WordPress Update

WordPress 4.8.2 is released. Time to update core files again. Keep them current, and stay secure out there!

If you would like to know what the changes are (and they are always good…WordPress is one program that doesn’t send out updates unless they actually accomplish something, and it’s typically quite a bit!) …you can read about them here: [su_permalink target=”blank”][/su_permalink]  Just for a highlight, I will say that on the SECURITY side, there are 5, (not 1, but FIVE) cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities plugged in this update. So for security reasons alone, you should update. Not to mention that there are typically great functionality upgrades as well. Don’t forget to backup first, before doing any CORE updates (and themes also usually) …the FILES AND THE DATABASE! …just in case something doesn’t work right with your server. The one time you don’t do a backup, you will probably  need it, because that’s just how life works. 🙂

October Deadline: Non-SSL sites will be flagged INSECURE

October Deadline: Non-SSL sites will be flagged INSECURE

HTTPS-Secure[edsanimate_start entry_animation_type= “rollIn” entry_delay= “0.5” entry_duration= “1.5” entry_timing= “ease” exit_animation_type= “” exit_delay= “” exit_duration= “” exit_timing= “” animation_repeat= “1” keep= “yes” animate_on= “load” scroll_offset= “” custom_css_class= “”][edsanimate_end]You probably heard about this, but probably thought what happened was already done and over with. It’s not. There is an October deadline when all Google (I.E. CHROME) browsers will flag all non-SSL sites as insecure. In order to not be flagged you will need to have a certificate installed, activated, and configured so your site redirects to a HTTPS:// URL prefix instead of HTTP. If you want to read an article about it, here’s one (you can Google it and find more I’m sure) google-reminds-website-owners-to-move-to-https-before-october . It is supposed to only flag websites that have password or credit card form fields on the site.

But, it is also important to recognize that even if you don’t have password or credit card form data fields on your website, it is still beneficial to install SSL on your site for the SEO benefit alone. If Google is penalizing the page rank for non-encrypted sites, and they are, you really can not afford to not install it, can you? Do you want to be on page 4 or 5 when people search for your type of business on Google? Because if you don’t put SSL, your website will go to the end of the list. Sorry. Don’t shoot the messenger.

There are many different types of SSL certificates out there that you can get for a whole range of prices, ranging from $10 to $500, depending on your need. The ones that come from your host tend to cost more. If you just want a cheap one, you can get one here: . The $4.99/yr one is only if you purchase that cert for 3 years, for around $15 total. If you just get it for one year, it’s $8.95 I think.

Everything I.T. will install one for $75.

It’s Finally Here! iOS Sceensharing!

It has been a long time gripe that Tech Support has been able to jump on and help anyone, anywhere, …-as long as they were not on an iPhone or iPad. It was a limitation of Apple, not the apps or programs that provide screen-sharing abilities. Apple wasn’t willing to break that security, no matter how secure the app. But I guess Teamviewer, which is fully encrypted, and the only HIPAA compliant app/program, somehow got through to them finally. And Teamviewer notified us that has changed today. Supposedly Teamviewer now fully supports iOS devices. I’m dying to test it out and see if it’s fully functional. So if you have an iOS device and want to do a quick test with me, LET’S DO IT. Give me a call, or just let me know in a post, comment, or whatever floats your boat. 🙂 Here is the link to the new version of the Teamviewer app (or just get it from Apple on your device)

I KNOW who a couple of you are, by the way…not all, but I do know some of you who I haven’t been able to help on your mobile apple devices…hopefully, this is a new era. Yay!
