ManageWP is an innovative service for WordPress that allows website owners to manage all of their sites from one convenient administration panel. From there an end-user can perform many of the tedious WordPress tasks such as updating plugins.
ManageWP for WordPress
We’ve had built in support for ManageWP since WPtouch Pro 2.0, and recently improved our support in our new WPtouch Pro 3 product. So if you’re using WPtouch Pro and ManageWP, you can be sure you’ll have a great experience managing the product from multiple sites.
Some of the tasks that ManageWP helps automate are:
- Automatically update all of your plugins, including WPtouch Pro, with one click
- Email notification for when updates are available
- Automatic monitoring of your sites to make sure they are online
- Ability to clone a website and deploy a copy in another location
- Automated backups to make sure you never lose data
- Ability to post to any of your managed sites from one location
Many of our WPtouch Pro users love the service, so we wanted to bring it to the attention of anyone who wasn’t familiar with it. If you manage multiple sites and want to reduce some of your administrative load, then definitely check them out.

I’ve been traveling around the world for almost two years now, working on WPtouch Pro during the days, and often spending my evenings and weekends exploring a new city. I’ve worked on WPtouch Pro all the way from Ushuaia, Argentina (the southernmost city in the world), to a little café right outside the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to visit Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, in Peru. I was actually a bit surprised to find out that my iPhone had a weak data signal, so I decided on a whim to fire up BraveNewCode’s website to see if it worked. Low and behold the mobile version of BraveNewCode, powered by WPtouch Pro 3, rendered beautifully in front of one of the 7 Wonders of the World.

I had my Olympus OM-D camera with me as well, so I used it to snap the photo above. Today I’m in Peru’s Sacred Valley working on a few new features that will soon be released in WPtouch Pro 3, so stay tuned.
