    Memberful's a pretty good option if you want something simple. And moving away from 1:1 coaching/consulting towards something scalable and/or passive is ideal. For me, the idea is to focus on one small aspect of my consulting. I sold my service as "Monetization Strategies", however, more often than not, I found myself encouraging my client and trying to reassure them that moving forward and taking action is the only way to find out if their idea will actually work. We can do a ton of research, and we can validate our ideas, products, and service offerings, but at the end of the day - we have to just do something if we want to find out if the thing we're working on can become a real business. Those sort of conversations led me to start publishing content, behind a subscription. Anyway, good luck with your transition Ivan.

    Wasting no time after Marketers Delight 4.9.4, I am swiftly moving to the next initiative: MD Optins. I have been dreaming this feature out single the release of MD4.9, which added the Integrations panel, and I am so excited to finally get a move on this project! MD Optins will merge the old email forms and popups features as well as introduce enhanced email form functionality (checkbox consents, other form fields), a few new email service integrations, and a special new kind of optin form that will really make a difference in your conversion rates. Just about every update since MD4.9.4 has been preparing us for this stage, and I expect to move very fast on the completion of this feature thanks to those updates. My head is still two updates ahead, but MD Optins will add features to your website that will really make your email marketing far more effective. Here's an early look at the reorganized admin panel. While much simpler, you will be able to perform amazing website actions from here. Understand that as MD gets simpler, your capabilities expand astronomically. I will keep you updated here and am open to any feedback and questions throughout the development process.

    A huge part of the new MD Optins system is to make sure creating popups is fast and easy. The Popups Designer is getting a total UI overhaul and a whole new rethinking of the popups creation process. Instead of trying to build popup designs piece by piece you will be able to toggle through premade templates that all interact with the same text, image, and optin settings for a controlled and easier popup creation process. Even creating custom popup templates from the Designer will be made easier, and adding your own custom popup templates from your child theme will be as easy as using a filter and writing HTML and CSS (keeping things simple!). I will be releasing MD Optins with a few nicely designed popup templates and then open the doors to showing you how to create some too, and plenty more will be added later down the road too. You can see an early preview below for an idea of how the new Popups Designer will work. This doesn't show much, but hopefully gives you an idea of its flexibility in comparison to the current way: Screen Recording 2019-06-17 at 01.16 PM.mov

    I have been preparing to unveil a new content strategy and released the revamped MD blog design tonight. It's still a work in progress but has greatly consolidated 100+ articles into a clearer way for you to navigate. Go check it out, you might find something new as the new template now holds a lot of previously unlisted tutorials.

    It's been few days since I low-key released the massive new MD 4.8 design system. I decided to slowly roll this update out so I could work with the few brave souls of this forum who have been watching this update unfold. Thanks to you guys taking action, I've been able to monitor how existing site's interact with MD4.8 and feel confident to make the grand announcement to everybody else. Even better, you were gracious enough to share the bugs you found in the update and that's what this new version is all about—cleaning up some loose ends. A special thanks to @camerondare, @V3King, and @Richard Brown for reporting bugs and helping me make the first maintenance release of the MD4.8 series possible! MD4.8.1 is waiting for you in your dashboard and has the following changes: Adjusts content box drop shadow on Teasers layout, adds drop shadow to pagination and archives title if enabled Fixes spacing issues on mobile and desktop with the aligncenter class Fixes links color in Content Spotlight widget Fixes save error on Email Widget Adds bottom margin to the archives title Corrects display bug with Pro Share floating icons Based on how much has changed, I'm glad to report that these bugs are fairly minor and no serious issues have come up with the MD4.8 upgrade. Thanks for all of your support, and be sure to watch the redesigned MD blog for new tutorials and content!

    Another idea for the builder: Additional options for the Main menu, in order to be able to build detailed submenus like Mickey Visit: ...as well as just simply edit how long a submenu line can be, in order not to have submenu items in two rows, like on my site:

