Are There Ghosts Inside Your WordPress Site ?

Right now there are thousands of websites around the world that hackers have placed malicious code in, but their owners don’t even know it.

They put these “ghosts” there, hidden, waiting for later use in possible coordinated attacks against major websites.

The Ghosts Hiding Inside Your WordPress Website

There could be ghosts inside your WordPress site right now, too.

But you’ll never know if you don’t know what and where to look.

Until it’s too late….  See this quick short video below

Our Site Has a Brand New Look!

A website is  like a haircut; you wake up one day and feel an urgent need for a change!

Well, that happened to me recently, I decided to change the look of this website. So I picked a new theme, added some images, and customized the look to my liking, all in a matter of a few days. I’m still in the process of fine-tuning it, but this makeover just feels so good!

WordPress grows with you!  Case in point, let me show you how this website has changed over the past several years:

This site is now using a theme called “Beautiful Pro Theme” from StudioPress (http://www.christinasresources.com/studiopress/). I picked this theme for several reasons:

  • the display area is bigger and has the modern and elegant look that I like
  • mobile responsive and displays beautifully on various devices
  • built on Genesis framework that I feel reliable and very customizable

You might have heard the term “web shame.” Once a site is up, many people just forget about maintaining it properly, ending up not feeling comfortable about sharing it with others at some point. They would say things like, “I have a website, but it’s now so old…,” or “Here is my website URL, but it hasn’t been updated for a while.”

Well, with WordPress, it’s not difficult to update the content or even to change the whole look by yourself!

Your website should grow with you…  and with WordPress, it can!

What is the “Featured Image” in WordPress?

Have you ever heard of the term “Featured Image”, but didn’t know what it was or how you would use it? Well in the WordPress post/page editor, there is an item called “Featured Image.”

It normally sits in the right-hand column towards the bottom, and many people do not even know it’s there. Plus, the name “Featured Image” doesn’t really help you to understand what it does.

Watch this video to learn more about this feature, and how you can use it to add accents to your WordPress site!

Put it in plain English, that’s the way to create or pick an image that represents that particular page/post. Different WordPress themes use this feature differently (some have this feature at a different location of the post/page editor), but typically, a featured image is the image shown as the thumbnail along with an excerpt of each blog post in the blog page.
