wpCentral – The ultimate multiple site management plugin for businesses, bloggers and developers

wpCentral detailed review

Starting a new WordPress site seems quite easy for beginners with some basic IT knowledge. Managing it isn’t a problem either. However, when you add more sites and start concentrating on the economical aspect of your blog or site you can easily be confounded by the sheer amount of work it requires. You have to juggle between the various routine management tasks and business development. The priorities get overrun and before you know it starts taking a toll on your business interests. Thankfully, you don’t have to wait for such an extreme case as there is a precise solution available. We are talking about wpCentral.

wpCentral- A reliable partner for managing all your sites

wpCentral is a powerful multi-purpose plug-in for managing all your sites in one place. It merges all your WP dashboards into a single dashboard thus enabling you to manage multiple sites within one screen. It solves your no.1 problem- switching among different WP dashboards. Secondly, it not only allows you to perform all your management tasks but even simplifies and shortens the processes as well. That’s a double gain- saving time on multiple site login/logouts and managing tedious tasks like backups, security management, updates, and present stats with just a few clicks. Let’s explore its features and benefits:

Stress-free updates

The exhausting task of logging to each of your WP admin panels and updating it separately is replaced with a 2-step process of selecting the desired sites from wpCentral panel and click on update. 

Simply put, you don’t have to log in separately to different wp-admin panels for updating a theme or plug-in. Simply open wpCentral panel, select the websites that to be updated and update them all with a single click! You are all done!

Taking complication out of backups process

Taking a backup of different sites is a cumbersome task. Even the conventional backup plugins solve just a tip of the problem as you still need to go through multiple logins and repetitive processes. Did we mention that such plugins consume far more space and resources than the benefits they provide? Relieve your sites by deleting all these bulky plugins as wpCentral not only backs up all your sites (more efficiently) but also offers you an intuitive single-click process to backup multiple sites from a single dashboard!

But its benefits even go beyond just providing you an easy way to automatically backup multiple sites. You can even schedule your backups on a daily or monthly basis that rids you from remembering periodical backups. Moreover, you also have the option to select the storage location- server, Dropbox or Google Documents! Just instruct wpCentral regarding the specific sites, backup frequency, and storage location.

This is a one time process and there’s no need to do anything else. wpCentral will loyally keep on taking the periodical backups and saving copies to the selected location. You just need this single time process to save the latest content for each site and bounce back fairly quickly even if multiple sites get hacked or crashed!

How can wpCentral help WordPress professionals?

As a WordPress developer you possibly have at least a few clients who want you to maintain their sites regularly. However, the increasing competition has reduced the prices and the new challenge is to reduce the price while maintaining the same level of services. Can it ever be possible? wpCentral can help you a great deal here. 

With wpCentral you can merge all your clients’ admin panels into a single dashboard which saves time and efforts on repetitive login/logout.

·         The plug-in also allows you to automate and schedule the backups while also instructing the storage location- you again save a huge chunk of efforts and time by delegating this task to wpCentral.

In simple words, you charge for time and efforts and your overall income depend upon the number of projects and clients. With a unified dashboard, single-click process and scheduled automated procedures wpCentral helps you to reduce your time/efforts. 

Reduced Time/efforts = reduced price- The equation seems fair, isn’t it? 

Pro Tip: Why not utilize your free time to search for new projects and further multiply your income?

One thing worth mentioning is that the WordPress may still edit, change or remove the new features (discussed here) in the final version. However, no extra or additional feature will be added now as the version is in a feature freeze state.

The Block editor of the new version would be equipped with more advanced features enabling the users to exercise better control over presentation style.

New Blocks

WordPress 5.4 will ship with 2 new blocks dedicated to social media and better button formatting

Next, you can click the add button to insert the desired social media icon. By clicking on the inserted icon, you can also link it to your desired social media page.

Buttons Block

The button block has also got some extended features making it possible for you to add multiple buttons side by side.

You can either choose the gradient background colo

rs for your button or add your colors and text to give it a fully personalized appeal.

Editing text color inside paragraph block

One of the limitations with the paragraph blocks in the current version is that the selected text color gets applied to the entire paragraph block by default. There is no option to change the text color of individual words or lines in the same paragraph block.

The upcoming version will allow you to change the text color of individual words/lines in the same paragraph block.
