It’s Episode 407 and I’ve got plugins for Image Compression, Importing and Exporting user lists, Cleaning up old Short Codes, and what’s happening in the world ClassicPress, all coming up on WordPress Plugins from A-Z!


Episode #407

John:    It’s Episode 407 and I’ve got plugins for Image Compression, Importing and Exporting user lists, Cleaning up old Short Codes, and what’s happening in the world ClassicPress, all coming up on WordPress Plugins from A-Z!

[Intro]

WordPress, it’s the most popular content management and website solution on the internet. And with over 80,000 plugins to choose from, how do you separate the junk from the gems? Join us for a weekly unrehearsed conversation about the latest and greatest in WordPress plugins. This is WordPress Plugins from A to Z.

John:    Well good morning, good afternoon, or good evening, wherever you happen to be hiding out there on the globe today. Coming to you direct from the Brewery Overlook in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, I’m John Overall. And I have the usual great show for you today but of course right off the top, you can get all the show notes over at wppluginsatoz.com. Also, take a few moments and subscribe and review the show over at Stitcher Radio, Google Play, and in the iTunes Store. You can also catch it live here every Thursday on YouTube at noon.

And take a couple a moments, drop on over to the website, and sign up and subscribe to our newsletter. It’s as simple as just popping in there, enter your name and email address, and sign up. That way, you get more information that’s not covered in the show – fantastic stuff.

All right, well all of that being said, let’s dive right into the meat and potatoes of the show.

[Plugins lead-in rock music]

All right, starting it off I have a plugin for you here. It’s one I have yet to use, but I thought you might want to know that it exists. The plugins I cover here at the beginning of the show are usually ones that have been submitted to me. I haven’t had time to put them through the formal review of using them and testing them, but I think they’re interesting enough that you might want to know that they exist. Keep in mind the ratings are based off their demo site if they have one or just my reviewing of the materials and the basic setup of the plugin.

The first one I’ve got for you was submitted to us by Weronika Pomorska and it’s from Smartframe.io and it’s a WordPress Image Security & Compression Plugin. Now, this is a freemium plugin. It has both a free and a premium version, and the free version of course available over at WordPress.org. It’s an image compression plugin but it also adds some security to your images also – a little different than most other image compression plugins in that what it does is it encrypts your images, thereby preventing them from being downloaded in their standard format, and also it decrypts some within the websites themselves for display. It also eliminates right clicking on your website and a few other little tricks to it.

It’s a really neat, little plugin. It looks kind of interesting. I haven’t tested it yet. It is a third-party service you’ve got to sign up for to use their third-party platform for the compression, etc., but it does look interesting and as a premium service, it doesn’t look too bad, reasonable pricing on it all. Go check it out if you’re not already using some form of compression plugin or if you’re looking for a way to maybe enhance the security of your images for your WordPress website.

And I give this one a 3-Dragon rating and that is WordPress Image Security & Compression Plugin called Smartframe. Go check it out.

All right, and I have a little bit of a news segment I’m going to be tacking into the show here, bits and pieces of information due to, you know, my not getting the Saturday show out in quite some time and keeping up with the news. But I thought, “Well, let’s bring some of it into the show. Why not? Let’s just spice it up that make the place a little more exciting than usual.”

I’ve got a little bit this week here, some thoughts on WordPress 5.2. So if you’re not aware, WordPress 5.2 of course dropped this week, and they’ve added in a whole lot of new security features and updates and tidbits to it. In particular, some of the things they’ve done is they took the Site Health Check plugin and they incorporated it into the core of WordPress. They’ve also upped the ante on PHP, making the minimum needed for PHP 5.2 to be PHP 5.6, yet it gets confusing at times.

So that’s kind of a useful thing, but I do have a thought about the Site Health plugin that is now incorporated into the core, because I have upgraded one website to 5.2, so I could check it out and see what it is. The upgrade went smoothly enough, but when I went to check out the Site Health, I noticed that well, one, I don’t like the new layout. It’s a little hard to read than the other one. Now you’ve got to open up all the little expansion tabs to see all the bits instead of just scrolling down to get it all in one shot. The other is they’ve added a very interesting function, and that is the death of the White Screen of Death; it no longer occurs, or it’s not supposed to occur. I have yet to actually see how this works in practice. But with the White Screen of Death gone, it means it goes to a developer’s mode or a recovery mode, allowing you to do things.

Now, one of the interesting things when I was reading it is that what it does is it sends out an email from your website to the administrator of the site that will allow the administrator to then go to a page to activate and work within that recovery mode portion of the site. Now, one of the things that occurred to me, what happened if the administrator email has not been updated since the site was set up?

