Great news! We know that theme editing has been an often requested feature and we’re excited to announce we have implemented this feature.
To avoid manually creating a child theme we are now using a free plugin from WordPress.org that creates child themes and allows you to edit them. We needed to tweak our system a bit for the plugin, but it now works perfectly.
You now get the simplicity of using the default WordPress theme editor but with the security and safety of automated theme updates.
To find out more read the full instructions on how to use the theme plugin in our Help Center and let us know you what you think.
As another step toward better platform security, we’ve just added a new feature that removes and disallows adding of malware domains, listed by MalwareDomains.com. Malware domains are domains with a history of being used to propagate malware and spyware on the internet.
This greatly improves the safety and neighborhood of existing blogs on EBN.
This is the error you will see if the domain is listed in their database:
In the majority of cases, this is an issue of the previous owner so you will need to request removal from the database. You can do that by contacting them here.
We’ve also added this information to our Help Center article.
