A while back, someone reported that maybe WP NoteUp wasn’t working in the latest 4.7. Turns out there was major thing going wonky.

As a part of Five for the Future at WebDevStudios we get to work on Open Source WordPress projects every last Friday of the month all day, and as a result I was able to help the 7000+ Easy Photo Album get a working plugin. Easy Photo Album is a plugin that I crossed while helping … [Read more…]
WP NoteUp, dubbed “Cube” (read more about Ice Cube) was just released to WordPress.org!
