New Updates/Downloads System

Posted by Updated on

This is an exclusive guest post by , posted on November 16th, 2010.

We’ve set up a new system for downloading DiW updates. It’s designed to make the upgrade process easier for everyone. Here’s how it works:

  1. Go to https://digwp.com/wp-login.php
  2. Use your purchase email address to reset your password
  3. After logging in with your new password, you’ll be redirected to the downloads page
  4. Download your update!

Once you get your password, feel free to login whenever and update the PDF or any of our exclusive themes. If you run into anything weird during the process, or need a quick reminder of your purchase email address, contact us and we’ll do our best to help you out.

Please note that as of today the current version of the book is still at 3.0 – this is a system update only, not a book update. So if you have version 3.0 (with the black cover), you’ve got the latest version.

    nope..no good….can’t login ! I received the download link but did NOT have a link to signup…it said that I was already signed up…so I guess I need a new password!

    Looks like something is preventing users from using their emails to recover lost passwords. Until this is resolved, try using your auto-generated username, which is your first and last names combined (without any spaces or special characters).

    If that doesn’t work, contact us and we’ll send a new password.

    Update: The issue was with carriage-return and newline characters that were created during the import process. They’ve been removed, so everything should be working now. Thanks for your patience as we break in the new system :)

      Same as Tom.

      Purchased 5th August 2010. If I try to login with my purchase email address, I get asked for a password, then I get booted.

      I have never received a password for DIW upon purchase or subsequently. Please advise guys.

        Adrian, you should also be receiving an email. Please use it to reset your password. That should get you into the downloads area. Thank you.

    Nicely done. The site looks great.

  7. Reset form just shakes, which I think is a sign that email not recognized?..

    Friend bought me a book back then so it didn’t go through generic sale process, maybe that is the reason.

    Same email I used for this comment.

    Maybe you could list the date the file was updated so we know whether or not we have the most recent file.

  9. Walter Hawn November 17, 2010

    Would a changelog be possible? for those of us who like paper. so we can swap out the old and bring in the new? And not print out the whole ting again?

    It’d be vurra kule.

  10. cannot figure out what to do to get any updates, what do I enter for login and password?


    p.s. my invoice id is [removed]

  11. sorry anbout the email address, seems that an ‘O’ was added to the end
