Benefits – Benefits – Benefits

Having a review done by us or having an interview helps the traffic to the developers website, as was bought to our attention recently when we did an interview and reviewed a plugin for a developer who sent us snap shots of their traffic before and after the shows. The traffic stayed, so there are great benefits to being reviewed by WP Plugins A to Z. Submit Your Plugin Here.

This Weeks Plugins for the show.

Better Plugin Compatibility Control

Requires:2.9 or higher
Compatible up to:6.4.99
Released:30 December 2008
Last Updated:06 November 2023
(4.3 star out of 5)

The lowdown:
This is a simple plugin much like the one I covered for ClassicPress in Episode 423 in that it adds a column in your installed plugins list to give you an idea of what version of WordPress your plugins are known to be compatible with. This could help you with diagnostics or determining if a plugin has become too old to use on your site.

A good simple plugin to help you out

Rating 5 Dragons


Fresh Forms for Gravity

Requires:4.9 or higher
Compatible up to:6.5.4
Released:08 October 2019
Last Updated:11 June 2024
(5 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
This is a simple plugin to add to your site to prevent caching of any page that has GravityForm shortcode on it. Simple to use just add the plugin clear your cache and no longer will you have to worry about your form page not working correctly with caching.

This plugin works for most caching plugins that honour the DONOTCACHEPAGE directive.
Caching plugins supported:

  • WP Super Cache
  • W3 Total Cache
  • WP Rocket
  • Autoptimize
  • Comet Cache
  • LiteSpeed Cache
  • Hummingbird
  • WP Optimize
  • WP Fastest Cache
  • WP Engine System

Caching plugins NOT supported:

  • Breeze. It doesn’t support DONOTCACHEPAGE constant or filters to skip caching.
  • SG Optimizer. It doesn’t support DONOTCACHEPAGE constant or filters to skip caching. Although it supports excluding GF scripts from minification and async loading, so this is supported.

CloudFlare and other proxies:
This plugin will add appropriate HTTP header to pages with a Gravity Forms to exlude the page HTML from caching. By default CloudFlare doesn’t cache the page HTML, it does only when you have configured it to “Cache Everything”. In this case, after activating the plugin, you need to purge cache in your CloudFlare account or wait for cache expiration to let CloudFlare know the page must be excluded from caching

Rating 5 dragons.


Download Button for Elementor

Requires:4.6 or higher
Compatible up to:6.5.4
Released:25 September 2019
Last Updated:03 April 2024
(4.1 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
This is a plugin to add a download button to your Elementor theme. This is a better looking item than just having a download link for your site, you can customize it up to make it look pretty for your site. Simple to use and make it look great and works with ClassicPress.

Rating 5 Dragons

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:


ClassicPress v1.1.0 has been released with a couple new features.

Listen to the Interview with James Nylen and Michelle Coe from ClassicPress Two of the Leads for the ClassicPress Team, Michelle Coe (lead designer), and James Nylen (lead developer) it is a great interview so follow the link to listen to it.

General info:

Make sure you check into the forums from time to time.
