Vantage 1.0.1 is Near

Zen Tyler is HereNote: With Vantage 1.0.1 release coming in the next week or two, I’ve asked one of our developers – Tyler Carter – to write a blog post about it. Cheers ~ Shannon.

Sitting here in my nice comfortable office chair, behind two screens, looking at a terminal filled with teh codes, I’m excited about what we have coming up in the next few weeks. Vantage, our latest creation, is now getting stronger, faster, and overall more awesome.

Some of you may not know me. My name is Tyler Carter, and I program. I program in coffee shops, in churches, in people’s backyards. Sometimes I program on top of a nearby mountain with nothing but the tunes from my iPod and a soda (indeed, I am a blue dot on the Great Debate of the Universe). And yes, I would program on a plane, and I would program on a train. And in a car, and in the rain, and … well now this is just getting silly.

Vantage Introduces the New AppThemes Custom Form Builder

Our new custom form builder is going to make your life easier! Do you need more than basic contact info for a business listing? Is your business directory in a niche market that requires unique data? Well, get it done with the new custom form builder.

With push-button simplicity, the new custom form builder makes it a snap to add custom data to your theme. The form builder allows you to create custom fields that will show up on the Vantage “Create a listing” form. After your customer enters data into the custom fields, it shows up on their listing. Simple as that.

We created a short video tutorial to show you how to get the most out of the new custom form builder for your site. Check it out below.

Video: Creating a Listing in Vantage

Quite a few people have asked us about the checkout process after an end-user creates a listing in Vantage. It’s not possible to see this with the demo, so we thought it would helpful to create a video.
