After the launch of the theme club back in September 2012 and offering PRO themes and top-notch theme support ThemeZee has gained over 2.000 paying theme club members so far. Although the theme club model has worked quite well and ThemeZee has become a healthy business, there were several downsides of the existing subscription model.

So far I’m quite happy how the theme club has developed over the past year. I have learned a lot about operating an own online business and have greatly improved my theme development and WordPress skills. It is awesome to see how you are using and customizing my WordPress themes and how many website are powered by them.
This is just a short heads-up for all members which use the twitter widget of the PRO versions of my themes.
The custom twitter widget fetches the data with JSON from twitter using API 1.0. Since Twitter retires the version 1.0 of the API in March 2013, the custom twitter widget won’t work anymore. Read full article »
… and a happy new year.
The year 2012 was a great one for the ThemeZee business. Started as a free wordpress theme provider back in 2010 and with the breakthrough in 2011, this year I mainly worked on the new Premium Themes and the ThemeZee Theme Club with the attached support forum.
