WPlift (finally) has SSL for the entire website. It did take me all morning communicating with Siteground, Sucuri, and MaxCDN – but it works! A big up for their support. Let’s Encrypt itself is easy to install, but the combination of having a Firewall, a complicated .htaccess file and a CDN was causing some troubles for me. For the moment we have switched off MaxCDN, but I will dive into that on Monday. Will keep you updated.

Unfortunately, the REST API vulnerability that WordPress 4.7.2 addressed has affected hundreds of thousands of WordPress sites. If you haven’t already updated, you need to update RIGHT NOW.

There’s also an interesting new plugin from Vectr that allows basic embedded editing in WordPress.

And if you’ve ever wondered how direct plugin sales compare to Code Canyon, one seller shared some data.

Let’s get to all of this week’s news…
