So, let’s begin the late August 2023 Open Newsletter with the best news of the month.
Yes, you hear it right. After months of waiting and hard work, InstaWP has launched the 2-way sync feature for its plugin InstaWP Connect. 😍
We are very excited to share more details about it. (Plus, there are many other amazing updates that our product team wishes to share with you. 🥳)
InstaWP 2-Way Sync is Magical 😎
Previously, we only allowed creating staging from live in 1 click using InstaWP Connect, but things are even better with 2-way sync.
Now, whenever you install our 1-click migration and staging plugin to your WP sites, you will find an additional tab called Sync (which is now in Beta). Enabling the syncing functionality for your WordPress site will allow us to track all changes you are making to your site (Don’t worry! It’s fully secure).
Make changes fearlessly in the staging site, as you can later find the list of all modifications in the Sync tab in the InstaWP Connect settings. Want to merge them to your live site? Just click Sync Changes, and the magic🪄 will begin.
😍 All about Our Community Booth
InstaWP’s WordCamp US 2023 participation is unique in every sense this time. It’s because our partners helped us manage our community booth, telling our audience how they use InstaWP to improve their workflow.
WordCamps are organized to promote community spirit, and InstaWP took it a step further. Our awesome partners you might have met at the booth are:
- Vito Peleg (Co-founder and CEO, Atarim)
- Gautam Khorana (COO, Seahawk Media)
- Roger Rosweide (CCO and Co-founder, wildcloud (by WPCS))
- Colin Daniels (Co-founder & CEO at FooEvents & FooSales)
- Michelle Frechette (Director of Community Engagement, StellarWP)
- Michael Smith (Community and Partnership Lead, Gravityform)
☕Freshly Brewed in August 2023
#1 – The Clear Cache Support
As the 2-way sync is now available for our plugin users, we have added support for clearing the cache too. Our tool supports WordPress Cache / Object Cache Plugins (e.g., Radis Cache, Object Cache Pro, and Docket Cache) and 23 other plugins at this moment.
Check the list of other supported plugins below.
#2 – Vulnerability Scanner
We have introduced a new feature called Vulnerability Scanner for our customers with a PRO plan or above. It will help you build quality sites and secure your data.
You can find this in-built feature as you click on your site’s name and see enlisted options. Use this scanner to scan core plugins & themes so that all issues can be detected early and automatedly. It will generate vulnerability reports on demand and help you a lot in testing.
#3 – v2.19.0 is out!
We recently fixed and added a lot of things to our constantly improving product and launched v2.19.0 for our users. With this, we expect to upscale security and user experience for all.
You can now:
- Add PHP workers for any site needing CPU resources. (PRO plan or above)
- Use or skip tags during email marketing integrations (They’re now optional)
- Leverage better experience for plan upgrades and template purchases.
- Use Page Speed Insights, ReCaptcha, and commands hassle-freely.
