Help Test ClassicPress v2.0

Originally published at:

ClassicPress v2.0 nightly is available for testing and is based on WordPress v6.2. There is no block editor (Gutenberg) or Full Site Editing (FSE). Help us test it.


Yes, installed. Now I’ll give it a try and see how it goes. However, you could have changed the admin panel a bit to make a distinction from WordPress and previous versions. Maybe just the color even! :slight_smile:


It has been installed, and I feel great at the moment. I hope to add a Chinese language to the Site Language, thank you

Ya a new look will be nice

We will start to work on translations soon. I will let you know.

Going to install a test drive with my current blog content and see how it goes :slight_smile:

I am currently running ClassicPress V2.x on a sub domain and testing activitypub, friends and webfinger plugins to post to mastodon and Firefish instances. Posts appear in the feed and commenting is both from the Fediverse to ClassicPress and vice versa. If a comment is made, with an image from the fediverse to ClassicPress the image does not appear in the comments.

I have noticed that there can be a lag between the time a post is posted and the time it is recognised by fediverse instances.

Welcome, Richard. Thank you for taking the time to share the feedback. I assume these issues are limited to ClassicPress, and everything works as expected in WordPress?

Are these the plugins you were testing?

We can test and see if there is anything we can do to correct the issues.

Yes, for all three plugins. I am currently experimenting so I’m learning, rather than filled with expectations.

Before answering I ran a quick test post again. When I post from classicpress it shows up almost instantly on but takes time on I think this has more to do with server load than an issue with the plugins or classicpress.

I post once a day with wordpress so I need to experiment more regularly to see if I see a difference in behaviour. I know that switching from version 1.6 to 2.0 already made ClassicPress interacting with the Fediverse more reliable.

Thanks for sharing. I did plan on testing integration with Fediverse but didn’t get around to it yet. If you run into any issues, don’t hesitate to post here. I’ll post if I find any issues in my testing.

I test posted this morning and it was instant with techhub social and Firefish. The post showed up fast, and the comments were fast too.
If someone replies from mastodon and firefish it’s quick, but if you reply from classicpress to those comments propagation is slow.
