Password Policy Manager

Weak passwords leave your site vulnerable. WordPress sites with more than one user should enforce a "strong password" policy for better security. To help with this, check out Password Policy Manager. It is a CHOICE WordPress plugin that makes it easy to define a strong set of password requirements for your site's users. Easy to use and provides a robust set of features. Check it out.

Lean WP

Super useful plugin from Pieter, to help restore WordPress closer to its foundational philosophy of "Clean, Lean, and Mean". Lean WP disables LOTS of potential bloat like Emojis, REST API, Embeds, XLM-RPC, et al. Pieter also offers some other great plugins.

WordPress is Forked

It's happening: WordPress is being forked. Meet ClassicPress. The original, Gutenberg-free WordPress publishing platform.

Launch! New WordPress Plugins

It's been a BUSY year! So far most of my work is focusing on WordPress plugins. Recently announced Disable Gutenberg and Gutenberg Custom Fields plugins. And now I am pleased to announce 5 more plugins designed to improve your WordPress workflow: Disable Responsive Images, Disable WP REST API, Enable Database Tools, WP Cron HTTP Auth, and the BEST for last: Contact Form X. Please check ‘em out, and THANKS for your generous attention.

Banhammer!

Announcing my latest WordPress security plugin, Banhammer! It makes monitoring site traffic and banning unwanted guests waay too much fun. Navigate logged requests via slick Ajax UI, and enable sound effects for banning and warning bad users and bots. Check out the video on YouTube and download Banhammer from the WP Plugin Directory.

Update! Banhammer Pro now available :)

Host Header Injection Fix

On certain server setups, WordPress is vulnerable to an email interception attack. Basically WP uses the $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] variable for the "From" header in email notifications. On certain systems this can be exploited by an attacker to gain access to your site. This issue has been known about since WP 2.3, but nothing has been done about it. So I decided to write a plugin to fix it up.

WordPress: Plugin Development

After months of hard work, I am excited to announce the launch of my new video course on developing WordPress plugins. It covers the entire process of building, securing, and optimizing your own plugins, including 50+ ready-to-go demo files, examples, and plugins. The course is focused on developing plugins using the WP API and Standards. Covers basics and gets into advanced topics like HTTP API, REST API, and WP Cron. Truly packed with practical examples and techniques to help you create your own awesome plugins. Check it out at Lynda.com »

Pleased to announce the Pro version of my WordPress security plugin, Blackhole for Bad Bots — now available from Plugin Planet. Blackhole Pro stops bad bots, spammers, scrapers, and other automated threats. Trap bad bots in a virtual Blackhole and save precious server resources for your legit visitors.
