Security risk? (2 posts)

    I'm fairly new to php/understanding plugins, but isn't this a security risk? It displays WP admin user name!

    function fpp_get_post_author($post) {} (in fpp_index.php)

    Not necessarily. Usually the main poster on a blog is also the admin so if your posts show who wrote the post then it is also showing the admin.

    If it is really a concern you could create a 2nd user who is the author of your posts and have a different ID who has the admin role

    Most hackers trying to force your site if you use the old default of "admin" so you should really change it.
