  1. Definitely, I think I will keep it global for now, and then when the inevitable day comes for this feature request it will be easy to bake in. That's similar to how I have to approve forum accounts here, unfortunately there isn't a bridge between my eCommerce and this forum software. If that plugin exists though, why not enable it to save you the effort of manually adding them?
  2. Glad to hear these features look useful! I like your suggestions here - which plugin do you use to make multiple checkout pages? The current drawback of the "Minimal" settings it that they will be applied to all checkout pages rather than being able to enable it on a page by page basis. I have a tagging feature coming in the revamped version of MD Optins I am working on, and is it currently possible to add that email signup checkbox to WooCommerce? Great looking checkout page by the way - does that use MD Custom sidebars?
  3. Here's an early screenshot of the settings screen for the WooCommerce integration coming into MD4.9.4. Not looking to go overboard as I am only an intermediate with WooCommerce, but this should give us just enough styling for a basic store and a couple of "cherry on top" kind of features. I believe @Maikel is the Woo expert around here, so maybe he has some thoughts.
  4. I built a sweet integration for WooCommerce into an MD client project, and I am working now to bundle it smoothly into the next Marketers Delight update. As a passing thought, how many of you use WooCommerce and would think a style integration with some bonus features would benefit you?
  5. Marketers Delight 4.9.3 has officially been released and comes with 3 new content blocks that the content marketers among you will just love! Check out some demos and the full introduction post and go update your sites now! https://marketersdelight.net/gutenberg-content-marketing-blocks/

    New blog design

    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.

    Font Icons Library

    Check out the updated Font Icons Library page for an easy reference list to use the font icons built into MD. Right now many of the icons you see on that page are coming in the impending MD4.9.3 release (don't worry, there are things much bigger than font icons coming in that release) but I wanted to show you this page now to give you an idea of what to expect. I wrote a stream post with some thoughts about why MD has this feature, along with some other musings.
  8. What kind of course site did you build with LearnDash? I am highly interested in releasing a child theme integration and have a release planned in the near future to add Woocommerce styling into MD by default.
  9. Just to let you guys know, some new Blocks and enhancements coming to the Gutenberg editor in MD4.9.3. Check out the sneak peak at the MD Stream! https://marketersdelight.net/stream/78611/
  10. Have any of you out there built a membership or course on WordPress? I am interested in releasing course related products this year, one plugin I am 90% finished developing, and also bridge existing membership plugins to MD. From talking to many of you through email, I hear that you like MemberPress, LearnDash, and WishList. I'm asking because I want to know which plugins are the most popular so I can focus on creating the best course related integrations for your MD sites. Personally I've built a couple of course sites for clients and they were both on LearnDash so I am quite skewed towards that plugin at the moment. Share your thoughts here!
  11. Of course I'm talking about "Gutenberg," but I think since it's merged into WordPress that we're supposed to call it the "Blocks Editor" by now. Anyways, the newly released Marketers Delight 4.9 does some pretty cool stuff with the Editor that really improves things. The biggest thing is that MD will now style your editor to match your custom web fonts and typography so at the bare minimum (which is a huge deal), your writing will look exactly as it will appear on your website. On top of fonts MD adds its first Block which is a very nice Email Form you can design on the fly. I have great ideas for other Blocks I'll be adding, all with the intent to make writing longform sales pages easy. That is where I really see the benefits of the Blocks Editor - for longform content writing, which is different than "page building" if you want to be on more precise terms. It still has some pretty annoying quirks, but we can only hope those get worked out sooner rather than later. Have you gotten used to "Gutenberg" yet? Has MD4.9 made writing in it easier? I'm intrigued to hear your experiences!
  12. Note: If you are not yet an MD customer and you have a question, please register an account to post here. I'm opening the Presales forums for MD customers and curious first time buyer to ask any questions before making a purchase on the website. Whether you're buying something or not - any questions you want to know about MD (that aren't tech support related, do that here), I will be thrilled to answer them! Now, to show your honest feedback about your experience using Marketers Delight and the forum support services here, please take a moment to vote your rating in this thread. Only verified MD customers can vote, so please vote honestly with your full picture in mind - (your username will not be posted publicly).
  13. MD4.8.5 is out and The bookshelf is now part of the MD core! I've already released a maintenance release for it as well as I had a burst of motivation tonight to build a book template into The Stream! Check out the latest stream post here to see a book I shared: https://marketersdelight.net/stream/ As always you can read the changelog here: https://marketersdelight.net/changelog/
  14. Hey guys, as part of a new vision I am implementing for MD, I've decided to merge The Bookshelf dropin into the next release in version 4.8.5. The reason for this is to make enabling this feature as easy as clicking a button rather than installing it as a dropin. I know many people who use MD are readers so this will be of use to many of you. It can be a way to share the books you love, create galleries of your own writings, and up your affiliate sales by linking to affiliate links. The larger goal I have by including the Bookshelf into MD is to connect it to other kinds of content you create on your site, like the Stream, and give you a way to display rich book data across your site with ease. I'll explain more shortly, but the Bookshelf is almost ready to go. You can see the thread I posted here on the night I started working on it and see the progress so far: https://marketersdelight.net/stream/77818/ Have any suggestions in the meantime? Let me know here.

    New MD Tutorials

    I'll use this thread to post the latest MD tutorials that make it to the MD blog. As MD4.8 introduced a lot of new stuff, I'll be doing a series on the blog that shows you what you can accomplish with these great new controls! Starting off with a closer look at Google Fonts integration: https://marketersdelight.net/design-google-fonts/
  20. 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!

    MD4.8 Sneak Peaks

    Thanks, Callum! And that sounds like a great idea. I'm almost done the announcement post and it really does a great job outlining the new features and the intention behind them which I think you will definitely appreciate.

    MD4.8 Sneak Peaks

    Hey, great question. I'm working on the announcement post now and testing the last details and bug fixes I can find. That being said, I'm shooting for a soft launch this weekend (around Friday) to release to everybody who wants to update, then make a formal announcement to the email list on Monday. Very pleased to hear you will be using MD for a new site, this update will absolutely be a big boost to your efforts.
