What’s the Best WordPress Membership Theme?

membership themeYou know I got asked this question so much…

I just decided to create it.

I’d been wanting to work with the Foundation Zurb framework and using an excellent Foundation starter theme, WP Membership Theme was born.

It’s really a great all around theme for marketers.

You can use it to create:

  • Funnels
  • Landing Pages
  • Download Pages
  • Member Areas
  • Video Salespages
  • Blogs (of course)
  • And More.

There’s a slew of custom page templates.

Best of all it’s fully responsive, customizable and has a great minimal look to it.

It includes special member and visitor shortcodes, as well as two bonus plugins:

  • WPM-Register – Create login, registration & password reminder pages. Plus a “hide page” function.
  • Instant Support Pro – My helpdesk, knowledgebase and ticket system for WordPress.

The theme and all the plugins are currently available in my WPUnite bundle, but only for a limited time.

5 Quick Time Savers for 2015

clock1.  Do you get tired of sorting through your Gmail each day?  Enable Auto Advance in Google Labs.   It will let you triage your mail each day significantly faster by auto advancing and opening the next email automatically.  It saves me at least an hour a week.   Settings > Labs > Auto Advance

2.  Do you send the same emails over and over again?  Check out Canned Responses in Google Labs as well.

3.  Having a hard time staying focused on tasks and want a simple task manager and todo app?  Try Asana.com.  It’s completely free and I use it as a CRM, To Do list, Task Manager for outsourcers and reminder service.

4.  Tired of logging into your WordPress blog each day?  Install the IP Based Login plugin (just recognize anyone on your computer could login as well).  But basically, once you add your IP, you won’t have to login again.

5.  I don’t know about  you but I use Notepad 10-20 times a day, but when I need a powerful editor I use  NotePad ++. Once you realize how cool this free software is you’ll use it all the time.  I use it for html editing, sorting big files, mass text replace etc.   Say  you have a 100,000 line file and you want to remove every line that has XYZ in it.  And then sort in alphabetical order.   You can do that kind of stuff with Notepad ++

How to pin Asana or any web app to your taskbar

asanaAs the New Year approaches many people are getting organized and planning the upcoming year.

It’s safe to say that “Increasing Productivity” is right up there with losing weight for New Year’s resolutions.

I spent Christmas day organizing my office, email, computer files and most importantly planning out my tasks and goals for the new year.

Over the last year I’ve been using Asana as my task manager, project manager and as a place to do idea dumps whenever they hit me.  Which is often.

I’ve always had Asana pinned to my Chrome bookmark bar, but I thought it would be even better if I could make it a desktop app that’s run from my taskbar.  Or better yet, have it open in a resized window with no toolbars added.

I searched for this but didn’t find a tool for it.

However, Chrome has a shortcut function which is the next best thing.

So if you’ve been looking for a way to add a webapp like Asana to your taskbar so it will open in one click,  this is all you need to do. Continue reading…
