WPWeekly Episode 217 – The Tale of Jeff Matson

In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I are joined by Jeff Matson who writes and maintains documentation for Rocketgenius. Matson tells us how he became involved with WordPress and the community. We learn how he’s transitioned from working in an office everyday to an office being optional. Last but not least, we discuss how important mental health is and share tips to maintain a healthy balance.

Plugins Picked By Marcus:

WordPress Video Overlay Ads, by Ensar from Istanbul, creates an advertisement overlay area over YouTube video embeds. You can insert banner ads, text, polls, HTML or JavaScript code to the overlay.

Simple Insta Post automatically creates a post in WordPress from a post on Instagram by connecting through a secure API connection. The picture is added to the post and to the media gallery while the photo’s caption is used as the content of the post.

WP Facebook Pixel, by Jacob Hulse, adds an area where users can insert Facebook’s new conversion pixel. Once added, the pixel is added to all posts and pages.
