Does anyone have any experience with Easy Digital Downloads? https://easydigitaldownloads.com/ I'm looking at using it for a update to a client site instead of WooCommerce, as she is only selling Digital Assets. Also the theme I'm using isn't WooCommerce optimised. Thanks in advance for any insights!

Hi Chris - I've used EDD a couple of times and can certainly recommend it. It's quick to setup, works well with different themes and doesn't seem as bloated as some other e-commerce plugins.

This looks like a cool project, allows you to customise plugins for when you do wordpress installs: http://wproller.com/

I use managewp.com clone to do this myself (as it copies settings too) but this may be useful for some.

Yeah, it's self hosted and I'm pretty sure it is based on the same communication tech i.e. forked from MWP. They had a launch offer where you got access to all of the plugins for a single fee and I got on board then, it's a little pricier now however the base is free and it is still a great option if you don't want to be locked into an ongoing subscription. I like them both!

Realised that I haven't introduced myself! Thanks +Daniel McClure for the invite.

I build Wordpress sites for small businesses on a local basis. I've always got clients on the go but I'm looking to really step it up this year and grow my business so I can quit my day job. I'm keen to start learning PHP to code plugins and further customise themes.

Glad to be here. I only dabble on G+ and other social media these days as they suck me in to the point of me not getting any actual work done!

How would you describe your use of social networks? a) constant or b) peaks & troughs?

Ordered a new 13" Macbook Air and a Thunderbolt Display last night. I'm a little excited.

Any UK based WPers going to either a 10th Anniversary Party or Wordcamp this year?

Interesting comment on this Project Management plugin. Thoughts?

Interesting point of view Daniel. I don't like stealing, and as I'm not a Basecamp user I can't say how close to it the design is (looks pretty close). That said the existence of a project management solution that is robust on the Wordpress backbone is good, but yes something innovative is needed here.

I think often with free wordpress plugins people just like to create things. Without knowing the devs perhaps they just wanted to create something cool. If they start charging there is more of an issue.

That said, Asana is free for up to 30 people and would probably be a better thing to use here.

I'm looking to learn from people who make a full time income from a Wordpress services / products business. Hit me up with people.

Hi Dan,

I agree that would be great.

I'd also like more guidance on jumping from a passionate user to coding plugins etc. Again, it's seems the information is out there but not in a clear path.

Waiting for an exact delivery date for new Macbook Air. My current old Macbook seems to have ground to a halt in protest of it's impending retirement.
