From long before Drop-ins were first introduced to Marketers Delight, it has been a goal to make delivering new updates to you in a seamless way that required minimal effort on both ends.

It should not be cumbersome to change the code base or build new features into our products, nor should it be any harder than sending an email to deliver the new version neatly packaged to your websites.

Conversely, when you update your software you should have confidence that things will just work and existing systems won’t break and any new features only improve your existing capabilities.

In a stunning announcement to merge both of those worlds together, I am excited to share with you the all-new MD theme + drop-ins upgrades system in Marketers Delight 5.4!

One-click theme + drop-in updates from the WordPress dashboard

Upgrade Drop-ins from WordPress dashboard

Similar to how you interact with WordPress Plugins you can now get seamless updates to MD Drop-ins with the new upgrade notifications in your dashboard.

…ugh, more stuff to update?

It can be scary to update things so much effort went into developing the concept of Drop-ins over the years before arriving at this point today.

Unlike many WP plugins, MD drop-ins are built in a harmonious way with the MD theme that keep them extremely lightweight, stable, and easy to continue building upon.

With a marriage between your powerful Drop-ins and a one-click way to keep them up-to-date, I am happy to be able to bring to you the full realization of what the MD marketing framework can become.

Get a quick view of new updates from the MD Dashboard

The way you connect your website to your MD.com has been updated to be far more seamless, and entering your license key will make your site eligible to receive these new one-click updates of everything related to MD:

Out of the box, all built-in Drop-ins that came with your download of Marketers Delight will already start receiving new updates when ready.

I am happy to tell you that any other of your favorite drop-ins from the official Drop-ins Library will also receive upgrades through the same system and will remain active for the duration of your license period.

While this was a massive development undertaking and we have great plans to continue to expand upon the convenience of this new upgrades system, we are already looking ahead and delivering brand new drop-ins and updates to existing ones next.
