Web Designer Magazine - Issue 155

Web Designer Magazine - Issue 155

That’s right Issue 155 of Web Designer Magazine features us yet again, but this time we have a more prominent feature with a full page dedicated to a Q & A with Adii and a look at the WooThemes headquarters in Cape Town, South Africa.

Issue 155 focuses on WordPress’s impressive and biggest upgrade to date - version 2.7. The magazine features explanations of this version’s highlights, the dashboard editor explained and designer tips and opinions.

We’ve teamed up with Web Designer Magazine and launched three of our popular WooTheme wordpress templates for free on their promotional CD.

That’s about £200’s worth of WooThemes goodness!

Which themes are available on the CD you may ask?

One from each of us. Adii’s Geometric business/portfolio theme, Magnus’s Freshfolio portfolio theme and my magazine theme – Foreword Thinking.

Head on over to your local UK newspaper shop to get your copy or buy this issue online.

4-for-1 Christmas special extended

December 24, 2008 in Promotions. 25 Comments

Today is supposed to be the last day of our Christmas 4-for-1 special , meaning all your Christmas shopping is supposed to be finished.

Fail Blog Special Offer

However, if like me you still haven’t got everything you said you would and you’re now already celebrating this merry time of year we’ve decided to throw you a life line and extend our 4-for-1 special till the end of 2008 , that gives you one more week to take advantage of this fantastic offer!

We thought about changing the offer slightly, and coming up with a clever new catch phrase, but why mess with a winning formula, especially if all you can come up with is this one we found on fail blog .

Happy shopping Woo Users and have a fantastic Christmas!

P.S. See all the special details on the original 4-for-1 offer post here .

P.P.S. This offer will definitely be ending when the clock strikes 12am (GMT) on New Years Eve 2008 . No more extensions.

The 4-for-1 Special

December 16, 2008 in Promotions. 62 Comments

Ho Ho Ho! Santa has arrived a week early here at WooThemes headquarters, bearing lots of gifts and instructing us to dish them out to you in the form of a 4 for 1 special for all our WooTheme visitors!

We’ve run a 3 for 1 special in the past as our Halloween special, but nothing as daring as this. 4 wonderful WooThemes for the price of 1 !

Santa has assured us this is a sensible business move and will help make a lot of people’s Christmas even more merry!

This offer applies to both Single & Developer Licenses, which means you get the following:

  • Buy a Single License for $70 USD and get any 3 other themes (on Single Licenses) of your choice; or
  • Buy a Developer License for $150 USD and get any 3 other themes (on Developer Licenses) of your choice.

For the single license special, each of the 4 themes comes with an individual license, so you can use the themes on 4 different websites.

HOW IT WORKS

As with everything in life, there’s some “rules” with regards to the special… :) Here they are:

  1. The special is only valid from 17 December (midnight GMT ) until the end of 24 December 2008 (midnight GMT) the clock strikes 12am on New Years Eve 2008 (we extended the special ) as specified above. No previous purchases will be eligible for this. If you miss the deadline, you will not be able to make use of this special.

To take advantage of this fantastic Christmas present simply select to purchase your favourite theme, for example, our latest theme offering, Abstract (which we collaborated with Veerle Pieters on will be launched with the start of this 4 for 1 promotion – details to follow).

Hot off the press

September 29, 2008 in Team news. 19 Comments

Hot off the press and in most UK newspaper/stationery stores is Issue 149 of Web Designer , the only serious tutorial-driven monthly publication dedicated to online creativity available in the UK .

Issue 149 focusses on the wonderful WordPress , giving you history and tips behind Web 2.0’s blogging behemoth.

We were approached by Web Designer last month and asked if we would contribute any of our WooThemes for this issue’s accompanying CD. After a brief chat Adii, Magnus and myself decided it would be silly to pass on the opportunity of marketing WooThemes to the huge following of this great magazine. After careful consideration we decided we would offer both Papercut and Proudfolio . That’s right two of our premium themes are avaliable for free with Issue 149 of Web Designer. Also in this issue is a step-by-step detailed tutorial on how to develop your own WordPress theme, albeit quite a basic one.