Say for example one of the things that I do is I’ll get someone hire me occasionally to set up their WordPress website. They don’t give me an email address to set it up, so of course I use mine. I usually do that anyway and then change it to theirs when I’m done, but sometimes it doesn’t get done. Or for instance a WordPress website that was set up a while ago and that administrator email was set to go to some developer three developers ago. I know there’s clients I’ve had that are three, five, seven years old now, that have long since moved on to do something else or with another developer, but I still get emails from their website as the administrator – that administrator email that’s set in the settings.

So would that give me then access to that website to go in there and play with things? This is kind of an interesting conundrum, not something I’ve tested out, but something to think about in this. If you upgrade to 5.2, doublecheck, go into your settings under menu, general settings, and doublecheck that administrative email. That’s the email it’s talking about, not the admin user, but the administrative email for the core of the site, and this is something that I don’t think they give much thought to about how it works. Or, the fact that many times that email [rotary phone ringtone] is left over from ages – and there we go. Hey, that’s from New Guinea. [smartphone ringer] I have lots of people down in New Guinea that I need to contact.

All right, so that’s what I’ve got there for that, and that’s the new PHP recovery mode. So at any rate, check it out. There are some really cool features in the 5.2, but then there’s a couple of things. There’s also one little controversial feature in the 5.2 – I’m not sure how controversial it is, but the site health also lists a grading, telling people how much is complete of site security, and so this is going to be kind of an interesting one, too. So at any rate, go check it out. The 5.2 looks like it’s going to be all right from as far as I can tell, but this is one aspect to think about.

And this show is currently brought to you by…

Okay, and we do have a new contest this week, and I forgot to get that up and fully functioning, but we do have a new contest, so go check out the newsletter as it comes out or go check the website for the information on that contest coming up.

All right and next up, a plugin I’ve got for you here is called Import Users from CSV. Now, this one here is kind of interesting and I’m working through – I’ve got a couple of plugins I’ve tested out for this, but we’ll bring one this week, one next week, etc. Importing and exporting users from WordPress can be a useful function if you’re running a bit of a membership site, and in particular, I’ve been working on a project where I inherited it. I had half the members were already in the WordPress website; the other half were in a list – a CSV list – that needs to be imported into the list, and I didn’t want to have to do them manually one at a time, which can happen if you’re working on a project such as that.

Well, this plugin here allows you to import a list of users from a CSV file. It’s a pretty straightforward CSV. The one problem I found with it was it didn’t have an export function, and to me, an export function is kind of helpful because what can happen is I’ve already used a membership plugin setup and it’s customized up, the member list information a little bit, so I wanted to export out so I had a default CSV file to work from, which is the default headers that I needed for the adjustments I had made. Well, this doesn’t do that. You would have to manually go create that list and go look everything up manually, and then you can use this plugin to then import that list into your WordPress, so it’s pretty basic in that it only imports into your site and you can’t export.

All in all, not a bad plugin. It’s the one that was recommended by the membership plugin I used for this site, and that will be coming in a future show. But I didn’t like the way it worked, so I went looking for another one that would do the same task but allowed me first to export the limited number of members I had so that I then could combine two CSV files to make one and then reimport the entire list again. So all in all, not too bad of a plugin. Import Users from CSV, I currently give it a 3-Dragon rating. Go check it out. Not a bad plugin.

Any donations $50 up and over are – their note is read out here and they are acknowledged on the show. Anything below $50 remains anonymous. So thank you very much everyone who supports the show.

All right, next plugin I’ve got for you here is called Remove Orphan Shortcodes. Now, this one here is kind of an interesting one. I’ve got another project I’m working on that we’re changing out the theme, and the theme relied heavily on shortcodes – I mean heavily. And one of the problems you’ve got when you’re doing a changeover like that is you’ve got to find those shortcodes, remove them, you can do a manual search and replace to the database but sometimes you miss things. There may be additional shortcodes – all kinds of stuff.

So what do you do in that case? You spend a lot of time searching, researching, or you can install this fantastic little plugin, Remove Orphan Shortcodes. What it does is it takes all the orphan shortcodes and it just causes them to vanish. They leave the content wrapped inside the shortcode; it’s left there. But the shortcodes themselves disappear. It cleans up the site in a heartbeat. It’s as simple as install and activate and it works. It was just a dream. It allowed us to start our redesign of development as we go through and clean this stuff up, but we don’t have to manually get rid of all that junk first. We can find it little by little as we’re doing the actual work, instead of removing the shortcodes before we can get any work done.

So this is allowing us to go through and joyfully look at the site and see how our development is looking and how it’s going to look with the old shortcodes removed from the site. A very sweet plugin, really well done. It works simple; set it up, activate, and so what happens when you’ve got a free plugin like that? Of course, it gets a 5-Dragon rating.

[Dragon roar]

Go check it out: Remove Orphan Shortcodes.

