Plugins Confirmed Working on ClassicPress v1

A natural follow-up here would be to 1) explain that ClassicPress uses the same function names, filters, etc as the WordPress update system, and 2) ask if they will add support for ClassicPress updates.

Thanks for contacting InfiniteWP!

Another reply from InfiniteWP:

Yes, we would definitely consider adding full support for ClassicPress in the near future. Right now, our developers are busy with the development work for version 3. So for now, I will add your request to our Trello board and based on the popularity of the requests, we’ll consider implementing it in the future.

Username Protection – built specifically for ClassicPress. Note this plugin is on GitHub, not the WP repo.

Just letting you know that our security plugin, Shield Security v7, now fully supports ClassicPress v1. This also includes support for the core file scanner that would normally work with WordPress core files.

Plugin on WordPress.org - https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-simple-firewall/

No need for you to filter out duplicates @Zooey; I can easily do it in the master spreadsheet.

Estimated Read Time is built specifically for ClassicPress – for displaying estimated read times on articles and summaries. Located on GitHub, not the WP repo.

Carbon Copy is another utility plugin I whipped up for ClassicPress. It allows you to duplicate posts, pages, or custom post types (taxonomy and meta, too) with one-click.

A post was split to a new topic: Yoast re CP Support

Is there a list somewhere of plugins whose authors have made any kind of statement or even commitment about CP support?

Yes, we are compiling a list of what we see as important plugins to have, and some solutions as they become available…

Nice touch in https://wordpress.org/plugins/gwolle-gb/#description :

“Compatibility
This plugin is compatible with ClassicPress.”

This should become the standard behaviour. Recommended for all plugin developers.

Every plugin that doesn’t have Gutenberg code is compatible by default, so, this isn’t really necessary – certainly not to the level of a standard. :wink: The standard recommendation for ClassicPress plugins will probably be to upload them to the ClassicPress Plugin Directory, though I’m just guessing.

@Code_Potent Yes, but I am 99% sure, that a person who affirms in WP plugin directory about compatibility with CP, will upoad this plugin to WP plugin directory too. And, knowing WP attitude, such statement is quite brave :slight_smile: We need such affirmations.

Yes, I agree… it’s great to see. Not only that there are developers supporting CP, but that they are also giving some publicity within WP to the existence and acceptance of CP as an alternative. Good stuff.
