After some work I can finally say that I have a working system, both with support forums and selling, auto updates, license keys, downloads and everything else. It all works great, which is good news!
I will from now on have much more freedom with making bundles, set sale and discount codes, changing prices and so on.
As you may have noticed, the Gutenberg update, or WordPress 5.0 “Bebo” is now out. All of my themes should work just fine with the update and new editor.
If you have spotted any issue with it, please leave a comment here.
Blogside, before named Blogline (already taken on wp.org), is now available on wordpress.org. Got any support questions or do you want to review the theme? You can now do so for Blogside. You will also receive one-click updates in your WordPress dashboard. If you have any thoughts about this, feel free to leave a comment to this post.
From now on you can download Blogrow from wordpress.org. This means 1-click updates in your WordPress dashboard, a support forum, a review section and more. Any questions? Feel free to leave a comment below.
Slanted can now be downloaded from wordpress.org and will from now on receive one-click updates in your WordPress dashboard. For support question you can now use the support forums. Any other questions? Feel free to leave a comment below.
This time it is Enspire that makes it to wordpress.org! You will now receive updates for this theme in your WordPress dashboard and update it with a single click. This also means that the theme has a dedicated support forums, a reviews section and download chart plus active installations. Got any feedback? Feel free to leave a comment in this post.
Due to the requirements of wordpress.org themes, some features that were in the free themes have now been moved to the companion plugin instead.
From now on the Alx Extensions plugin includes the following:
- The social share links. Can be turned on/off in Customize > Theme Extensions > Social Share
- The upscaling of thumbnail images function. Can be turned on/off in Customize > Theme Extensions > Image Upscale
- Custom sidebars creation. Can be found in Customize > Theme Extensions > Custom Sidebars
- Custom meta boxes for post formats (still requires the Meta Box plugin as well to show the fields)
Another of my free themes is now available on wordpress.org! This time it’s Kontrast and you can download, review or ask for support right here. This means that from now on updates for the theme will appear right in your WordPress dashboard, and be one click away. Now on to the next theme!
After a thorough code review by acosmin, Typecore is now available as theme on wordpress.org! As a result of the code review, all of my 13 themes have now had their code updated to wordpress.org-standard. The 5 remaining free themes will soon hopefully make it to wordpress.org as well – one down, five to go!
From now on, theme updates for Typecore will appear in your WordPress dashboard once available, and be one click away.
Feel free to drop by and leave a theme review here. Or, if you have any support question, the theme now has a dedicated forum section where you can ask about stuff.
I’ve now completed the move of theme options to the WordPress live customizer for all 12 themes. The structure in the live customizer is similar to the one used before, and you access the options under the “Customize > Theme Options” panel. Please read the post prior to this for important information regarding the update.
Happy new year!
