First off, we’re really sorry about not keeping a consistent layout. In my last update, we were forced to change the theme in order to make it compatible with our community plugin, BuddyPress. Sadly, after a week of use, we’ve learned the following: free compatible themes with BuddyPress are limited and buggy, nobody used BuddyPress much, and BuddyPress has way to many security holes. We’ve been having hundreds of bots registering ever since we’ve installed BP and there was no way to stop them, even the best of the security bot-blocker plugins were useless.
We’ve gone back to our old pals at Digitalnature and giving their ATOM theme a whirl. It’s basically a cleaner and more customizable theme than our previous favorite, Mystique. We’ll most likely be sticking with this plugin in the long run if issues don’t pop up. Thus far, everything has been smooth sailing.
Does anyone known any good WordPress security plugins and bot-blockers just in case? We’re desperate to find some good ones.
