Win 3 Licenses of the WordPress Manual Plugin

Although never fully intended as a CMS, WordPress is indeed one of the most widely used CMS in the world.

When working with some clients, you’ll often encounter difficulties training your clients on how to use it properly in order to update the content of their websites.

This is were the WordPress User Manual Plugin comes in really handy. This plugin is a very solid and professional effort by the folks at VideoUserManuals.

They created a very comprehensive video and online manual packaged as a WordPress plugin that you, as a developer, can give to your clients.

The plugin contains over 30 video tutorials and over 100 pages of instructions, always updated and covering from version 2.8 through 3.01 (and updated with every new stable version).

One week from today, we’ll be giving away 3 Lifetime Licenses to the WordPress Manual Plugin (which sells for $24 per month) to three lucky WDD readers.

Here’s a bit more information about the WordPress Manual Plugin:

  • Over 30 video tutorials
  • Online written manual with over 100 pages
  • An updated manual with every stable release of wordpress
  • The plugin is fully customizable and rebrandable

Each time WordPress updates, a new set of videos is produced to cover the new functionality and they also update the written manual. The plugin also detects the version of WordPress that you are using and displays the correct version of the manual.

How much is your time worth? Developers always underestimate how much time they spend on preparing tutorials and answering client questions.

Widget example from VideoUsersManual

The plugin is fully brandable and customizable, so you can replace the default imagery with your own, to give your client a better branded experience.

In addition, in the event that offer only certain pieces of functionality to your client, such as using the pages feature but not posts, you can turn off the specific video sections that you do not wish to show to your client.

Here’s a short video explaining things further:

To participate and be eligible to win, simply leave a comment about the WordPress Manual Plugin below or post a link below to a retweet that you made about this contest. The results will be announced here on WDD on November 24th, 2010.

Please note that winners of previous contests have sometimes been disqualified for not adhering to the rules, so please read the entry requirements carefully.

Only one entry per person. Duplicate entries will be voided. Winners will also be contacted via email.

    This plugin looks great. I am always having to train clients how to work with their WP installs once I have them set up and ready to go. This would be a great help. retweeted also @Mauideveloper

  • David Fiske

    What a great idea! It’s a simple solution that makes a lot of sense. I like the fact that it’s a self updating plugin and goes through the basics with users, offering a value added service that could easily pay for itself time and time again. The fact that it could be branded too is the icing on the cake :-)

    RT via

  • Jesus Leon

    That looks nice and useful! I’ll give a try :)

  • Matt Webster

    This looks an amazing plugin. I have recently been looking at manuals and training for clients (mainly in the charity sector) and to have something that they can refer to continually would be great. Saves their time and mine. Would definitely love to use this!

  • Carlos

    What a useful idea this WordPress Manual Plugin is. Papa likes.

  • Ben

    Count me in for some of this, fingers crossed. Would love to win it!!!!

    It will be a great if I can win 1 license of it . Well tweeted this blogpost too .

  • pceaies

    Looks like a great plugin to include with WP sites before launch to help clients out. Should save a lot of time.

  • Panos G. Pgn
  • Graham

    I have personally used this plugin for clients and have already had such positive feedback.

    I think something like this is long overdue and will be welcomed throughout the WordPress community!

    Well done guys :)

    • Troy Dean

      Hi Graham,

      Thanks for the kind words. We’re really glad it’s helping your business.

  • Orlando

    Best of lucky to me!

  • Lane Lester

    Indeed I do spend a considerable amount of time getting clients up to speed in taking care of content on their WordPress sites. Some individual help would still be needed even with the plugin, but a whole lot less.

  • Miguel

    Looks good, seems like an amazing idea.

  • Absalan

    What a fantastic plugin it really is!!!
    Hopefully I would be a winner!

  • Dasha

    Wow, this is very very handy! I’m just starting out as WP developer and was estimating the other day how long would it take to write up the manuals.

    Now, I’d looooove to use the WordPress Manual Plugin. There are both videos and text, and everything is handily appears in the WP admin area – so clients won’t lose the manuals.

