WishList Insider – Forum Focus 31

We realize a lot can happen throughout the course of a week. Everyone can become busy with a little of “this” and a lot of “that” during their day to day lives so it’s not always easy to keep on top of all the useful and helpful posts within the Insider Forums.

For these reasons we have decided to apply some focus to a number of posts each week that we believe can benefit our Members.

Read on for summaries and links to this week’s “Forum Focus” Posts.

“Looking Back” – Our Favorites From The 1st Year of WishList Insider – Part 1

Since we are celebrating the 1st Year Anniversary of WishList Insider launching (Time Flies!) this week, we thought it would be fun (and beneficial to Insiders) to take a “look back” at some of our favorite and most memorable posts from this past year.

We decided that our writers would select 3 articles each that they have posted and explain why they chose to feature them this week.

The criteria was relatively straight-forward; we wanted to recall what we have presented during this period and see if there is anything to add or what we may have perhaps learned since then.

With so many new members joining each week, this is a great opportunity for recent Insiders to catch something they may have missed.

For those that have been with us for some time now, we want to know what you have learned since you first joined as well.

Should be a fun trip down Membership Memory Lane 😉

Inside The Insider – Episode 51

What’s been happening this week inside WishList Insider?

We had a bit of an interesting end of the week in the Canadian WishList Products office as both Stu and Wray were without power for 24 hours.  This was due to a surprise windstorm knocking down trees and robbing us of our internet connection!

What did this mean for Inside The Insider? The guys had to get creative!

If the internet connection wouldn’t come to them, then THEY had to go to the internet connection… 😉

They discuss…

  • WishList Member 2.6 has been released!
  • Ways to prevent your site from being hacked
  • NEW Bonus Plugin is coming on Tuesday (it’s a BIG one) so register for the Webinar!
  • Car Dancing?

Follow the tips below to save yourself from the embarrassment, data theft, and angry users common with most hacked sites.
