WP Block Admin Add Author To Have Admin Interface Access

I have a couple people who write articles from time to time sand after installing WP Block Admin they were unable to get to wp-admin anymore.

[quickcode:noclick]
$wpba_required_capability = ‘edit_others_posts’;
[/quickcode]

ClientExec Authorize.net Plugin Leaving Screen Completely White

It has been awhile since I have used ClientExec and the Authorize.net plugin. ClientExec has really come a long way and everything went really smooth until I tried to start testing processing credit card orders. I filled in a new customer and attempted to save a credit card for the new user and the screen would go completely white on submit and not do anything.

All of the following can be installed with yum:

yum install libmcrypt php-mcrypt curl