    Sounds amazing!!! Would love to win :)



    • Troy Dean

      Hi Dasha,

      We spent a bit of time estimating how long it was taking us too. That’s why we made the plugin to begin with.

      Glad you like it.

      Nice T-shirts by the way.

  • Chris Fougere
  • Aniel Shri

    The WordPress Manual Plugin would be so useful. I’ve actually encountered situations where I had to train people on how to use WP.
    (If this were facebook, I’d hit the like button)

  • Martin

    This looks great! I dind’t even know this plugin exsisted. I have been creating tutorials for a lot of clients for a whole range of products but I have always found it a pain to keep the WordPress tuts up to date and extensive enough to make them as good as what I am seeing here.

    Count me in for a license;-).

    Love to win one!

  • Max

    The plugin is extremely useful for clients who are entirely new to updating websites (and certainly to the concept of a CMS – even one as easy-to-use as WordPress).

  • Anne

    Time is money, and this saves both in spades! Thank you, Webdesigner Depot for yet another amazing opportunity.

    • Troy Dean

      We think so too Anne.

  • Hector Lee

    I really like how it detects your version of WordPress and provides the relevant video. That was one of my concerns. Well done.

    • Troy Dean

      Hi hector,

      Yeah it was important to make sure clients with later versions of WordPress were getting the right videos and that clients still on older versions were not confused by new features they hadn’t seen yet.

      Glad you like it.

  • Matthias

    Whoa. I had no idea this existed. That could save countless hours training clients. Wicked cool.

  • Ankit

    Extremely useful!

  • paul

    This is a great contest! I’d love to win a licence. I downloaded the 3 manuals about making WP better for clients and I’d really like to offer their videos in my offering

    • Troy Dean

      Hi Paul,

      Glad you like the plugin. How did you find the eBooks? Any feedback you’d like to share?

      • paul

        Troy, the ebooks are fantastic!
        I will be integrating much of the advice in my workflow, in particular the white label plugin.
        I suggest anyone that creates WordPress themes for clients read these guides.

        thanks for sharing your knowledge.

  • Carm

    I would definitively love to win 1 license !

  • arno

    • Troy Dean

      Hi Miriam,

      Glad you like the plugin. Good luck in the comp.

  • Jaime
  • Ivan

    Sounds like an interesting plugin. The trick is to get the client to check it BEFORE they call the web designer :-)

  • Chris

    Wow… now I might not have to ask Santa Claus for the WordPress Manual Plugin.

  • Robin S

    In fact, I have made many instructional videos, only to have to update them when the app or plugin is updated. It’s very time consuming and, well, heh heh, my videos aren’t very professional either. This is an excellent idea. I only hope the client will use them.

    • Troy Dean

      Hi Robin,

      That’s exactly what we were doing, which is why we decided to make the plugin.

      Glad you like it.

  • Eduardo

    What a great incentive to drop in for a client!

      Glad you like it.

  • Vance Bell

    This appears to be a very useful product. Wish they had a fixed-cost version instead of subscription-only.

  • Julia May

    I know this plugin will come in handy to my husband, who’s often has to write WordPress theme instructions and manuals for his clients. This is going to save him (or better say us) plenty of time.

    • Troy Dean

      Hi Julia,

      You should get your hubby to read this case study from Joakim.

      He now has more time to spend with his family because of our plugin.

  • Phil Meyer

    This must be the plugin of the year! It’s an absolute pain creating/updating WordPress manuals for clients, and this plugin would be an absolute Godsend.

    Gotta have it! Gotta-gotta-gotta have it (is that a song?)!


    • Troy Dean

      Wow Phil, thanks for the kind words. Feel free to vote for us anytime there’s an award competition on.

      Can we get a testimonial from you? :)

      Glad you like our plugin.

  • Nichole

    How perfect! Would save me tons of time explaining the basics of WordPress over, and over, and over.


    Smooth !

  • Jason

    My client could def. use this. He just asked me if I have some time to come over and give him lessons on WP. My response was a couple of links to online videos. This plugin would be a better option. It’s the first I heard of this. Thanks much.

