In Episode #15 of the WP Elevation podcast I had the pleasure of chatting with Alex King from Crowd Favorite – one of the true gentlemen of the WordPress community. Alex is one of the original contributors to WordPress and is also well-known for several plug-ins including Twitter Tools and the Disqus commenting system plug-in among others. Alex has had some personal challenges in recent times and I thank him for speaking openly and honestly with me in this interview which is full of gold.

Show Notes

A few days after this interview he emailed me with a link to his brand-new Admin Column View plug-in which allows you to view yiur WordPress pages in column view similarly to how you browse your desktop files. His company crowd favourite also makes Capsule, a journal for code developers and RAMP,  a platform for deploying content between staging and live environments for WordPress.

I am co-founder of WP Elevation and Video User Manuals. The reason I get out of bed every day is because I love helping WordPress consultants build a successful business. I do this through webinars, coaching, speaking, consulting and heading up the awesome community at WP Elevation.
