Why Should You Limit Login Attempts in WordPress?
A brute force attack is a method that uses trial and error to hack into your WordPress website.

The most common type of brute force attack is password guessing. Hackers use automated software to keeping guessing your login information so they can gain access to your website.

By default, WordPress allows users to enter passwords as many times as they want. Hackers may try to exploit this by using scripts that enter different combinations until they guess the right login.

    How can I do that?
    Create two custom post types called

    ● Book

    ● Author

    Create a metabox for the book post type in a right sidebar showing all the author names that

    users can select for a particular book.

    thank you very much for your valuable information, I have a question and I genuinely need your feedback, I am building an educational platform that each student will use to sell his own course, do you have a plugin that can act as a video and audio editing, so users like students can customize their presentation and submit it as a design project, for example, can I embed Doodly as a plugin inside WP to create an interactive presentation. or something like that.