  • Ian

    Wow. A lifetime license? That’s awesome sign me up!

  • Beneberle

    This looks really promising, especially the ability to re-brand the plugin and turn off certain aspects of the manual that aren’t relevant to the end client.

    I don’t think this would replace the need to provide documentation for custom extensions you’ve added to the core, but it certainly could save some time addressing the common questions and problems users face when being introduced to WordPress.

    • Troy Dean

      That’s right Beneberie. A bit of documentation for the customisation you’ve done to WP goes along way towards building a great relationship with the client. Our plugin is designed to save you the time it would usually take to explain the core features.

      Glad you like it.

  • Veronica

    The WordPress Manual Plugin looks AMAZING, I can’t believe I haven’t seen it before.

  • Benjamin Christine

    This is a brilliant competition! Please include me! :) Many Thanks

  • David Riveroll

    Can’t wait to get my hands on the WordPress Manual Plugin. Awesome idea, let’s empower clients to REALLY start managing their own content!

    Even though for us, using WordPress is very simple, my experience is that my clients still don’t get it, or they forget quickly…. or, once they got accustomed to it, the version changes!

    This single plugin handles those problems and frees up our time. Thanks for the idea and the hard work

  • Chris M

    Very very awesome, well, here’s my entry, holding thumbs that I might be one of the lucky three people to get a copy!

This will definitly make my life and my customers life a lot easier!

  • Brandon Nielsen

    This would be extremely helpful for customer training. I only use WordPress as well, and would definitely implement this plugin.

    sounds really helpful. let’s see…

  • Duane Ashworth

    talk about a timesaver , getting really sick of creating custom manuals for each client

    Seems like a great plugin! In my opinion, WordPress is the most user-friendly CMS for people with little to no tech savvy.

  • Hugh

    I am not a fan of the per-month payment model. Sadly it is gaining popularity. However, this one has me in the rare situation of seriously considering it. Here’s hoping I win!! This looks to be a great product!

    Wow this is going to be really helpful for me since I use WordPress for all of my clients! I really love how it simply stream videos from their server so there is no need to worry about eating up bandwidth.

  • Leah

    Love the idea of video tutorial ‘inside’ the WordPress itself!

  • Vanessa MacLeod

    This plugin would make my workflow SO much easier. I have a pdf that I’ve been building since I had my first client – with the basics, but I always have to update it for each separate client, and I think a plugin like this would certainly ease my workload.

  • Goce

    WPMP – I like it

  • masenchipz

    very useful to give lessons about wordpress on the client, btw this video for beginner or for expert user?

  • Olga Pantelidou

    Very useful! Clients will appreciate it

  • Codrut

    Nice wordpress plugins

  • rlewis

  • Avery

  • Christian

    I love WordPress! This tool could sure come in handy. retweeted! :)

  • Piotr

    Thta’s great. Should be very helpfull. YO!

  • Danny

    The WordPress Manual Plugin looks pretty neat to me. I think it’s one of the most valuable plugins as a web developer.

    Basically it should go like this (I guess).

    You develop a website featuring wordpress for any customer and just install the plugin. After your job is done you show your client how to access the plugin and the tutorials and you probably reduce like 90% or more of the amount of time/work you’d have to do otherwise…like BEING the “tutorial” so your client knows how WP works :P

  • Ben

    Very nice! I’d love to have it!

  • Theo

    Very useful plugin, would be nice to win a license.

  • Darkened Soul

    I would like one of those as well… bring it on!!!

  • Edwin

    Oh, this would be a godsend.
    I don’t think any of my clients have visited word-press to see how their site works.

    Bring on the ids, I say. If I don’t win (highly likely) then I might consider buying, but I think $25/mo is a bit rich. Guess I could pass this on to the client/s.

  • Thomas Townsend

    The Word PrRess manual Plug-in would save me a ton of time with customers. As a small video produser we often create small Video Vignettes forour clints but it’s a lot of work and cuts into the bottom line.

  • Bogdan

    great plugin, could come in handy !


    I never knew about the existence of this nice plugin. Thank you WDD for bringing it to my attention. It seems really helpful.

