What’s your choice for wordpress security techniques to protect against attacks?

This question was asked by Autobots.

Answer from Joel Reyes :

That’s easy, stay up-to-date with your WordPress plugins, database, widgets, and versions. As newer versions come along, the old ones become easier to hack. The newer ones of course, are a bit harder since they haven’t been out long. So make sure you stay-to-date and you should be good.

How can i display more than one twitter feed on my wordpress blog?

This question was asked by Rollback999.

Answer from Autobots:

We do this by accessing the persons Twitter account RSS feed, then fetching it and embedding it on your site.
Replace the example RSS’s with the ones you’d like.

get_item_quantity(3);
$rss_items = $rss->get_items(0, $maxitems);
?>

    <?php if ($maxitems == 0) echo '

  • No items.
  • ';
    else
    // Loop through each feed item and display each item as a hyperlink.
    Foreach ( $rss_items as $item ) : ?>

  • <a href='get_permalink(); ?>'>
    get_title(); ?>
