It’s a big release day for My Calendar! A simultaneous release of the next major version of My Calendar and the next major version of My Calendar Pro. The free updates to My Calendar include major rewrites to how time & dates are stored and calculated. This will make working with time zones considerably easier, as there will always be a UTC-centered version of the date available for your events.

The other day, Mike Gifford shared a post from Small Business Trends that talked about how free accessibility plugins cause problems for small business, in which my plug-in WP Accessibility was cited.

WP Accessibility is definitely different from most of these other so-called accessibility toolbars, in that I’ve worked hard […]

Mr. Borghi said that he was happy to make his gallery‚Äôs website accessible and that he was able to do it with a free widget from WordPress, which added narration, larger fonts and keyboard navigation. But he said he was not sure if that made him fully compliant; the lawsuit against his gallery is still pending. NYTimes.com, 2/18/2019 Mr. Borghi is not certain whether adding this unidentified WordPress plug-in made him fully compliant – but I can readily suggest an […]
