Michael Mann Web Design became Michael Mann Web Design & Development in the interim, but is now just Mann Web Development. While I still provide design services, my main focus going forward will be development to encompass both design and development. The new site colors are blue and orange, with a revised logo. The site is in the process of being revamped, cleaned and thoroughly scrubbed.
For those who have been using my monthly maintenance plan, something will be changing starting today. These changes will improve the service, as well as the communication around this offering. Starting today, instead of the previous schedule of web site update checking happening once a week, the checks will take place on a daily basis.Continue reading “Daily Web Site Update Checkups”
Now, through the end of 2017, I will be offering free WordPress cleanup services for web sites. This comes with zero strings attached, including zero offers to upgrade or purchase any of the services I currently offer. This is a love gift, giving back to the wonderful WordPress community and is available regardless of whether you are a current or past customer, or someone I just met through this offer. I will retain no site information beyond the assistance I provide, as is customary for my business, unless that information is permitted by the client and is kept as securely as I possibly can. It is not my intention to use this free service to acquire new customers.Continue reading “Free WordPress Cleanup for Your Web Site”
WordPress 4.8.2 is the second security release under the 4.8 release of WordPress. This fixes some core issues, as well as the following:
$wpdb->prepare()can create unexpected and unsafe queries leading to potential SQL injection (SQLi). WordPress core is not directly vulnerable to this issue, but we’ve added hardening to prevent plugins and themes from accidentally causing a vulnerability.
The training arm of Michael Mann Web Design is growing. In the past, I operated under two distinct sites: WPbyMe and OS4Me. One was for WordPress based training and the other for all things Open Source Software related.Continue reading “Training Arm of MannWD”
The upcoming My Simple Theme is nearly complete, so I decided to push it on for use here on Michael Mann Web Design. Kicking the tires, I found a few areas where some work could go into improving things. Development is nearly complete and this site will serve as a model site for what is possible with the first theme to be released to the public by me. Enjoy!