Okay, and this week here, ClassicPress options. I’m not going to be talking about a ClassicPress plugin per se this week, but what I am going to do is a little bit of discussion about ClassicPress itself and the community as I’ve been exposed to it over the last several months. Now, I started back in December as soon as Gutenberg was announced, and I tripped across a tweet about ClassicPress and I went, “Hey, an option.” I started following it and then I realized that this is going to be something that’s going to grow – and it is growing. It’s a community that is moving forward at a decent pace; not by leaps and bounds yet, but it’s going to get there.

Right now, it’s moving along at a really decent pace. It’s getting a lot of support, the community itself seems to have lots of support, and one of the things I wanted to talk about this week is that they are actually in the process of doing some experimental research. And what that research is is they’re looking at replacing plugins and other things in – that are WordPress-specific and making specific stuff for ClassicPress. Some of the things they’ve got here is like e-commerce, which is a mainstay of the internet now. Many websites depend upon e-commerce, and of course if you switch from WordPress to ClassicPress right now, WooCommerce will work just fine. In a year or two, not so sure about that.

So one of the great things here is they are working at developing two different e-commerce plugins that I’ve seen been forked in here. They’ve got ClassicPress Storefront, which is a fork of Storefront and then ClassicCommerce, which is a fork of WooCommerce. Now, these two plugins here may just be what you need if you’re going to go off to ClassicPress and you’re going to need an e-commerce segment, so these would be useful.

There’s also discussion about improving the media library, and if this happens, it could be a major factor for switching. And more is the community is growing by many talented people and many talented people are migrating over to it as it looks to be treating people much better. One of the things I myself am looking forward to in the ClassicPress world is the expansion of the number of ClassicPress-specific plugins and them having their own repository. Currently, there are not a lot of ClassicPress-specific plugins, but I do hear bits and pieces here where more and more developers are looking to support ClassicPress and move towards it.

So this is going to be quite an interesting future. If you’re at all upset with WordPress and one of the things to consider is that of course since the release of Gutenberg is we have the ClassicPress plugin – or the Classic Editor plugin for WordPress, and that Classic Editor plugin is currently being used by over 4 million people – 4 million active installs in WordPress websites. That’s a lot of people who have not committed to Gutenberg yet. I know that I don’t have a single site committed to Gutenberg. Of all the WordPress sites I manage, every one of them uses the Classic Editor to keep Gutenberg turned off, and this is a pretty standard thing for a lot of people.

But what’s going to happen is that Classic Editor is due to be dropped. They have it scheduled for 2022 or December 31st of 2021 for support for that to end, and once that support ends, you’ll have to make a choice. You’ll either have to commit to Gutenberg or you’ll have to never update your WordPress website again or move over to ClassicPress. Well, you might consider moving over to ClassicPress sooner rather than later. I know I’m slowly moving several of my sites over that way as I experiment with, see what works. I’m moving things over in that direction. I may end up be doing more and more ClassicPress.

So this is something to think about and consider for your business and website. I mean, WordPress is always going to have a place, but I think they dropped the ball for businesspeople. So keep that in mind, go check it out, and check out the ClassicPress community. If you’re looking for a change, the ClassicPress community may be just where you want to go, and their community seems to be really helpful and really supportive. Just reading through their forums, it’s pretty decent from what I can tell.

At any rate, that’s everything I’ve got for you this week and I covered up in this episode the WordPress Image Security & Compression Plugin – Smartframe, which I gave a 3 to; the Import Users from CSV, which I gave a 3 to; and the Remove Orphan Shortcodes, which I gave a 5 to.

Okay, a couple of reminders. Well, one, there’s a new interview that’s coming out next week. It will be posted up into the stream. It’s – I had an interview with Ivan Giugni from Stockdio.com and it was a pretty decent interview talking about their stock plugins, the one that I reviewed a couple of episodes back, so make sure you stay tuned for that interview.

The next WordPress Meetup in Victoria is May 21st, and I will be broadcasting it live on our YouTube channel here along with. Anyone in the local Victoria area, please come out to the presentation. It’s going to be given by Shawn DeWolfe of the DeWolfe Consulting. He’s a really great guy, excellent programmer. I hire him quite a lot for doing a lot of my extensive coding for plugins, so you can go check that out.

All right, with all of that out of the way, let’s dive right into the meat and potatoes of the show.

[Plugins lead-in rock music]

Okay, well first up I have for you a great plugin today. For a while there, I have been doing a couple of plugins at this part here, where people – developers and others – have been sending plugins in to me, submissions, to be reviewed, and that pot is finally working it down to where I’m going to drop it back to just one a week for a while until it gets too big.

So this week here, the one I have for you, it was sent in by Craig Schmidt from jumpstartdev.net and it’s called GraviTsheets, and this is an interesting plugin. It’s new and it’s just getting launched out there to the world, so I’m going to tell you a bit about it. I don’t know if I’ll get a chance to use it myself, because what it does for you is it connects up Gravity Forms and Tsheets. Tsheets is a time tracking software, a third-party software system, and I already have my own time tracking.

