Second Anniversary Giveaway. Your chance to win an iPad!

2 years ago, Anastis and I were running like crazy to launch our service. Building WordPress themes, building our website, testing our membership system etc. On September 23rd we launched our website. Everything went fine except one thing. Sales. Sales were slow. We didn’t mind because our initial plan was to keep our daily jobs and mess with the whole cssigniter thing on our spare time. We were totally wrong of course and we learnt that the hard way.

A few months ago we re-launched. And this time i think we got it right. See, today we just hit our first major milestone, our first 1000 happy members (they are way more than that right now) but all these things shouldn’t keep us from celebrating our first day online as a premium WordPress themes provider.

Now it’s time for giveaways!

Follow the instructions for a chance to win:

  • The new iPad (16GB – WiFi Only version)
  • 1 cssigniter.com membership for life

Theme Updates: Troy and Odyssey reach v1.2

Summer is well in and the sun shines (more like burns skin) here in sunny Greece. While everyone is planning on their vacations, CSSIgniter is hard at work to bring you more. No, wait… we actually try to bring you less. Less hassle, less options (but enough to keep you satisfied and do whatever you want to do) and less sweating.

That’s why we’ve released updates for Troy and Oddysey. Two out of our first four original themes got revisited and are now working as any modern (think WordPress v3.4) theme should work. If you are updating, don’t expect anything spectacular. Most changes are made under the hood. You might notice though that Featured Images are available, as well a revamped and more solid panel is at your hands. If you are watching Troy or Odyssey for the first time, just know that what you see and what you expect, is really really what you get.

A changelog for versions 1.1 (shortlived) and 1.2 for each theme is available in our support forum, so any of you existing users is upgrading and have made any customizations in the theme files, make sure to take a look at the changelog. Of course you need to backup your customization, but you already have done that, haven’t you?

Don’t go away just yet… I mean, plan your summer holidays as you’d normally do, but keep in the back of your head that more theme updates are coming.

Penelope is next.
