WP Mastery Weekly #16

Now, the WP Agency Summit is officially over... what a ride this has been. I am yet to do a full recap of the event on my blog, but one thing is for certain: the conference was a LOT better received than I hoped for.

I'm thankful for all the positive feedback from across the globe and am excited to run more summits in 2020.

This newsletter might change in 2020 as well, but I will still send you the best WP-related contents I can find every week 🙂

Interesting little snippet from Tom McFarlin to deactivate all plugins using MySQL. I can certainly see this coming in handy when inheriting a new website, e.g. for a total redesign.

P.S. Here are some tools I use daily, they'll benefit your business too.

Continuous Integration (CI). I use CI at WP Mastery to run all sorts of automated tasks in my coding workflow. For example, my code gets deployed to a server automatically whenever I push a new revision to GitHub. Click here to learn about 5 reasons WP developers need CI (imho).

Cloudways (hosting). I host all my own and our client sites with them. We have 7 servers and roughly 50 sites on Cloudways and are in love with them since 2014. Their servers make our sites blazingly fast, they give us plenty of flexibility for development workflows (e.g. Github auto-deploy embedded), and the servers run stable. What more could you ask for?

Page Builder Cloud. Looking to transfer your Elementor layouts from the staging site to the live website easily? Page Builder Cloud is my tool of choice. It works with Elementor, BB, Divi, Fusion Builder, Oxygen and so many more. And it's just $99/year. Even if it saves you just 1h, it pays for itself.

WP Buffs White-Label Maintenance. Want to sell WP maintenance plans but don't have a team to handle the actual work? The WP Buffs offer white-label maintenance plans at exceptional quality. Schedule a free call with them now to get to know them and to partner up. I keep referring my friends to them.
