First I do not know if this is an issue with WordPress or not. So let me explain the issue I have.
I run through bluehost and have Sitelock to monitor my web page, which uses WordPress. I was to,ld by sitelock that I needed a security upgrade because my page contained to many web page URL’s.. So I upgraded. That solved that problem for a few months and now it is back again as my page is exceeding the 2,500 scan limit so they want me to upgrade again to a personalized plan. I asked them if they could explain to me how to manually reduce the # of web page URL’s so I didn’t need the upgrade. I got zero response at that point.
I write a daily blog. THAT is all I do with the web page. So I don’t add new URL’s or new content with HTML links to new URL pages. So I am under the assumption that since all I do is write a blog update 3-5 times a week that the new URL web pages they are ‘scanning’ that exceed the 2500 limit are the new updates with the links to the new blogs. And if that is the case then I have to simply delete them to reduce the overall # (correct?).
But here is the thing. I was wondering if their is a way in WP itself to have this done automatically or a plugin that will do it? Because it takes time to weed through all the old blogs one by one and delete them manually.. but if it has to be done it has to be done. I’d like to simply set a limit for how old the data is and have it auto removed after a certain expiration date.. purging all the old data.. or something like archiving it in to one URL location so it isn’t a high number of URL’s that is still cluttering up the site.
And again, I may be off base on this being what has caused the web page url’s to far exceed the 2500 limit.. but I can’t find any of those URL’s in my public_HTML file manager on the hosting service to delete any of them (not even in the WP directory either).. Any help would be appreciated.
