With that lets dive right into the meat and potatoes. I have a great set of plugins for you today!
To start off I have a plugin 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.

The next plugin I have for you is:
Garth from Event Espresso was on Episode 161, Interviewed Seth Shoultes on Episode 39 and I reviewed this plugin way back in Episode 37 where I gave it a 4 Dragon rating.
It has been a few years since I used this plugin. I had not used it in years as it had become difficult to use and there were better plugins out there for a lot less. This was brought to me in a recent project I just launched for the North American Garden Tourism Conference and they wanted to use Event Espresso so I had them buy the full license and, well, I am impressed at how well this plugin has improved over the past few years since I last used it.
It is much easier to use and make the setup of event tickets smooth and the display works well as well as the additional add-ons that make smooth connections. I can say however don’t try to cheap out when using this plugin. Buy the full license, it will save you money.
Rating 5 Dragons.

While working on a project I had need to import a table from Excel and well as anyone who has tried other table plugins know this is a pretty hard thing to do. You usually convert to a CSV file and that works great but this time the table had special formatting I needed in it and a CSV file just wouldnot do the trick.
The free version of this plugin does a pretty good job but won’t import the Excel file. I opted to buy the premium plugin and wowo it worked fantastic and once imported they have a great interface where you can manitipulate the table after the fact to tweak it a bit for your site.
Very nice plugin

Since the release of Gutenberg, and it fallout ClassicPress has garnered allot of attention. This is a fork of WordPress and is focused on Business Websites and is looking pretty good. It does seem in the past few months ClassicPress is comming into its own a bit and with some plugins now being created specifically for ClassicPress 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 CP specific plugins and thier own repository. Currently there are not allot of CP sppecific plugin 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’s ClassicPress plugin is:
Since there are not a lot of ClassicPress dedicated plugins this week, I focus on some of the recent press ClassicPress is getting. Granted I had to go a few pages deep into Google to get these articles.
From RoughPixels Themes may 19, 2019:
ClassicPress as an alternative to WordPress
SpeckyBoy March 4, 2019
Behind the Scenes of ClassicPress – the WordPress Alternative
And check out the ClassicPress Club
And more this is a community that is growing and many talented people are migrating over to it as it looks to be treating people better.
an older article but something to think about
Rebel, Right Now – A Few Thoughts for WordPress Theme and Plugin developers
The Classic press editor for WordPress is being used over 4 million times and will lose support in 2022 (only 3 years away). If you are one of them you might want to start a plan for moving to ClassicPress CMS. More about it at https://www.classicpress.net/
To find a listing of ClassicPress specific plugins check out this link https://forums.classicpress.net/t/plugins-built-specifically-for-classicpress/1011?u=codepotent there is currently 37 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.
Closing out this Episode the Plugins I Covered Were:
John’s Plugins: Shiprocket – 3, Event Espresso – 5, Data Tables Generator – 5
