    Scott brought up a bunch of attacks on his site, mainly the dreaded DDoS/brute force stuff. Scott presented on security plugins, including:

    • “better wp security” has a “hide backend option” that will hide the wp-admin, redirecting the user to a 404. Make sure your .htaccess file is writeable!
    • looked at sucuri scanner
    • wordfence
    • You should change the admin username from “admin”. Scott showed how to do this with phpmyadmin.
    • Don’t use wp_ as the table prefix.

    Scott looked at woocommerce as an ecommerce plugins; using it for user level based pricing.

    Andy did an extensive overview of git version control. Thanks Andy!

    I got there a little late. We helped a new attendee (sorry, didn’t catch his name) with some color and typography issues. Andy Staple worked with his css file to make the type and the line-height bigger. We learned about Gravity Forms and Mailchimp plugins. We discussed the Oct. 20 WordCamp event.
