When Being A Copy Cat Is A Good Thing

Finding a good WordPress plugin is harder than it sounds. There’s a lot of junk out there but it’s still possibly to uncover a gem of something that delivers on not only features and functionality but uses optimized code that won’t slow down your site or throw conflicts with other plugins and themes.

I published a review on one such plugin at ArtsHacker yesterday: a menu duplicator from SevenSpark.

If you’ve ever had to make a copy of a navigation menu, you know how time consuming it can become. This plugin will let you make copies in minutes and spoiler alert: it won’t bog down your site with junk code and database bloat.

WordPress Plugin Review: Carbon Copy Menu Duplicator

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
