My CMS Commander Review
CMS Commander is a hosted service to manage multiple WordPress sites. It allows you to add any number of websites to manage them from a single dashboard. That will save you a lot of time you would spend on your day to day WP management tasks by automating them or processing them in bulk. The service was launched in 2012 after a long beta phase. It is currently used by its members to manage over 20,000 WordPress weblogs according to its developers.
A look at the CMS Commander dashboard from where you can manage all your WordPress blogs together.
There is a core set of features that is part of all WP management services compared here: They all let you add all your website to a single account, update plugins and themes easily, quickly login to your sites and create backups. What is different is how they implement those basic features in their interface and how easy to use their management dashboard (pictured above for CMS Commander) is.
Besides the basics mentioned above CMS Commander does focus on providing bulk actions that allow users to perform tasks on any number of websites simultaneously to save time. CMS Commander for example includes the feature to bulk create any number of new WordPress user accounts on multiple weblogs and to edit or copy WordPress settings to a whole network of blogs.
CMS Commander is also the only management service to integrate with 20+ third party API services. Those can be used to generate automatic content as well as for article spinning from inside the CMS Commander dashboard. The integrated partners include Amazon, Youtube, Google and many other big internet companies. Members can use the content returned by these partners to enhance their posts with related images, videos, affiliate ads or other content completely free and legal.
CMS Commander is a very solid service for managing multiple WordPress blogs that is competetively priced: While offering a large amount of features, including several unique ones like automatic content and rewriting integration, it costs less than most of the alternatives.
CMS Commander offers a free account with limited features that includes a 30 day trial to all premium features. The price of a subscription to all premium features is based on the number of websites you want to manage remotely, starting at $8 for 5 websites. You can pay monthly or yearly at a discount and many different payment options are accepted, including Paypal and all major credit cards.
