WPWeekly Episode 151 – Version Control For All (Maybe)

Marcus Couch and I were joined by VersionPress developer, Borek Bernard, to give us the scoop on not only the VersionPress campaign, but what the aim is for the plugin. He answered several questions, including the controversy surrounding the indecision of whether or not the plugin will be open-source licensed. After the show, Bernard published a post providing more information on the reasons for their indecision.

Marcus and I had a passionate discussion on whether or not the trend of disabling comments is a good or bad thing for the web. We covered the news of the week and then finished out the show with his plugin picks of the week.

Stories Discussed:

VersionPress Plugin looking for Crowd Funding
GoDaddy Announces $100 Million IPO Intentions
Clef Partners With Softaculous To Provide 2-Step Authentication For Automated WordPress Installs
Why Comments Still Matter
WP Engine to Sponsor Two Full-Time WordPress Core Contributors

Plugins Picked By Marcus:

Facebook Conversion Pixel – Add Facebook Conversion Pixels to Posts, Pages, or any other custom post types.

Download HTML TinyMCE Button – A button is added to the TinyMCE toolbar which will instantly send a command to your browser to save the content to a new .HTML file

Page Specific Stylesheets – Adds a box allowing for the addition of page-specific and post-specific CSS stylesheets. It reduces the need to edit and clutter the style.css file.
