I bought a special 100 site lifetime deal for a WordPress central management dashboard product for $47 recently. It was a “special” flash sale through an affiliate – normally they charge $27/month for that (or $17 a month for 50 sites and $47 a month for unlimited sites – I got that wrong in the video).
I spent a good deal of time adding my sites into the dashboard to begin with so I was pretty dismayed when I logged in a couple of days later to find it no longer worked. I added a ticket and they fixed something and it worked again…and the plug-in got updated.
A few days later another bug stopped it from working properly…another ticket…another plug-in update and it started working again. I started to feel like a beta tester.
Then…for no reason whatsoever…a pop up started firing all the time. You will have to watch the video to see what that was all about and why it tipped me over the edge and take the unusual step (for me) to request a refund.
But…I did find something better and for free..So I will also share that with you in the video….Like this? Share it with others...
very interesting – thanks for the heads up!
Nice one Barry. Thanks for that info on infinitewp. Great time saver.. Awesome… Have a good Easter break..
For that option to install by entering your cPanel info how would it work with two different hosting services? Would you need two different dashboards for Infinatewp, or would you be able to enter one cPanel’s info, set that up and then enter the other cPanel info?
You only need it on one hosting. You then control the blogs across all your Cpanels from that one installation.
Good to know. Thanks Barry.
Only 1 word really fits here…Thanks!
Thank you Barry! I’ve been looking for a program like this.
Been thinking about this kind of tool for the future as I build out my online biz…
I’m creating 2 sites right now & will test this on one of them with my host a/c as it’s exactly what I was hoping to be able to achieve with a plugin. Thanks!!
But for the 2nd site, I’m testing a platform called Flywheel (dedicated WP platform with loads of security taken care of). They might install it for me, if I ask them to & they can see no security issues for them, but generally Flywheel has pretty tight rules for users in order to maintain the security integrity of the platform so maybe not 🙁
The reason I’m using 2 different hosting co’s is to compare my user experience & quality & speed of support. Flywheel support is fast, friendly & always tech smart. Whereas my other host seems to have support staff who are all quite different in their level of knowledge & abilities (& some obvious language challenges I’ve also noticed just by how well they understand the issue even though it’s described quite plainly).
I’ve subscribed to your blog today Gary (but I got here via an email re this post so I either must have done so already & forgotten, or I got added to your list another way!
Awesome tip, Barry. Thanks 🙂 What’s the name of the plugin you bought? Just curious. No, not just curious, actually. I want to make sure I don’t promote anything from that company.
I’m going to share this tip with my list. I think they’ll like it just as much as I do.
I will PM you on Facebook, Britt
Great info, thanks again
Barry, I’m sorry to hear of your initial problems. I’ve had several experiences with software that was launched too early. Some marketers have a set launch date and since they’ve told all their JVs and hyped up that date, they will often launch no matter what. If the software isn’t quite up to snuff or has a couple of bugs, that doesn’t seem to stop them.
I’m also like you when it comes to asking for refunds. If I find it necessary to ask for a refund, then the product has to be REALLY bad! I’m usually pretty understanding and willing to work with the vendor id their support is good, but once in a while you’ll come to the realization that it’s just not worth the money.
Thanks so much for letting me know about InfiniteWP. Sounds exactly like what I’ve been looking for myself. Thanks for the great post!
