New Responsive WooCommerce theme Sooperstore released

04 September 2012 comment icon0 | Categories: commercial themes, featured, theme news

Ok it’s pretty embarrassing how long it’s been since I posted a blog update here. My last update was early July saying that a new theme was on the way “within a week” if I recall correctly. Well fast forward a week or 8 and I’m happy to announce that Sooperstore has finally been released!
We actually released another theme in the interim which I’ll come back to you another time. Right now I’m excited to share details of Sooperstore.
What’s the skinny on Sooperstore?

It’s a WooCommerce theme. What’s WooCommerce? Only one of the best WordPress ecommerce plugins on the planet (along with it’s distant relative Jigoshop).
It’s responsive. A lot of time has been spent tuning the hell out …

5 Stunning Responsive WordPress themes

17 April 2012 comment icon1 | Categories: commercial themes, featured

While responsive web design is a relatively new phenomenon, the WordPress theme development ecosystem has exploded with a plethora of stunning responsive WordPress themes over the past few months. It’s one of the things that I really love about the WordPress community – the speed at which theme developers themselves are so responsive 🙂 I’ve been doing a lot of work on my own responsive WordPress themes lately and have personally looked under the hood of many of the themes listed here. I can tell you that pretty much any of these themes are coded to an excellent standard and would serve as an excellent basis for your own websites. Rather than give you a …

So it looks like the WordPress Commercial Theme landscape is about to get a BIG shakeup.
Orman Clark is one of the most popular and successful WordPress theme developers of all time. He’s generally regarded as one of the nicest gents you could possibly meet in the WordPress community. It’s no accident that Ormans combination of world class theme design and all round likeability and excellent support has seen him sky rocket to towards the top of the themeforest Top Authors list in an insanely short amount of time.
As someone who works with WordPress themes daily, Ormans themes have always been a dream to work with. When I first started building my own themes I didn’t …

In like a lion

28 March 2012 comment icon0 | Categories: commercial themes, theme news

There’s an old weather expression about March
In like a lion….out like a lamb
Well whatever about the weather, from a workload perspective March definitely came in like a lion and it’s pretty much going out like a lion too! The good news is that the cloning project is going well and I should have three of myself to pick up the slack any day now 🙂 There’s lot bubbling underneath the surface at themesforge these days – much to the detriment of the blog unfortunately. Early in the month I finally got Part 5 of the High Performance WordPress series which brought that series to a conclusion but the rest of the month has been a bit …

Rooling: a new Commercial WordPress theme for law firms

10 October 2011 comment icon0 | Categories: commercial themes, featured, theme news

So this one has been a while coming. Today I shipped Rooling – a new commercial WordPress theme designed specifically for lawyers, law firms, attorneys, Lionel Hutz wannabes – you get the idea. I’ve spent the past few months building a pretty decent framework for my own custom WordPress themes. Nothing groundbreaking really, just pulling together lots of little code snippets from around the WordPress ecosystem. I’ve got it to a point that I’m very happy with the mechanics of how I put together themes and ensuring the code quality is on a par with the most well known theme shops out there. I intend following up with some further posts in the coming days …
