WPWeekly Episode 165 – Contributions Galore

Since there is no guest this week, Marcus Couch and I used this opportunity to spend more time than usual with the news. We spend a considerable amount of time discussing WordPress contributions and I provide insight into my distinction between direct and indirect contributions. I share my experience of attending the first WordCamp event for Ann Arbor, MI. Last but not least, we end the show with a shout-out to HostingReviews.io, a resource filled with webhosting reviews from current or past customers without affiliate links.

Stories Discussed:

My Experience at WordCamp Ann Arbor 2014
Contributing Back to WordPress
WebDevStudios Acquires WordPress Support Services Company, Maintainn
5 years into business, Pagely is growing faster than ever

Plugins Picked By Marcus:

Duplicate Title Validation looks for posts and pages with the same name and prevents you from using the same title twice.

Flexible Widget Title enables you to hide widget titles in the frontend of WordPress, while the widget title is still visible in the backend.

WP Double Protection adds the ability to have a second password option. Instead of needing one password to login, you’ll need two.
