Emrick: Primer, you claim “every other CMS” allows this
Straney: I should say examples
Stanwood: That was the first thing I tried
Clemons: Bc you claim it’s so standard
Showman: Primer: a CMS does not provide some file upload “portal” – you’re thinking of GoDaddy’s file manager lol
Ouchi: And it did everything I expected
Tarter: Well thats CMS made simple
Whedon: I bet it’s way limited lmao
Buchman: But it was shot down as “too complicated”
Riggan: Primer, it sounds like you need to change your viewpoint and stance.
Nolfe: Seems like you’re way behind lol
Hostettler: Get them on a static ip, open up a random port for sftp
Uhl: In all actuality, i think many folks in here “can’t believe what they are reading” in your responses heh
Gamlin: And i mean that out of all the respect in the world heh
Base: I guess everyone has their own world
Brodhead: In my world, FTP is ancient
Ours: No, you have standards and then there’s your world described by your comments
Roadcap: Primer, get a “designer” who can code and use git then
Chanley: I’m sure such an argument would not fly in your world either
Parmantier: If I had a coder tell me they demanded to create files for their theme via the cms, and won’t use git, i’d tell them goodbye
Lokan: Primer: ftp is insecure, it’s superceeded by sftp
Devivo: Primer, what argument is that? and “my world” consists more of just myself.
Lis: In my world, the web server can’t write to the do***ent root, but that’s another concession I had to make
Dukich: Anyhow, thanks for your time
Bedsole: I guess it’s sftp then
Ratner: Well i sympathize with whoever your clients are lol
Hauff: SFTP can besafe if yuou make it safe
Showman: WP world shouldn’t have the doc root writable either
Cordas: Don’t use port 22, whitelist IPs, etc
Showman: Stop blaming things on WP – it’s unrelated
Lokan: To be fair, everyone’s world consists only of themselves ; some just make concessions to accept and or allow another’s to be present and coexist.
Dokken: This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years
Yorks: And i thought yo usaid no plugins. maybe i was mistaken.
Heerdt: Is what I was looking for, but that plugin hasn’t been updated in 2 years, but it seems it’s fraught with exploits
Shy: No, I was looking specifically for a file management plugin
Aschim: Well a port is open to the world jsut by you having a site
Deklerk: If your site got compromised, then i have access to your files via your plugin
Grappo: So i mean, we can what-if all day :
Longueville: And yes, I understand that such a plugin could open a whole new can of worms
Schanding: What if opsec decides to run for president?
Loyd: But for now it’d only be installed to get the demo site done
Lokan: Crisumi: john mcafee is standing in for me.
Brundrett: Primer, i think everyone in here would agree that’s an awful way to go. just a heads up from folks who are deeply involved with WP while you are experimenting with CMSs in general
Pedrozo: I would fire your “designer” who codes lol
Brinkmeier: Crisumi: I can understand that you guys want to set a standard, given that most people using WP are going to be using some sort of simple hosting i.e. FTP
Schueneman: Halcom to do with “setting a standard” from the WP community
Kintigh: It’s more of ANY community
Lokan: When someone blames software or technology on their own lack of knowledge or understanding. it’s chuckleable.
