WPWeekly Episode 160 – The Founder Of BruteProtect, Sam Hotchkiss

6 days ago79 minutes

In this weeks show, Marcus Couch and I are joined by the founder of BruteProtect, Sam Hotchkiss. We learn the circumstances which lead to the birth of BruteProtect and how it operates. Hotchkiss explains the details of the acquisition with Automattic and how it will be rolled into Jetpack. While some people are not happy that it's being added to Jetpack, we discuss why it's a huge win. Last but not least, Hotchkiss explains the process he went through to obtain funding and offers advice to plugin authors who may find themselves in the same position. Stories Discussed: WordPress 4.0 Adds Custom Icons to the Plugin Installer WordPress Plugin WP Inject Renames to ImageInject and Introduces New Features BuddyPress 2.1 Beta 1 Now Available for Testing Chris Wiegman on Why He Sold Better WP Security to iThemes WordPress 4.0 Release Candidate Now Available for Testing Plugins Picked By Marcus: WP Admin Quicknav adds a simple dropdown box at the top admin edit screens allowing you to quickly jump from one page, post, or custom post type to the next without having to return to the respective listing page. This is easily customized and can be really handy for saving time navigating to specific admin pages. Comment Approved can be used to notify a user when their comment is approved. This is a great way to keep the communication channel open between you and your loyal readers. You can customize the approval notification enabling you to reward those who participate. This could include an ebook, a link to special content, etc. WP Is Mobile Text Widget adds a text widget that switches the display text using the wp_is_mobile() function depending on whether the device is mobile or not. This is a great enhancement for delivering a simple, custom piece of text content based on the detection of a mobile browser. WPWeekly Meta: Next Episode: Wednesday, September 3rd 9:30 P.M.
