getting started

    Hey Mel. A good first step is downloading and installing the WPMU DEV Dashboard plugin. It makes getting themes, plugins, support and updates a whole lot easier.

    After that, I recommend browsing the dashboard plugin you just installed to see all of the great features. Now you have everything you need at your fingertips, so it all depends on what you want to do. Hope this helps.

    Hey meltaylor

    Start where you need, so if you want to commerce then MarketPress would be a good one, if you want Membership then our Membership would be.

    As Gabe Mentioned, the Dashboard will let you install our plugins and themes with the exception of a few like Multi DB for example which require a manual setup due to their purpose.

    Hey chimpsy

    Always best you start your own thread, jumping on others can lead to confusion or your post possibly being missed by our staff.

    The WPMU DEV Dashboard will log you in with your username and password. If it's showing you as a free member then that must be another account. Often when people sign up here they register and then later come back and use Facebook or Google and because it wasn't synced with your account it creates a new one for you not realising you're already a member.

    Your user name is chimpsy, was that what you logged in on your site from the Dash area?

    Take care.

    Just to manage the support issues more efficiently, I am marking this thread as resolved for now however this is not being done to avoid your questions in any ways.
