Some site builders take the approach that the website belongs to the client and the client gets full control. Others restrict client access to what they need to get their job done and hide the rest. In this article the author argues for teaching the client only what they need to know.

There have been a number of plugins that have repeated had security issues, even among the bigger players. In this editorial I suggest that it is time for the big players to start having their plugins audited for security. When we evaluate plugins we check for a money back guarantee, that they tell about themselves on the website, that they have positive reviews, are actively providing support, and so on. Lets start politely asking about independent security audits.
