MD Settings Panel Redesign

After a couple of years staying the same, I pulled an all nighter to redesign the MD admin panel. The redesign moves the settings panel to the first page of the MD admin, and also eliminated a ton of clutter that the old Dashboard added. Shooting to have this released in MD4.8.4.

Own Your IP

You can sell just about anything online these days. Everywhere you look, there’s another online marketplace/platform ready to help you turn your idea into another success story.

  • For example, if you sell handmade widgets, there’s Etsy.
  • If you’re using an arbitrage business model, you can use eBay.
  • Freelancers can use sites like Upwork and Fiverr.
  • Books publishers and sellers of all things legal, have Amazon.
  • Course creators can use Kajabi, Teachable, Podia, and/or Udemy.
  • And coaches can turn to sites like Coaching Cloud to connect with clients.

No matter what you’re selling, the data-collecting, customer keeping, over-funded tech giants have you covered.

Glossary Dropin NOW AVAILABLE

Today I am introducing the new Glossary Dropin—a new way to create content-rich keywords and definitions pages on your website. Check it out below!

This is the second time this week I’ve gone into my site’s database to do some “trickery”. The first time was to fix a crazy issue of all the uploaded attachments disappearing at the MD forums (due to an add-on of the forum software) and now again so my eCommerce WP plugin (Easy Digital Downloads) can handle a promotion I am setting up.

Part of the benefit of running a WordPress site is being able to maneuver around the different moving parts. But the software you build upon has to have the options, and tonight I am a bigger believer in MD more than I have ever been. Watch this space!

Twitter update

What a busy week (and summer) it’s been in the MD Labs. Been buried under client work but I am making an effort today to catch up on any messages I’ve missed in the forums in the past week. I am not typically so busy that I get burned out of replying at the forums, so I shot a quick video on Twitter to get back into the groove.

Watch it over here, and give me a follow if you haven’t already! oops, taken down for technical difficulties. Just another reason why text > audio!
