I think the best way would be to integrate the shop in the current site (therefor under the same domain). SEO: One domain for both would strengthen that domain (all links lead to this domain, so they are not splitted between info site domain and shop site domain). Usability: Visitors could switch seamlessly between info pages about the company and the shop,...

No. The canonical element is supposed to resolve duplicate content issues on your site stemming from multiple URLs that pull up the same content. Telling the search engines to go to two different places off the same page totally defeats the purpose. My guess is the company is having some issues internally. It might be their CMS builds composite pages from ...

Bruteforce hashes You could bruteforce the hash that is stored in the database. WordPress uses phpass for hashing. Per default, WordPress does not use blowfish or similar, but just md5 with an iteration count of 8192. If you just want to find really bad passwords, bruteforcing is certainly feasible. But I would consider this a rather big violation of ...

The intelligence of the blocker is down to whatever extension or software the user is using. Some will simply block adsense, while others may be configured to read a white list, or black list configuration. Typically a site with its own ad-network shouldn't be a problem unless the site is used by hundreds of thousands of people, then you may have people ...

To answer your question: no, it should not pose a problem for SEO. Why not - given that ashx has nothing to do with images, you ask? Because of the MIME type being sent with the file header. The .png file ending is actually not what determine what the browser has to interpret, but rather the file headers of the HTTP request. The file headers sent when the ...

There are several PHP microframeworks that allow you to create a simple application with "pretty URLs" by defining the available routes: Slim Flight Limonade Glue For example, this short Limonade app would respond to requests at the root domain (example.com/) and at the specified route (example.com/hello): <?php require_once 'vendors/limonade.php'; ...

I can't think of a single good reason for doing what you describe. (Caveat: we obviously don't know exactly what your dev was thinking.) Even if the two "sub-sites" somehow had such different requirements(eg. for the templates) that they'd need this much segregation, WordPress has multi-site capabilities that could break them up under a single ...

You can see an example Here http://chicagos.co This website has all the keywords and stuff like that, but it does not appear on google even if you type the domain, check the source code. chicagos.co doesn't appear in the SERPs because you are redirecting it to another domain!? chicagos.co does a 301 redirect to chicagospizza.co chicagospizza.co then does a ...

Any used framework under the hood has no effect on the SEO. What it matters SEO wise is the front-end (on Site SEO), and the off-site SEO. Generally any structural, mark-up, content changes have their own effect on SEO. Such changes can be done even with no underlying technology change. For sure changing framework can't affect off-Site SEO. For on-site, if ...

I can definitively tell you that it's not a good idea to use a custom CMS. I've worked in a web agency in the past (late in 2006) where we've build a custom cms that we deploy for many client. From the beginning it was a really good idea because current developper really know the cms, we can do every thing we want in every way we want. But, time passing, ...

Most ad blockers block 3rd party content from domains that are known to host ads. If you are using an ad server to host non-ad images, your images will got blocked whenever an ad blocker is used. I have not run across an ad server that does not use any 3rd party requests. Ads are typically served via 3rd parties so that: You don't have to deal with ...

I'm not sure that this is even possible. When you select your password, it's stored hashed in database. There's no reverse enginering when comes to hash algorithms. In my experience, script for password strenght is located in www.example.com/wp-admin/js/password-strength-meter.js, and this is the link to it. You can change levels and percentage for ...

All the answers suggested I would do as well. If you want another level of security I would enable Apache Basic Authentication http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/howto/auth.html with a username/password on your admin URL within Joomla (make sure that this URL is https accessible only). This is done within your httpd.conf file whereby you generate a ...

duplicate content by itself is not 'bad for SEO' (unless it's done on purpose to manipulate search engines). It has a slight effect in that the SE may decide to crawl, say, 1MB from your site today, and duplicate files will mean that less of your site gets crawled. The other effect is that, when the search engine decides that your page shows as a result of ...

I suggest you follow what Microsoft, Apple & Amazon do - list Taiwan as Taiwan. It makes good business sense as it doesn't offend anyone in Taiwan and at the same time isn't making a statement supporting independence. You are simply abbreviating a name - which happens already. Why offend a nation of 23 million people who have their own currency and ...

When you publish a page to a target, and this page contains pending changes in workflow, Tridion will publish the last checked-in version of the content (or "Major" version) unless you own the pending changes - workflow is assigned to you - and the current target's Minimum Approval status is lower or equal to the content's approval status. What this means ...

It is doable, but at some point, especially if you want to customize things, some coding will factor in. At this point, your best bet would be: The CMS Platform: Wordpress CMS base, handles users, comments, tags, categories, WYSIWYG interface eCommerce, Sales: Woo Commerce Plugin ecommerce, integrates with Wordpress For Events/Activities: ...

You must make sure that this site is unavailable to search engines. The best way to do this is to put the entire dev site behind a login mechanism. Basic Authentication is the simplest and most effective way to do this. It makes it impossible for search engines to crawl but is easy for developers/users to access as they only need to enter a password once per ...

Yes, in the latest version there is a feature called Layouts which is available by default and lets you drag and drop components in a custom layout. A layout is made of rows and columns, and you can map them to a custom grid framework like bootstrap. Then, with the Layouts module you can create Blueprints which are reusable layout elements. So as layout is ...

The good news are that you can change users passwords, the bad news are that you cannot see them.Wordpress is so powerfull that even in the database it stores the password with one way encryption it's not just an md5 hash you can convert, it's not even serialized data, for the password test123 you would get something like $P$BjW8o9Dm1vC5bwAcP1iAdNVm0lbvn, ...

As the passwords are hashed, the only way to test their security is to brute force them. Gather a list of commonly used, weak passwords and test them against the hashes stored in your database. Unless you use a very exhaustive password list this won't catch all of the weak passwords, but it will filter out the weakest of them.

So, it's the same old story. But, first, there are few things to do: Firstly, scan your site with some antivirus tool. Then do this: Upgrade all components/plugins Upgrade your Joomla on latest version Limit the upload of files only to allowed extensions (e.g. .pdf, .doc, .docx) Maybe put some additional stuff before upload (let's say captcha or some ...

Yes, you can do whatever you like with theme that you have. You've purchased it (or it's free). As long as you purchased it or if it's free, you can do whatever. Just make sure that you make a child theme out of your theme. (there are tutorials for this on wordpress community) That's because if you (in your example) edit functions.php without making a ...
