We are now 27 weeks into 2020 and 16 weeks of the Rona, the surge has arrive and its going to get you, duck and run for cover.
This is #27 of 52 episodes for 2020. Its Episode 468 we are now past the halfway mark of the year and on the downward slide to the end of this very interesting year. After lots of reflections mostly at my oasis that I built at The Rogues Tavern I have realized you can let this year get to you or you can grab all the great opportunities that are being tossed about right now. I Choose to grab the opportunities..
While the Rona, Riots, protests and more are not going to go away anytime soon there are still ways we can make our own little part of the world a better place to be and well if everyone did that life would begin to change back to what it was. You can help fix this by starting in your own little corner of the world and fix what you can there then start inspiring others to do the same around you. We worry way too much about things we cannot control, we accept being told to do things that may not be in our best interest. Well!! Stop that and work on your best interest and at the same time respect others, the rewards will follow.
These are indeed strange times to be alive and I am doing what I can to prepare my kids and grand-kids for this world we live in.
Things you can do to help yourself start by taking a big relaxing breath. Then buy a gun, learn to hunt, build a garden, stock your house and realize things are not nearly as bad as the news says they are.
You can also save your sanity and your Amygdala and find out why your not gonna die by listening to the No Agenda Show

Or something I may not have thought of.
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:
ZigPress – ZP Recent Tweets – https://www.zigpress.com/plugins/zp-recent-tweets/
ZP Recent Tweets is a free ClassicPress plugin to fetch tweets from an account and display them in a widget.
It uses the Twitter API v1.1 and stores tweets in a cache. It will read tweets from your database and doesn’t query Twitter.com for every page load to avoid rate limiting. You can set how often you want to update the cache.
This is from May 2020
ZigPress – ClassicPress free plugin roundup May 2020 – https://www.zigpress.com/classicpress-free-plugin-roundup-may-2020/
Article with list of ClassicPress plugins.
ZigPress – ZP Multiple Roles – https://www.zigpress.com/plugins/zp-multiple-roles/
This free ClassicPress plugin allows administrators to allocate multiple roles to users.
The capabilities of a user with more than one role will be a combination of all the capabilities of the roles they have.
The plugin takes advantage of the fact that internally, ClassicPress and WordPress support multiple roles per user, they just don’t provide for it in the admin UI. ZP Multiple Roles provides the missing UI components.
Just a note for my ClassicPress listeners please send me info to help keep the ClassicPress section full.

This is another plugin by the maker of Simple Giveaways. It has both a free and premium version. This is another plugin that looks to help you with promotions on your site. It will allow you to create sponsor packages and then assign them to various content on your site and as the sponsors come in they are then displayed with that content.
Rating 4 Dragons
This is a great forum plugin; it is lightweight and pretty easy to get configured up and running. There are a lot of customizations you can do with it to get the look and feel you want and if you dig into the CSS you can hide some aspects that might not fit into the site you're building.

Migrate Guru: Migrate & Clone WordPress Free
What Angel has to say:
Migrate Guru is the fastest way to migrate WordPress sites. It simplifies difficult WordPress migrations from one hosting company to another. It automatically rewrites URLs, bypasses import-export scripts, and handles serialized data. It also can clone WordPress sites without any manual work, add-ons, or additional tools.
I would say he rate's it at a 5 Dragon
