Another week and another security problem with WordPress, sites were automatically updated with the patch to prevent any problems with an XSS vulnerability. Sites running Akismet were not affected so not a huge concern, you should check you are on the latest version though.

ManageWP launched a new events hub website which is pretty cool, you can use it to find or add WordPress related events near you.


This week saw the release of another free theme from us at ThemeFurnace, Exposition Lite is now available for download from the WordPress directory. This one is a traditional blogging theme for writers, simple and clean with large featured images and nice responsive design.
