This week we sit down with Randy Walker to dive into the world of WordPress and ask the question, why is WordPress still important? Before we start in on WordPress, Randy has a new podcasting mic to talk about, the M2 MicTrak from Zoom. We then discuss staging for upgrades and development work, focusing on transitioning to full-site editing on WordPress. Along the way, we’ll explore some indispensable plugins such as Redirection, Podcast Importer, and the dynamic duo of Contact Form 7 + Flamingo. So, grab your headphones and join us as we unravel the mysteries of staging, upgrades, and all things WordPress with our special guest, Randy Walker (a little AI help here!) Thanks for listening!