    note: This is probably not going to be grammatically correct, but I'm just gonna freestyle this one. . . . . . . Back in January I began the long process of transitioning my business from a (fairly successful) Consulting biz to an Online learning co. The reason is pretty simple - I no longer want to trade time for money. While I enjoy working 1:1 with my clients, I'm a lot more interested in working smarter, and not harder, so.... Turning my website from a simple (static) contact portal to a legitimate (dynamic) website capable of presenting text, audio, and video content to my subscribers has been painless. I wanted my site to be lightweight, fast, flexible, and beautiful. Which is why I had-to go with MD. Without going into ever single detail (I'll save that for another time), I've successfully re-launched Raylosophy dot com as a content hub supported by subscriptions. 350+ paying subscribers later, and I'm still optimizing my site. I want to offer a distraction free...content focused...mobile & web optimized experience, and thanks to Alexs' laser focused pursuit of perfection - Marketers Delight is making my job a lot easier. Instead of worrying about which plugins I need to install, activate, deactivate, etc...I can spend that time testing the built-in features. Right now, I six plugins installed, and only 5 of them active. 1. Classic Editor - because I really hate Gutenberg. 2. Google XML Sitemaps - because its the smart thing to do. 3. Memberful - because I need to manage my membership site, and Memberful seems like the best option. 4. Really Simple SSL - because I want to support these developers, and every site needs to be secure. 5. Stripe Payments (inactive) - because I might not KEEP Memberful. Instead I might want to simply deliver my daily content via email, and keep each "newsletter issue" archived on the site - in which case I won't need something like memberful. I might go with using a PayPal link and a simple login page for anyone looking to access the site. The point is, I love plugins, but I love my supporters more - and providing the best possible experience is what I want to do. 6. Lastly, I'm using WP Offload Media Lite - because I (again) want to keep my site lightweight, and storing images and downloadable content on Amazon (s3) is the way to go. Okay, so this post is a little longer than I wanted it to be, but I've gotten so much value from the MD Forums that it's only right that I give a little back. Alex gives us so much with MD that I always have to remind myself that Kolakube/MD is essentially, a one-man-shop. Think about that for a sec. He's running software company by himself, and has a critical hand in the businesses of thousands of entrepreneurs. I'm grateful for MD, and my success is MD's success. Again - I apologize for spelling and grammatical errors, but I just wanted to get this out there. Ray.

    Thank you for sharing all of this Ray, and I have to say that this new iteration of Raylosophy is the best yet and I am really enjoying my membership. In fact Raylosophy is one of the best uses of MD I have seen, even in its simple form, because regular content is actually added to it. Forget any extra flare, you made it clear immediately what you have to offer and setup a simple payment process to turn it into a business. To see MD's cut and dry features being used to support a site with 350+ paying subscribers is the highest compliment you can pay me and I thank you for showing the way for the rest of us. This is surprising to hear! It can drive me nuts sometimes but since MD's enhancements I can barely see myself writing in Classic editor again. I install Classic editor plugin on some sites because Gutenberg is totally overqualified in some cases. I've talked about this in other posts but I think this editor can be a great longform content builder. My concern comes in as they try to shove every aspect of your website into the editor, which I believe is the wrong approach and why I am responding with the creation of the MD Builder. I will certainly be doing what I can to make Gutenberg work as that longform content builder in MD, but am not motivated to go over the top with it. I'd be curious to hear more about what your gripes with it are. I have never seen this plugin before but I love its simplicity. This plugin shouldn't be necessary but I have nothing against your reason to support the developers. I very much appreciate to hear this and love the advantages of a one man shop in my own personal life. However I am realizing that to bring MD's potential to its highest (which is my biggest care in life) and for every one of you around here to get the most out of the software for your businesses, staying as a one man team is not for the best. I love the potential for the community to grow and help each other here, so I think this will come together organically. Until then, I am having so much fun and can't wait to show you all what's coming next.

    +2 for what Ivan said. Also: Reusable template / code blocks + accompanying CSS that can be re-deployed to other pages (maybe a library created from some of your custom designed MD sites of those willing to share?) More hooks to choose from when using page blocks (e.g. Instead of having to create the page blocks in order they would be shown, I'd like to be able to reorder them AND choose where each shows up on the page) Pre-built templates that don't impact page speed a lot May add more as I use PB's more

    To close off this thread, I am happy to announce the release of the Marketers Delight and WooCommerce integration in MD4.9.4.

    In preparation for MD4.9.4 I have created a Troubleshooting page you can use to help work through any problems you might run into during upgrades and other use cases. It is only a start, but something that I hope gives you more confidence to work through any issues that might be slowing you down. Feedback appreciated!

    Woo expert... Oh boy, I can't handle the pressure ;-) I really like the features! Cart icon and minimal checkout fields are things i need to implement on multiple websites. This will make it a lot easier. :-) With MD you can also build good salespages, but i don't like the default WooCommerce checkoutpage. That's the reason i'm using different checkout pages for each digital product (see uploaded file). Maybe this would benefit more MD customers if you could integrate this functionality into MD. :-) Since you can already connect MD to an email service provider, it would be great if you can collect email addresses when someone buys a product from your store. To segment the customers, sending tags to the email service provider with the product name would be helpfull as well.
