Starting out I have a plugin that I have yet to use but felt you would want to know it exists. Keep in mind the ratings are based off the descriptions on their site and using their demo if available.

WP Suite

https://wpsuite.convertri.com/

What they say:
Manage multiple WordPress sites from one dashboard.

Update plugins and themes in one place…

Manage comments & various wordpress actions in one place.

Here's what you can do…

[+] Install Plugins & Themes.

[+] Manage Users & Content / Posts & Pages.

[+] Manage Media – Images & Videos.

[+] Change WordPress Settings & Update Software.

[+] Manage Categories & Tags.

and many other tasks …

What I have to say:
From looking this over I do not think it is an improvement over CMS commander aside from the one time fee. But, after 10 years of doing this I have discovered one thing those that only charge a one time fee end in one of two places. Closing down and disappearing due to lack of sustainability or they start charging a monthly/annul fee to stay in business. So quick research on this showed that is is not overwhelmingly received system and well it was hard to find anything about it aside from the flashy sales page.

Rating 3 Dragons.

The Lowdown:
Yes this is a pretty old plugin but you can check it out here https://2030countdown.com/ running on a ClassicPress website. Add nothing to your site aside from a button that activates the Zombies and then you use your mouse button to shoot them as they slide across the screen.

The Lowdown:
Those of us who have been around a while will remember the Arcade Classic game Space Invaders well the little green men are patterned off of that glowing 8-bit scanline effects invaders that float about your screen. They are attracted to your mouse clicks and again do nothing really to add to your site but relieve the boredom of site creation. Again an older plugin you can check out here https://2030countdown.com/

The Lowdown:
This is a take on the classic video game that helped start it all and I spent may quarters and hours playing when i was a kid.

This one has been in the WordPress repository so long without an update it might be one of the first 9k plugins I saw back when I started the show. It still work great even on a ClassicPress install using Elementor. You set it as a widget and can give some much needed info on which keys are needed to make it fly and just have fun blasting your site apart. By adding in the JellyFish Invaders you get additional targets to destroy that move around .

Have fun and don't get too lost over at https://2030countdown.com/

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:

News:
Listen to the Interview with James Nylen and Michelle Coe from ClassicPress Two of the Leads for the ClassicPress Team, Michelle Coe (lead designer), and James Nylen (lead developer) it is a great interview so follow the link to listen to it.
