    • Download Zip Copy + Database

      Sadly sometimes you need to shutdown a website and every time after that you need to create a zip copy of the site + the database before you shut off the hosting. It would be great for a fast button to do this with and also solve those wanting to keep their own copy just in case.

      • Suggestions for Performance Updates

        The Site Performance review is a handy tool and it would be even better if there were details about how to implement some of the "fixes" suggested. Many of us are novices and don't know what to do to fix the critical rendering path for example. I know that a low score is bad...now what?

          • put time stamps back into the mwp backups

            In the backups for managed wordpress before managewp we had the time stamps from when the backups were taken. Devs and more advanced users used this to pick exactly what backup best suits them without it were leaving them to a risk of Wasting time restoring files.

            • "Updates" feature in new Managed WP

              Because the new Managed WP dashboard has lots of nifty widgets associated with the PRODUCTION site, I'm guessing that using the "Updates" feature that appears front and center will only update the PRODUCTION version, not the STAGING version. Not cool. Counter-intuitive.

              Makes zero sense to launch users into PRODUCTION. Either give the option, or if you're going to assume, assume that STAGING is the one that most users will want to hit right away.

              I asked in another comment, and doing so again in the hopes one of these messages will be read soon... Please remove me from this Beta…

                  Hello Tonya,
                  Excellent question! We are currently working to get the number of visitors to the website displayed in the setting section of the site. However, this is not available yet.

                  There are a few plugins you can use to get this in the meantime. If you send me an email, I can give you a few suggestions.

                  Thanks!

                • Multiple FTP uses in Managed Wordpress

                  It would be easier (less steps) if you were able to have multiple (at least one extra) ftp users or a temporary one that goes away after a set time.

                  I have to give web kid FTP access to do some stuff (php.ini) but then I have to call you guys to change password again as I am not secure knowing he securely keeps his info safe. Get me? ... :)

                  Cheers

                    • Redundant Screen?

                      When I get to my gateway, I start on this screen: https://cl.ly/1L2c3G0E2Y0r (which is a list of all my sites), then when I click on "Manage" on one of the sites, I amm taken to this screen: https://cl.ly/0Q1e04051v1G (which is also a list of my sites).

                      Seems redundant?

                        Hello,
                        Thanks for reaching out. Yes, these screens are redundant. We are in the midst of a transition time, so we have both views available. Once we are through the transition, we will only have one view. In addition, we are working with the My Account team to be able to link directly into your Site View of each product from the My Account section, which would skip both of these screens in many cases, and make the workflow more streamlined.
                        Hopefully this helps improve the experience for you.
                        Thanks again for the great feedback.
                        Best,

                      • Split the Mwp dashboard by the plan

                        So instead of people who have 2 pro mwps loading up 50 sites they get a page where they choose between the plans and then go into that group of plans.

                        This would be the quickest fix for our currently loading issue with the dashboard screen.

                          Hello,
                          Thanks so much for the recommendation. We are planning to link directly into the specific site you are interested in using directly from My Account. Hopefully this will help cut out the loading step for you. We are working on this starting soon, and will hopefully have it updated in the near future.
                          Thanks!

                        • Maintain site labels on sub-pages

                          When you're on some of the sub pages, the site name is gone from the pages. It makes you second-guess whether you're on the right page. Example screen grab: https://cl.ly/2n2Y1H0G0n1j

                          Am I sure I'm on the right page now that I'm about to start a new staging environment?

                          Pervasive site names in the breadcrumb or heading would really help.

                              GoDaddy has instructions for the "shared" cPanel servers and using Let's Encrypt.

                              While I wouldn't recommend this feature for a site needing PCI compliance.... for SEO purposes having an SSL cert is beneficial and since Let's Encrypt is free it is cost effective for just SEO purposes

                              • no progress indicator when pushing staging-->production

                                It is still a voodoo guess when this process completes ("up to 2 minutes" is neither accurate nor very informative). Some kind of real-time indicator is needed, even if it is an easily-seen timestamp indicating the last time a push was started and completed.

                                    When I logon to my Managed WP console, I immediately see all my

                                    Same thing with the three little navigation dots in the upper right.

                                    The only way to launch STAGING is by clicking the non-obvious link at the top then using that pop-up's WPAdmin button.

                                    • Use a 2-column layout

                                      A 2-column layout allows more content to be viewable and therefore reduces scrolling. The boxes containing information for each Wordpress site can be made smaller to allow for a second column. See the current 2-column layout for an example.