But for many people, Tsheets is something that they use for setting up their shifts, employee shifts, or if they’ve got multiple employees that go to different places for clients, to book in client jobs, etc. And some people use Gravity Forms in their website as a way for people to book these spots, and what happened is they had to go through and they had to transfer the data from Gravity Forms into Tsheets and things will get lost or misplaced or put into the wrong times and other items like that, and then follow-up became a problem. You know, following up to make sure the client was happy, the work was done, etc.

What these guys have done is they’ve created a connector between Gravity Forms and Tsheets so that you take your Gravity Forms items, you fill out the info, it’s automatically submitted to Tsheets, it creates the shift for you. It also creates follow-up items in your Tsheets for you to follow up with your client. This looks like it’s gonna be quite the fantastic plugin and it looks like it’s going to really help those out there that use these two different items, and they’ve been partnering with some other folks. They’ve given me a call and talked to me on a few things, and I’m sure more information will come out about this as it gets moving forward.

There’s a good writeup in the show notes of what they submitted to me, so you might want to go check that out. But all in all, this is looking like quite an interesting and fantastic plugin. And currently, based on everything I know about it, I’m gonna give GraviTsheets a 4-Dragon rating, so go check it out.

Okay, and this show currently brought to you by…

It allows you to go in and just set up a ticker tracking stocks and they have a multitude of ways to set it up in there, numerous backgrounds and adjustments you can have. You can have charts and all kinds of interesting stuff.

This is something that I’ve been looking for for a while, based upon a hobby – not even a hobby – nice investment stuff I started a few years ago and I’ve been wanting to do something with it, so this will start to appear on one of my pet project sites that never gets to see the light of day. At any rate, it’s a really cool plugin, Stock Market Ticker, and I give it a 4-Dragon rating, so go check it out.

Okay, and this show here, we do like – I do like listener feedback, audio clips, anything like that. So if you would like to be featured in the show, make sure you drop in at the website there, lower right-hand corner, use the SpeakPipe to leave me an audio message. I’ll play it on the show, answer your questions to the best of my ability, even do a lot of research for you. It’s a great way to get free research from an expert.

You can also hit me up on my Contact page or hit me up on Facebook or Twitter, and I will do the best I can to answer it. And if you’ve got suggestions for plugins, feel free to make those, too. I’m always looking for interesting plugins to review and talk about on the show.

This show, value-for-value model, meaning if you get any value out of it, please give some value back. And for those of you out there, all the producers that help make this show happen, please – you know, if you get any value out of it, if it’s worth five bucks of your time, please donate $5 back to it – something to help out. Any donations $50 or more, they get a note read out in the show and anything below $50 remains anonymous, so thank you very much to those that have donated. The Patreon donors, thank you very much. Your Patreon donations have come through this month, I really appreciate them, and for all the other small, weekly donations that help out, so thank you very much for that.

The donations never make it to my pocket – not yet, anyway. They basically help cover the costs of the server, the transcripts, and other miscellaneous things that happen here on this show. And if you would like to donate, please just go to wppluginsatoz.com/donate. Put the amount you’d like to donate into the form and simply go straight to PayPal and donate to the show.

There’s other ways you can donate and support the show too, and some time this week I expect to complete it, maybe early next week actually, because I keep forgetting this week’s almost over. And that is if you want to contribute artwork to the show – you know, the artwork that shows up in the podcast feed, the podcast apps that play this show, the artwork that shows up on the website. If you’ve noticed, the artwork has started to change and has started to take on something a little more dynamic, look a little better than it used to, and this is something that I’m trying to improve dramatically.

But I’m not an artist, so I can only do so much. But if you want to submit artwork to me, I’m more than happy to take it, and there will be a way on the website to submit the artwork, so something you might want to consider. All right, so thank you very much to all those that support the show.

All right, the final – not the final – the next plugin I’ve got up here, because we’ve got one more after this. The next plugin I’ve got up here is called GamiPress, and this is an interesting plugin. This is something that I’ve been looking into more and more and seeing how I can use that for the WP Plugins site, and it’s gamifying your website. This is a big step from what I hear in many marketers and other podcasts such as No Agenda and a couple of others I listen to that have gamified their show.

What they mean by that is while you get your audience involved in the show by offering up rewards for when they donate. They’ve got donation level rewards; they get badges or titles or other things. It’s basically just acknowledging them in the community for their contributions and how they support the show. And as that happens, you get more and more people that are willing to donate. It’s an interesting thing, and this is a plugin that helps you build out that gamification of your website.

