What have we done for you lately??

We’ve been making some exciting behind-the-scenes changes lately in the Webinology labs. Some of them have been to improve our processes, but others have a more direct impact on our customers.

Plugin Updates

We often write custom plugins for our clients to provide them with specialized functionality. These plugins improve may be designed to improve their business processes, enhance interactions with their customers, or give them differentiators that no one else has.

As WordPress users, we’re accustomed to plugin updates being a click away. For our maintenance plan customers, you already know that plugin updates happen without you ever having to think about it.

But for some custom plugins – like the ones that are unique to our clients, that don’t live in the official WordPress repository – don’t get the same advantages. To keep those updated has, up until now, required a manual process for us.

We’ve worked out a method, however, by which all of our custom plugins can be updated in the same way as other WordPress plugins. We’ll be rolling this out to our clients in the near future.

What that means for our clients is that it’ll be faster, more efficient, and more hands-free for us to keep your custom code secure and up to date.


WordPress is mostly written in PHP, a language that runs on your web server. JavaScript is a scripting language that has exploded in popularity over the past few years because it allows developers to make very robust websites.

There are many frameworks available for JavaScript, and around here we prefer Vue.js and Angular. Recently, we’ve trailblazed methods of using Vue.js to create the visual elements – the screens through which people interact with websites – inside of our WordPress plugins.

What does this mean for our clients? Things we develop for you – and for your customers – will have richer, more interactive, more user-friendly interfaces.

It also means we can do more with WordPress than ever before.

Our Support Site

While it’s still very new, our new support site is no longer in “beta” but ready for action. We looked at a lot of different options, but a) because we’re WordPress people and b) because it was “awesome,” we went with the paid version of Awesome Support for WordPress.

It notifies us via email and in Slack, so we’ll never miss a ticket. You can submit tickets via email (contact us for the email, we don’t like spam either!) so it’s super convenient.

What this means to our clients is that you have one place to reach out where everyone on the team can see and act upon your requests.

We don’t need no stinkin’ laurels!

We’re excited to be bringing new things to the table for our clients, and don’t worry… we’ll never stop. “Resting on our laurels” is just not how we webinologists roll; around here, we’re always looking for new and better ways to do things.

That’s just how we’re wired!
