Johns Rant:

Its episode 457 and I need more participation from you the producers this year as the sword of Damocles is still hanging over the show. Keep the feedback coming….. This is #17 of 52 episodes for 2020..

As we are 17 weeks into 2020 and 5 weeks into the isolation/lockdown game, how are you handling the lockdown. Are you in a city country that has a total lockdown or do you have some freedom to get out and breath some fresh air? let me know in the comments how your faring are you unemployed or getting more work than ever like many out there. These are strange times indeed.

It does however look like our masters are going to start letting us back into the world again. As the US starts to open and they ven opend the Golf Courses here in BC we may be getting started again but it will be a rough road.

Relax folks take a breath, go for a walk, build a garden and realize that while our world is now changed forever we will get though it. Save your sanity and your Amygdala and find out why your not gonna die by listening to the No Agenda Show

I have some news from the world of WordPress for you today as well as some great plugins.

Let get to the fun we have today.

WordPress News and Info

Before we jump into the news a couple observations about WordPress.

A problem I have noticed with WordPress is that they are making many changes for the simple reason of making changes and advances. they don’t always seem to provide any great advances but often cause issues such as a new learning curve, new screens such as the latest full screen editor you have to figure out how to turn off.

It seems they are moving so far ahead that they are loosing people. The issue here is that I am running into more and more websites that cannot be updated to the latest version simply because they have incompatible plugins or other issues. and have to block the updates to prevent issues.

I know we are in a world of fast change but they will need to start slowing down the carnage and simply work on security and let people catch up to what they have if they want to keep their user base. If they don’t I believe that WordPress will start shedding users in the same was other platforms of the pas have.

This I think is a reason that ClassicPress will catch up to them pretty fast in its user base. Especially if they stay focused on ease of use, speed and security.

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 Plugins

ClassicPress Encryption

Mediamatic helps to organize the WordPress Media Library into folders hierarchy easily using drag&drop interface.
Manage thousands of media files and folders in your WordPress media library swiftly and smoothly! A breakthrough in WordPress media library management and organization.

John- I have tried this on one of my client’s websites which has thousands of images and it is what I have been looking for. It is a $15 one time fee (no subscription YEAAAH!!!) and you can use in as many websites as you like.

(Note it seems they have changed their license fee and structure and charge for multiple sites now.)

Pop up Trigger URL for Elementor

Requires: or higher
Compatible up to:
Released:01 January 1970
Last Updated:01 January 1970
(0 star out of 5)

What he says:

Currently you can trigger Elementor Pro’s popups by click only on buttons or links inside Elementor.
This plugin will help you to trigger your Elementor Pro’s popup from anywhere even outside the Elementor’s content.

When looking at the Pop up window you have the shortcode on the far right, this adds an URL tab where you copy the Pop-ups URL and add it to any LINK element be it text or a button etc.. Using the URL is much easier than Elementors method of triggering Pop ups. This plug in is a hug time saver.
