WP Curator now available

Our latest plugin and ebook is called WP Curator, which allows super admins to hand select specific posts in a network and promote them to the main site. If you’ve ever been to the front page of WordPress.com, you’ll see they have hand selected posts from across their network.

This is one way it can be done – with the WP Curator plugin. Once activated, it shows a “promote post” link only to super admins. This way, when surfing your network for excellent content, you can reward your users by highlighting them on the very front of your site. How you format those posts when they get there is totally up to you. You can also use any theme you like – no need to switch to a new theme. We’ve even included some code snippets to use with the Genesis Theme Framework and its child themes.

In fact, WordPress.com has been so successful, they recently launched three separate site showcases featuring posts in three different categories: FoodPress, EcoPressed, and PopPressed.

This plugin requires WordPress 3.1+ with multisite enabled. Get it here, and have fun!

New ebook for SharDB

Our next ebook has just been released and is the SharDB Installation Guide. SharDB is a free plugin that lets you scale your single database for multisite into 16, 256 or 4096 databases.

This is a little different than our other ebooks, as support will be given in the wordpress.org forums, the price point is lower, and the plugin will need to be downloaded separately from the WordPress plugin repository.

Updated for 3.1

WordPress 3.1 was released yesterday, and both our domain mapping plugin and the replicator have been updated and released. Find them in the support area for paid customers.

Also, for customers we have an affiliate program. While logged in to the site, you’ll see an affiliates page with more information.

Thank you so much for your continued support. :)

Price increase on January 15h

Here at wpebooks we will be increasing prices slightly effective on Saturday January 15th, 2011. This is in order to better serve you, the customer.

So if there were some you were interested in, you should definitely pick them up this week, before the price increase. ;)

We are also hard at work updating everything for WordPress 3.1, adding some new features / improvements and updating the ebooks to not only reflect those changes, but to add new additional instructions as well. *whew*

Network Roles beta

Our latest plugin needs a beta test, so we thought we’d do something a little different. You can purchase the plugin for HALF PRICE while it is in beta. As far as we can tell, it works perfectly fine, we just haven’t been able to test it in all situations. So, give it a whirl, have fun and please report back to us.

I also did a handy screencast.

Network Roles allows the super admin to assign specific users a particular role across all blogs in the network. Get it here for $24.95
