The last few months have been a little quieter around ThemeZee and I would like to give you a brief insight into what we are currently working on and what the future of ThemeZee will look like.
WordPress 5.0 was released on December 6 and is now available for download. This post explains what this means for all users of my themes and plugins.
In the many updates of the last days we have prepared all our themes and plugins for the upcoming Gutenberg editor. All our products are now 100% compatible with Gutenberg. Here is a short overview of the exact changes.
We have just released updates for all of our themes and plugins to improve compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union. Read this post to learn more about the changes introduced with the updates.
2017 is nearly over and I would like to spend a few minutes to review the past year and to take a glimpse at the new year. I’ll also introduce my plans for the next twelve months.
As usual time passes quickly and another year just flew by. Sometimes I still find it hard to believe that it is now 10 years since my first encounter and use of WordPress. I founded ThemeZee in 2010 which means my theme business has its eighth birthday in the summer.
One of the main features of our WordPress Themes is the widgetized Magazine Homepage template and the corresponding Magazine Posts widgets. The included Magazine widgets show posts from a selected category in different layout styles and allow users to create a magazine-styled homepage with just a few clicks.
I’m thrilled to announce that we have released several updates for all our Magazine WordPress themes this week. In addition, all Pro add-ons were updated as well. This short post covers the new features and describes what things have changed.
We have changed all our product prices on themezee.com from USD to EUR. This change was made to simplify things on our end. We are located in Europe and therefore have to keep books in our currency. It was getting increasingly complicated with PayPal payments in USD, because every single transaction had to be converted and recorded in Euro.
When ThemeZee was founded in 2010 the WordPress theme market was much smaller than today and only in its beginnings. It was a fast decision to create our website completely in English to attract a larger audience.
Since then 5 years have passed and WordPress has enlarged its market share rapidly. We think it was time for us to be finally present with a German website in our home country.
Today I would like to introduce you to our newest Magazine WordPress Theme called Merlin. It is our first theme built with the popular Underscores Starter Theme and is most likely one of the best themes we have created so far.
We spent countless hours to hone every detail of this theme and we hope you turn it into your next awesome WordPress website. Let us know in the comments 🙂
We usually try to avoid any significant changes in the design of our themes, because it is not ideal for the existing user base. However, Anderson was not as popular as we wished and our theme with the fewest downloads. It could not cover the cost of development and it was increasingly hard to justify further development and updating the theme.
