John’s Rant: What to rant about?
We have a winner in the previous giveaway from Barn2 media for the WooCommerce Password Protected Categories and will announce it on the next show as well as what the next contest will be.
We also have more contests coming for premium licenses from generous plugin developers so stay tuned.
Make sure you checkout the WPSupport store. where you can get direct access to some of the best plugins we have reviewed located all in one place. We do not host the plugins but provide the link to download it direct from WordPress.org or the plugin developer, and they may occasionally have an affiliate link but not too often since that adds a whole new layer of work to what I have to do.
For developers who find value in what I am doing here please donate that value back to the show.

Something I was recently made aware of and seems to be an ongoing issue for many websites and I can see as a problem that will start to occur again and again as time goes on. This problem is with old slugs and is more problematic in older sites as well as sites running ecommerce with lots of products and lots of changes happening and using posts/products with similar names.
the problem is that when people hit one page/product expecting one thing they are redirected to another page. This looks to be caused by the old post slug built into WordPress with redirects a query to what it things is the correct place. This is caused by the old slugs.
This plugin help you remove those old slugs without having to go into the data base.

This plugin is a WordPress core feature-plugin that adds cropping to background images for parity with header images. For this particular feature the implementation is quite simple, but it's starting out as a plugin to gauge user interest in this feature and whether the feature improves the user experience of background images
