I’ve moved. Again.

Only a few weeks ago I moved the site domain and now the hosting has moved too. Tsohost, a UK hosting company, has great support and is excellent value for money. But you get what you paid for and I’ve remained frustrated at speed problems with my site.

Resetting WordPress Two-Factor Settings

The Two Factor plugin for self-hosted WordPress sites is an excellent way of improving the security of your site. There were plans to move this into Core last year but this hasn’t happened – to be honest, I suspect it may be due to how unfinished it currently is, in particular it’s not very user-friendly.

One such “unfriendly” feature is that once you set up a third party authenticator app (which you do via a QR code) there’s no option to do it again – switch phones or apps and there’s no way to set this back up again.

How to change the front size in a Jetpack Contact Form

The Recent Bluehost Network Outage

At the weekend the popular WordPress host (and recommended by WordPress.org) Bluehost had an outage for approximately 12 hours. This affected many customers, including the Automattic owned WP Tavern website.

Somebody asked why WP Tavern was on Bluehost and not one one of the WordPress VIP hosting packages, to which Matt Mullenweg replied…

I like to have things on each of the hosts that .org recommends to get first-hand customer experience, both the ups and the downs. So Tavern is on Bluehost.

Matt, WP Tavern

Now, isn’t that a REALLY good idea?
