SEO: typos on purpose. Seriously.

Speaking about niche arguments, typos, seo.

Trying to reverse the Google page rank algorythm sitting on the wc using my cell phone is one of the things i like more.

Client side Html Injection with firebug

As described in another article, you can use Client side html injection techniques basically for two reasons:

  • cheat on your friends
  • send variables

In this example we will send some vars to a php page predisposed in order to show all POST vars, then we will apply this technique to the ebay homepage to apply a filter to the search form.

WordPress and “ALERT – configured POST variable limit exceeded – dropped variable” issue

ICustom Grunge WordPress Logot may happen in several hosting environments to discover this line in your webserver error log:

ALERT - configured POST variable limit exceeded - dropped variable 'name_of_dropped_variable' (attacker '20.2.26.212', file '/several dirs..../wp-admin/post.php'), referer: http://sitename.tld/wp-admin/post.php?post=181&action=edit

Well i discovered and solved this situation:

Cause: It is caused by PHP suhosin

you can “locate” it on your disk it using the “locate” command as follows

(if it is first time you use locate) type:

# updatedb

then type:

# locate suhosin

for my machine (debian) it is located within /etc/php5/conf.d/suhosin.ini

so you can edit it by typing:

#nano /etc/php5/conf.d/suhosin.ini

Now, look into your suhosin.ini fìle until you see the followings vars:

suhosin.post.max_vars

suhosin.request.max_vars

You want to remove the comment symbol “;” from the very beginning of these two lines and the increase the default value (it should be 200) to at least 500 in order to make complex wordpress themes working properly.

Remember to kick apache2 typing

#/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