It allows you to create a points/achievements/ranks format in here, so when people contribute with comments or posts or donations, they get recognized points. And one of the things they’ve got in here is they’ve integrated this plugin with multiple other WordPress plugins such as LearnDash, LifterLMS, WPEP, WP Courseware, Gravity Forms, Caldera Forms, WP Forms, Easy Digital Downloads, WooCommerce – so all of these other major plugins, when someone does an action in one of those, their points are collected in this plugin and it puts them forward in it.

All in all, this is a very interesting plugin. It also has third-party addons. They’ve also got additional addons for it to make it work and expand it, so it’s one that I’m starting to slowly work with. At the moment, a fantastic plugin. You know, being a freemium version of a plugin, we give it a 4-Dragon rating. Go check it out: GamiPress, a way to gamify your WordPress website.

All right, and finally we have ClassicPress Options. This is eventually going to expand out, I’m sure. Since the release of Gutenberg and its fallout, ClassicPress has garnered a lot of attention. This is a hard fork of WordPress, and it’s focused on the business website world and it’s been looking pretty good. We’re into May and they’ve started to gain a lot of attention. They’re starting to grow a little bit. They’ve released their official Version 1.0 of the plugin, which is quite stable. I’ve used it to build out a couple of websites. I’m currently building out another new website on it, which I’m trying as hard as I can to stick with pure ClassicPress plugins to see how I can deal with it.

Currently, unfortunately, there’s a limit on the number of ClassicPress-specific plugins, and I am looking forward to when the ClassicPress world, with the expansion of the number of ClassicPress-specific plugins and their own repository. Currently, there aren’t a whole lot of ClassicPress-specific plugins, but I do know it’s going to grow, and I will eventually have to expand this segment. Who knows? It could even take over the whole show.

At any rate, this week’s ClassicPress plugin that I’ve checked out – it comes from AzureCurve and it’s called Conditional Links. This one here is kind of interesting to me as I was reading it, and I’m building out a new website. The reason it captured my interest is I’m rebuilding, I should say, up a website from scratch. Something from – I should give the years – many years past when I published an Arts and Entertainment magazine, I had a columnist who did a dream analysis and advice column in there. I’m rebuilding the website up in ClassicPress and I’m looking to keep it as much in ClassicPress as possible.

What this plugin does for you is it can help with my internal linking as I’m bring in older content and new content in that with a simple shortcode, this will allow you to automatically add links. It will automatically add links based upon a slug or a title, and if the slug or title doesn’t exist, it just returns plain text. So it’s a really interesting way, because I know that there’s words that are used that relate to other columns or items that’ll be similar and it will allow for internal link building, and this is something you could do after you’ve got a website. You can just go back and add things. But I’m trying to do things going forward so I won’t have to double-back on it.

All in all, it’s looking to be a fantastic plugin and it’s something you might want to check out if you’re looking at ClassicPress and you’re working in the ClassicPress world, go check this plugin out from AzureCurve, and it’s called Conditional Links. Currently, I give it a 4-Dragon rating.

All right, and as a side note, if you want to find a listing of ClassicPress-specific plugins, there’s a link in the show notes which takes you to their current list of the plugins.

All right, well that wraps up the show for today. I covered up in this episode GraviTsheets, which I gave a 4 to; Stock Market Ticker, which I gave a 4 to; GamiPress, which I gave a 4 to; and Conditional Links, which I gave a 4 to.

And a couple of reminders, the next WordPress Meetup in Victoria will be May 21st and will be broadcast live here on the YouTube channel. And for location and more information, go check out wppluginsatoz.com/meetup. Initially, I was gonna be presenting but I’ve managed to find someone to take over presenting for me. The topic is going to be the same; we’re going to have Shawn DeWolfe. He is going to be presenting and he’s going to be talking about WordPress maintenance and management and the best things you can do for maintaining and managing your WordPress website, so make sure you tune in for that, check it out. Or if you’re in Victoria, please come down to the Meetup. It’s only $5. It helps cover the cost of the room. I don’t think I’ve ever made a profit on those, either, but that’s my thing as I’ve tried to give back to the community wherever I can.

And be sure to check out and subscribe to the YouTube channel for more information, little bits and pieces. And if you have suggestions on a plugin you would like to have reviewed, please submit them on the website at wppluginatoz.com/submit and I’ll get them into the show as soon as I can.

And a final note to developers out there who have premium plugins and if you would like to support the show, please donate a premium plugin license we can use in a future contest. Just go to wppluginsatoz.com/plugin-contest to submit all of the information and I will create a contest around there. Your only cost is that license, which, well pretty much is a minimal cost to you, because it’s just you giving away the one license and maybe some support for that license for a year. So go check it out. It’s a great way to get a lot of promotion from the show.

That’s pretty much everything I’ve got for you today, so I’m going to let my girl take us on out of here.

