Building out the new MD Labs page (warning: under construction!) on the Marketers Delight site. This will become a full membership hub for all members of the MD Labs, and the place where you will soon get the greatest custom development resources you’ve never seen before. First things first is to start with the foundation of it all: the revamped code snippets library!

Pay attention over the next couple of weeks as I rebuild this site.

All kinds of new MD content and releases will follow sooner than you think.

This year I’m going to the next level. Welcome to the MD Labs.

It’s like tweeting but now you have an edit button. 😀

Let’s play a game this month called #NoCacheNovember. The goal is to find out if your site can survive a whole month without a cache plugin enabled. Cache plugins improve site performance but tend to cover up big mistakes that lie under-the-hood (and make it hard to see new changes!). What will you learn about the health your site by disabling it for a month? Find out during #NoCacheNovember!

Starting the work day by setting up a new site on MD for a small client project then moving to work on a LearnDash integration into another new site later. The best way I’ve found to keep improving the core of MD is to use it on different kinds of websites and plugins, then pass that knowledge back into the product. The secret to any success I’ve found as a small theme shop owner is to keep all of the work I do connected, and following this strategy has gotten MD to the point it’s at today.

Border Box CTA shortcode

Place a beautiful call-to-action anywhere inside your posts with this easy shortcode.

The Stream dropin has come a long way in just 2 days and it is really fun so far. The point of this thing is simplicity and making it fast to post quick updates and share content from all over your site. Here’s how simple the interface is to create what you see now:

Between the admin panel redesign and scripts reorganization, MD4.8.4 weighs slightly less than it did in the previous version of MD. Yes, that even includes the new Stream Dropin! While the rest of the web grows larger and more chaotic with each new feature MD gets leaner and more efficient as it bulks up!

WordPress MD Admin panel redesign

After a couple of years staying the same, I pulled an all nighter to redesign the MD admin panel. The redesign moves the settings panel to the first page of the MD admin, and also eliminated a ton of clutter that the old Dashboard added. Shooting to have this released in MD4.8.4.
