WordPress 3.6 Beta 1

WordPress 3.5.2 is now available. This is the second maintenance release of 3.5, fixing 12 bugsThis is a security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately. The WordPress security team resolved seven security issues, and this release also contains some additional security hardening.

The security fixes included:

  • Blocking server-side request forgery attacks, which could potentially enable an attacker to gain access to a site.
  • Disallow contributors from improperly publishing posts, reported by Konstantin Kovshenin, or reassigning the post’s authorship, reported by Luke Bryan.
  • An update to the SWFUpload external library to fix cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. Reported by mala and Szymon Gruszecki. (Developers: More on SWFUpload here.)
  • Prevention of a denial of service attack, affecting sites using password-protected posts.
  • An update to an external TinyMCE library to fix a cross-site scripting vulnerability. Reported by Wan Ikram.
  • Multiple fixes for cross-site scripting. Reported by Andrea Santese and Rodrigo.
  • Avoid disclosing a full file path when a upload fails. Reported by Jakub Galczyk.

We appreciated responsible disclosure of these issues directly to our security team. For more information on the changes, see the release notes or consult the list of changes.

demoflick

Based out of Boston, Massachusetts, DemoFlick came to us when their website was not reflecting the high quality explainer videos they were producing.

They laid out three goals for us to accomplish:

1) Show off their work more prominently.
2) Increase Conversion
3) Allow them to update their portfolio easily.

By placing quick contact forms throughout the site along with call to action buttons we’re confident DemoFlick’s conversions will increase. We took our custom design and created a WordPress theme with custom post types that will allow DemoFlick to update their portfolio.

wordpress-3.5

On December 11, 2012, WordPress Version 3.5, named for jazz drimmer Elvin Jones, was released to the public. For more information on this enhancement and bug-fix release, read the WordPress Blog, and see the Changelog for 3.5.

For Version 3.5, the database version (db_version in wp_options) changed to 22441, and the Trac revision was r23171.

WordPress 3.6 Beta 1

The problem we’re trying to solve is that we don’t want our client to have to remember that the URL to edit their site is /wp-admin or /wp-login.

We want our client to be able to go to a simple URL such as /login. How do we do that?

First, we need to open .htaccess. If you’re not comfortable working within .htaccess we would not suggest going forward. If you are comfortable and know where to find it then it’s as simple as one line of code.
