During website development, Content is one of the hardest things to manage. There’s always something that needs one more tweak! This can make the final development process seem like it’ll never end.
As Website Professionals, we have two choices.
Option One- Every time we make a small change, the entire website is moved from Staging to Live environment. Not only does this feel like double work, it is not ideal because something in the theme and plugin settings are often affected, losing your previous configuration, causing frustration!
Option two- We make corrections right on the Live site. This is also not ideal for two reasons. First of all, we are Cowboy coding; an automatic no-no! Need I say more? Second of all, now the Staging and Live Environments are out of Sync starting a snowball effect of problems down the road, setting a pattern of website chaos.
There is a Solution.
We developed WPSiteSync for Custom Post Types because we remember the challenges we faced during our Consulting days.
With WPSiteSync for Custom Post Types you can now Sync all of the Content with ease. “Going Live” with your Content means a push of a Button! It really IS that simple.
For example, you can now input all the Testimonials on the Staging site. You can preview the finished Project with your teammates and make changes as necessary before launch. You can also get Customer approval first before pushing the changes to Live.
Furthermore, WPSiteSync will not overwrite the entire website. It will only Sync the Custom Post Types content you just modified. Now, that’s efficiency!
Time to really make it work for you!
Besides pushing Content from Staging to Live, there are times where Custom Post Types need to be pulled from Target to Source Site. Instead of pulling the entire site down to your Staging environment, you now can use the “WPSiteSync for Pull” Extension along with “WPSiteSync for Custom Post Types.” Syncing Content bi-directionally just got easier!
A minute saved is a ton of money earned.
We can’t help you with all of the issues that come along with website development but WPSiteSync for Custom Post Types can help you maximize efficiency, creating a better Workflow. Time is precious. The more time you can save (and still do a stellar job), the more clients will love you. Not only will you have happy clients but think of the saved time you can use to take on additional projects or relax on the beach. That’s priceless.
For Early Adopters, we are offering our VIP Membership right now at over 60% savings. We’d love your support so we can continue developing Add-On’s such as Syncing ability with Divi, Beaver Builder, Gravity Forms, Ninja Forms and so much more!
