    Reset Instagram Password Spam / perishablepress · Wednesday, 16 December - 05:08 edit

For the past year or so, I’ve been getting TONS of email spam from Instagram. Asking if I want to reset my password. The problem is, that the email I use at Instagram is private, and exclusive to Instagram. So there is no way of knowing, no way for anyone to know, my Instagram email address. There is only one possible conclusion: Instagram is spamming its own users. Time for an experiment I’m going to do some further experiments with […]

    Customize BBQ Firewall / perishablepress · Tuesday, 24 November - 00:41 edit

BBQ Firewall is a lightweight, super-fast plugin that protects your site against a wide range of threats. BBQ checks all incoming traffic and quietly blocks bad requests containing nasty stuff like eval(, base64_, and excessively long request-strings. This is a simple yet solid solution for sites that are unable to use a strong Apache/.htaccess firewall. BBQ is kept as lightweight as possible, so there are no options or settings to change default behavior. Based on years of feedback, the default […]

    Opera and Brave Blocking Legit Images and Files / perishablepress · Monday, 26 October - 21:06 edit

The Opera and Brave browsers are blocking many legitimate images. Thanks to the Opera settings “Block Ads” and “Block Trackers”, lots of legitimate (non-ad) images are broken. For Brave it’s the setting, “Block cross-site trackers”. The reason seems to be that the blocking feature in Opera and Brave is determining (at least in part) if images should be blocked based on the page URL and file name. More specifically, any image that includes a phrase such as “ads” or “google” […]

    Code Snippets to Customize WordPress Sitemaps (Complete Guide) / perishablepress · Wednesday, 23 September, 2020 - 18:14 edit

By now most have heard about the WP Sitemaps feature introduced in WordPress version 5.5. From what I’ve read most existing sites that needed a sitemap already had one via one of the many free sitemap plugins. But for new WordPress sites going forward, having all the sitemap code in the WordPress core now means that new sites have the option of rolling with the default WordPress sitemaps, or use a dedicated plugin to do the job. This post is […]
