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.

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.

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

ClassicPress Plugin

RankMath SEO

The Lowdown:
Moving to ClassicPress means rethinking many of the plugins I have used for a long time and one I have wanted to get off of for a while anyway is Yoast SEO but I had not discovered a replacement until it was mentioned to me to check out RankMath.

So far the setup of this plugins has been pretty good and it has a similar interface to Yoast so you wont be too lost in the conversion. I have done an initial install of this plugin on my test site and getting ready to install it on It has an easy to follow setup wizard and you can get it running with or without the free account hey off on their site.
