Now That We Have the Full ClassicPress Release

Thankfully, the world is still here. The WordPress project continues unabated. Some really cool stuff is being rolled out in the WordPress community with regard to plugins. And ClassicPress (I will probably often refer to it as “CP”) has finally released their full version 1.0.0 with a WordPress-like security release v.1.0.1 almost immediately following. Okay, […]

Oversight or just sloppiness?

Telling the truth isn’t a bad thing. If that truth provides collateral benefits to businesses and bloggers alike, be happy.

Let that be something that benefits you, ClassicPress, as a project.

If a Person is Not Interested or Not Alive, What Then?

What is it all about? Why do we do what we do? What happens when life isn’t what it was yesterday? Where do we go from here? What happens when plugins I depend upon for functionality no longer have a developer? What happens if the person who wholly owns a project is either no longer […]

I read a blog post by WordPress Co-Founder Matt Mullenweg today. I wasn’t too surprised by what he was saying about the implementation of Gutenberg into WordPress core, and I wouldn’t hold it against him if he touted that propaganda across the universe. He’s already doing it across the globe. In my opinion, the post […]
