Our new Weight Tracking site!

Recently I decided to build my own website for people to track their weight for free! Having a Weight Loss Tracker plugin of my own, it made sense to build a website using it! Besides providing people with a service, it will allow me to develop and test my site in different ways. I’ll now be able to use my plugin as an end user and have access to a larger range of data to test with – that can only be good news for the progression of the plugin! So please, [fruitful_btn link=”” color=”success” size=”large”]Visit Track Your Weight[/fruitful_btn]

Why the licensing model has changed

As of 5.1, I have decided to change the way the Weight Loss Tracker plugin is licensed. Currently licensing is a one-off fee of £30 and this gives you access to all of Pro features indefinitely. Moving to a yearly license However, to support development of new features and ongoing maintenance I’ve decided to change the license to be yearly. I feel this is fair as I actively improve the plugin and people receive more for their money each year. Licenses bought pre 5.1 (Sept 2017) Of course, if you bought your Pro license pre 5.1, I will honour the one-off fee […]
