Identifying, Removing, and Preventing Malware on Your WordPress Site

If your site has been infected, it is generally because some vulnerability has allowed a hacker to take control of your site. The hacker may change the content of the site (for example, to add spam), or add additional pages to the site, usually with the intent of phishing (tricking users into parting with personal and credit card information). Alternatively, they may inject malicious code (malware)—for example, scripts or iFrames that pull content from another website that tries to attack any computer that views the page.

The term “malware” covers all sorts of malicious software designed to harm a computer or network. Kinds of malware include (but are not limited to) viruses, worms, spyware, and Trojan horses. Once a site or computer has been compromised, it can be used to host malicious content such as phishing sites (sites designed to trick users into parting with personal and credit card information). Some hackers may even take administrative control over a hacked site.

If your site is listed as badware by Google or another StopBadware data provider, follow the steps below.

Turns your WordPress blog into a fully featured Deal site

Running a Deal site like Mighty Deals and Design Shack is a very profitable online business, because most of the designers have to spend a lot of time on search. And on Deal site you can provide unbelieveable offers and discount for creative professions. The deals must be included products and services that are heavily discount, exclusively for premium customers. You can negotiate with the provider to ensure you are providing the best deals for designers.

Here come the WordPress which is the best CMS  which help you to create any niche of website. If you are interested to run deal site than Daily Deal theme is by far the easiest and cheapest way to create a deals site. It includes everything that a user would need while creating such a site. All you have to implement the Daily Deal Theme from Templatic. Before giving you a visual tour and see what this theme has in store for you, see  live examples of deal sites like Mighty deal and Design Shack.

Mighty deal is the best site in this arena that requires no registration or membership fee, and access to our daily deals is free for all users. They recommend that their visitors sign up for our free newsletter as these deals are available for a very short time only and when deals expire.

Design Shack

Design Shack showcases inspiring web design, alongside resources and tutorials for you to succeed in the same way. They only offer the cream of great design, filtering through lots of the redesigns that occur every day across the Internet, and cataloguing the greatest projects out there – perfect for getting that spark of creativity going again.

Daily Deal Theme


You can build a complete site for deals in just a few hours using nothing but the all-powerful WordPress and with this theme. Running a Deal site is a new concept and you can create beautiful design and focus on content – the deals  with this theme. Daily Deal is a complete theme with built in functionality for submitting, approving, displaying and buying deals.

Daily Deal Theme Features Tour

The homepage is finalized after many iterations. When it comes to sites like this the deals should be the center of attention- we did just that. The homepage displays how much time is left to grab the deal, product details, sharing buttons and the Buy Now button. Visitors can just click on the “Buy Now” button and buy the deal. An account is automatically created and username and password are sent to the email address. The homepage by default lists only one deal, but if you want, you can also list more deals. To do that just add a new widget to that area.

The listing page displays all the deals from that particular category. Three tabs are displayed – All deals, live deals and expired deals. Just like the names suggest, “All deals” will display all created deals, “Live deals” will display active deals and “Expired deals” will display finished, expired deals. Using the sidebar users can search for a particular deal. Below the Search there are regular widgets like Member Dashboard, categories, subscribe, etc. Just like with any (Templatic) WordPress theme – sidebar is all yours to experiment with.

Those who want to submit deals can just click on the “Submit deal” link. A form is provided where users can fill out all the information about the product and submit their proposal for the deal. If the admin finds that deal interesting he can activate the deal and only then it will be visible in the front-end. After submitting the deal an account will be automatically created and login details will be sent to that user’s email address.

Visitors who like the deal can buy that deal by clicking on the “Buy Now” button. After that, users can sign in or sign up (create a new account). Now they need to fill out the form, provide the shipping and billing address, select the payment gateway and complete the payment procedure. We have tried to make this process as simple as we could.

Now coming to the backend part. The backend is feature rich with various advanced options. We covered a lot of areas, we’re hoping you’ll never need to edit the code. “Design settings” will let you customize the look and feel of your site. “Custom fields” will help you add a new custom field in case you want to add a new input field for the user. And there is the Reports page that displays a complete report for sellers, transactions and deals.

How to Customize and Add Custom menu in WordPress Theme

As a WordPress theme developer, You must know how to add and configure menus in your theme. If your current theme does not natively support menus, don’t be panic, In WordPress 3.0, you’ll gain build in feature in admin screen under your Appearance menu called MenusNavigation Menu is a theme feature introduced with Version 3.0. WordPress includes an easy to use mechanism for introducing customised navigation menus into theme.

Register a menu for a theme


In order to incorporate menu support into your theme, you need to add a few code segments to your theme files.

  • register_nav_menu(): Registers a single theme location.
  • register_nav_menus(): An array of locations to register.

Open your function.php file, to register a single menu called First Menu, and add following code in it:

add_action( 'init', 'register_my_menu' );
function register_my_menus() {
  register_nav_menus(
    array('first-menu' => __( 'First Menu' ) )
  );
}

first-menu is the slug which will use to identify the menu in code. First Menu is the label which use to identify the menu in the admin.

Building off that example, we’ll create multiple menus, which is not much different than registering a single menu.

add_action( 'init', 'register_my_menus' ); 
function register_my_menus() {

register_nav_menus( array( ‘first-menu’ => __( ‘First Menu’ ), ‘second-menu’ => __( ‘Second Menu’ ))
);
}

Turn on nav menu options:


There are two option to ensure that the theme turns these menu options on, One is by calling wp_nav_menu() within a theme template file and second by using Navigation Menu widget .

Adding locations to your Theme files

After registering a menus for your theme you can call them in  header.php file, If you want to display menus in an other place of you theme, simply call a nav menu as bellow:

<?php wp_nav_menu(); ?>

If you want more control over you themes menu, call it this way.

<?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'first-menu' ) ); ?>

You’re allowed even more control. wp_nav_menu() has several parameters you can use when displaying a menu.

  • theme_location: The menu to call that is associated with the specific theme location.
  • menu: Call a specific menu ID, slug, or name.
  • container: The element that wraps around the list. The default is div but can be changed to nav if you’ve moved on to HTML 5.
  • container_class: The CSS class of the container.
  • menu_class: The CSS class given to the unordered list. This defaults to menu.
  • fallback_cb: A function to call in the event that no menu items have been given. By default, wp_list_pages() will be called.
  • before: Text that is displayed before the link text but within the link.
  • after: Text that is displayed after the link text but within the link.
  • link_before: Text that is displayed before the link.
  • link_after: Text that is displayed after the link.
  • depth: How many levels the menu should display, which is useful for things like drop-down menus. This is set to 0 (any level) by default.
  • walker: Allows a custom walker PHP class to be defined to create the menu.
  • echo: Whether to display the menu or return it for use in PHP. This defaults to true and displays the menu.