  • Apisit

    Pretty sweet and interesting plugin.

  • Aaron

    What a great time saver. I would love to offer this to clients.

  • Matt H.

    A plugin that would definitely save designers and developers alike a ton of time when dealing with clients! Would be awesome to have a copy of!

  • Edwin

    Wow!! This is the best plugin I ever saw! This would save me so much time. Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Nate

    Very cool plugin. Would be great for all my client projects!

  • Huw Rowlands

    Wow! I NEED something like this to save me sooo much wasted time repeating myself!! And of course, to help my clients out!! Thanks for the oppurtunity!

  • Edison Leon

    Did I win?

  • Mikael Pittam

    Thanks for your generosity. I really appreciate your content and advice. Keep up the great work.

  • Pascal

    Cool, this sounds all pretty neat. It would be great to have one.

  • Carlos

    Wow–this would help my business so much. The amount of time I spend training clients and helping them with WordPress dashboard is unreal–even with a basic training session I get so many emails and questions about basic functionality–this would free up my time to get more clients up and running!

  • Monica Gardenier

    This WordPress Manual Plugin looks incredible with the bonus that it is continuously updated. Time is money – this will save countless amount of time both for our clients as well as for us. I like the idea of being able to customize and brand the plugin – it will give a clean company experience.
    Well done and I am looking forward to using it!

  • http://www.cgomedia Celestina Gomes
  • Jacob

    Looks like a great plugin. We have been contemplating creating some stuff like that for a while, for our clients, but would definitely prefer to use something out-of-the-box!

  • Kevin

    This would surely help me in making my projects more unique according to my clients!

  • aaron broberg

    Sweet I could use that.

  • David Parsons

    The WordPress Manual Plugin seems to be exactly what I need. I have thought about doing this same thing several times throughout my years of being a web designer.

  • John

    I was thinking about signing up for this plugin.. it looks killer!! Maybe I’ll hold out until you pick some winners.

    Awesome contest guys!

  • HeriNXI

    it would save times and money :)

  • David Bates

    Would love to win this plug-in.

    I find I am using WordPress more and more with our teachers and school districts. The Manuals look like such a great training resource.


  • Marty

    what a great plug-in for any new user
    be great to have one

  • Jamie

    Awesome been looking for something like this for ages never anytime to create our own – Retweeted @2ndVariety

  • Spaksu

    Great plugin.. I’d like to have it. :)

  • zepatente

    Awesome plugin !! and what a great idea to made this contest!!!!

  • tim

    I hope I don’t win! ;)

  • Eric

    This is an awesome idea and it will bring great value to both my clients and myself! Thanks! =)

  • Peter

    WordPress Manual Plugin looks like a great tool. At work we are looking at launching 12+ sub-sites to our over all site. These will be managed by various departments. I think this would really help the parties involved solve most of their own problems and take advantage of the power that is WP.

  • Renee Shupe

    I currently use the WordPress Manual Plugin and love it as do my clients! i would love, love, love the lifetime license. How cool that would be!

    I’ve noticed a huge shift in the type of support and how much support I provide for my clients directly.

  • Chameleon Kid

    That’s a superb concept. I hate to think how much time I’ve spent training clients on the WordPress backend never mind the follow up calls when the client can’t remember how to schedule a post or moderate a comment. Count me in on this comp!!

  • Ray

    This looks a great plugin. These guys really understand some of the difficulties in delivering a CMS to clients. Support (whether through documentation or over the phone) is one of the most time consuming aspects – that can significantly eat into any profit you might make.

    Excellent stuff!

  • Danielle

    it’s certainly true that it is easy to underestimate the time you spend on making manuals and videos for customers that use wordpress. Even though wordpress is very easy to use (and to install) the large amount of options can sometimes be overwhelming for people who are unfamiliar with a cms.

    Using this plug-in would certainly help both my customers and myself.

    ps tweet >

  • Sadiq

    Wishing every1 luck & great plugin would be a time saver of note….

  • Leo

    Thats awesome such a plugin! Very usefull to provide our clients with this plugin, wich should give us more time to work on great product with WordPress itself.

