I’m making progress with the CP Next version I started and all is cool so far. Removed XML-RPC, Pingbacks/Trackbacks, Link Manager and updated the schema to not include the
wp_links table and replaced Gravatar with a Core Plugin for local avatars (allows custom and autogenerated avatars). I am now taking away deprecated functions…
AND I had an idea… to be more cautious with what I remove and what I don’t. The idea is to know what the community has to say about the most commonly used WP Plugins, so that I can install them and see how far they work along with the breaking changes I am introducing and also how difficult it would be to alter those plugins to make them work in the CP Next version I am working on.
Having 10 or 15 active common plugins while working on Trimming/Cleaning/Reorganizing Core seems a good idea to me. But not just random plugins… so that’s why I’m asking this!
I installed the most epic plugin in the ecosystem, which is Classic Commerce, and it works like a charm. (Big shoutout to the CC devs, it’s quite amazing!)
It would be cool if you answer to this topic with the name of the plugin, a very brief one-sentence description and maybe even a github URL if there is and why you believe it’s an important plugin for the ecosystem.
