Announcing MainWP and WP Activity Log Integration

Today we are happy to announce that we have been working together with the WP Activity Log team to develop a WordPress activity log solution for MainWP. In the tradition we started back in 2015 with site Backups we continue to defer to the experts when it comes to complicated problems. What makes this extra exciting for us, is that is one of our first true third party integrations where we have worked hand in hand with the developers and the fact that the WP Activity Log plugin is the most comprehensive WordPress activity log plugin solution, both in terms of

ManageWP blocked by Bluehost and HostGator why MainWP continues to work…

Earlier today ManageWP announced on their Facebook page that “ It appears that ManageWP has been blocked by EIG (Bluehost & HostGator confirmed so far), resulting in EIG hosted websites showing up as disconnected.” At this point it looks as if these EIG hosted companies have blocked ManageWP’s IP address breaking the connection to their Dashboard. As a company we at MainWP hope this was just an accidental block and not something done intentionally by EIG to block GoDaddy (ManageWP’s Owner’s) access to their servers. Although, intentional blocking is something I have suspected we “could” see since the purchase of

MainWP Dashboard Hosting with PeoplesHost

Today I’m proud to announce our partnership with PeoplesHost, the first host to offer automatic MainWP Dashboard setup!   Notice: Neither myself nor MainWP receives any compensation for MainWP Dashboard sign-ups with Peopleshost. Who is PeoplesHost? I thought it was best for Gregg to give you a little background on the company in his owns words with a brief interview. I’m not able to find much about your business except for an older Reddit post that says you are “EIG refugees” can you elaborate more on that? PeoplesHost started back in October of 2015. Both Adam and I have been

We’ve switched to AffiliateWP and reopened the Affiliate Program!

After years of running our affiliate program through iDevAffiliate it has come time to make a change and that change is to AffiliateWP! Why the change? We enjoyed working with iDevAffiliate and I don’t really have anything negative to say about the program except for it uses ionCube for encrypting it’s code.  As open-source house this has bothered me but not enough to make a change since I knew the iDevaffiliate program and it just worked. However, after having to wait for ionCube loaders (these allow the servers to read the encrypted code) to be updated for PHP 7.0 so I could

MainWP Client Reports 2.0

Last few months, MainWP Development team has been working on improvements for the MainWP Client Reports extension. The majority of implemented improvements have been based on feedback that we have been collecting from our user. Since the new version contains a lot of updates, we recommend creating a database backup of your MainWP Dashboard before updating the MainWP Client Reports extension. What’s New Merged Single Site Reports and Global Reports No more difference between reports generated for a single site and multiple sites. The unified New Report page will allow you to select one or multiple sites for your reports. If you

MainWP is Three Today!

Three years ago today, MainWP was released on WordPress.org becoming the first fully open source WordPress Management plugin available. I believe even after three years my original quote from our first press release stands as true now as it did then: “When we started this we felt there had to be a more economical way for users to be able to control their network of sites then what was currently available. We went down a few different roads in the beginning but everyone at MainWP is very happy that we settled on the open source route. Open Source has allowed

Join the MainWP User Facebook Group

Today I am happy to announce the all new MainWP Users Facebook group. A place for MainWP users to gather and discuss MainWP, WordPress and running multiple WordPress sites. About the Group The MainWP Users group is independent of MainWP and is being administered by Ivica Delic, a longtime MainWP user and active Facebook groups admin. His admin duties include groups such as the WordPress Speed Up Group as well as many others listed in Quality WordPress Groups and I believe he is the correct person to get this group off the ground. The MainWP Users group is a closed

Introducing MainWP Roadmaps

I’m excited to introduce you to our new MainWP roadmaps! We created the roadmaps in an attempt to be open with our vision of MainWP and allow you to comment and add your own ideas of what we should be working on. By using Trello, these new roadmaps will provide a better visual representation of what is happening with the MainWP team and what is being worked on. However, we won’t be adding specific bugs and minor features fixes to the Roadmaps. What about old feature requests? Anyone who has added a feature request to the old feature request system

What if MainWP was sold?

What if MainWP was sold?

With the announcement on Friday of the sale of ManageWP to GoDaddy (and confirmed today) I have received a fair amount of questions about it and I have also seen MainWP brought up in numerous comments, so I thought it was best to take a moment and address the acquisition and how a sale of a SaaS (Software as a Service) management solution such as ManageWP differs from the sale of a open source stand alone solution such as MainWP. Let me start by saying; I am proud of what Vladimir Prelovac has accomplished with ManageWP and for paving the way for plugins

MainWP Child 3.1.3 Update

Version 3.1.3 introduced one significant change in MainWP Child plugin. The first thing that you will notice is that the MainWP Child plugin is no longer listed in the WP Admin menu as a top level menu item. Starting with this version, MainWP Child plugin can be found in the WP > Settings menu. The reason for moving the MainWP menu to the WordPress Settings is that we wanted to keep client child sites cleaner and make the plugin settings harder to find for all users that are not in charge of the parent dashboard. This update does not affect
