Plugin for Creating Sales Page Tables

In last week’s forum focus, we touched on a thread that gave a low-tech method to create table on your site through images.

This time around, we shine the spotlight on a couple of plugins that will allow for more involved tables that can be created to display different products (or anything else) on your membership site.

If you are looking for a way to include tables without having to code them yourselves, then these options may be just what you need.

    the post by charly opened my eyes.. I back up but never thought about what would happen if the server went down.. I back up but never thought about getting “back up” hehehe crazy..

    the backup plan should be in 2 sites. Online is much better as if it was on your local drive or external HDD , you might lose it or not even have it updated on daily . weekly basis.
    it should be an automated process that would guarantee if anything goes wrong you can restore everything is short time and back to business with not much interruption .
    sometimes we do mistakes . I deleted a folder that included my CSS for one of the websites that I worked hardly on – Thank god i was able to get everything back as i got the CSS file opened locally. I learned that I must do back up ALWAYS.

      Good tips @Sameh

      Keeping an “off site” backup is something that is of great benefit. If you are able to store everything online, then you don’t have to worry about your external hard drive failing.

      Of course, if you can back up to an external hard drive AND an online source, even better!
