Hi everyone, this is an announcement I wanted to write a long time ago but never managed to publish it since circumstances always kept changing. With this post I’ll explain what the future of ThemesDepot will be.
2 years ago, I needed to change something in my life and decided to join a company as a WordPress developer, full time. Working fulltime meant I wasn’t going to have time to take care of ThemesDepot and it’s products so I had to sell it.
I tried to look for a buyer for ThemesDepot, I got some offers but ultimately the sale never went through for a variety of reasons. This led to support not being taken care of ( or very little support during the small amount of free time I had ) and lack of updates even though the products are still compatible with the latest version of WordPress.
During these 2 years a lot of things changed in my life and I’m now again in need of flexible remote work. Last friday was my last day as a fulltime developer for the company I used to work for.
Inspired by the upcoming changes in WordPress ( like Gutenberg ) and also forced by the circumstances in my private life, I decided to get back to ThemesDepot.
I would like to apologize to all my customers who have not received support. If you have submitted a refund request on ThemeForest, it will be processed shortly. I will begin answering all currently open support requests starting from today.
Current products and future products
Support for current products will continue as normal until further notice.
Updates for current products will only be released in the event there’s a compatibility issue with WordPress or bug fixes. No new features will be released for current products while features will be moved into plugins.
Functionalities from themes to plugins
Throughout the years while developing themes for ThemesDepot, I started moving functionalities from themes into plugins, and this is when WP User Manager was born. WPUM is another product that was kind of abandoned. WPUM will be refactored, new features and add-ons will be released to improve the quality of the product.
Another major plugin will be developed too. More news on this later 😉
That’s all for now…
Once again I would like to apologize for my unavailability during this time but I’m excited to be back.
Stay tuned, I’ll be sharing more about some products under development very soon.
