The Word Bay


Please note that these instructions are still quite basic, until I see what kinds of difficulties people may be having and can address them. However, there should be more than enough to get you going here!

These are the docs/user manual for the Wordbay plugin and for the site. I try to keep these as up-to-date as possible, but please let me know if there is anything that doesn’t make sense or is obviously out-of-date.

If you want to get stuck in as soon as possible then head over to the Quick Start Guide which should get you up and running in no time. Here are some additional instructions for site members, too:

Downloading the plugin

You can always download the latest version of the plugin from your members profile page – log in using your email and the password you should have received by mail. If you didn’t get them, try using the Forgot password link on the login page, and failing that shout “help” using the Contact form.

You can also get the latest version from the Download page provided you are logged in.

Help with installing

Consult the Quick Start Guide first off. Read the rest of the docs carefully, including the Troubleshooting section as some common issues are resolved there. You will find a copy of this quick summary page there too.

Using the forum

To be able to use the forum you need to specify a username on your members profile page. There is no separate login for the forum, when you are logged into the site you are also logged into the forum.

The forum is used:

  • if you get stuck – please consider posting your question to the help forum before hitting the Contact form. You will get an answer just as quickly and others will benefit from the reply and it lightens the load for the author, who then doesn’t have to repeatedly answer similar questions via email and will be very grateful!
  • if you want to learn – the forum is also there for members to chat about EPN and in general about making money online. Some parts of the forum are not publicly visible, so we can share tips with other users that we might not otherwise reveal!

I think that’s it!


Look out for occasional updates via the newsletter – sometimes these will contain warnings about urgent changes you need to make to your sites, or to upgrade the plugin! Also, I (very occasionally) let you know about new articles on the site. For example, you might want to check this one out: EPN accounts – how to get one, if getting into EPN is still an issue for you.
