Pro Version of Block Bad Queries

Posted by on

BBQ Pro is the premium version of my free security plugin, Block Bad Queries. BBQ Pro helps keep your WordPress-powered site safe and secure by blocking bad URI requests. This helps to conserve precious server resources like memory and bandwidth. BBQ Pro runs silently in the background, checking all incoming traffic and blocking any URI requests that contain nasty stuff like eval(, base64_, and other malicious nonsense. It’s advanced firewall protection that’s fast, flexible, and fully customizable.

Awesome new gallery plugin that enables grouped animated galleries based on categories and more. Sorta hard to explain but you can see how it works via the demo. DigWP people can save a few bucks on the personal or developer version.
