Zelda Released, Zenith Retired

Zenith is the best selling theme on DevPress, so it may seem like an odd move to retire it. However, we’re introducing a new theme today called Zelda designed to take its place.

Everyone who has an active license for Zenith now has access to Zelda if you’d like to switch. You can also choose to stay with Zenith if you’re happy with it (DevPress will continue support for a year and release updates as needed). Continue reading

New: Boast Theme

The fourth theme to be released in last three weeks on DevPress, Boast is a photo blog theme, but designed using a magazine style layout. It features a sleek, dark design with logo uploader, custom menu, custom background, custom post stylesheet, custom post template, and sidebar toggle to display widgets at the bottom. Go to theme’s home page for download link.

p.s. – It’s also the first theme to use David Chandra’s Auto Hosted script for auto notifications/updates. If successful, the update script will eventually get added to all products on DevPress for easier updates.

New: Tourmaline WordPress Theme

Tourmaline is the third theme to be released within the last two weeks on DevPress (patting myself on the back). Inspired by and very much based on AlistairLane.com.

Tourmaline is a four-column theme made for personal photo-blogging. It features a cool gray-scale home page showing colored photos only when you hover on top of each photo.

It’s also the first theme to be made entirely in the browser by me, skipping Photoshop, Fireworks, or what have you. I’m a visual learner, meaning I work and learn better than I have something to look at. Designing in the browser is a very abstract task so I’m trying to get used to it by tackling a simple layout first and using AlistairLane as my base. I hope you like it and more themes are coming soon!