It’s Episode 405 and I’ve got plugins for WooCommerce Shipping, Restaurant Reservations, WooCommerce Discounts, Crossword Puzzles, and Classic Press Options, all coming up on WordPress Plugins from A to Z!


Episode #405

John:    It’s Episode 405 and I’ve got plugins for WooCommerce Shipping, Restaurant Reservations, WooCommerce Discounts, Crossword Puzzles, and Classic Press Options, all coming up on WordPress Plugins from A to Z!

[Intro]

WordPress, it’s the most popular content management and website solution on the internet. And with over 80,000 plugins to choose from, how do you separate the junk from the gems? Join us for a weekly unrehearsed conversation about the latest and greatest in WordPress plugins. This is WordPress Plugins from A to Z.

John:    Well good morning, good afternoon, or good evening, wherever you happen to be hiding out there on the globe today. Coming to you direct from the Brewery Overlook in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, I’m John Overall. And I have the usual great show for you today but of course right off the top, you can get all the show notes over at wppluginsatoz.com.

And if you’ve got a couple of minutes, I’d greatly appreciate your time over at Stitcher Radio, Google Play, and in the iTunes Store, subscribing to the show and leaving reviews there. They really do help the show out. And also, watch me live every Thursday here on YouTube, where you can also subscribe to and check out our training videos, screencasts, and all the extra shows that do show up from time to time.

Take a couple of minutes also and subscribe to the newsletter where you can get additional information. The newsletter is sent out every Friday afternoon.

So with all that being said, it is time to dive right into the meat and potatoes of the show.

[Plugins lead-in rock music]

And I have a great set of plugins today and to start off, I am still going through my list here, although it’s starting to thin out and I’ll probably have to start dropping it down to one for a little while, or maybe even have to eliminate this until I get another backlog of plugins from developers.

The first couple are plugins that have been sent in to me by developers and listeners over the last while and they accumulated, mainly because I couldn’t get to them, I had no use for them in any projects, and no time to just test out plugins. I still thought it might be useful for you to know that these plugins exist.

So first off here, I’ve got one that was sent in by Kuldip Patel and it’s called Advanced Shipment Tracking for WooCommerce. And what this plugin here is for, it’s a free plugin – freemium plugin, I think. But what it does is it allows you to set up some advanced shipping tracking notifications in your WooCommerce store. It provides your customers with an easy way to track their orders, shop managers can add shipment provider tracking number and date of orders, the customer will receive the info and when their order is completed and shipped, the plugin provides more than shipping providers and you can add your own custom providers to it.

It looks like a pretty decent plugin. If you’re running a WooCommerce store and you’re shipping out, this might be something for you to look into to make it easier and more transparent for your shipping processes to your clients and users, so go check this plugin out. It’s got a free version right off the WordPress.org site and it’s called Advanced Shipment Tracking for WooCommerce and I give it a 3-Dragon rating.

The next one I have for you was sent in by Ivan Zambouka and it’s called Table Reservation, and this is a freemium plugin – they do have a premium version – and this looks like a really great plugin. If you’re running a website or you’re building a website for a small restaurant/café and you offer up table reservations in the restaurant, instead of going with one of those premium services and they already have their own website, they can set it up on their website here where people can book and reserve seats right on their website.

It’s a pretty nice-looking plugin. They’ve got an essential version which comes with the free version, where you’ve got some scheduling settings, opening hours, closing hours, custom email notifications, you can put a picture on, using mapping, you select which tables are available for reservations, then they click on that table, set their reservation times that are available in your store hours. They can add and edit bookings from the admin panel. You can check the correctness of user input data. Supposedly, it’s GDPR-compliant, which is really great for those of you in the EU.

So it looks like a pretty nice, simple, straightforward plugin if you have a small restaurant business that allows for table reservations and you don’t want to pay a fee off to one of those table booking services like OpenTable or whatever all those other services are. Go check this one out, recommend it to your client. They could save themselves a little bit of money over time. Most small businesses need to save as much money as they can, and it runs right off their WordPress website which you’ve already built. So go check this one out. It’s called Table Reservation and I give it a 3-Dragon rating.

All right, this show currently brought to you by…

All right, and currently we don’t have any contests running, so we’re still in the process of negotiating with some developers for licenses to give away. But all our contests are powered by Simple Giveaways plugin who kindly provided us with the premium version for our contests. Go check them out; there’s a link in the show notes for it. For more information on our contests, just go check out wppluginsatoz.com/contests, where the next contest will be announced. Of course it’ll be announced on the show, but chances are it’ll start before the show version happens.

All right, next up I’ve got for you another WooCommerce plugin. This one here is called WooCommerce All Discounts and it is a freemium plugin, but the free version is pretty decent if you’re setting up a simple, basic WooCommerce website. I recently had to use this on a WooCommerce site I was setting up for a small client and what he wanted to do was offer discounts on bulk purchases and, of course – surprise, surprise – that’s not built into WooCommerce. You’d think that would be a built-in thing, but no. You’ve got to add something for it.

