    Hey Ivan, thanks for sharing Alex, yes - this is on our list for this final quarter of the year. We want to speed the site up and make the technical changes so we roll into 2020 in a good shape. It must be 5/6 years of using your products now Alex! Chris.

    There is still plenty of tweaking to be made but the new popups listing is far more inspiring already!

    Spent a few hours today restructuring the MD5.0 theme files to make different components more accessible and MD's internal libraries easier to navigate. Not only is clean file organization necessary for ease of development but it is imperative a theme as far reaching as Marketers Delight is structured properly so all of the aggressive features and enhancements coming in this version are sustainably built. The new root file structure of MD5.0 will look like this: A few notes: The content folder has been renamed templates, and all of MD's template files will now live here. This will make finding all of the files eligible to be overwritten from your child theme easier. Don't worry—if your child theme has the content folder in it MD5.0 will still read those files. The css folder has been moved to the root as well and this will make finding different sections of MD's CSS templates easier too. In a nutshell, the style.css file in the root directory is generated from all of the template files in the css folder, which have been broken down into parts. For example, all of the CSS for buttons, columns, spacers, text formatting, menus, etc. all live in their own file. This makes finding specific blocks of CSS easier, and because these files are dynamic, we can use PHP to output dynamic settings which then print to the static CSS file. I will explain this CSS system more in depth as it is very cool, but I anticipate you will have a lot of fun with these template files! This was done in MD4.9.4, and the scripts.js file is also located in the root directory. It makes sense to be here and goes well with style.css, which holds all of your site's frontend CSS. Apart from some serious internal rearrangements MD5.0's main features will be the Optin capabilities shown off here so far. The Popups feature is getting an overhaul and is becoming far more flexible and getting loads of new templates. Admittedly the first version of the new interface I came up with is pretty uninspiring (screenshot below), but I am happy to have made progress on a way more uplifting and easier to use interface. I am slightly embarrassed to show this screenshot off, but it will be great to compare it to the inspired design which I will tease here shortly. 😛 More updates coming soon! MD5.0 is going to be a massive hit!

    MD4.9.5 is now available! This is a simple update that adds a direct integration with MailerLite, meaning you can now connect your site to this popular email service to embed code-free email forms and popups with Marketers Delight. A big thank you to @MasterHealer and others for requesting this feature and I hope it makes your workflows a lot easier. I wrote a stream post to go along with the update so you can read that here. Otherwise MD4.9.5 is waiting for you in your WP admin right now!

    We create online businesses to serve specific needs through a specific voice that is calculated and stays on brand, though unfortunately at the expense of all the other wacko ideas and deep thoughts that may be valuable elsewhere. That's the value of having a personal blog and if you are lucky to own yourname.com, can create a body of work that lasts a lifetime. Over the past week I've been reworking my own personal site in a way that fulfills any urges I have to write other kinds of content. It's not that I wouldn't share this kind of content anywhere else, there's just no better place to put them! Many of us (myself included) are trying to build the most complicated sites and see how far we can stretch MD and WordPress, so this personal site allowed me to experiment with scaling down to build a website. Let me tell you, MD made creating a pretty cool site super easy. Features I have activated throughout the site: Connected to MailChimp in the MD integrations panel Showing one email form in multiple parts of website from one settings screen Enabled the Stream to create a micro-blog Enabled the Bookshelf to create a reading list page Like and share buttons on blog and stream posts Custom sidebars on Stream page (though disabled right now for future plans) Changed some design settings in MD > Site Design and wrote minimal custom CSS to tone down default MD styles ...and none of this required any plugins! In fact, I only have one plugin enabled: The All in One SEO Framework (premium version). I can't believe a site like this exists and is so fast, and using MD's features was just a joy! Not to gush too much of course, it's rare I can use MD in a relaxed environment without stressing about the flaws or getting lost in where I want to take it next. Do you have your own personal sites you have made with MD? Reply here or post your own thread about it!

    I've been thinking about it myself, but for now my main business (personal training) needs 100% of my attention. Once I get that going like a well-oiled machine I plan on starting up a passion project personal site... just saying what's on my mind regarding topics like fatherhood, music, history, tattoos, fiction, etc. I'll post it here when it's up!

    Making a little progress daily and I've decided that the best way to release MD Optins is to do it one update at a time. The revamped MD Popups is nearing completion and MD4.9.5 ships all kinds of other great improvements which I am excited to share! MD Popups will ship with 6 custom templates and some very powerful custom template/HTML tools that will allow you to build your own if you wanted. Thanks to the new Popups system, I will be able to create a library of custom popup templates you will soon also be able to import into your sites to extend MD's awesome default popup templates. Will show more soon, but here's an idea of one of the templates in action:
