All-in-One WP Migration Google Drive Extension (Premium Plugin $99)

What they say:

  • Export and import to and from Google Drive
  • Lifetime license with lifetime updates
  • Use on any number of websites that you own
  • Backup scheduler with hourly, daily, and weekly options
  • Unlimited Extension included
  • WP CLI commands
  • Premium support

Google Drive Extension extends the functionality of the All-in-One WP migration plugin, connecting it to your Google Drive account. This facilitates importing and exporting your website/network of sites directly between your Google Drive cloud space and your website.
The tool works as an extension to the plugin, so All-in-One WP Migration plugin is required to be installed in order to work.
The Google Drive Extension settings appear in the dropdown of the All-in-One WP Migration plugin in WordPress once the extension is successfully installed and activated:
Extension for All in One WP Migration that enables using Google Drive for imports and exports.

This is a great solution if you already have All in One Migration. By using a google drive you are outside the hosting environment and you do not have to locally deal with your clients backups. It lets you schedule the frequency of backups, works great.

What I say:
There is very little info on their website aside from price and its basics, they do have a pretty good documentation on how to use it there though.

Plugins Garbage Collector

Requires: or higher
Compatible up to:
Released:01 January 1970
Last Updated:01 January 1970
(0 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
Upgrading an older WP website or inheriting an older website will at time require cleaning up the Database of leftover and orphan tables from long removed plugin that do not cleanup after themselves kinda like toddlers.

Looking at the DB you may not easily be able to determine which table belong and which ones have been abandoned and left for dead. This plug help with that clean up process. It scan's though your database and your plugins to determine which plugins are still using which tables.

With this list in hand you are now able to start the cleanup process and improve you Db performance. It works very well but be careful it may list tables that could still be in use alsways make a backup of your database before starting just to be safe.

ClassicPress Options

ClassicPress is a fast growing fork of WordPress that is starting to come into its own. ClassicPress is focused on Business Websites runs fast and is looking pretty good. 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.

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. Currently there are not a lot of ClassicPress specific plugins but I do know it is going to grow and I'll have to expand this segment then. Who knows, it could take over the whole show.

This week for ClassicPress I have:

Listen to the Interview with James Nylen and Michelle Coe from ClassicPress Two of the Leads for the ClassicPress Team, Michelle Coe (lead designer), and James Nylen (lead developer) it is a great interview so follow the link to listen to it.
