Currently I'm searching for the holy grail - a website platform that combines eCommerce functionality, social (Facebook/Twitter) functionality, a variety of nifty plugins, allows you to use other themes (themeforest), and has an easy to use interface that clients can use.
I was thinking of using wordpress as a base, then adding the following plugins:
-Woocommerce: online store and opt-in form for a newsletter
-Simple Facebook Connect: for interaction with Facebook
-Contact Form 7: contact forms
-Any decent theme from Themeforest
My main worry in all this is that the online store will become vulnerable because of the other plugins or themes.
I think that this is an issue that interests many people, although I've had trouble finding a forum post that answers the following questions:
1. Is WooCommerce secure (as of April 2012)
2. Does WooCommerce STAY secure once you add other plugins
3. Does WooCommerce STAY secure if you use another theme for most of your website, and is that a workable model?
Many thanks in advance for your help!
