I had a WordPress page which was restricted (private) for a year, and then, based on server access logs, I noticed it was accessed by a Yahoo bot:

68.180.228.94 – - [22/Oct/2014:03:56:09 +0100] “GET /s34/ HTTP/1.1” 200 19513 ”-” “Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Yahoo! Slurp; http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/slurp)"

I heard reports of the Yahoo bot being very aggresive and causing heavy server load. Probably, combined with an automatic WordPress update and heavy database access, something got corrupted and the page was rendered public. I wasn’t able to find other cases of private pages becoming public, but it’s not excluded.

Is this possible at all?

I’m listening. Sounds cool.

A third-party membership plugin could be used with eCards, I’m only interested in adding these features directly to eCards. I might create a limited user role, such as “eCards subscriber” and store them as separate users.

A user option is okay, I guess, with a custom text such as “Subscribe me to future updates”. However, admins could abuse this option and change the text, so that they can save all user emails against users’ wishes.

Which plan are you guys using? Share host or vps?

Shared, no need for VPS for theme/plugin demos.

Based on your comment, this is not a WordPress plugin, so you cannot install it. It’s just a stadalone script.

Sorry for flagging, but you shouldn’t put an affiliate link in the forums. I use Hostgator for my hosting – they have the best support in my opinion.

No problem, I understand. HostGator are the best in my opinion, and they are becoming more and more flexible with their server configuration. PHP is selectable from 5.3 to 5.5.

Lots of users requested user emails to be saved in the database when using my eCards plugin. While this is a privacy issue, and user emails should not be stored in the database when sending a simple eCard, I’m wondering if I should add an option to store them.

The only details to be stored would be date, sender, recipient and post (eCard) ID.

Should I do it or not? Is it a serious privacy issue or is it the buyer’s responsibility to add an explanatory text and terms of service?

My recommendation would be my own roo! Framework plugin:
