New to MainWP? Here are some third-party resources

Some of the best resources for MainWP are created by third-party resources. 


Well, that is because these experts have fallen in love with the MainWP product and are showing it to their community.

Today, we are going to take a look at a few third-party resources that will help you up to speed with MainWP.

Ready? Let’s learn more.


MainWP Users Facebook Group

Undoubtedly, one of the first things you will do is join the MainWP Users Facebook Group. It is the “unofficial” Facebook group for MainWP.

MainWP does not have a Facebook group, but they do have a self-hosted forum. Entrepreneur Ivica Delic runs this Facebook Group.

While MainWP does have a good and fast-responding support channel, sometimes you can get quicker responses in the MainWP Facebook Users group. That is, of course, if people in the group have already experienced your issue.

The group has a few heavy users who are more than willing to give a helping hand. One of the members, Ua Vandercar, even created a plugin to help users customize their MainWP reports.

Additionally, members of the MainWP team are in the group. New MainWP articles are often posted in the Facebook group before anywhere else. That means, often when an article is posted in the group, it is “hot off the press.”

You can learn more about the man who is the founder of the group, Ivica Delic, in an article I did a few years ago.

Videos Tutorials

Sometimes we learn better by looking over somebody’s shoulder. That’s the great thing about video tutorials.

You get a chance to see how something works before your eyes.

It’s so much better when you see it with a skilled practitioner walking you through the process.

We will take a look at a handful of third-party videos from skilled practitioners who will show you how it all works.
