WordPress.com Security Incident

Automattic has reported that there was a recent security incident which could have potentially made account passwords visible.  If you have a WordPress.com account it is highly recommend that you update your password.

NOTE: This does not affect self hosted WordPress sites, but it is still a good idea to update passwords from time-to-time.


How Do I Add A Contact Form On WordPress.com?

Q: How Do I Add A Contact Form On WordPress.com?

A: On the standard version of WordPress.com your only built in option is to use the “[contact-form]” short code.

To do this, place “[contact-form]” (without the quotes) in your page where you’d like it to appear and save it.

Once saved you’ll see a form show up that looks similar to your standard comments form.  Note that this will look differently to anyone who is logged into WordPress.com.

If that doesn’t suit your needs and you’re after a more customizable solution you’ll need to look for hosted form solutions of which there are various options.  And of course, you can always opt to go the self-hosted WordPress.org route.
