JFBConnect v8.4.6 Released - Instagram and Facebook Compatibility Updates

JFBConnect v8.4.6 is now available. This release is primarily a compatibility update to support upcoming changes in Instagram and Facebook. At the end of October, some older API and widgets for both Facebook and Instagram will no longer work. Specifically:

Facebook Graph API v3.1 sunsets on 10/27. Versions of JFBConnect before v8.2.0 will likely no longer function with Facebook after that date.Instagram's embedded post feature has been overhauled and the current implementation will no longer work on October 24th. Once your site is updated to JFBConnect v8.4.6, you'll need to add your Facebook 'Client Token' in the administrator area to continue embedding Instagram posts on your site.

In addition, there were some other under-the-hood improvements and bug fixes, which you can see in the JFBConnect changelog.

We highly recommend updating to JFBConnect v8.4.6 to ensure your authentication and other social features continue working properly.

The Next Major Release Is Coming

This is the last planned version in the JFBConnect v8 series, which was originally launched in 2018. Version 8 has been instrumental for laying the groundwork for future releases. Over the course of v8 development, we've added a new plugin system to easily add more social networks (we now support 15), improved Open Graph and sharing support, more widgets and loads of other improvements and features. 

Version 8 was all about breadth.. more features for more networks. Version 9 will be much more targeted with large improvements to specific features, like automatic posting, easier configuration and Joomla 4 compatibility. We'll be posting more about our long-term roadmap shortly. Stay tuned!

3 Things You Should Do Right Now To Set Boundaries While Working from Home

3 Things You Should Do Right Now To Set Boundaries While Working from Home

No matter what happens with the Covid-19 pandemic, one thing is clear: Working from home is going to be with us for a while. In some cases, companies have decided their employees can work from home forever. Others have given their employees the flexibility to work home for the next year, or more. If you love the flexibility of working remotely, that's great news.

For a lot of people, however, working from home has been a challenge. I understand. I've been working remotely for years, and it definitely requires a high level of planning and organization in order to be productive

Part of that means setting boundaries between work and everything else that happens at home. If you won't do that, no one else will. If you don't create boundaries and systems that help you stay focused on what matters most, you not only won't be productive, you'll end up burned out--not just in your work, but in your life.

Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to create boundaries that will help you be productive, and help you thrive during this challenging time.

1. Shut the Door

Easily the most difficult thing about working from home is that you don't have the same physical separation between life and work. When you go to an office, you know you're there to work. When you work from home, it all runs together, unless you create a dedicated space to work and go there when it's time to get things done.

Hackers are exploiting a critical flaw affecting >350,000 WordPress sites

Hackers are exploiting a critical flaw affecting >350,000 WordPress sites

Hackers are actively exploiting a vulnerability that allows them to execute commands and malicious scripts on Websites running File Manager, a WordPress plugin with more than 700,000 active installations, researchers said on Tuesday. Word of the attacks came a few hours after the security flaw was patched.

Attackers are using the exploit to upload files that contain webshells that are hidden in an image. From there, they have a convenient interface that allows them to run commands in plugins/wp-file-manager/lib/files/, the directory where the File Manager plugin resides. While that restriction prevents hackers from executing commands on files outside of the directory, hackers may be able to exact more damage by uploading scripts that can carry out actions on other parts of a vulnerable site.

NinTechNet, a website security firm in Bangkok, Thailand, was among the first to report the in-the-wild attacks. The post said that a hacker was exploiting the vulnerability to upload a script titled hardfork.php and then using it to inject code into the WordPress scripts /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php and /wp-includes/user.php.

Backdooring vulnerable sites at scale

In email, NinTechNet CEO Jerome Bruandet wrote:

It's a bit too early to know the impact because when we caught the attack, hackers were just trying to backdoor websites. However, one interesting thing we noticed is that attackers were injecting some code to password-protect the access to the vulnerable file (connector.minimal.php) so that other groups of hackers could not exploit the vulnerability on the sites that were already infected.

How To Use Social Media To Make Money And Not Waste Time

How To Use Social Media To Make Money And Not Waste Time

Social media platforms can make a brand or break a person. The key lies in taking the best bits and opting out of the worst. It’s working out what actually makes a difference and only doing that. With an intentional mindset, success is possible.

Here’s how to use social media to make money without wasting time.

Don’t waste time

Definite, deliberate actions rather than mindless scrolling will mean your return-per-second is high. Don’t confuse busyness with effectiveness on social media. Without having a clear goal it will zap your time and your energy and you’ll have nothing to show for it.

Use it to produce in favour of consuming. Know the purpose of you being active on each platform. Develop acute awareness of when you are scrolling and checking instead of publishing and engaging. Follow as few people as you can, or don’t ever scroll the news feed. Limit your time to maximise productivity. Set timers whenever you are there, and stop when the alarm sounds.
