Nikhil Vimal adopts Front End Registration and Login Forms plugin

Several years ago, I wrote a tutorial on how to create custom registration and log in forms. That tutorial was shortly after transformed into a complete plugin that has been sold on this site since. It was a fun and popular plugin but over the last few years it was lost focus from me, primarily due to the growth of my other projects. Today I’m thrilled to announce the plugin has a new owner that will keep it updated and breath new life into it.

One year since I stopped going it alone

Since early child hood, I have always been a do-it-myself individual. It is an attitude I attribute largely to the way my father raised me and my brother. The three of us were always working around the farm making repairs and handling new construction. We did our own plumbing, electrical work, mowing, cleaning, car maintenance, and everything else. My family was reasonably well off financially so we could have hired plumbers, electricians, mechanics, etc, if something needed built or repaired, but that just was not in our nature.

AffiliateWP turns one

One year ago today, I announced the launch of my commercial plugin for managing affiliate programs in WordPress, AffiliateWP.

You should love your hosting company

I am a firm believer that if you don’t love your job, you should strive to change that by either finding one you love or making one you love. I am also a firm believer in loving where you live, who you associate with, what you do with your spare time, and every other aspect…

Your competitors should be a source of motivation

It is a common practice in all realms of business to think of your competitors as enemies. They are, after all, the ones stealing your customers and revenue. Right?

The more control I give up, the more we grow
