    Can anyone recommend a place to ask a technical Wordpress question (I have some odd thing happening relating to securing the admin area with .htaccess and am banging my head against the wall with my web host) or do we have any resident Wordpress experts here?

    Sorted now, but thanks anyway. My XML-RPC was being brute forced so no amount of admin area securing was going to stop it. Now disabled.

    I think some hosts already disable that in the fantastico installer. Not sure how yours was having this problem. I remember having this problem few years ago when it was not done in the script itself. Either the host or the some of my security plugins are doing this for me.
