  1. What are the best plugins and or functions to use to protect my blog and that won't screw up thematic/thematic child themes? Almost 2 months ago, I updated wordpress, and when I did I lost everything because someone had hacked my blog prior to the update and I was not aware of this. So it has taken me all this time to get my site back up and running and I want to prevent this from happening again anytime soon. So all advice is appreciated!

  2. some of these might be helpful:

    i mentioned the DB-manager in your other thread. weekly (or however often) backups are a lifesaver when the shit hits the fan.

  3. Helga,

    I went to that site and downloaded a few things, I also downloaded dbmanager. DBManager keeps showing this error at the top of my wordpress......

    Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public

    To correct this issue, move the .htaccess file from wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to wp-content/backup-db

    Well I went into the folder to fix this..... there isn't a htaccess file in the folder to be able to move it. I do have the option checked to see all my "invisible" files, but that file either doesn't exists or isn't showing for whatever reason, so I can't move it.

    Any suggestions?

  5. Hi,

    try these two plugins:

    WordPress Security Plugin – block scrapers, hackers, and more

    WordPress plugin to prevent bot registrations

    I'm using both plugins on all of my blogs.

  7. Chris,

    I downloaded and tried to install those plugins, but I'm getting this message....

    Incompatible Archive. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

    Any suggestions?

  8. Downloaded and unpacked both files without a problem. Have you tried WinRAR to unpack the files? (.. using v3.93 here)
