WordPress – Vulnerability Alert

If you have a WordPress site, please take a moment to check your plugin directory to see if you have a folder called "revslider". If you do, please make sure that plugin is updated. Envato is offering the update for free download & can be accessed through a link from an Envato page that links from the attached article. (Link: http://codecanyon.net/item/slider-revolution-responsive-wordpress-plugin/2751380 )

The old Revolution slider 4.1.x plugin has a vulnerability. is a premium plugin that is used in many for-purchase themes. Unfortunately, it won't request to be updated if it was installed via a premium theme, so it's up to us to ensure our sites are safe.

Quick WordPress Tip

You could check all your external site links to ensure they will open in a new tab/window…

You can load this plugin and select the setting to have all external links open in a new tab/window — and it's set for good.

Easy peasy.

Easy PayPal Button

Say you don’t have time or money to create a website with a shopping cart, but you still want your customers to be able to quickly, and securely pay you online. If you have a PayPal account, you can create a button for your site that will allow your customers to click and enter the payment amount, then submit to you for payment.

Here’s an example of one. Give it a click!

To create your own code, log into your PayPal account and go to this page: Create a “Buy Now” Button

Select the link that says “Create your button now”, and then copy and paste the form code into your site page(s) where you want it to appear.

You’re done!

How to install a plugin

Note: I created this post for a former sub-site I created and used to manage but managing multiple sites took too much energy so I’ve been adding relevant information onto this site as I see the need to share it.

In this lesson, I install a Plugin called “FormBuilder”. This plugin enables you to easily add custom forms to your website to allow visitors to contact you. Consider pausing the video between steps and installing the plugin on your own site.

(I apologize for the low audio. This is why I usually hire my husband! He’s so good at recording audio and video & why I feel blessed to be able to work with him.)

The movie below may take a moment to load. It’s rather large. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Jean.
