htaccess Force https

If someone comes to your site with a non-secure link it will not render as secure. You can add a couple lines to your htaccess that will force a secure connection. After the “RewriteEngine On” line, put the following 2 lines. Be sure to change “example” to your domain.


Add Multiple Google Captcha per page and disable submit button until verify

This will show you how to add multiple Google Captcha per page and disable the submit button until the user clicks and verify’s that they are not a robot.

First, we create the forms. You can follow along in the comments how to setup the ID’s that we will target later to render the Captcha

Second, before the end of your web page, we will include the required javascript from Google Captcha.

<script src=”” async defer></script>

Third, between the <head></head> tags, insert the following functions that will render your Google Captcha. Important things to note:

  1. there are test keys you can uncomment to test locally on your computer, but you must switch those to your own keys in production
  2. your function, “myCallBack” is called from the script you included above before the end of your file. You are going to do this in render mode, so that also needs to be in the script call above.

Above the myCallBack function, in the same script tags, place the following functions that will enable your submit button to be clicked when a user successfully clicks the captcha.

Finally, we need to disable the submit button before the user clicks on the captcha. Do that by placing the following at the end of your webpage before the call to the Google Captcha script.

And this is what it looks like all together. If you need to see other ways to render with other parameters, you can do so at Google’s documentation.

WP Admin – You do not have sufficient privileges.

To harden an old WordPress site, the first thing I did was change the table prefix to something other than wp_

But that somehow turned every user from admin to subscriber, now I was locked out. And when I tried to login, it redirected me to the homepage, not the wp-admin section. Here’s what I did:

First, grab this script, put it into a php file named, force-upgrade.php , by Mark Jaquith and upload it to the same directory as your wp-config file. Then visit that directory/force-upgrade.php It will prompt you to run the script. “Hopefully that does the trick.” – But you still need to change your permission via phpMyAdmin, skip past this script to do that.

To change your role to admin, edit the following sql script to what you need and run it in the SQL tab in phpMyAdmin
