News this week is all about the WordPress Drama

A tale of WordPress, Wix and Open Source Licensing

https://janit.wordpress.com/2016/10/30/a-tale-of-wordpress-wix-and-licensing/On October 28th the Automattic CEO Matt Mullenweg published a blog post accusing that Wix, a provider of competing services, has stolen code from the WordPress codebase. To be specific, it was about the use of a rich text editing component in the Wix mobile app:

There were some claims that Wix had not respected the GPL licensing in place for the component. They may or may not be valid, but what Matt is claiming about it being a copy is just what is going on with Open Source.

WordPress 4.7 Brings Custom Page Template Functionality to All Post Types

https://wptavern.com/wordpress-4-7-brings-custom-page-template-functionality-to-all-post-typesWordPress 4.7 will introduce support for post type templates, an exciting new feature for theme and plugin developers. Page templates, which allow developers to specify a different layout or design for a page, are nearly as old as WordPress itself. For years developers have coveted that same functionality for other post types. In fact, a plugin that attempted to create this functionality (Custom Post Template), has more than 50,000 active installs, despite not having been updated for four years.

Post type templates follow a format similar to that of the existing custom page templates. The author can specify a template name as well as the post types where the template will be available as a dropdown in the page attributes metabox. Read original article here…. wptavern.com

8 Must do steps to harden your site

Listener Feedback / Audio Clips

We have a Question from Glen Donohue looking for a plugin that does bulk edit of post:
I would sugest something like what we do on WPPlugins A to Z and use a short code creator called my short codes https://wordpress.org/plugins/my-shortcodes/ or there are plugins that do systemwide search and repalce but I have had hit and miss success with them.

Registrations for The Events Calendar

The Lowdown:
As I am starting a switchover to The Events Calendar from Modern tribe I am finding more and more plugins for it to be useful  This one is one you can use to add registration to an event and send out emails and track your registrations. The one thing is is lacking is the ability to charge for the registration other than that it is looking pretty good.

ZodiacPress

The Lowdown:
If you are into metaphysical things or run a metaphysical site this plugin is for you. It does require a GeoNames account and some setup but it could enhance your metaphysical site in many ways. it looks to give some great chart info and would be a great service to offer your visitors.

Daily Moon Forecast

The Lowdown:
This is a simple plugin that will display the daily forecast for what the moons current position is in. It tells you what sign and current position that it is in. This is another great tools if you run a metaphysical website and want to offer something different to your clients.
