A very common reason for downtime or compromised websites is down to a feature in WordPress called XML-RPC. XML-RPC is used as a remotely accessible publishing tool using an offline blogging tool. This was very popular in the early days of WordPress when broadband speeds were much slower, as it made publishing much faster. However, these days it is very rarely used and causes far more problems than it solves.
We’ve always been believers in small changes that make a big difference, so today we launched a pretty handy tweak to our breadcrumb navigation bar. Here goes.
When there’s a job to do on one of your websites, you want to get in, get on and get it done, right? Well, the good news is, that’s even easier thanks to our latest STORM update.
It’s always good to have the tools you need right at your fingertips, and that’s what so many of you say you love about STORM. We designed our dashboard to be completely customisable, with a whole list of handy tools you can pick and choose from – putting your favourites front and centre, every time you log on.
The majority of the development time on STORM is spent either working on improving existing features or making them easier to use. The rest of the time we spend experimenting with completely new features. To give you an idea of what is on our roadmap, here is a brief update of where STORM is headed...
We built STORM to put all the control you need, right at your fingertips. One dashboard, one view, one intuitive toolkit for managing your websites, super smoothly. Today we’re taking a closer look at one of those tools – the ability to turn websites off, and on again, in just one click…
As some of you may already know, we've had the deployment feature in development for over six months. For those who don't know, deployment allow you to deploy your code directly from a particular branch and repository from either GitHub or BitBucket. This means your code can be on the server in seconds instead of having to use an FTP or SSH client to upload your files.
We want to shape STORM for you, our loyal, brilliant users and web-wizards. There are three features that are on our radar that we think you'd really benefit from having in STORM, and make web development that extra bit easier.
Our latest feature is now live in STORM, and it's a good one! 😃
