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.
You can also watch the show Live on YouTube every Thursday at Noon PST
I also have a live show every Saturday night at 8pm PST that is a round up of all new in the WordPress world and a time for Q&A.
With that lets dive right into the meat and potatoes.

To start off I have a couple plugins that I have yet to use but thought you might want to know they exist. Keep in mind the ratings are based off the descriptions on their site and using their demo if available.

WP Gift Registry: Simple Wishlists for Weddings, Birthdays etc.
What they say:
WPGiftRegistry easily lets you create beautiful wishlists for weddings and other occasions. The plugin enables you to track which gifts have already been bought.
Are you looking for a clean and simple solution to display your wedding gift registry on your website or just want to create a wishlist for your birthday or other occasions?
WPGiftRegistry easily lets you add gifts to your wishlist and embed it anywhere with a shortcode. Each gift is displayed with an image, a title, a description, the price and a product link. More importantly, people can indicate if they already bought the gift (so nobody else does).
WPGiftRegistry comes with a nice design and is built responsively so it displays nicely on all devices.

The next plugin I have for you is:
Local Time Clock
This is an interesting plugin that I though would solve a problem I was having in a project of showing time for multiple cities on a page. While the plugin is great and has a widget with some nice setting it does not have a short code or and easy way to get the clocks on a page. You can create multiple widgets with multiple clocks. One other issue I ran into is the clocks are all Flash and well we know where that is going…
All in all not too bad though.

The last plugin I have here today is:
Use Any Font
From time to time you may have the need to use a unique font for a website but you want to insure that the font will always show up for your site users. To do this you need the font on your website. This plugin makes that happen for you. The free version of plugin will only allow you do to one font but for as little as $10 you can have unlimited fonts.
What happens is you use their conversion API system to convert your font and then embed it into your website so it is always there and loads fast.
This is a great way to use custom fonts.

Adding a new segment just for Classic Press since the release of Gutenberg ClassicPress has garnered a lot of attention.
This week’s ClassicPress plugin(s):
I will bring one or more plugins per week here as I can test them.
The ClassicPress specific plugins are starting to popup here is another one I have come across.
The Site Info plugin helps you discover key information about your site in a single, useful display. This can save you a lot of clicking and logins when you need to gather this information bit-by-bit.
WordPress’ built-in icons are used throughout to bring your attention to any problems found with your site or server. You will find that things like an outdated WordPress version, an insecure PHP version, non-use of HTTPS, etc., are marked prominently.
PHP, database, and WordPress versions? No problem!
Relative and absolute paths? There you go!
Database server, character set, or table prefix? No sweat!
Installed plugins and themes? Of course!
Server OS, cURL version, and supported SSL protocol? Gotcha covered!
Rating 4 Dragons
Side note I noticed that when you are doing a search using the repository it show you right away if the plugins are compatible with your version of Classic Press. You can also search with the tag “ClassicPress” to find plugins made to work in Classicpress
