Further to discussions on Slack, it’s been suggested that we put together a page or post on the ClassicPress website on the subject of “ClassicPress for WordPress 4.9 users”.
The main purpose of this page is to target the c.25% of WordPress sites still running WP 4.9.x or less. The new page will be optimized for “wordpress 4.9” or just “wp 4.9”. A quick Google for these terms generates c.26m and c.126m results respectively (in the UK at least).
The sort of topics we’d want to cover include:
- Why switch to CP
- What we’ve done to make the migration as easy as possible (e.g. migration plugin, Installatron, Softaculous, LiteSpeed)
- Hosting provision for CP (e.g. DigitalOcean, Web242, BaseZap, BaptistHost, etc…)
- Most plugins & themes work in CP, new ones being developed all the time. Exciting opportunity for developers…
But there’s obviously lots more we could cover.
So, with that in mind, we’re looking for feedback about what we should talk about on that page, bearing in mind that our aim is to get WP 4.9.x users to switch to CP.
All suggestions welcome.
