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.
It’s the holiday season and a time for giving thanks; remember those in need during this time.
Look for a new segment near the end of the show dedicated to ClassicPress you can find out more at ClassicPress.net
With that lets dive right into the meat and potatoes
Today I have 4 great plugins for you.
To start off I have a couple plugins 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.

What they say about it:
The White Label CMS plugin is for developers who want to give their clients a more personalized and less confusing content management system.
Customize The Login Page
Impress your clients with a branded login page. Add yours or your client’s logo, add a background image and even control the CSS if you wish. Personalizing the back end of WordPress will give your client the feeling that this is their website, not a generic website.Add Your Branding to the Header and Footer
Stay top of mind with your client by adding your branding to the admin bar, menu or footer.
Customize the Dashboard
Are you tired of telling your clients to ignore everything on the Dashboard, but then still receive questions because they’re confused or have broken something?
With White Label CMS you can clear everything from the dashboard and add in your own dashboard panel. You can even add your own RSS feed so your clients can be kept up to date with what you are doing in your business. Which is much more relevant to your client than where and when the next WordPress Meetup is.
Add your own welcome dashboard, and now you can use an Elementor or Beaver Builder template to make it look beautiful.
Control with Menus Appear for Your Client
We have created a new feature called the White Label CMS admin which allows you to hide menus for other users. Setup is simple and gives clients admin access with some restrictions making it harder for them to stumble across settings and mess up the site.
Setup a Site in Seconds Using the Wizard
Setting up a customized dashboard is easy and quick using the White Label CMS Wizard. With just a few clicks, you can add your branding and your client’s details and be up and running in seconds.
There is so much that you can do with White Label CMS, but we want the experience to be simple. The Wizard allows you to set up a clutter-free, customized dashboard without having to scroll through all of the options that are available to you.
They also have a Video User Manuals plugin which is a paid plugin that is available.
Which it is Gutenberg ready and will have Elementor videos in there also this year.

The last plugin I have here today is:
Well it has to start sometime: bringing you plugins for Gutenberg blocks. This is one of many to come, I am sure. This one has some simple block for you to use currently 9 with more planning to be added. You get a Testimonial Block, Alert notification, Call to action, card image and text, image content, Heading and sub heading, Block Quotes, Testimonial slider and Click to Tweet.
A pretty good start for blocks

Adding a new segment just for Classic Press since the release of Gutenberg ClassicPress has garnered allot of attention.
I will be releasing a short screen cast about the conversion of a site to ClassicPress and it looked to go very well fast and easy.
This week’s ClassicPress plugin/s
I will bring one or more plugins per week here as I can test them.
This week we have one of my staples on all websites.
This has been a staple on my sites for quite a while. While they have made many changes to the interface it still seems to function pretty well. Testing it on ClassicPress shows it to be working well. I have been using the free version for a long time now and on a few sites the premium version. I have not noticed much of a difference. On a couple sites I have seen it do some live blocking of attacks.
Rating 5 Dragons.
