Johns Rant:

This is #25 of 52 episodes for 2020. Its Episode 466 and we are one week from being halfway into this crazy year and with another 6mth’s to go it is time to step it up.
As we have just passed the longest day of the year…. we are now 25 weeks into 2020 and 14 weeks of the Rona, no one really knows what the world has in store for us. At the beginning of the year it was pretty optimistic, then for a couple months it was panic about the Rona then for a few weeks it was panic about the Riots and protests now we are back to being told to panic about the Rona. how about if people live their lives and take appropriate precautions to preserve health like humans have done for millennium. I am pretty sure the human race will make it though this disaster like it has so many others in the dark recesses of time.
These are indeed strange times to be alive and I am doing what I can to prepare my kids and grand-kids for what is coming.
The best things you can do is relax take a breath, buy a gun, go for a walk, build a garden and realize things not nearly as bad as the news says they are. So 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’s get to the fun we have today.

more political correctness for the language police and in this article you can read that there is some dissent and in other languages the proposed words are just as bad it would seem. Yes words matter but to who do they matter? Seems to me to be feel good political correctness.

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:


Classic Commerce Beta Release
Just a note for my ClassicPress listeners please send me info to help keep the ClassicPress section full.

“Must Have” Plugins List
To find a listing of ClassicPress specific plugins check out this link there is currently 37 42 49 50 52 55 57 plugins here and growing. I look forward to the day they have their own repository. I can still recall WP when it had a small repository.
