In this episode, Marcus Couch and I discuss the news making headlines including, WordCamp Miami in its 9th year, OSTraining partnering with GoDaddy to release training videos, and why plugins sometimes disappear from the WordPress plugin directory. We also provide an update on the REST API vulnerability that is actively being exploited to deface webpages.

Why Plugins Sometimes Disappear From the WordPress Plugin Directory

Plugins Picked By Marcus:

Mobile Featured Image allows users to add a featured image specifically for mobile devices. The new image can be a resized version of your featured image or an entirely new image targeted especially at mobile viewers.

FB Messenger Bot for WooCommerce automatically messages clients from your Facebook page, WooCommerce, or Gravity Forms. The plugin creates a ‘send to Facebook’ button at the end of the WooCommerce Sales process or on the Gravity Forms thank you page.

Restrict New Users by Domain makes it easy to whitelist or blacklist email domains that new users can use when registering. If using the whitelist, only new users who enter an email domain on the whitelist will be allowed to create an account. If using the blacklist, a user who enters an email domain on the blacklist will be unable to register.
