Hi,
Just joined today. Although I've got  a baby (Daisy) who is keeping me very busy, I will be carrying on with my technical author work as I need the money although trying to avoid making mistakes is going to be my biggest challenge as my eye-lids don't seem to want to stay open for very long!
I'm also looking at WordPress for a second time just as a way of chronicling Daisy's progress but had a bad experience first time when my email inbox was hacked via the comments moderation system and my website was wiped out with Godaddy because the hacker found all my login details etc.
I know Softaculous makes WP easy to install (WP's 'famous' 5 minute install had me baffled for a while) but are there any security plugins to stop hackers? I want to allow comments especially those that say how lovely Daisy is but once bitten ...
Thanks,
Helen

Current versions of WordPress come with Akismet installed by default. Akismet uses a unique algorithm combined with a community-created database to "learn" which comments are comment spam and which are legitimate.

Of course, if the problem isn't spam, you can disable comments via Discussions.

In your Dashboard, go to either Pages or Posts, locate the one you want to edit, and click on its title. Then, locate the Discussion module on the edit screen and to prevent any kind of discussion and comment, uncheck both boxes.

Hope this helped.
