What is new/different in ClassicPress v1?Link to this section

Details of the changes in ClassicPress v1 are available in on our forums.

Will my current plugins and themes work in ClassicPress?Link to this section

All current plugins and themes which work in WordPress 4.9.x, will work in ClassicPress v1. If you’re experiencing something different, that’s possibly a bug with ClassicPress, and we’d appreciate you reporting it in the support forums, Slack, or GitHub.

There have also been a few occasions where a plugin update has broken compatibility with both WordPress 4.9.x and ClassicPress. Whatever the case may be, we recommend contacting the plugin developers and asking them to make their plugin compatible with WordPress 4.9.x (and therefore ClassicPress).

I’m a developer, will I need to learn any new language or framework to develop in ClassicPress?Link to this section

Not unless you want to! We have some exciting features planned for version 2 and beyond, but they will all be optional and fully backwards-compatible.

How can I indicate my plugin/theme is compatible with CP?Link to this section

Plugins and themes should be tagged ClassicPress to allow users to easily find them when searching on the Wordpress.org site or repositories via the ClassicPress admin panel.

A number of plugins have already been tagged as compatible with ClassicPress and can easily be found in the WordPress Plugin Repository.

I think I found a bug – what do I do?Link to this section
