WP User Frontend Homepage

As we mentioned earlier, it is used to manage your WordPress from the frontend. You can do a fleet of tasks like you can restrict your users to submit contents, let them register for an event, build membership sites, manage subscriptions, and the list goes on.

The best part is that you don't have to give your users access to the backend every time they want to submit contents – Which eventually makes your WordPress more secure.

WP User Frontend is an effective plugin for interactive websites. It keeps non technical users away from the WordPress backend. This way you can keep your website safe and secure.

And as an admin you can also manage your tasks from the frontend, you don't always have to go back and forth from backend to frontend or vice versa.

The philosophy of managing everything from the frontend is what makes the tool unique and exclusive.

Motivating People throughout the Pandemic

2020 will remain unforgettable particularly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many offices and brick and mortar stores were closed throughout the world. And so, people were encouraged to manage their offices virtually and eCommerce businesses saw a boom.

This was not an exception for us. It all started from our own office. We allowed our employees to work remotely from their home.

Moving forward, we inspired people to start online businesses to stay well-off throughout the pandemic. With WP User Frontend people built their own membership site, alumni site, and used it to monetize their existing websites.

Thanks to our all persistent customers who are keeping the graph consistent even in such global crisis.

As owners, we knew kindness and positivity will long be remembered. Thus in the COVID-19 pandemic, we considered the safety concerns and so we let our employees do their job from home.
