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.

This plugin will help you clean up the mess that is Gutenberg by disabling the unused and unneeded blocks on a site. If you have used Gutenberg editor you will know that you can have lots of blocks and well you probably won’t use them all so you may as well hide the unused junk. That’s what you get here.
