    I don't understand - are you looking for someone to make responsive Wordpress themes for free, under your service name?
  2. Light Red = code removed Dark Red = code replaced Light Green = code added Dark Green = code replaced with If you are not familiar with the command-line and git, I would highly recommend you take a day or so to learn: https://git-scm.com/ https://git-scm.com/docs/git-clone (download code) https://git-scm.com/docs/git-add (add code to current working branch) https://git-scm.com/docs/git-commit (commit code to current working branch) https://git-scm.com/docs/git-push (push committed code on current working branch to a remote repository) (there's a lot more including merging, rebasing, cherrypicking, tagging, branching) There's a lot of different branching models but this is a good starter read: https://nvie.com/posts/a-successful-git-branching-model/
  3. I'm not going to encourage running unaudited code written prior to April 2014, released by unofficial sources, to run on a production server in 2021, without testing 😅

    Organise your calendar by hours and not days instead
  7. If you're getting a whitescreen, it typically means the server is not responding with only headers and no body. This is likely a server-side issue. Is there anything in the web server error log? Have you debugged this with turning on verbose error logging with E_ALL? https://stackify.com/display-php-errors/ Is your server storage full and unable to write session files? Is this an error state of an unrecognised user/pass combination - if so, account for non-happy paths to show appropriate user-friendly error messages
  8. Let's not put user passwords in query string (even if hashed). Create a unique token for the reset password with an appropriate timeout - you want this process to have an expiry so you don't get a replay attack for an account takeover. The issue is leaking password hashes (I hope U_password is a hash and not the raw string) in user browser history (and the request itself). Not a huge attack vector with these games, but let's do best practices. https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.uniqid.php
  9. Twitter, usually. I am a member of some Discord groups, but I rarely check them unless I am pinged with an @
  10. Before you hire someone, get someone to (respected, that you trust) to vouch for them - or at least ask for some reviews about the person on the forum. Anyone can self-report that they are reliable and competent.

    I have some cleaning to do, but otherwise it does the job!

    Crons are ok to use, generally speaking. Why do you strongly advice against them?
