Testing Threads…

Here’s a test of that idea… This is the first TEST entry in creating a threaded status. To expand on any idea or news event as they happen, you can now create threads in your status to keep them up to date. This allows you to use streams as pages for updating a news/story event, or gradually documenting an idea or goal over time.

Stream update

Remember this screenshot of the Stream post editor from a few days ago? You’ll notice a select box at the top of the editor that allowed you to choose the type of post to share — status, post, image, video, or other. This was ok, but not ideal. I redesigned the experience to treat every post as a status, and if you enter a post ID, the Stream will embed it into your status and detect which post type to format it as. Less decisions, more automation – a big deal!

MD Popups Admin Redesign

Amongst the last details to make MD4.8.4 ready to go, you can now expect a slightly redesigned Popups settings in the WP admin. I have bigger plans to expand this feature into something more powerful, but it doesn’t hurt to clean it up a little in the meantime. Also new: The Stream, redesigned Dashboard, hooks, and more.

Code snippets in the MD labs

Building out the new MD Labs page (warning: under construction!) on the Marketers Delight site. This will become a full membership hub for all members of the MD Labs, and the place where you will soon get the greatest custom development resources you’ve never seen before. First things first is to start with the foundation of it all: the revamped code snippets library!

Building MD into a membership

Pay attention over the next couple of weeks as I rebuild this site.

All kinds of new MD content and releases will follow sooner than you think.

This year I’m going to the next level. Welcome to the MD Labs.

#NoCacheNovember

Let’s play a game this month called #NoCacheNovember. The goal is to find out if your site can survive a whole month without a cache plugin enabled. Cache plugins improve site performance but tend to cover up big mistakes that lie under-the-hood (and make it hard to see new changes!). What will you learn about the health your site by disabling it for a month? Find out during #NoCacheNovember!

Marketers Delight 4.8.4 New!

MD4.8.4 adds the exciting new Stream feature, a redesigned admin panel, and other useful enhancements.

See what's new:
  • The Stream is a new feature that allows you to post quick updates, share posts, and more. Activate the Stream on your site from the Features Manager in your WP admin.
  • The MD admin panel has been revamped to make crucial site settings much easier to find.
  • Use the new md_has_content_box filter to remove the content box from any page.

Start the day

Starting the work day by setting up a new site on MD for a small client project then moving to work on a LearnDash integration into another new site later. The best way I’ve found to keep improving the core of MD is to use it on different kinds of websites and plugins, then pass that knowledge back into the product. The secret to any success I’ve found as a small theme shop owner is to keep all of the work I do connected, and following this strategy has gotten MD to the point it’s at today.
