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.

John’s Intro:

A New Day is Dawning prepare yourself for the change!

With great appreciation for the No Agenda Show for their inspiration of ideas and the occasional stolen sound clip.

This is a value for value show and I look forward to everyone providing some value back.

Ambers’ Rant:

This is #32 of 52 episodes for 2021. Its Episode 525, and this week is a little different. Due to an unexpected death in our family this last week, we have found ourselves without the time or ability to do the usual show this week.

Though we wanted to make sure that there is something here for our listeners and viewers! Make sure you know we haven’t forgotten about you.

A few things that we wanted to let you know are: the contest will go for an extra week, no winner will be chosen this week, and there is some news for you to check out, though not as much as usual. This show was pre-recorded, so the YouTube show is not live this time. We will be back with our full, regular live show for Thursday, August 26th! And we look forward to seeing you then!

In the mean time, remember to get yourself out there and into the sunshine before it vanishes for the winter, and make sure to give that relative you don’t see often a call just to say hi. Family is always worth setting down whatever you are currently working on just to say hi and to send them your love.


We have some news from the world of WordPress for you today!

News this week:

Sent in by a listener
Canadian VPN provider Windscribe admits seized Ukrainian servers weren’t encrypted – Windscribe, a Canadian-based VPN provider, says it realized two of its servers that were seized last year by Ukrainian authorities were unencrypted, leaving open the possibility that, at least temporarily, someone could have accessed traffic. Since discovering the incident earlier this month the company has been overhauling its infrastructure to improve security.

Rejection of ‘WP’ Prefix Plugins – Worries over the possible abuse of the the TradeMark, WordPress is experimenting with refusing plugin submissions with the ‘WP’ prefix.

Further discussion on Gutenberg Project lead Matias Ventura on the Barrier to Entry – I seem to have missed the first part of the article last week, though from what I am getting from this article, there is a barrier on entering into the WordPress world. And Gutenberg is considered part of this barrier. Interesting article, worth your time!

New BoilerPlate helps to speed up ‘Nearly Headless’ WordPress themes – This is a pretty nifty idea! If ‘headless themes’ are something you are interested in, then this will certainly be right up your alley! Anything to save a little time eh?

Discord malware targeting gamer’s – This sucks, I like Discord. And I know A LOT of gamer’s! Ah well. Be aware, check this out, be sure not to fall for this.

The extras – for even more extra news, check out our Facebook, or Twitter page!

This is the extra news stuff that someone out there might find interesting. To read more, you can head on over to the show notes or newsletter and check it out! If you find something to add for next show, send me a link at

I didn’t find anything extra this week that caught my eye, but this spot will always be available for anything that you, our producers, would like to send it and share with the world!

Off we go into the meat and potatoes, Into the depths of plugin depravity…..

ClassicPress Options

ClassicPress is growing really well, but I just don’t have the time to add reviews on ClassicPress myself. I am always open to reviews sent in by listeners; though unless there is a review sent into me on ClassicPress, I am not going to do more than mention that ClassicPress is a thing, and here are some resources. I hope some listeners out there find this information useful!

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. 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, I just have not time to help them in getting it out there.

ClassicPress News:

The article mentioned on last weeks show.

A post from a new ClassicPress user who migrated fro WordPress 5.7 to 5.8 and then to ClassicPress
A users personal experience of going through the migration, an interesting read.

The First Release Candidate for ClassicPress 1.3.0 is available!
For more information about what’s included, and how to help, checkout…/classicpress-1-3…/3356
Happy Testing!
