WordPress Exit Box finally released!


I finally got around to making the final touches to my latest WordPress plugin: Exit Box. It was released an approved in CodeCanyon just a couple of days ago.

Exit Box is actually a remake of my previous release WordPress Exit Strategy. While Exit strategy will send outgoing links through the famous Exit Page, the latter uses a jQuery loaded Exit Box to display the exit page contents.

Wordpress Exit Box

Most of Exit strategy features were ported to exit page, including Share&pass, a feature that can allow a visitor to skip the redirection delay by clicking any of the social buttons included with the plugin (Facebook, Twitter, and Google+)

While both plugins can be perfect for any uses, Exit Box will be smarter if you are using it to display a “you’re leaving our website” message. A visitor just close the box to return to the previous page. Exit strategy on the other hand will perform better with ads in general.

TagGator Pro WordPress auto tagging plugin

I started developing TagGator back in 2009, initially I wrote it for personal use as I could not find a plugin to do the job. a little later I cleaned up a copy and submitted it to wordpress.org, it was approved and it got some very nice comments and feedback from the users. Now, alomst 3 years later, I started writing TagGator Pro.

TagGator Pro is an auto tagging plugin. it scans your posts for some keywords, and then tags these posts based on the result.

Other than what the free version offers, TagGator gives you the following features:

  •  Automatic tagging for new posts.
  • Scanning for multiple keywords per tag. (finding any of a set of keywords results in applying one tag).
  • Scanning Post titles for tags.
  • Works great with Feed aggregators and auto blogging solutions.

 

TagGator Pro is now available through CodeCanyon for only 12 USD. Get TagGator Pro now and never manually tag a post again!

WordPress Exit Strategy.

You think you’re running your WordPress site at its full potential? So, what’s your Exit Strategy?

What happens when a visitor clicks a link to an external site? They just leave?? Then know that you’re leaving money on the table, losing potential customers, and wasting possible social bookmarks.

WordPress Exit strategy is a plugin to redirect all external links in your posts through an exit page. Your exit page design and contents is what sets your exit strategy. Place ads, social bookmarking buttons, and links. You can include the outgoing link in your exit page, auto redirect to it, or make it appear after a countdown timer.

Still don’t see why you need a WordPress Exit Strategy?

  1. Monetize outgoing links with ads on your exit page. Or offer them for rent on your favorite ads market.
  2. Get more social bookmarks. Place your social bookmarking links on your exit page. Gain an extra stream for social interaction.
  3. Protect your SEO score. Linking directly to external websites will leak some of your SEO points to the Linked page. WordPress Exit Strategy will protect you from this with its “nofollow” links.
  4. Offer alternative contents or websites, and you may bounce you visitor back into your website.

exploitable timthumb.php in your wordpress website

The other day, I received this email from my hosting provider:

This is a courtesy notice that we have found exploitable timthumb.php file(s) on your account. It is highly recommended that you update these files to the latest available version to prevent possible compromise. This is best done by updating all scripts, plugins, modules and themes on your account to the latest version.

As the owner of the account, you are responsible for keeping your hosted content free of malicious software.

The timthumb.php file is a script commonly used in WordPress’s (and other software’s) themes and plugins to resize images. The exploit allows an attacker to arbitrarily upload and create files and/or folders on your account, which can then be used for a number of malicious tasks, including but not limited to defacement, browser high-jacking and infection, data harvesting and more. After a site has been exploited, it may lead to becoming labeled a “Malicious Website” by Google or other security authorities.

Any timthumb.php file below version 1.35, but above version 1.09 is considered vulnerable, unless patched. To prevent being compromised, we advise you update all instances of timthumb.php to version 2.0, or patch the existing vulnerable files. Note that patching the files requires more in-depth knowledge of the PHP scripting language.

Which was funny because all of my wordpress sites are (kinda) up to date. I dug some more to find that this file comes with many themes AND plugins, and you will have to batch them all.

The way to fix this is simple.

– open your hosting control panel and select file manager.

-find the search method and look for files named timthumb.php

-use the edit function to edit each file. replace its contents with contents of the following file http://timthumb.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/timthumb.php

-make sure to go through all copies of the file

 

That’s it. you are safe now 🙂
