Johns Rant:

This is #24 of 52 episodes for 2020. Its Episode 465 and we are just about halfway though the year and with another 6mth's to go it is time to step it up.

And as we are now 24 weeks into 2020 and 13 weeks of the Rona, no one really knows what the world has in store for us. It has gone from pretty optimistic at the beginning of the year to now there is nothing anyone can do that is right. The world is being torn asunder for ludicrous things.

We are only a couple days from the longest day of the year and here's hoping it brings some great changes to the craziness we have experienced the last few months.

These are indeed strange times to be alive and I am doing what I can to prepare my kids and grandkids for what is coming.
The best things you can do is relax take a breath, buy a gun, go for a walk, build a garden and realize things not nearly as bad as the news says they are. So save your sanity and your Amygdala and find out why your not gonna die by listening to the No Agenda Show

I have had a couple people take me up on the guest host offer and they seems to go well enough, If you would like to join me as a guest host on the show, please reach out to me at You can also go to

Let's get to the fun we have today.

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.

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

Listener Feedback / Audio Clips

Hello john
After I heard your last show you spoke about sending content or ideas. I thought of an idea you could add your top plugin for a category. I thought this could be easy since these are plugins you use every day. For example your favorite google calendar plugin or your favorite contact plugin. As the list grows you could then add it to your newsletter, as a list.

    Great podcast. I updated my sites’ PHP and it sent my site a bit crazy, the formatting was out. It wasn’t compatible with my theme apparently. Time for a new theme methinks. Cheers
