WordPress book Digging into WordPress first looks
Going through the Digging into WordPress book which I just bought myself after completing a WordPress job. Yeay Go me! I find it well put together and easy to follow. However, this being the first post and all, I want to start off with a small note. I love WordPress, I've always thought I could and should write a book about it, not so much from a programmer's perspective but from an admin perspective. In any case, I'll be honest and tell you that I was hesitant at first to buy this book. I've heard about it for over a year, touted as best wordpress book ever, how great it is, and how if you use it you'll have rainbows and unicorns coming out of your ass singing hallelujah.
I intend to do section reviews and tell you about stuff I learn as I go along. Hope you join me, and I hope the authors don't take it the wrong way.
First off... page 38. "Security through obscurity" is not an accepted security approach worth peanuts. Don't even think that you're making your site "more secure" by hiding it in a sub-folder. If your site is worth hacking, it will not be protected by hiding, but rather by maintaining proper secure defenses against possible attacks.
