The WP Minute – Episode 39

Show Script
This is Malcolm Peralty here from PressTitan and this is The WP Minute, Episode 39

While this isn’t really news, I did find a cool History of WordPress over in the resources section of Kinsta’s website. It covers how it all started, some major players throughout its history and more. I’m really impressed with the page they’ve put together, but I think they missed out on mentioning some major players in the early days of WordPress, just like most articles written about WordPress.

Did you know that I started using WordPress when it was version 0.72? That version was released over 15 years ago!

Over on WPBeginner, they have an article that talks about the top 11 reasons why WordPress sites get hacked and how to prevent it. There are some great tips in there, including making sure you have a strong password and making sure you keep WordPress and your plugins and themes up to date.

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