I’ve been working on a new blog theme this week ( preview here ) for Themefurnace, I will also be releasing a free version. Had last month off from creating themes so it’s good to be back – I have built a new simpler framewrok for my themes which does away with an options panel and uses the Theme Customizer.
The other week I opened up the WPLift directory for user-submissions at a cost of just $49 for a permanent listing, this has seen a good response with some great plugins and themes being added, so check it out if you would like to promote a theme or plugin to our audience.
I have been enjoying the ManageWP.org site which launched the other week, check it out – it’s a user-submitted content site all about WordPress which has been sending some good traffic for WPLift.
This is our (sort of ) weekly WordPress news roundup post, you can view previous news roundups on this tag. I also post frequent WordPress links on Twitter all week, follow WPLIft here if you are on Twitter. Our facebook page is growing nicely with over 2500 members now so please “Like” us on Facebook. Finally, I’m also on Pinterest so you can add me there as well.
