Common WordPress Security Issues & How to Secure Your Site
Last night I was invited to speak at the Boulder WordPress meetup.

I have a whole other course about what WordPress developers should do to keep WordPress secure.

These concerns are why we use the “Post name” option for WordPress permalinks here at WPShout and encourage most of our clients to do the same.
Understanding VPS vs Shared Hosting for WordPress
