Hack tool, please contact support – WordPress

I came across an error recently that users were getting when trying to login to book events on a wordpress site. The error was:

“Hack tool, please contact support”

That didn’t look great, and some users thought their machines were compromised. Having looked in to it, it’s a problem with the headers in the .htaccess file. To resolve this error (I’ve seen a number of users with this issue), add this block to your .htaccess file.

<ifModule mod_headers.c> 
Header set Set-Cookie wordpress_test_cookie=WP+Cookie+check 

St. Anne’s College Oxford Graduate Community Site


The new St. Anne’s College MCR (Middle Common Room) website is finally online! Previously, edits could only be done through one person and maintaining/uploading files was a nightmare. Now, everything is managed via a WordPress site (very excellent stack by the way, despite all my protests about PHP) bringing editing to all, plus event management is all integrated in to one site.


Have a look and check it out. We’re adding more content over the next few days, but much of the heavy lifting has already been done.
