Funny how time creeps up on you.
It wasn’t until I was preparing my presentation for this year’s upcoming WordCamp SLC that I realized that it was this time last year that we launched Museum Themes!
In our first year, we have released 14 WordPress themes (7 free themes and 7 Museum Themes), one display font and updated all of our Blogger templates. This coming year will see a new, free, GPL core framework, and some massive updates to the themes to accommodate the shift in technology. We’re also planning a few more niche themes based on some of the feedback we’ve received over the last year. We’ve switched our checkout process from being based on WP eCommerce to Cart66, we’ve added and then upgraded our affiliate program, and we’ve switched our support forums to use Get Satisfaction.
It’s been a good year, and we’re just getting started. Besides the core framework, plans for the coming year include releasing a few more plugins and making sure all of our code adheres to WordPress coding standards. Things that we have been playing with and are excited about bringing to the next generation of Museum Themes are custom post types and post formats as well as updating our theme options pages to be based in the WordPress Settings API.
We hope that you continue to follow our development and support us as we continue to grow. As always, our goal is to make beautiful WordPress themes that are functional, artistic, easy-to-use and entirely GPL-compliant. And if you haven’t already, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date on everything we’re doing.
