The next plugin I have for you is:

Autocomplete WooCommerce Orders

Requires:4.7 or higher
Compatible up to:6.5.5
Released:21 November 2017
Last Updated:28 June 2024
(4.6 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
WooCommerce, while a great e-commerce plugin, has some flaws things that were once in the core have been removed to be placed as premium plugins it seems. It is ever so nice when a developer decided to replace one of those items and then gives it away.

This is one of them, I seem to recall in the past WooCommerce had a setting where you could have an order marked as completed as soon as the payment was verified. I recently had to deal with this and discovered the setting seemed to be missing so I went looking and found this great little plugin that adds that function back.

Simple easy to use and well just works vs the $49 one over at WooCommerce. Many thanks to Liam over at for this contribution.

For the Third Plugin I have:

Multiple Admin Email Addresses

Requires:4.7.0 or higher
Compatible up to:5.2.21
Released:01 June 2017
Last Updated:21 May 2019
(4.2 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
From time to time when you're working on a bigger site you will have a need to have the core admin emails sent to more than one person to deal with things. WordPress does not offer any simple solution for adding more than one admin email in the setting page.

This plugin makes that an easy task for you, it adds a new block on the General settings that allows you to add as many emails as needed using a comma separated list. Simple and just works.

Rating 5 Dragons.

ClassicPress Options

Since the release of Gutenberg, and it fallout ClassicPress has garnered a lot of attention. This is a fork of WordPress and is focused on Business Websites and is looking pretty good.

This weeks ClassicPress plugin is:

Elementor Page Builder and Elementor Page Builder Pro

Requires:6.0 or higher
Compatible up to:6.5.5
Released:30 May 2016
Last Updated:26 June 2024
(4.6 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
Well I have only recently started using Elemetor and wish I had started sooner with it. This is one great page builder that is making life easy and well since I was plying in my sandbox for ClassicPress I though I would see how well this plugin performed there.

It works just as well in ClassicPress with one exception I am using the Pro version of the plugin and well it will not auto update could be a flaw in ClassicPreess but otherwise all else is great.

Rating 4 – 5 Dragons

Side note I noticed that when you are doing a search using the repository it show you right away if the plugins are compatible with your version of Classic Press. You can also search with the tag “ClassicPress” to find plugins made to work in ClassicPress
