Security settings adjusted to prevent spam posts

While I appreciate Ugg boots as much as the next guy, the random postings of ads on our website in the form of spam posts has been an issue I’ve tried to tackle for some time. The security setting that allowed for these spam posts to be posted was the same security setting that allowed for users to post classified ads; I couldn’t disable one without disabling the other. I have added a plugin to our website that seems to prevent the spam posts from being posted. I’ve also created a test user with the same security settings as a regular website user and I was able to post a classified “test” ad. The right side of the website will now only display the most recent classified ad postings as opposed to the spam posts. If anyone has any problems posting an ad after this action and the recent classified ad maintenance, please feel free to contact me.

Classifieds ads back online

The classified ads are back online. All the text of ads are there, but if you had photos attached to the ads, you may have to re-upload your pictures to your ads. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Website Update and Post Removal

I have updated our website to WordPress 4.0. This update is mainly an “under the hood” update, but if you see anything that does not seem to be working please let me know. I have also removed any non-classified post from the site as the vast majority of these posts were spam.
