I’ve long been a fan of the Themed Login and Register Plugin, which allows you to customize the look of your member login, as well as the notices it sends to users.
However, the plugin has not been updated in about 2 years. Some things are not working correctly (for example, you are supposed to be able to change the “from” address from the standard firstname.lastname@example.org to anything you like, but in fact all this does is change the sender name of the email, not the address itself.)
Recently I visited James Kelly’s site, and noticed that the bottom of the page is filled with spam links to “Cheap Airline Tickets” links. It would appear his site has been hacked.
And I just allowed Automatic Update to update my copy of this plugin.
I am concerned about using this plugin now, since it seems the site has been hacked.
Does anyone know anything about this? Is James Kelly still around, or still updating his site? Is there a good alternative to his original plugin? It was incredibly useful…
