Upgrading an old site and found it still running a copy of MD4.7—one of the most difficult yet most important updates ever released.
Inside the Labs
THE STREAM is what's new in Marketers Delight.
From time to time I hear a comment about how the main color scheme they see on the MD site (red and green) reminds them of Christmas. The strange thing to me is they say it like it’s a bad thing—I mean, who doesn’t want to feel like they’re going Christmas shopping for their new WordPress Theme?
I also get “color psychology experts” explaining to me how harmful red is for conversion rates, and then the inevitable suggestion of using blue or green instead. I wonder what the effect of blending in with 99% of other Internet brands will have on my conversion rates?
Good news everybody! Marketers Delight 4.9.6 is now waiting for you in your WordPress admin panel and its got some new features that will really help your social media strategy out. Check out the changelog below or go read the full announcement post to see the juicy new details!
Just a heads up, I published an updated and highly expanded version of the MD Style Guide. Use this cheatsheet to find a list of useful helper classes to make writing custom HTML elements easier and drastically cut down the amount of custom CSS you need to write:
The summer is truly a unique time on Earth and I hope you too are making the most of this fleeting period. To transition to the next stage, I am happy to announce the all-new MailerLite integration is MD4.9.5—which you can go download right now.
The new direct MailerLite integration in Marketers Delight 4.9.5 allows you to connect your email forms data from MailerLite directly into your WordPress site. By taking advantage of MD’s email forms, popups, and other optin features you can finally embed lists from MailerLite without any code.
A special thanks to MD fan favorite MasterHealer for his persistence to get this feature released, and for many other contributions by simply speaking up.
MD4.9.5 is waiting for you in your dashboards—go update now!
I just released MD22.214.171.124 (based on this forum thread) that adds a couple of enhancements to the MD Bookshelf. To see the bookshelf page in action go check out my personal blog and read the forum thread I linked to for instructions on how to use the new bookshelf enhancements in MD126.96.36.199.
The Bookshelf is my second favorite feature in MD (the Stream is just too much fun!) and I have some great updates I plan to build sometime soon. I won’t reveal much now, but the ideas are burning a hole in my mind and may turn the Bookshelf into my favorite feature once released!
I hope you have all enjoyed these fleeting summer months. I am entering a new era in my own life after these hot months of personal growth, adventures, death, and collaboration. I realize the weight of that sentence and I only hope you are reminded of what this summer has been like for you.
