- This is a YouTube livestream titled "Protect Joomla Install by Redirecting WordPress Attack Bots 🛠 Maintenance Monday Live Stream #014."
- The host is Tim Davis, and he talks about a topic related to protecting Joomla websites from WordPress attack bots.
- Tim mentions that WordPress attack bots can affect Joomla sites in various ways.
- These bots trigger the Joomla 404 mechanism when they attack, causing unnecessary resource usage.
- They don't show up in tracking tools for broken URLs on Joomla sites, making it harder to monitor their activity.
- Depending on Google Analytics setup, these bot calls to non-existent pages can skew website traffic data.
- Tim demonstrates how to redirect WordPress attack bot URLs to a blank HTML page to reduce resource usage and maintain Joomla site efficiency.
- He explains creating a "no thanks" HTML file and adding a rewrite rule to the .htaccess file to achieve this.
- Tim also mentions having multiple redirect rules for different WP-related URLs.
- A viewer suggests using Joomla's core redirect component if not using sh404sef for redirecting.
- Tim considers this suggestion but doesn't demonstrate it in the current livestream.
