Today is a very exciting day! The brand new AppThemes Marketplace is officially open and ready for business. This online outlet of child themes and plugins is full of products meant to tap into the full potential of our already powerful application themes. Now’s your chance to blow away the barriers holding back your internet business. Get bigger features. Choose more designs. Make your site everything you always wanted it to be.
Dazzling Child Themes
Our application themes are made to look great and the default designs deliver attractive layouts. The only problem is that hundreds of other sites have exactly the same look. You want something unique but hiring a designer can be costly and beyond budget constraints. Well forget all that because the AppThemes Marketplace is chock full of child themes that will bring your site to life. Colorful and attractive, the latest designs and the hippest graphics are available to you. You’re site is going to look fantastic and stand out above the rest.
With the upcoming release of the AppThemes marketplace and the introduction of our framework and payments API, we’re going to focus a little more on creating tutorials for developers.
Whether you want to create a plugin for purchase by other AppThemes customers or you just want to super-charge your AppThemes enabled site, these tutorials will be just what you’re looking for. In fact, we think that code junkies will be so jazzed about these developer-focused tutorials, that we created a special section on our docs site. The list is small now, but we’ll adding more every week. Check back regularly.
So this week’s Tutorial Tuesday will focus on a trio of tutorials about developing gateways for the AppThemes payments API. Payments is already in Vantage and we’re migrating it to ClassiPress and Clipper at this very moment. Soon, it will be available in JobRoller, too. Once all the themes have the payments API, one gateway plugin should work in all themes. Imagine your gateway plugin working in Vantage, Clipper, ClassiPress and JobRoller. Wow!
Ahhh! The sound of a productive team is wonderful to the ears. The AppThemes lead team is making great progress on Vantage. Andrzej is doing fantastic work on ClassiPress 3.2. And we’re finalizing designs for the release of our ideas theme.
The lead developers are getting so much work done on Vantage that it’s time for management to start thinking about our next theme. That begs the question, “What should be next for AppThemes?”
Your Chance to Decide
Who better to put this question to than you? That’s right, our loyal customers and supportive community members. This is your chance to tell us what you want next. What theme have you been longing to have?
We checked out our ideas exchange to come up with the most popular theme ideas. Read the short summaries and then vote in the poll below. If you don’t see the theme you want, why not tell us about it in the comments.
With the release of Vantage coming soon, our new theme framework is mostly done. All our themes will now have the same code for similar features and functions – including payment processing. In addition, all payment gateways will be created as plugins. This allows us to create a single gateway plugin that can be used in ClassiPress, JobRoller, Clipper and Vantage.
We wanted to know what gateways you are interested in having the most. We have seen suggestions in the forums and on the ideas exchange but thought a poll would be a great way to measure the demand for this.
