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.
It’s an all new season.. WP Plugins A to Z, 11 years and counting.. Now into our 12th year of doing this show.
This is a value for value show and I look forward to everyone providing some value back.
Before I get started, you will want to hang around to the end of the show for our Q & A segment with Amber…. and to those listening on the podcast, you may want to check out the YouTube version which has some great discussions before the show starts…
This is #41 of 52 episodes for 2021! I’m not here this week, though I wanted to leave a note for everyone just to say Happy Halloween everyone!!
Hopefully the storm that started on Thursday evening isn’t still going on Halloween and that everyone can get out with the kidlets to trick or treat! Also, if the storm is still going, that means I am moving in the storm… wish me luck everyone!
Enjoy the pumpkins and the candles, and of course the parent taxed candies. ;)
Rinse and repeat as often as needed.

Off we go into the meat and potatoes, Into the depths of plugin depravity…..
ClassicPress is growing really well, but I just don’t have the time to add reviews on ClassicPress myself. I am always open to reviews sent in by listeners; though unless there is a review sent into me on ClassicPress, I am not going to do more than mention that ClassicPress is a thing, and here are some resources. I hope some listeners out there find this information useful!
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. 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, I just have not time to help them in getting it out there.
We’re happy to announce the release of ClassicPress 1.3.1. This is a small bugfix release while we are also preparing for the larger 1.4.0 release.
This could be an interesting plugin to help get people looking though your website, it places a random number of Halloween icons throughout your website. Once they find all the icons they get a discount coupon they can use in your store.
Now, I reviewed this in episode 481, but honestly I don’t feel like I truly did this plugin justice. So here we go again, a more thorough review!
Hands down, best Halloween plugin I have come across thus far on WordPress -and honestly makes me a little sad that a week before Halloween they have not updated it for this beautiful holiday for a year!
First, you get 3 tabs of options – sticky/non sticky display for top or bottom of pumpkins, carrots (why carrots?), ghosts, Halloween creatures, or haunted church/house.
Than you have Monsterfall, which is like Snowfall, except with pumpkins, ghosts and bats. Totally awesome!
Last, you get to choose between 16 different pop-ups that can show up on either the left or right bottom corner. My personal fav. is: ‘this witch can be bribed with chocolate!’
You can have one or all of the 3 options going at once on your site, or just none.
Totally free, really awesome, still working like a dream! I really hope that Pixolette keeps this plugin going!!
