As your website grows, the idea of sharing a single administrator account becomes harder to sustain. Large sites usually have a team of collaborators, which may include content writers, product pricing and inventory managers, event schedulers, and yes, super admins who can do everything.
With so many cooks in the kitchen, it’s important to set up user roles. Each person should have an account that’s tailored to their duties on the site, and only allows them to access the parts required to do their job. User roles protect both your site’s security and its integrity.
WordPress comes with several default user roles for teams to use, which makes it easy to get started with accounts. But you can take things even further and create custom user roles as needed. Let’s dig in to all the options.

When you install WordPress, it automatically sets up a login page for your website. That page lets you access the dashboard as an administrator. So, knowing your WordPress login URL is essential if you want to make any changes to your website.
The WordPress CMS (content management system) uses a standard login URL for most websites (unless your web host changes it), so usually this is pretty simple. But it is possible to change the WordPress login link and hide it so no one else can access the admin dashboard. If you lose that, things could get a bit trickier.
In this article, we’ll talk about how to find, change, and hide the WordPress login URL.

Selling digital products is an excellent opportunity for store owners, bloggers, and other content creators alike.
Digital downloads — like eBooks, music files, images, sewing patterns, and fonts — work well as standalone purchases, or as add-ons to physical products or services. For example, if you sell music courses online, you might also sell digital sheet music. Or if you crochet baby toys, you could sell downloadable patterns for those who also enjoy crafting.
The best part is that they help you generate revenue without having to worry about things like inventory, shipping, and storage. Once you set up your digital products, there’s very little maintenance involved.
And if you already have a WordPress site, getting started is simple and straightforward. Let’s take a look at how to sell digital downloads with WooCommerce, along with some best WordPress security practices.

Challenge #1 – Are You Lucky?
Challenge #2 – Blocklist Bypass?
Challenge #3 – License to Capture the Flag
Challenge #4 – License to CTF: Part 2

For more than ten years, Jetpack has been regarded as the ultimate all-in-one toolkit for WordPress sites. With more than five million active installations, Jetpack makes sites faster and safer, and provides more traffic, all from a single plugin. It eliminates the need to search for dozens of different plugins, vet their quality, install them, make sure they don’t conflict, and remember to update them.
But we also appreciate that the WordPress community is incredibly diverse and that everyone’s needs are unique. Many developers and site owners asked for the flexibility to use specific components of Jetpack as part of their own, custom-built “tech stack” of plugins. We listened.
“The WordPress community is passionate about being able to control exactly what is installed on their sites,” says Jetpack CEO James Grierson. “The new Jetpack plugins will provide that flexibility, as well as enhance the overall WordPress experience.”
