What they say:
The Essential SEO Toolkit is a very powerful suite of tools used by Opace everyday and will be particularly beneficial in roles such as SEO, Web Development and Digital Marketing (as well as many others too). There is no charge for this tool, so why not download it, there is nothing to lose and a lot to gain!

As with any toolkit, there are a range of tools – each of which when used helps to get a different part of the job done! The tool when opened will use the current URL as its default (this can be changed) and will provide speedy data viewing for the website selected.
The settings can be modified from the Opace Essential SEO Toolkit plugin installation screen or under “Settings” in the admin panel.
The default landing screen is called “Sources”, where you will see all of the default sources added by the plugin.
When you have configured the Opace Essential SEO Toolkit settings as needed, you can then go to one of your posts or pages and use the plugin. In the right hand admin panel of the post type in question you will see the Essential SEO Toolkit meta box. Click on any of your categories to dropdown the list of sources. Click on any source to load it with the current post type URL.
The tools enclosed are divided into five default categories and provide support for numerous areas of social media and SEO.
Tools include:
Audit Tools
Backlinks Tools
Social Shares Counters

The next plugin I have for you is:

Pages in Widgets


Requires:3.5 or higher
Compatible up to:5.3.18
Released:13 May 2015
Last Updated:05 March 2020
(4.6 star out of 5)

The Lowdown;
This very useful plugin while ageing a bit is still functional in Gutenberg. What it does for you is allow you to display a page in any widget. This is useful in many ways in the case I am using it we have an intranet we are rebuilding and we need to display a couple pages in the new front page that has drag and drop widgets. The best way it works is if your page is simple and using simple text and HTML. fancy layouts do not do as well. In this case it was a page with a listing of internal documents.

The last plugin I have here today is:

Duplicate Menu


Requires:3.4.2 or higher
Compatible up to:6.5.0
Released:23 July 2012
Last Updated:12 April 2024
(4.6 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
This is a simple plugin that can save you tons of time. It is particularly useful when rebuilding and upgrading a website. This plugin allow you to go in and create a duplicate of an existing menu and then start editing it. The useful part is that during a rebuild you may need 50 to 60% of a menu but you don't want to lose the old one just yet. You might be experimenting with new menu layouts etc. This allow you to do all that without having to build the menu from scratch.

Rating 5 Dragons.

ClassicPress Options

Adding a new segment just for Classic Press since the release of Gutenberg ClassicPress has garnered a lot of attention.
I recently released a short screen cast about the conversion of a site to ClassicPress. It went very well fast and easy. Watch it here.

This week's ClassicPress plugin(s)

I will bring one or more plugins per week here as I can test them.

Well it was only a matter of time until we started seeing ClassicPress specific plugins here is the first that I have come across.

Username Protection


The Lowdown:

ClassicPress provides many helpful REST API endpoints that expose data about your site. For the most part, this is a handy feature. In the case of usernames, however, allowing this endpoint to be accessed anonymously can make your site more susceptible to brute force attacks. This plugin prevents anonymous access to the endpoint.

Rating 4 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.

Closing Out This Episode the Plugins I Covered Were:

John’s Plugins: Opace Essential SEO toolkit – 3, CarDojo Lite -3, Pages in Widgets – 5, and for CP – Username Protection – 4
