Today will be release an important update which contains a security monitoring system. This system will monitor the vulnerable folders to detect executable files.

Imgur is one of the most popular website. And with Midrub we can publish posts with links, photos and text on Imgur. The new RSS feature will provide better support for images and possibility to select per feed in which category/album publish a feed’s posts. The problem with Imgur is in private photos. If them aren’t published in a public album only you will see them if you will not share them. Today i’ve added the possibility to select the album where will be published your photos. For each Imgur account you can select a different category.

From the version 0.0.7.0, Midrub has the option to set an interval time for the scheduling posts. By default the interval time is 5 seconds between one account and other account where will be published a post. You can add your wanted interval in Admin Panel -> Settings -> Advanced -> Scheduling interval between accounts. 60 seconds means 1 minute. 3600 = 1 hour. Same option will work for scheduled RSS’s posts and RSS Feeds Posts. Please remember to increase even the option max_execution_time in php.

If in a script is not required the PayPal Identity Token and you just add the email address for PayPal payments(just email, no api or identity token), the payment PayPal system is good for nothing, because with a simple url success you can upgrade your plan with a fake transaction. For this reason Midrub uses the Identity Token to verify if the payment was done as expected, expected money value and if transaction wasn’t done before. You can read here How to get the PayPal Identity Token For a success payment verification, you have to add in your plan the price with decimals. And you have to add correct Currency Code supported by PayPal https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/api/currency_codes/
