    Today’s website health checks included security scan and quality scan.

    WordPress Plugins: 4 plugins updated:

    • Child Theme Configurator 2.0.4 to 2.0.6. Technical updates and fixes.
    • Favicon by RealFaviconGenerator 1.3.4 to 1.3.5. Polish and Russian translations added.

    WordPress Themes: Storefront needs updating 2.0.1 to 2.0.3. No Changelog, so cannot verify update suitability. Support Request raised: WordPress Theme Storefront should be retired.

    Wordfence Blocked IP: 172.68.27.254 blocked June 1: POST received with blank user-agent and referer.
    This is CloudFlare IP address for Brazil, which I have whitelisted. Support Request raised: Brazilian CloudFlare IP range needs whitelisting.

    GSC Search Analytics Monthly review shows audience down by 60%. Need to continue content publishing.

    As discussed, I just tightened up the Wordfence Rate Limiting Rules.

    404 errors acceptable rate is halved for Crawlers and Humans, and action remains “Throttle”.

    “404s for known vulnerable URLs” rate is reduced to minimum possible, and action remains “Block”.

    These changes might affect the Security Health Check at step: “Wordfence Blocked IP review”. We might have to review these changes, subject to new Blocked IP reports.

    This is just a note to log the changes made. No response is necessary, unless clarification is required.
