The Lowdown:
This is a great simple plugin that allows you to find out the widgets you used when you built out a website. simply install the go to a page you built with Elementor and then hover over the widgets. You will then see what plugin was used for that widget. This is a very useful tool when you remember doing something on a site and you want to duplicate it and just can’t recall which plugin you used.

ClassicPress Options

ClassicPress is a fast growing fork of WordPress that is starting to come into its own. ClassicPress is focused on Business Websites runs fast and is looking pretty good. There are a few plugins specifically for ClassicPress and all plugins for WordPress 4.9.9 work well on it. I do believe it has a future.

One thing I am looking forward to in the ClassicPress World is the expansion of the number of ClassicPress specific plugins and their own repository. Currently there are not a lot of ClassicPress specific plugins but I do know it is going to grow and I’ll have to expand this segment then. Who knows, it could take over the whole show.

This week for ClassicPress I have:
