Hopefully you have your Wordpress site a little more secure after reading my advice in an earlier post about the Admin privileges.

Now I want to tell you about another little trick for making your site hard on hackers. This little tidbit is something that you do before you load Wordpress. So if you already have Wordpress up and running, then you might want to keep this in mind for your next site.

Have you been hacked?

I hope not. If you ask me, it is an obtrusive and violating act of terrorism. And I hope that you NEVER have to experience it.

But we had better face it. Hackers are out there. Just waiting to find another victim. And we had all better be aware and try to protect ourselves.

So I’m going to give you a quick tip that might help keep you off of a hacker’s radar.

When I am attending various networking events and people find out that I create websites using Wordpress, I start receiving all kinds of questions. And I think it's great. I remember back when I was teaching myself ABAP (a proprietary programming language used in the SAP ERP system) and I am so thankful that my friend, Bob Johnson, was on the same contract. He had the patience of Job when it came to all of my questions.

One of the questions that I get rather frequently is about the "uncategorized" category. Specifically, why does Wordpress force this to be the default category?

I don't want to get into how Wordpress actually stores, and then retrieves, the content with regards to the database. That goes far beyond the scope of this short post. Just take this as a Wordpress truism, every post must have at least one associated category. Or perhaps a better way to put it, a post is assigned to a category. If you don't select one, then the default category is selected for you.
