In this short episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I discuss a handful of news stories making headlines. We discuss a recent security update to the WP eCommerce plugin, Upvato disappearing only to reappear in the near future, and Nashville, TN hosting WordCamp US in 2017 and 2018. Last but not least is Marcus’ plugin picks of the week.

Stories Discussed:

WP eCommerce 3.11.4 Patches SQL Injection Vulnerability
Upvato Backup Service Confirms Files Are Lost, Plans to Relaunch on New Provider
Nashville to Host WordCamp US 2017-2018

Plugins Picked By Marcus:

Show Featured Image Size in Admin TopBar displays the image size for the featured image in the admin top bar. This makes it convenient to know how large features images need to be without looking it up.

WP-MQTT connects WordPress to the Internet of Things. This plugin can automatically send MQTT messages to compatible devices when something happens on your site. MQTT is a machine-to-machine (M2M) / Internet of Things connectivity protocol. It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport.

Hello Trumpy is a plugin aimed at making WordPress great again!

  1. Great picks Marcus.

    Hello Trumpy should come pre-installed with every new instance of WordPress from now on, replacing Hello Dolly. Because it will make WordPress Even Greater.

    Didn’t know about WP-MQTT, looks neat.

    1. Would be so much better if people started using WordPress for what WordPress was created for, news and blogs ;)

  2. You actually thought the Trumpy plugin deserved air time? Wow. I’m not condoning Trump. Just sayin’ this plugin is basically useless. What’s next? “Delicate Liberal Snowflake” plugin? Sheesh.
