Open Transparency with ThemeSnap.com Products & Licensing

In an ongoing effort to be as open and transparent as possible, we'd like to share some information for ThemeSnap.com products, theme licensing usage, and also provide the opportunity to answer any questions customers or other third-party providers might have moving forward regarding licensing terms.

We received an email today just after noticing a few, not so happynegativeTwitter posts concerning ThemeSnap.com about the usage of a Drupal theme we sell. The email basically advised us to remove the theme from our website because selling it did not include the author's permission. The theme in question is one that we purchased directly from ThemeForest.net. We purchased it under their "Extended license" terms and we've always been certain that we've had the correct license in order to provide the theme directly for sale.

ThemeSnap.com Update for December & January

I can't believe it's 10 days till Christmas! This year flew by and I think we made some good progress with new themes being added, improving support, and forging ahead with new ideas and theme enhancements.

With that being said, I'd like to announce some upcoming improvements and new themes as it relates to our theme development. I also wanted to share a little about our direction for ThemeSnap.com in general. Some of these changes are major ones, but I believe change is good, especially when you're talking about improving products and services. Here's a few of those listed below.

ThemeSnap.com Moving to a New Server

I just wanted to inform everyone that we are moving ThemeSnap.com to a new server today. You may experience some bumps as the DNS propagates over the next 24-48 hours -- although most people will get the new location within 8-12 hours.

If you experience any issues, an email bounces, or you notice something you posted to the website is missing since Friday (forum post, comment to a blog post, etc.), you may need to re-post or re-send. Sorry about any inconvenience.

We were outgrowing our previous hosting solution and feel this new server will give us even more room to grow in the coming months. The previous host was also experiencing ddos attacks every few weeks. Those can get pretty nasty if not dealt with quickly or with some redundancy. We hope to be more stable and uptime more dependable at our new home.

Feel free to also comment below if you experience any issues with the move that may've been missed.

Thanks!

ThemeSnap.com Update for Sept & Oct 2011

Hello all! I just wanted to update everyone on the upcoming theme additions and note a few of the enhancements for several of the premium themes we already sell.

A Complete Drupal Video Theme - GoVideo

Update 10/5/2011: We have updated the GoVideo theme with the new Drupal video module version 2.x. We have also included the Drupal video embed field module (http://drupal.org/project/video_embed_field) to allow you to embed videos from YouTube and Vimeo, as so many people have asked for in the recent weeks.

Update 1/2/2012: We have added a video import module to the GoVideo Drupal theme. This module, once activated, allows you to upload as many videos using FTP. The uploaded videos will use the same node title as the file name. After you upload a batch of videos, you can edit the category, description, or further enhance the video title if needed. 

Shoppica - Premium Drupal 7 Ubercart Theme Released!

Shoppica Ubercart 7 Premium ThemeWe'd like to announce a new addition - The Drupal 7 Shoppica theme

We just completed the Shoppica Drupal 7 theme that integrates Ubercart, the most popular open source commerce modules for Drupal. The Shoppica theme allows for infinite color schemes. You can likerally change every aspect of this theme's colors - with added background textures and several default colors included.

The Shoppica theme also comes with front page and category sliders, custom Twitter and Facebook integration, jQuery product previews with thumbnails, and tons of other options.

This theme is for Drupal 7 and comes with the installation profile which allows for easy installation on a new MySQL database and new Drupal installation. Download it today and have one of the most professional Drupal 7 Ubercart themes on the market.

40% Reduced Prices on all ThemeSnap Themes

We have just made the decision to reduce the prices of our themes by 40% -- from $99 to $59! Why would we do such a thing? Glad you asked... :) We are starting to realize that the time and effort required to make ThemeSnap.com the leader in the Drupal themes market means making our prices more competitive.

We are also looking at porting over many of our current Drupal 6 themes to Drupal 7 -- like the new Unite Business theme for Drupal 7 we just finished!. We can see that this endeavor will require a lot more time and effort to make the Drupal 7 versions as stable as possible. WIth that being said, there are still modules we have included within our Drupal 6 themes that are not yet built for Drupal 7. We'll be posting more in our blog as we work through the migration of each theme and while looking at these modules built by third-party developers.

Ultimately, our goal is to provide lower theme pricing so that we can support and fund our ongoing theme development for our existing themes. We are also working on several new ideas for more advanced themes (and solutions) for different markets or niches along with some ThemeSnap.com website changes in the coming months.

Unite Business Theme Updated to Drupal 7 and 50% Off

Unite Drupal 7 Premium ThemeWe are happy to announce the newly developed Drupal 7 Unite Business theme

For a limited time you can purchase the Drupal 7 Unite theme for only $49! We have not set an end date on the sale, but don't miss out because it won't be on sale for long.

We have been working through our list of themes and have started the upgrade process to Drupal 7 on several others. We are still working through certain themes that use modules not upgraded to Drupal 7 yet, or those which only have upgraded Drupal 7 modules that are still in Beta or Dev status. We will keep a close eye on the module maintainer's updates to these modules used  within some of our themes. Depending on the status of the modules within the upcoming weeks, we will determine how we want to proceed with Drupal 7 updates for those particular themes.
