While troubleshooting some issues with pwntcha which is installed by default on Backtrack Linux version 5 R3 I received some errors compiling pwntcha from source. The Imlib2 development files need to be installed before compiling pwntcha from source on Backtrack Linux 5 R3 or Ubuntu 10.04. Below I provide the output from the pwntcha compile errors as well as show the install command for the package that needs to be installed before pwntcha will compile without errors.
After upgrading a bunch of WordPress plugins on a site I noticed that comments were not functional on my site for users that were not logged in. This can always be tricky because if someone reports comments not working to the WordPress site administrator they likely will be logged in when they test the comments and think there is nothing wrong. Anyhow if comments are throwing an error and you have the SI Captcha Anti-SPAM WordPress plugin installed then the below content will assist you to resolve the problem.
After upgrading the Fast Secure Contact Form plugin for WordPress you should definitely test to make sure things are working properly because you likely will receive an error when submitting the contact form if you are using the built in captcha. The error which is explained in more detail complains of not being able to read a token file. Below we describe how to quickly resolve the Fast Secure Contact Form captcha error.
I have been using the iPhone Analytics App available via the iTunes App Store for quite some time. It allows you to view all of the sites you have configured in Google Analytics in a very clean interface on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Recently when logging in I have been getting an error that my username and password are incorrect. The issue appears to be that Google recently modified the way others can access the web analytics data and have now provided a new API so the developers have mentioned that they are completely rewriting the application and will launch a new version in 2 to 3 weeks. The developers also have offered a refund to anyone asking though I would suggest everyone to hold on as they are being up front and they have the best Google Analytics application for the iPhone.
I have been adding some additions to WordPress to lock it down a bit and keep regular users away from wp-admin. There is a bunch of stuff out there to do this type of thing but I found the best combination to upgrade your register/login system and to keep the average user away from wp-admin so they stay on the site was to use Register Plus and WP Block Admin. They both serve different purposes but combined together they provide a much nicer user experience.
Register Plus: This WordPress plugin will allow you to create custom emails to users, a custom registration form, a password strength meter, a captcha, user registration verification emails, and more. When creating the custom registration form you can add custom fields, add custom CSS, etc. All in all in provides complete customization of the registration form and process.
