WishList Member 3.0 is Coming

Watch the Video Below

We’ve been hinting at the release of WishList Member 3.0 for quite some time now.

This is without a doubt the biggest change to WishList Member we’ve ever had. Consequently, the development has taken us more time than we originally expected.

We started on the project over two years ago. This has definitely been our primary focus in terms of development and we’re getting very close to an official release.

As we started the project, we recognized very quickly that after 10 years of adding features here and there, we needed to rebuild the foundation of WishList Member. This was important for two reasons. First, we wanted the set up and implementation of new membership sites to be significantly easier for new users. We also needed to give ourselves the necessary framework to add significant feature enhancements moving forward.

After using WishList Member 3.0 ourselves for several months we started giving private demos to a small set of people. Our initial feedback has been tremendous and we’re ready to move to the next level.

Here is the first look video:

Our roll out plans include having a thorough BETA testing phase so we need your help.

We need as many people as possible to test WishList Member 3.0 BETA before we roll out the official release.

We are looking for WishList Member customers of all skill levels for the BETA test phase.

The two main qualifications for the WishList Member 3.0 BETA test program are:

  1. You must have a valid WishList Member license key.
  2. You must have an active Support and Update Plan.

It’s extremely important to note:

  • WishList Member 3.0 BETA should NOT be used on a live site.
  • It is intended to ONLY be used in a testing environment.

If you want to be a part of the WishList Member 3.0 BETA team you can sign up by clicking on the link below. (You will need your WishList Member license key).

We want to say thanks in advance to anyone who is ready to help us push through and get closer to our official release.

We will be sharing more news with you very soon.

Celebrating 10 Years

The year was 2008.

We were jamming out to tunes like “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay. Katy Perry debuted with her smash hit “I Kissed a Girl” and immediately proved it would not be a one hit wonder with “Hot and Cold”. Miley Cyrus proved to the world she’s got much more in her career than Hannah Montana. Lady Gaga showed the world her “Poker Face”.

On the big screen we were watching films like “The Dark Knight”, “Mamma Mia”, “Benjamin Button” and “Kung Fu Panda”. Our vampire fascination was fulfilled with the first episode in the “Twilight” series. Finally, the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked off by letting us know that Tony Stark is more than just a Billionaire Playboy in “Iron Man”.

In the technology front, we were starting to believe Facebook’s 200 million users may catch up with Blogger’s 222 million. MySpace was still on the scene with 126 million. Apple was pushing the edge by giving us GPS technology in our pockets with the iPhone 3G. They also launched a little project called the App Store. Google decided to give Apple a run for the money by introducing the Android Device. YouTube pulls the classic April Fool’s day prank of linking all videos on their main page to Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”.

It’s hard to believe all this happened 10 years ago.

This was the same year we released the very first version of WishList Member. Continue Reading →
