How To Secure WordPress configuration file

secure-wordpress

Web site running on WordPress has many benefits over other Content Management Systems, and the most important is wp-config.php file that contains very sensitive information about your WordPress installation, including your database detail, table prefix and Secret Keys.

So this file should be secure from hackers because they can find the valuable information stored in the wp-config.php file.If someone get access this file, he can get website database username and password, he could log in and undo everything that you’ve built! Therefore, take whatever steps you can to secure that file so that no one can access it.To do so, follow these steps:

How to protect your WordPress wp-config.php file:

Protect it the .htaccess Way

Josiah Cole wrote a nice htaccess tutorial on modifying your .htaccess to protect the wp-config.

Here’s the code from  Digging Into WordPress:

# protect wpconfig.php
<files wp-config.php>
order allow,deny
deny from all
</files>

After updating your  wp-config.php, Change file permission (chmod) on wp-config.php to 640.

Move the WP-Config file to a secret folder

If you move the wp-config file to an unpredictable location and change the code, it would create a problem every time you upgrade WordPress. So there is a better solution, create a separate PHP file in a non-WWW location and add the location of WP-Config file in it. On the following link you can find detail about How to create PHP file and add secure location it: Protect WordPress wp-config.

When it comes to create or Convert WordPress into multiple WordPress sites, Look at this tutorial “How to enable Multi Site feature in WordPress 3.0?“, which tell you how to set up everything. Here is an other tutorial which tell you what you need to do to activate the multi-site ability and get through the set up and domain mapping process “How to do domain mapping in wordpress multiste network“ , and Domain mapping without Plugins. There is one Plugin onWordPress directory Plugin Commander, by using this Plugin you can manage all WordPress Multi Site Network Plugins at one place. Now compiling a list of WordPress Plugins to manage Multi Site Network.

If you are new to WordPress Multisite or have been using it for years,  these WordPress plugins are best for the latest version of WordPress 3.2. They help you to manage your sites on your network easily. You can tweak your CMS specially can maintain and manage its privacy.

Moderate New Blogs

If you are running MultiSite network and after registration new blogs  will wait for moderation. No registrations slip through without your approval. New blogs(aka sites) await a final click from a Super Admin to activate. Keep blog registration enabled and open, keep Super Admin email notices enabled.

Download

Toggle Meta Boxes

This plugin will not hide meta boxes added, this plugin toggles meta boxes for all users and all blogs regardless of Cap/Role (only SuperAdmin can override the limits of the plugin however).
WP3 multisite mu-plugin. Go to Site Admin–>Options to “Enable Administration Meta Boxes”. Meta boxes (post, page, and link edit forms, and dashboard) are unchecked and disabled by default. Extra options to toggle the Quick Edit buttons, Media buttons, Screen Options and Help links.

Download

Menus

Enable or disable WP3 Multisite Backend Menus. Adds options to toggle administration menus at Super Admin->Optons page under “Menu Settings”. WP3 already toggles the Plugins menu, I’ve added a bunch more in the same/similar way.

Download

Multisite Switcher

This plugin adds a simple dropdown menu in administration header that allows you (and every site users) to switch between administration of every site they are member of (and so work for super-admin, admin, contributors,…).

Download

Proper Network Activation

Some plugins have an install procedure that is meant to be run only on activation. However, when you do a network activation, that install procedure is only run for the current site. So, you end up with plugins not working properly on all the other sites.

What this plugin does:

  • when doing a network de/activation, it triggers the de/activation hook on all sites in the network
  • when creating a new site, it triggers the activation hook for all active network plugins on that site

Download

Multisite User Management

Running a WordPress network? You no longer need to manually add new users to each of your sites.

With this plugin, users are assigned a default role for each of your sites. You determine the default role for each site under the Multisite User Management section of the Network Admin | Settings page.

You can assign different roles for each site or keep a site private by assigning no role.

Download

More Privacy Options

  1. Blog visible to any logged in community member – “Network Users Only”.
  2. Blog visible only to registered users of blog – “Blog Members Only”.
  3. Blog visible only to administrators – “Admins Only”.

Mulitsite SuperAdmin can set an override on blog privacy at “Network Privacy Selector” on SuperAdmin-Options page

Multisite SuperAdmin can set privacy options at SuperAdmin-Sites-Edit under “Misc Site Options” as well.

Download

Exclude Plugins

This plugin will allow you to selectively show or hide certain plugins from the normal WordPress user in Multisite, as opposed to showing or hiding all plugins at once.

Download

Activate Update Services

For some reason WordPress removes the Update Services ability (under Settings – Writing) when you create a Multisite network. Activate this plugin to get it back.

Download

WP Multi Network allows cape wearing super admins to create new network collections of sites, allowing for infinitely extensible site, network, and domain arrangements.

How to Improve WordPress WebSite Navigation menu

Smart-Breadcrumbs-Wordpress-Plugin

A navigation menu is a listing of links displayed on your site.Well structured website  navigation and organized content give a  site good conversation to the site visitors, which help them to quickly find what they are looking for from the first moment they enter your blog. Navigation links can be links to pages, posts, or categories within your site, or can be links to other sites. As well, you can define navigation menus on your site through the use of the built-in feature in WordPress called Custom Menu and Appearance Menus Screen.

These are very easy techniques  to improve the navigation of your blog and visitors will find more blog’s content, which ultimately give your blog more traffic.

Add Breadcrumbs to WordPress Navigation


Navigation trail by using BreadCrumb NavXT Plugin

Breadcrumbs typically appear horizontally across the top of a web page, usually below title bars or headers. They provide links back to each previous page the user navigated through to get to the current page or—in hierarchical site structures—the parent pages of the current one. Breadcrumbs provide a trail for the user to follow back to the starting or entry point. A greater-than sign (>) often serves as hierarchy separator, although designers may use other glyphs (such as » or ›), as well as various graphical treatments.

Typical breadcrumbs look like this:
Home page > Section page > Subsection page or Home page >> Section page >> Subsection page

Customize WordPress Next and Previous Links


There is a << Next and >>Previous links at the bottom of each and every WordPress powered home page. This should be links to page 2, 3, 4, and 5, with options to jump to the end, the next 5, or back again. Otherwise with default WordPress << Next and >>Previous links, to get to “page 5″ you have to click 5 times. That’s either going to make visitors leave your blog pretty quick, and keep a lot of users from getting to a lot of your content. To solve this problem, You should have a linked list of pages (like google) that says “this is page 1 of…” and links to “2, 3, 4, 5, etc”. It’s easy to fix this with plugins like WP-PageNavi or WP-Page Numbers.

<div>
 <div><?php previous_post_link('&laquo; Post before this: %link') ?><br /></div>
 <div><?php next_post_link('%link &raquo; Post After This') ?></div>
 <div style="clear:both;"></div>
