I am happy to announce the release of Login LockDown, a new plugin for WordPress, designed to help increase security and reduce the chance of someone hacking into your WordPress installation.
There was an issue with attempting to scan certain urls causing the scanner to fail. I thought I had fixed it, but found out it was still happening with requests to scan SSL (HTTPS) sites. I modified the way the urls are passed through the AJAX calls and everything appears to be working again. Please let me know if anyone encounters any more issues. 🙂
Due to some misconceptions that I have come across having to do with the Bad Neighborhood Detector tool, I need to clear up a couple of things. Let me say first and foremost that the tool is designed to help webmasters in determining whether or not they might want to link out to a particular website. It was designed to help reduce some of the effort involved with the manual checking process… the tool was not designed to replace the human decision making process in any way, shape, or form.
The Google Multi-Datacenter rank checker was offline for about the past 10 days due to a couple of issues, one of which was the structure of the table I am using to store the search history. As a workaround I made a blank copy of the table and archived all of the old data. Within the next week I hope to restructure how I am storing things and port the old data over to the new tables. The tool should work fine in the interim, please let me know if anyone notices any new issues.
Thank you Donna for prompting me to fix it. 😀
