    I have been following WP Mayor for years, and I am surprised this site is recommending this plugin.

    It seems it would cause all kinds of chaos and havoc on a WP install.

    Code Canyon!!!???

      Thanks for following us for such a long time Rick, we appreciate that! Why do you think it would cause chaos and havoc?

      With respect to CodeCanyon in general, there are several excellent plugins there. Of course there are many which are not worth their price, but then again the WordPress.org repository is also filled with useless/badly coded plugins.

    Jean,

    I was going to leave this item alone. But I consider it an honor that YOU took time to respond because I admire the outstanding work you have done over many years.

    So it is quite a privilege for me to speak to you directly.

    I would just ask potential user to do an Internet search on problems with this plugin before deciding to give it a whirl.

    As mentioned in my first post, over the years your site has uncovered great plugin that go unnoticed by almost the entire WP community.

    For example, almost 2 years ago, this site turned me onto Clean Talk, which is a great plugin that I still use with no issues at all.

    Generally, in my research on plugins this site is one of my main sources for reliable, competent, unbiased information.

    Unfortunately, I don’t this is the case with the plugin.

    But you still are my go-to source.

    Much respect for what you do and have done.

    Thanks

    A way to avoid using such a plugin is to use custom page templates that call the function. Part of the security this affords is active only when you disallow file editing within WordPress .

    This sort of attack is not endemic to WordPress, it happens with every webapp out there, but WordPress is popular and thus a frequent target.

    I understand why would someone want to hide fact they are using WordPress from security aspect.
    But you can’t hide that fact fully. Taking security measures and having decent security plugin installed should cover basic security protection.
