Okay, this is super geeky, but over on Delicious Brains, there is an article that talks about WordPress penetration testing. It gives some quick overviews on the tools available to find exploitable security vulnerabilities and reminds me of just how much information WordPress is willing to share with the world about itself.

I’ve tried WPScan before and found it to be a very powerful and interesting tool to use, so if you haven’t given anything like this a try, I highly recommend it.

The fork of WordPress called ClassicPress has gotten to its pre-one-point-oh beta release and it is looking pretty good. It even comes with a tool to migrate from WordPress to ClassicPress. If you want a successful competitor to WordPress that doesn’t include a huge learning curve and shows your disdain for Gutenberg, then check out ClassicPress.

Have you ever wanted your Social Media Icons to be in your WordPress menu bar? Sure, you could use some kind of plugin for it, or you could follow the instructions on WPBeginner? They still recommend using a plugin to get images in your menu, but you don’t have to use any plugins at all if you know some simple HTML.

That’s it for today’s WP Minute, thank you all for watching.