This one here is pretty straightforward and simple. It allows you to get in there and set up multiple types of bulk purchases. You may be looking for bulk purchases where they’re gonna have multiple purchases of the same products, they get a discount. The total order of the thing, they get a discount. If they’re ordering from specific categories, they get a discount. If they’re ordering specific variations, a discount. Well, that’s what this plugin does for you in its base setup.

It does have some advance setups in it that allow you to setup even more items, such as they can buy a product from one category and get a 15% discount. They can buy two products, buy one/get one free – there’s a whole lot more in the premium version, but of course I didn’t need that for the particular site I was setting up.

All in all, a pretty decent plugin to add into WooCommerce to set up and allow for discounts on your products in there. Go check it out. It’s called WooCommerce All Discounts, premium plugin, and I give it a 4-Dragon rating.

Listener feedback! I do love listener feedback and I greatly appreciate those that take the time out to go make reviews in iTunes, Stitcher Radio, Google Play store – Stitcher Radio, Google Play, it takes me a little longer to find those ones. But iTunes, I have a monitor which comes in for me, so I might get them a little late, but I always get them.

This week here, I would like to thank Bryce Giesler who gave us 5-star rating from the US, and his rating goes:

Title: Plenty o’ Plugins

And what he had to say: I’ve been following this podcast for several months. Though I only support one website I have found several plugins that added features or helped me process things better. Good Job!

Well, thank you very much, Bryce. I really appreciate you taking the time out to add that review. And I’d really appreciate anyone else who hasn’t added a review to the iTunes Store, please go do that. That really helps the show increase in its rankings in iTunes – at least that’s what they tell me. I can’t – nobody can verify, but it seems to be shows that get lots of ratings rank well in iTunes.

All right, and this show is a value-for-value model, meaning if you get any value out of it at all – I mean any value – if it saves you five bucks, please donate $5. The money doesn’t make it to my pocket. I just don’t have that many people donating yet. All it ever does is help offset the costs that I put out to pay for transcripts, the server bandwidth space, me taking the time out of my working schedule to produce the show, etc. It never actually makes it into my pocket, but it is much appreciated and it’s really great that people can show their appreciation by donating something to the show.

All you’ve got to do to do that is go to wppluginsatoz.com/donate. Choose the amount you want to donate, it takes you to PayPal, donate that amount, and away we go. Also, another way you can help support the show is aside from monetary donations, I am working through the process of figuring out a decent way for people to submit artwork. I’m looking for additional artwork. I’m looking for – what is iTunes now? – a 2400 x 2400 image. I want to have a different artwork.

I’ve started several episodes back and I started changing the artwork for every show to just make it that much more interesting for the show, and it takes me time to create those. While I’m kind of limited, I’m not overly artsy – I’m okay at it, but really, if someone out there wants to create me something, I’ll be happy to supply you with a copy of the logo in a .png format that you can use. All you gotta do is place that on there somewhere and I’ll give you credit and shout-outs here on the show, so lots of kudos for it.

All right, next up I have here a plugin called WHA Crossword. Now, if you are running a newspaper type of website, this is a perfect little item for you. You know, I’ve had it asked me many years ago when I was helping someone with a newspaper website, they wanted a crossword plugin for their website. Well, they didn’t really exist and there were crossword websites out there that you could put crossword puzzles up there, but there was no real way to create something that was dynamic and interactive onto your WordPress website.

Well, I’ve discovered one. This is a relatively new plugin. As far as I can tell, it’s only a few months old and this popped up when I was searching for something else in the WordPress Repository. It’s amazing; you type in one keyword and you get some random plugins sometimes. At any rate, it looked kind of cool, so I thought I’d check it out, and it is actually rather cool. It’s completely blank when you start. You go in, you set it up. You pick the words you want and you start with your first word and then you make words and make sure that your additional words use at least one letter from the other words that you’ve got in there, and you create a clue for the word – a clue for the word and then you set up the colors you want on it.

They do have a premium version which allows you to modify it even further. But once it’s set up, you just pop a shortcode onto your page and poof, it creates an instant crossword onto your website for you. Really nice – it sets up, people fill out the crossword online. It tells them if they got the word right instantly; it tells them if they got it wrong instantly, so it highlights it in either green or red or any color you choose.

It’s just kind of a fun way to help keep people more interactive on your website, so come check this one out: WHA Crossword Puzzle. Even though it has a bit of a freemium version and I usually don’t give freemium plugins a 5, this was just so cool and set up so easily and actually works so well. I had to give this one a 5-Dragon rating.

[Dragon roar]

WHA Crossword.

