There is a good chance the problem has nothing to do with a user/login, but with the permissions set to the files. If one php-file has too many rights, and they know how to abuse it, you've got a breach like you've described. In normal settings, directories should be 0755 and files 0644. Directories which have changable content (need to put files in it) ...

I've had WordPress sites on Dreamhost get hacked as well. I was using their shared hosting package, and I'm assuming you are as well. The hackers got in by compromising another user on the server, then reading my wp-config.php (which had 0644 permissions, so world-readable), accessing the database and creating their own admin user in the wp_users table. ...

This should not result in any spam penalties from Google. You are not creating duplicate content - the post still exists only once on the site - so the only issue will be how Google recalculates the page based on the republished content.

Anyone can do what they like on their sites and as far as I am concerned and this should be okay, but that is not the reality in search. If performance is a priority, it is often best to choose a topic and stick with it. You can choose related topics that compliment the primary topic, and if done well, this could increase performance especially for long-tail ...

The dashes in front of the <urlset and <url> does not look right and should throw an error. As well, while the xsi: may be correct, I cannot tell you that Google will recognize it. You can find out what Google says about sitemaps here: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/183668?hl=en The Yoast sitemap is likely correct and I would trust ...

It's not really about Wordpress itself but about the theme you are using. Think of Wordpress as the skeleton of your website. It is there to provide the foundation and core functionality. Your theme is where the responsive/mobile functionality comes from. Most premium themes are now designed for desktop, tables and mobile. Most will also come with a Theme ...