  • crowntastic

    This is one plugin I can really really use at work.

  • matt

    Wow. This plug-in looks fantastic. I just recently dropped 2-hours with with two different clients creating step-by-steps and answering questions. This looks amazing. And kudos to you for keeping on top of the comments. Crossing my fingers for a lifetime license!

  • Aaron

    What a great way to educate and assist new clients! It’s so easy to forget what learning WordPress for the first time was like after so many years of using and coding for it.

  • Actors Websites

    Looks great. I’ve been using skitch and posting them into pdf’s up until now.

  • Troy Dean

    Hey Pascal,

    Internationalisation is on the wishlist and something we wil be considering for future releases depending on demand. We have votes for Spanish, French, Italian and now Dutch.

  • Troy Dean

    Hi Glen,

    Thanks for taking the time to review our website. Feel free to drop us a ilne with any feedback anytime.

    Happy pressing of words!

  • Troy Dean

    Interesting Paul, we just spoke about that the other day in one of our meetings. Maybe we could provide a demo of a few videos and a few pages of the manual on one of our domains so you could all see it in action.

    How does that sound?

  • Troy Dean

    You’re absolutely right Nathan, consistency of process is crucial to running an efficient business. Our plugin definitely helps with this.

    Thanks for the observations.

  • Troy Dean

    Hi Dave,

    The reason we charge a monthly subscription fee is to cover the cost of updating the manual and all the videos every time WordPress is updated. So when WordPress launches new features, like the image editor, you don’t need to visit your clients and train them how to use it. We do that for you. With your logo on it.

    We think that will save you a lot more than one hour every month.

    And that’s well worth $24.

  • Troy Dean

    Hi Connor,

    That’s exactly what we use to do.

    Glad you like the plugin.

  • Troy Dean

    Aw shucks Lenny, thanks for the kind words.

  • Troy Dean

    Our thoughts exactly Eric. When you consider that this tool saves you at least a few hours every month, it allows you to spend that extra time building more awesome websites with an awesome platform like WordPress. Or hanging out with your family.

  • Troy Dean

    Hi Hugh,

    We charge per month to cover the cost of updating the videos and the written manual every time WordPress is updated. So when you update your clients to new versions of WordPress, we update their training materials for you.

    Good luck in the contest!

  • Troy Dean

    Bingo Noel, you hit the nail right on the head. Free up training time to build more sites and win more business.

  • Troy Dean

    He he he. Thanks Nick.

  • Troy Dean

    Okay Shawn, now we are blushing.

    Thanks for the kind words.

  • Troy Dean

    Hi Vanessa,

    You’ll be pleased to know this plugin started out as a humble little PDF.

    Good luck in the contest!

  • Troy Dean

    Couldn’t have said it better ourselves, Danny.

  • Troy Dean

    Hi Edwin,

    When we calculated that we were spending at least 3 hours every month training our clients, we figured that $24 was a humble fee to pay to have someone else do it for us and keep it updated with every new release of WordPress and let us put our logo on it.

    Good luck in the contest!

  • Troy Dean

    Hi Renee, we love hearing great feedback from people who already use our plugin. We are glad it has had a positive impact on your business.

    Good luck in the contest!

  • Cenk

    This is one plugin I really always useful at work.

  • Alan

    Just getting into WordPress in depth. This WordPress Manual Plugin would be a tremendous asset to productivity, let alone creativity. Two for one!

  • Bobby Adamson

  • Stephen

    Now why diden’t I think of that? Indeed, CMS Extraordinaire! Wow!
    Imagine the possibilities… everything actually being able to finish a cup of coffee
    to getting to know your family and friends again.

  • Kristel Hayes

    Wow, this is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I never really win anything, so maybe I have a good shot :-). I’m sure this will be a smart investment, even if I don’t win. I spend at least 2-3 hours a week on basic WordPress how-to support. This appears to be my ticket to shaving down that time & allocating it to other projects.

  • Greg Cole

    This would be great for managing client sites. Love the fact that it is brandable as well!
