Security upgrade

7th Sep

We’ve just upgraded the Wibsite to the latest (and greatest, and ratest, and … I’ll stop) version of WordPress. A security problem in the old version has caused quite a bit of consternation of the the last few days and an upgrade was definitely needed. It looks like it’s worked OK, but if you notice anything strange please let us know.

I’ve also had a good prune of what looked like spammy user accounts. If you suddently can;t log in it’s because, basically, you look like a reconstituted meat product. But take heart! A quick email to the Wibsite administrators will set you back on the slightly wonky and narrow.

And as if that’s not enough, there’s been LOADS of work put into the statistics for each blog. The full details are on my website here, but here are some screenshots of what you have Right Now waiting for you.

    COOL :) It looks GREAT!

    Although slightly disturbing that since a recent walk along Studland beach, I’m getting naturist searches….

  2. Thanks Chris, it’s looking good. I assumed when I was getting odd messages earlier that you were in the middle of upgrading the elastic bands.

    Great apart that it won’t let me log out when I press the log out bit.

    Hi Tractor Girl. Do you get any kind of error message?

  5. Tractor Girl says:

    No error message, just takes me back to the dashboard

    I have installed the plugin but nothing happens. Am I missing any steps Chris?

    Hi Peter,

    Have you installed the Wibstats plugin in a normal WordPress site? I’m afraid at the moment it will only work with WordPress MU.
