We are off and I hearing from folks again and it seems all is not lost lets keep this going…. This is #4 of 52 episodes for 2020..

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:

Quiet week for Classsic press this week.

Just a note for my ClassicPress listeners please send me info to help keep the ClassicPress section full.

The Lowdown:
I fyou use any of the following Stock image suppliers Unsplash, Adobe Stock, Pixabay and Deposit Photos you will want to lookinto this plugin as it make it easy to connect your site up to them and quickly access the stock images and then iport them into your Website.

This is a freemium plugin but they have a very generous package of allowing up to 50 requests per hour not too sure if this means downloading 50 iimages or if you get to load up to 50 images to choose from per hour. On the whole it looks like the free version would serve most people well.

The Lowdown:
if you are reaching for thay elusive 100% on Google Pagespeed this may help you get there when your using Google maps. Since odly enought while Google promotes speed many of thiuer serives do nothing but slow down your site.

using this is not as simple as most google maps in that you have to build out your short code manuall it appears but it could be of great help to you.