All right, ClassicPress Options – and of course since the release of Gutenberg and its fallout, ClassicPraise – Classic Praise? We’ll call it ClassicPraise – I love my tripping. ClassicPress has garnered a lot of attention, and it is moving along quite nicely, and I have just started on to my first buildout of a pure ClassicPress website. So I’ve started it from the beginning, bring it down, and installing ClassicPress.

And of course this week’s plugin that I’m using for it is once I’ve started moving forward is I’m starting from the first few plugins I use and see how they work. This week’s plugin is Elementor for ClassicPress, and of course Elementor is a plugin but it’s also a theme. It’s a page builder but I wanted to see how it would work on a pure ClassicPress site, not something I converted but something I started from scratch.

Well, it installs excellently, and it sets up with no problem. So far, I’ve started building out just the front page of this site and it’s functioning just the way it should. And of course, Elementor – a fantastic plugin. I’ve started building websites from it. What I’m using for the theme for the Elementor plugin I’m using is one that was supplied to me by Jezweb at Jezweb.com.au, and I’m sure you’ve heard that name many times. He’s a great supporter of the show and he took the Hello theme and has customized it up for a much cleaner look.

I’ve left links to his Github repository for the theme if you want to go check it out, and it’s a really nice theme. I like the way it’s cleaned up the dashboard area and made it a little more usable. It’s a little confusing at first but once you get used to it, it’s fantastic. At any rate, Elementor, a fantastic plugin, and of course I’m using the pro version myself because I’m building out multiple sites on it. Go check it out. It works excellent in ClassicPress and of course it gets a 5-Dragon rating.

[Dragon roar]

All right, and a little side note about that. I did mention that I was building out my first ClassicPress website and one of the things I noticed on the install of the ClassicPress site is that it is much cleaner on its install. It has a minimal amount of junk on its install and I realized a couple of things that in there are kind of needed for new users, such as the default post, the default page, a couple of other little, miscellaneous things. But I’ve been using a plugin called Tasks After Install for a long time when I install a WordPress site from scratch. You go in and install this plugin. It removes all the junk plugins, all the junk themes – everything from the site that is all junk and leaves you just a pure, bare bones installation.

Well, what this plugin does to a ClassicPress site is it removes all the themes – the ones even specifically set for ClassicPress. It’s probably because it doesn’t recognize them as ClassicPress and they belong with the site, so it removes it all down and all you have left after you install using this Tasks After Install is the base necessity for running your dashboard area. You have nothing for frontend, so you have to go in and instantly install a theme if you want a frontend. I found it kind of interesting; it’s actually kind of a little cleaner to me for a fresh start, but all set up and well, so go check that one out.

Well, that wraps up everything here and a quick note. If you’re looking for a listing of ClassicPress-specific plugins, there’s a link in the show notes that’ll take you to the ClassicPress forum where they have a really nice listing of plugins. Right now, the list is kind of short but I’m sure it will grow more over time.

And that wraps it up for this show here, where I covered up Advanced Shipment for WooCommerce, which I gave a 3 to; Table Reservations, which I gave a 3 to; WooCommerce All Discounts, which I gave a 4 to; the WHA Crossword, which I gave a 5 to; and Elementor for ClassicPress, which I gave a 5 to.

And a couple of quick reminders… the next WordPress Meetup in Victoria is on May 21st and it will be broadcast live here on the YouTube channel, so make sure you go check it out. It’s at 6:30 p.m. For location and more information, just go to wppluginsatoz.com/meetup. It’ll take you directly to the Meetup here and the next presentation is going to be done by me and I’m going to be talking about maintenance and monitoring of your WordPress website to prevent issues.

You know, all the things you’ll want to do, plugins you’ll want to set up onto your site for monitoring your site, and this is especially useful if you’re like me and not into your websites every single day because you’ve got client work and other things interfere. You’ll want notifications if something is going wrong. So this is the stuff I’m going to be talking about. It’s going to be an interesting presentation. If you live in the Victoria area, please come down to the presentation and the Meetup, say hi to me, tell me you listen to the show. I’d be greatly appreciative. If not, well, watch us live on YouTube.

Don’t forget, subscribe to the YouTube channel for notifications of when the weekly show happens and notifications when I put up new videos. And if you have suggestions about plugins you would like to have reviewed, please submit them to the website at wppluginsatoz.com/submit and it’ll take you to the page where you can submit a plugin. You don’t have to be the developer to suggest a plugin to me. I’m always open to plugins for reviews.

And a final note to developers, if you would like to support the show and you have a premium plugin and you would like to donate a premium license to be used in a future contest, please go to wppluginsatoz.com/plugin-contest to set up all the information and donate to the show. I greatly appreciate it.

And before I head out, don’t forget after all the rolling credits I do stick around for a couple of minutes to chat with people if they want to. All right, so I’m going to let my girl take us out of here.
