Johns Rant:

Its episode 459 and while we have great participation this week from you the producers I am still looking for more this does help push the sword of Damocles off to the side a bit. Keep the feedback coming….. This is #18 of 52 episodes for 2020..

As we are 18 weeks into 2020 and 7 weeks into the isolation/lock down game. It seems our government overlords are starting to come to their senses and giving us permission to finally get out into groups again here in BC starting May long weekend. Kinda reminds me of when I was a teenager and I was grounded for an extended period and then let out a little at a time. I think this has been almost as long as my record grounding as a teenager. You will just have to imagine what I did to earn that grounding..

Since tomorrow, May 8th, is VE Day this is appropriate and if you want some direct inside information about life during WW2 from a first person perspective check out DearFolksies.com letter home from someone who experienced it all.

These are strange times indeed.

So, Relax folks take a breath, go for a walk, build a garden and realize that while our world is now changed forever we will get though it. Save your sanity and your Amygdala and find out why your not gonna die by listening to the No Agenda Show

Let get to the fun we have today.

WordPress News and Info

Before we jump into the news, a quick question about WordPress.

So WordPress is moving ahead full steam with Gutenberg where does this leave you in the market? Will you be eventually adopting it as it is not going away or will you be leaving for options such as ClassicPress. Please leave me comments about your take on this.

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:

Listener Feedback / Audio Clips

A quick shout out to my biggest little fan, Johann, who is currently on home schooling detail. If he does some research and practice, could be the next great developer of some yet unknown plugin that would make life easy for all WordPress/ClassicPress users.

———–

John,

Since you mentioned about the WordPress block editor being full screen by default, and I must admit I don't like it either I went looking for a solution.

I found this blog post by one of the WordPress Core Developers on how to disable the default FullScreen mode.

https://jeanbaptisteaudras.com/en/2020/03/disable-block-editor-default-fullscreen-mode-in-wordpress-5-4/

I'm incorporating it in my plugins that I'm developing as it is confusing when you first see it.

Keep up the good work.

By the way I'm not sure that I will have any use for the Event Expresso Plugin that I won in the last contest that you had running. If you could use it keep the key.

Martin

*** request for you the producers***

Hi John.
Been a while, and hopefully everything is going well for you over there.
Wondering if I could pick your brain on a plugin needed for a client? They want to be able to send a quote from WordPress for some products and service, and have the client able to log into WP to approve/question/pay for the quote.
I didn’t see anything in Woocommerce to manage something of this scope, and was wondering if you had any other recommendations?
Keep the faith on the podcast, man. We’re still listening!
