Anyone has FV flowplayer video player installed on their WordPress site?

There's an XSS vuln that allows an unauthenticated attacker to inject potentially malicious JavaScript code which will be executed in admin’s web browser. A security advisory for that – https://www.webarxsecurity.com/flowplayer-video-player-xss-vulnerability/

WordPress page on Custom Site issues

Hello,

I have a website hosted on my own server with wordpress on it for a blog page.

I have added in the websites navigation bar to the themes header.php file and included the css files. This works correctly.

However when I make posts on the blog the unformatted html for the navigation bar shows at the top and non of the links to the other pages work.

How can i fix this?

Site got infected. Uploaded clean backup and it’s still there. Strange.

Hey guys, today a client's website got infected with some random adware redirect. Fortunately, I had a clean backup on file. I uploaded it via FTP and it's still redirecting to this adware. Any ideas on what it could be? I have no idea.

Best practice to keep site operational while making changes

I'm looking to create an online store but need assistance with maintaining the site.

What is the best option for keeping the site online while making changes to the site?

I've seen people suggest working on the site offline or creating a subdomain for sandboxing. If so, what are the best programs and tutorials to make this happen?

Are there ways to work on part of the site and update only the changes as opposed to having to upload the entire site?

Any help is appreciated!

Looking for a plugin that allows me to create a front page with a message on it. From there & an ‘enter site’ button.

My site currently has a static front page. I’m now ‘shutting down’ the site. Leaving all content as is. However now want to create a new front page without changing anything on the site itself… hope this makes sense… hopefully there’s a plugin out there that allows me to create a new first page, put a logo & a message. Enter site button that leads to my site with the static from page. Any help is much appreciated.

wordpress site displaying pure php

so i recently uninstalled and reinstalled apache2 on my raspberry pi after i encounted massive issues with my letsencrypt certificate when it tried to renew. long story short, i had a bad hash, corrected it, apache broke.

i removed apache, purged but didn't touch /var/www (gotta keep that)

now for some reason though when i go to my website (now https works!)

i get the following: <?php /** * Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn't do anything, but loads * wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme. * * @package WordPress */

/** * Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it. * * @var bool */ define( 'WP_USE_THEMES', true );

/** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */ require( dirname( FILE ) . '/wp-blog-header.php' );

i've tried checking mySQL but i don't really know what i'm looking for there.

This is Apache 2, raspberry pi3 running raspbian.

any help would be great!

Is there a plugin that enables people to post their photos (via Facebook or Instagram or otherwise) to my site?

Hi,

I'm basically looking to start a website that serves as a hub for the art community.

One page will have my curated posts.

Another will be a more community driven one, where anyone can post their own pieces (thru fb, ig, or whatever) and have it be on the page automatically. Sort if creating a rolling feed of community content. Ideally people can also engage with other's posts through their Facebook or Instagram accounts to comment. Does anyone know if this is possible?

Also as an aside, I'm completely new to making a website. Should I be using WordPress for such a project or should I be looking to use more user friendly platforms like Wix?

TYIAV.
