    I applied a few updates to the site’s plugins this evening and deleted a few seemingly spam registrations. There’s a few more updates that need to be applied but I wanted to warn folks first.

    1. An update to WordPress itself to 4.9.3. The site might go down for a few minutes sometime next week.
    2. We’ve been running with a discontinued SPAM filter and the fake registrations are starting to get annoying. There’s an alternate filter that will require a bit more during new user registration, but I think it will be worth the hassle. I’ll do this after testing with the new version of WordPress.

     

    That’s all for now. For those in warmer climates, safety fast!

    Well, after applying the updates that I thought would have no effect, blamo! several of the pages disappeared. So I did the one thing you should never do in that situation. I applied more updates.

    In the end, we are now running the latest WordPress (from above) and the blank pages are fixed. So scratch item 1 above, only the SPAM filter left to sort out.

    Thanks Stephen!

    This afternoon, I deleted about thirty new spam registrants. I’ve been keeping a log of all the spam domains that have been hitting us. If that info will help your work, let me know.
