Found some malicious files in the server’s file system. Mostly phishing files that I wouldn’t have known if I didn’t have to ftp some files.
So… Deleted everything and reloaded an old backup. Lost a few posts but that’s okay. Deleted all unused/ unnecessary plugins. Converted one to shortcode in the child theme and updated everything. As safe as it gets.
Anyway, pretty sure, the files weren’t uploaded via a compromised wordpress/plugin but a server vulnerability. The joys of shared hosting, eh?

After letting this domain stay unused for over a year, finally working on it.
This new WordPress default theme, Twenty Thirteen, is really good. Bold colors and new features. BTW, if you are using it, don’t forget to install the Jetpack plugin and ALWAYS use child-themes for modifications. You might have to search and learn a few new things but trust me, makes life much easier in the long run.
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Skills Used: WordPress customization and plugin development, PHP-MySQL, HTML, CSS
A WordPress project for a big client. The requirements were simple but having a team, on their end, drafting out the requirements and regularly refining them meant there were a lot of tiny customizations and requests along the way. All in all a job well done. Enjoyed working with them.
An extremely simple and elegant website for a client from Liechtenstein. Opted for a one-page website as there wasn’t much content. PHP was used to create the dual language files for easier future changes. A breeze of a project since the client’s requirements were precise. Continue reading Project: Relax Area→
A long project which was built up in stages. The brain-child of a young entrepreneur, a video viewing site where the user is awarded points for watching videos. These points can then be exchanged for discount coupons for brands and stores.
This project was a lot of fun and a great learning experience for me. Everything was custom built for this project. The UI, admin section, the vendor logins, account creation & verification, the fluid ajax redemption process, the custom built youtube player skin, the sms gateway integration etc.
Since I am completely broke this time around after some heavy purchasing, a painting should suffice. For the world’s best kid/little sister. Not exaggerating. She seriously is the best (although at times gets on my nerves. Hahahaha).
In a lot of ways, she does seem to be one of the main reasons why I still doodle/paint.
