So as you might have noticed, we are now running a small, text-based ad on all pages of the site. It’s visible at the top of every page.
A lot of you might’ve been able to guess from just the copy (before this thread title gave it away), ManageWP is our exclusive sponsor.
Just a little background on ManageWP in case you haven’t heard of it:
It was founded by @vprelovac back in 2010 as a centralized WordPress dashboard service, ideal for agencies, freelancers, and the like looking to better automate normally mundane tasks like updating, backups, security scans, among many other features.
It is definitely a business I admire due to their sane pricing that gets cheaper per site you add to the platform, and due to the fact that literally any WordPress site owner can find benefit in it. And most importantly, it’s definitely a brand I trust to be associated with WP Chat as a sponsor.
As a follow up to my “Pro” accounts thread, we probably won’t be doing Pro accounts any time soon. Mostly due to the fact that it would just be too expensive to custom code the feature for Discourse for it to be worth it, even though some did express interest in it. I might try to figure out some alternative, easier-to-manage benefits for those interested in donating.
Thanks for being WP chatters. And thanks to Vladimir and the rest of the ManageWP team for being our exclusive sponsor! Pretty excited about this.
