Last week we wrote the Safe Updates announcement and why you should be excited about it. Today I am happy to announce launch of Safe Updates – an automated process that ensures your update of WordPress core, plugins and themes is safer than ever.
Here at ManageWP we are huge advocates of all-in-one. Come to one place and get all of your WordPress website management work done, and now we found a soulmate in social media. Meet Social Web Suite, our friends from home, who have created a place that will meet all of your social media needs. I sat down with the co-founders Tina Todorovic and Dejan Markovic, who are passionate WordPressers, and talked about their love for the WordPress Community, their work-life balance in Toronto, and of course their brand new product Social Web Suite.
If there’s one thing I really hate doing, it’s updates. It’s important to keep everything up to date, but it also eats up a lot of your time: if the update itself does not fail, you still need to make sure the website did not break in so many wonderful ways. So for the past several months we’ve been working on a better way to update WordPress websites. We call it Safe Updates.
It was pretty hectic during the first quarter here at ManageWP. The number of active customers has almost doubled. The Customer Happiness team has 4 new members, we have organized 3 WordPress Academies, have been on more than 10 WordPress meetups and visited WordCamp London. Our engineering team has resolved 243 issues you reported, ManageWP dashboard has been optimized, websites sync and load time are reduced by more than 60%, new features for WordPress Multisite networks (Backup,Clone, and Restore) are released. All of this would not have been possible without your feedback and support.
Creating a monthly maintenance plan for your WordPress sites requires organizing the tasks you perform on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis into a few main categories; Backups, WordPress Core Updates, Plugin Maintenance ,Theme Maintenance, Overall Site Health and Content Health.
Free Client Report localization is now possible in ManageWP. From now on you are able to choose what language you want your Client Report to be generated in. For now we have 11 exciting languages available, but this is just the beginning. You can expect more languages to come.

But as much as we all wish it weren’t otherwise, the journey is not over once you find someone interested in paying you for your services. Not by a longshot.
WordCamp London this year has brought together the GoDaddy family from all around the world, given us an opportunity to meet the team from Heart Internet, and as always brought us closer to our users. Thank you first and foremost to all of the organizers and volunteers who made this event special, and to my team who always make these events the best part of my job. Here is how we got along.
This week was a special one for the QA team, automated browser tests were released earlier this week after months of working on them. I want to give a special thanks to our DevOps team, Miljenko, Darko and Lazar for all their help with setting up our testing environment!
