Today we get to hear me interview James from Managewp.com which is a great website for anyone who is managing multiple WordPress installations. This does more than just provide access to ALL of your WordPress installtions, it can run security checks (to make sure you have no malware), it can schedule backups (to Amazon S3, Dropbox, etc), and allow you to clone a website.
I can see developers who love have a standard theme, plugins, etc that they recommend to their clients loving the cloning feature. Now not only can you get wordpress the way you want it on a clients site, you can manage their site from ONE dhasboard.
It also has great analytics (it told me what I was doing right, and pointed out what I was doing horrible at). It's completely secure, and James said its about 80 cents per website per month. When you sign up for your free account you will see instantly the time savings that a tool like Managewp can provide. In this episode I capture my first impressions.
The only thing you need to do is to install a plugin (free) wallk managewp worker on your site and then login and add that site to your dashboard (which takes next to no time). Once you've added that website to your dashboard you can control it (as in add a post, update plugins, etc).
Just when you think it can't get any cooler, how would like to manage all of your websites from your iPhone or iPad? There's a FREE app for that. Nice.
It was super easy to use, and they have a video on their welcome screen when you login to your dhasboard that walks you through adding your sites (you can even add them in bulk). For those who like to read there is also a pdf manual.
If you're interested in saving money you can sign up for months in advance but there are no contracts. You can upgrade/downgrade anytime (or cancel). Pretty cool stuff.
