Site subject to multiple attacks; FHU booth

Our head is still above water.

Our head is still above water.

It appears we’ve been the subject of sustained attacks to the website. Best we can tell, the weakness has come through the market plugin we’ve used. That has been disabled. We’re in the search for an option that will serve everyone well. In the meantime, we apologize for the inconvenience.

If you go to the Freed-Hardeman University Lectureship, be sure to stop by and visit Barbara Anne at the Forthright Press stand in the exhibit area.



Site changes ahead, necessarily

A plugin puts the site at risk, so we look to change things.

plug in to booksThe FPress website has been down for several days, apparently from hacking, again. The estore plugin we’re using is a strong suspect for having opened a hole in the security. So we’re going to replace it. More work to come.

What direction we’ll take with the site is uncertain, but we’ll work to make sure it’s a good option for you.

We take this opportunity also to pray that this year will be a blessed one in every way, and especially for doing the will of God.


Can we pray for a website’s protection?

As well as pray for the hacker?

As well as pray for the hacker?

Pray for our siteOur webmaster tells us that the recent outages of the FPress site were apparently due to hacker attempts. He says they were unsuccessful, but it did take down the site for two separate periods, for over a day at a time.

Since we are a gospel service as well as a business, might it be appropriate to ask for prayer for the site’s protection?

The New Testament registers no prayers for websites, obviously, but as a part of the Christian arsenal, prayer will help us, in every good effort we make, to “be able to stand against the schemes of the devil” (Eph 6.11 NET).Read More


The first big step with new books on site

Well, we’ve made the first big step by getting all the FPress books into the shopping cart.

There’s still much to do: a proper theme to install, a few bugs to work out, and such, but the site is well on the road to being functional.

The shopping cart should be working. If you have a problem, please let us know.

Also please note the new books on the site by Phillip Eichman. It’s a pleasure to have his material on the gospel of Mark, the book of Acts, and the God who gives comfort in suffering.


Making a good move

We’ve moved the FPress website to our own server, which will provide us with some great possibilities.

For that to happen, we’ve got a lot of work to do. So the site may look messy for a bit.

But the final result will be good.

We’re already getting a shopping cart installed, and it appears to work. See above at Shop.

So a bit of patience, with a lot of work on our part, and we’ll all have a wonderfully functional site that will streamline orders and facilitate communication.

In our connected world, that’s a must.
