I'm a small business web designer and marketer. I do a little of everything, and I'm always interested in learning new techniques and technologies.

That could definitely work. It's one more thing to remember which isn't necessarily ideal, but it would save me from fighting with TinyMCE.

comment Best Way to Enable Two Step Authentication
I've seen a couple examples where the second factor is given on a second page after the initial authentication. I prefer that UX, but if you do that, I think you pretty much have to use your own authentication cookies (or server side sessions) which, as you say, is not for the faint of heart.

comment Best Way to Enable Two Step Authentication
Thanks for the ideas. Those are really interesting. I'm using HTTP Digest authentication for some extra security on the admin area already, so that's good. I wonder if emailing the password would create another issue though. From what I understand, email isn't the most secure means of communication.

Thanks. That's good advise. I really like that plugin, but I would also like to avoid an extra fields on the login form. Although, I can't really see a way around that.

comment Selectively Disabling PHP via .htaccess in Root Directory
@Wyck, thanks for the input. Could you maybe explain why it wouldn't make any sense?

comment Selectively Disabling PHP via .htaccess in Root Directory
Maybe I'm missing something, but as I understand it, the root dir .htaccess will disallow direct access to any PHP file except index.php. This will cascade into subdirectories, so you override it with the .htaccess in wp-admin to allow the admin panel to work normally. It's basically an extension of the practices described here and here.

Won't the allow from all directive in the wp-admin .htaccess allow the admin area to work?

comment Security and Must Use Plugins
Thanks for the explanation. Of course, simply uploading a file doesn't guarantee the web server will execute it in the WP environment where you can access $wpdb, but, as you say, replacing functions.php or a core file would easily accomplish that.
