This weeks seemed to be a slower week except for some upgrades from EDD and iThemes’ Exchange – probably because our US friends (us included!) are preparing for Thanksgiving. Eating marathons do take extreme mental preparation :).
- Easy Digital Downloads had a big week in terms of releases. The Frontend Submissions add-on was updated with some cool new features, including the addition of forms. They also released an Android version of their sales/earnings tracker app to complement the iOS app they already offer.
- iThemes also had some major announcements this week, including a sale on their toolkit, which includes all of their products, as well as Exchange add-ons for free offers and custom URLs. They also released new integrations for email marketing platforms, including MadMimi, AWeber, Campaign Monitor, and Get Response.
- We talked about hosting last week, and have some things for you from WP Mayor you may be interested: Reviewing SiteGround Hosting and some special offers from WP Engine. They also posted an article on FormGet, which is a Contact Form-builder plugin
- Our next “theme” for our articles is on memberships and subscription models, so this article from Entrepreneur on the Subscription Service model should be relevant.
- Looking to improve comments on your site? Tom Ewer wrote an article on WP Explorer about 5 plugins that improve the comments system.
- Last we have a huge tutorial for you we found via ManageWP.org: How to build an eCommerce site.
As always, please let us know of future announcements or if we missed something this week. Enjoy your weekends, and Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends!
