How To Set Up Paid Memberships Pro.

Did you know that I write, record, direct and edit most of the videos on Paid Memberships Pro? Have a look at the first video I made on how to “Initially Set Up” the Paid Memberships Pro Plugin.

 

For more Paid Memberships Pro Videos tutorials and guides see my newly published YouTube Channel.


New Videos Coming Soon!

Word on the street is that there may be some more videos coming soon about Remote Work, Design, Web Development, Working for a WordPress Plugin Company and more! If this is something that will interest you, I would love to hear about it. If you have some more ideas for videos you would like to see, then hit me up in the comment section below 🙂

Change the word “Howdy” in the WordPress Admin Bar.

change the word howdy to hello in WordPRess Admin

Howdy 👋😊

If you have ever wanted to change the word “Howdy” in your WordPress Admin bar (the black bar at the top of your website that can be seen once you have logged in),  there are a couple of ways you can do this.

 


  1. Use a plugin from the WordPress.org repository.
  2. Use some custom code – recommended to use with a customization plugin – (an example of a customization plugin. You can also use add this to your functions.php file but this is no longer recommended.

The code gist above will change the word “Howdy” to “Hello”. If you want some further help editing this to other words or installing it on your site, let me know down in the comment section below.


 

All aboard the YouTube Train 🚂

I am happy to announce that I have officially become a YouTube Contributor and Creator. I even have 1 Subscriber, thanks, mom 🤣!

Check out my channel here –

Still very new, I have 4 videos on there focusing mainly on WordPress Tutorials walking through various plugin setups for Paid Memberships Pro and Yoohoo Plugins.


Content Creator?

I have been toying with the idea of becoming a content creator on YouTube for a while now and this might be the start of me doing that! Feeling excited.

While YouTube is incredibly saturated it will be an amazing challenge and learning curve for me to produce content and especially content that people want to see.

 

Once again, I owe the skills I learned surrounding video to my job at PMPro. Check out the videos I have made here – https://www.paidmembershipspro.com/step-by-step-guides/videos/

I am lucky enough to have made a few dozen this year alone!

Let’s see what the future brings 🤩

Making WordPress Things

My brother Andrew and I are working together on a project to build premium WordPress Plugins with the focus on User Management, WooCommerce, and some other cool integrations to boot!

Without a shadow of a doubt, this initiative was inspired by the amazing WordPress Power couple – Jason & Kim Coleman, founders of the popular membership plugin – Paid Memberships Pro.


We have two divisions of this project Yoohoo Plugins as well as Yoohoo themes.  While Yoohoo is not our full-time gig, we are working hard whenever we have the spare time to make sure these plugins/themes really add value to our users and help make their site making experience so much better!

As mentioned before, if it was not for the amazing support, inspiration, and education we received working at Paid Memberships Pro, I don’t think we would have come this far. Not even close.

WP Zapier

At the moment, one of our more popular plugins WP Zapier has really started gaining traction. With the skills I learned making tutorial videos for PMPro I was able to make this video to help promote our plugin.


Slow and Steady Wins the Race.

Even though our plugins are gaining popularity and traction, we have seen that progress is slow, which is fine. Wait. More than fine. Perfect in fact. We love what we do and what we are working on. If there is something that I have learned about online businesses is that it takes time, energy and commitment to succeed.

So for us, we plan to show up (when we can), be consistent, do our best and pivot if we need to 🙂
