Hi from Steve. Welcome to the third issue of this Friday newsletter. My aim is to give you the most helpful news and updates for WordPress publishers. If you want more regular updates, join our Facebook group.
Story #1. MediaNews Group is Embracing WordPress But Removing Comments
MediaNews Group is a major publishing group across the United States. They own over 100 newspapers and 200 other publications. Almost all the sites are using WordPress. But they may be about to remove their user comments.
Story #2. Paywall Project is a Successful Newspack Alternative
Tyler Channel runs PaywallProject which tries to keep small newspapers in business. He offers a more affordable alternative to Newspack.
More Links for WordPress publishers
- There are a lot of AI plugins for WordPress publishers but if I have to recommend one it is the ClassifAI plugin. Check out the long list of features. It generates content, ALT text, and speech-to-text. Plus it can extract data from PDF files, recommend content, and much more. Visit the ClassifAI homepage.
- We’ve released an update to PublishPress Revisions that should be useful for all publishers. There’s a new feature called “Revision Archive”. This is one place to find all the revisions for content on your site. Visit the WordPress.org listing.
Thanks for joining us for this third issue.
