I was initially going to reply in New ClassicPress plugin: ZP Image Control but this seems more appropriate now.
Yes, the ecosystem is crucial and I think it’s great to see so many plugins being created. Personally I think we need more themes too. I know this may seem counter-intuitive to some, but I believe a “Divi-lite” sort of theme would be of benefit too. Any takers?
What I would like to see more than anything is a bigger push to get people using CP.
There are many people still unaware of CP but I think we can all help with this. I think we can all use our own contacts (even competitors) to get the word out there. Let people know that you’re no longer developing sites in WP but you’re using CP instead. Mention it in tweets, posts, blogs, anywhere. Possibly even put a “Built with ClassicPress” comment in the footer.
I’d also like to see a showcase area on the main CP website.
Obviously, this is a really bad time for everyone right now but things have stalled more than I would have liked. Briefly:
- Classic SEO is pretty stable already. I have been working on some minor improvements recently and I do hope to release an RC very soon.
- Again, CC is pretty stable but there are a few issues yet to be addressed. I need to catch up with James on this which I will endeavour to do.
As for CP core, I also agree that it suits most of my needs already. There are some improvements that would be nice but these are already covered in the petitions.
