Use the quick links on your right to start reading up on WonderCMS. Start with some simple do's and don'ts listed below.
- Change the default password and login URL immediately after setting up WonderCMS.
- Always backup before updating.
- Install themes and plugins only from the official website: https://wondercms.com
- Check how to make your website even more secure - for Apache and NGINX users.
- Create functions.php instead of editing index.php.
- If you are running WonderCMS on a local machine, install a certificate to avoid the persistent "Update" message error.
Don't edit index.php.
- Important because the built in one click updater overwrites index.php. Any changes made to index.php WILL BE LOST after clicking "Update".
- Don't upload random SVG files.
- Don't get tricked into uploading malicious SVG's. If in doubt, avoid uploading any SVG file extension.
