Simpler Plans, Redesigns and Yearly Support

Written by Alex Denning on 3 comments

Since the release of our latest theme, PhotoFrame, we’ve been extremely busy behind the scenes at WPZOOM. We’ve been tweaking, simplifying and redesigning, which means we’ve got a bunch of news to share with you. Let’s get straight to it.


Simplified WPZOOM Membership options

First up, we’re pleased to announce we’ve simplified our subscription options, and merged our “Standard” and “Developer” membership options into one single WPZOOM Membership plan. The single membership plan includes unlimited access to all our themes, Photoshop files, support and updates whilst the membership is active.

Current customers will keep the membership plans they signed up for for as long as they are active, but new customers can purchase a WPZOOM Membership for $19/month, with a one-time $199 startup fee. That works out at around $4.50/theme, which is crazy good value.

Case Study: FeelGood

Written by Alex Denning on 1 comment

One of the most rewarding things about building premium WordPress themes is seeing them used on real websites for real people and real businesses. With thousands of customers, we’re privileged to see our themes used on a hugely diverse set of websites and in some unique and innovative use-cases.

Our showcase is great for showing off some of the real-world uses of WPZOOM themes and the great customisations which have been done to those sites, but we wanted to go a little bit further and talk to some of the people who have customised WPZOOM themes for their businesses to really showcase what can be done with WPZOOM’s themes.

Ending hunger in a lifetime

FeelGood is a US-based volunteer youth movement committed to ending global hunger in their lifetime. Through their FeelGood Grilled Cheese Delis on college campuses, FeelGood raises money (over $1 million!) which is invested in organisations with a track record of success in tackling hunger.

WordPress 3.6 is available! All WPZOOM themes are immediately compatible

Written by Alex Denning on 4 comments

The long awaited release of WordPress 3.6 is here! “Oscar” (named after the great jazz pianist, Oscar Peterson) is available for download now, and even better — your WPZOOM theme is compatible immediately (provided your theme is also up-to-date).

36vers

We covered what to actually expect in WordPress 3.6 here on our blog back in June, so check out that post for an in-depth look at what’s new. The new release’s new features are summarised below:

  • Vastly improved autosaving.
  • Improved handling of multi-author posts through “post locking”.
  • More intuitive comparison of post revisions.
  • Much cleaner custom menu creation.
  • Improved handling of video and audio embeds.

The WordPress.org folks have put together a short video showing off some of the new features:

If your WPZOOM theme isn’t up-to-date, or you’re not sure if you need to upgrade, we have a tutorial in our Support Center which will guide you through that process, step by step. You can see when your theme was last updated here.

When you’re ready to upgrade WordPress, upgrading is as simple as following through the prompts on your WordPress Dashboard. It should only take a minute, and then you’ll be enjoying all of the great new features — and you’ll be making sure your site is secure, too.
