this is quote from its description. I decided to test it.

Author: Mr. Vibe
Version: 1.0
Download link : wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-sanitize/

I thought, how’s that possible with size 2 Kb only to check security vulnerabilities? May be it uses some web service for that? What critical data plugin sends to external site then in order to make security test? So I went through the code and discovered that there is no any real or potential vulnerabilities checking in the current version of plugin.
