Back in the Directory blog post published a few weeks ago we mentioned that the theme itself is just the beginning. Using add-ons you’ll be able to extend the functionality of your directory even further. Today I’ll be talking about two of them, Events Manager add-on and Ad Manager. Expect to learn more about other add-ons as well within the next few days.
Tevolution – Events Manager
Once installed, the plugin will enable a new post type (events) and a bunch of new features within the Directory theme. The most important of these are recurring events. With the plugin both you (the admin) and regular visitors will be able to add events that reoccur on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis.
The Events Manager add-on will seamlessly integrate events in almost all areas of the theme. You’ll be able to display them on the map, on category pages and on the homepage (main listing area). The category pages will feature three distinctive tabs: Current, Upcoming and Past. Just like in listing category pages, AJAX based view switchers (grid, list and map) will be available for events as well. Read More »
One of the things we get asked a lot ever since Directory released is just how it compares to GeoPlaces. Using this blog post I’ll do my best to outline the differences between Directory and GeoPlaces themes. Instead of comparing them feature-by-feature I’ve devised several key areas in which these themes differ. Also, at the end of the post you’ll find a quick summary of each theme’s strengths.
One of the cool features of our recently released Directory theme is the ability to set custom markers/icons for each category. These custom markers will be applied to the homepage map, but also the category and detail page maps. Btw, you’re allowed to use this with other themes as well, including GeoPlaces. Read More »
With the release of Directory we decided it was time to lay out a roadmap for the future of our Club membership. Many of these changes actually affect only new Club members, but more about that below.
Club pricing changes
The monthly fee has been increased to $19 for all new members. The starting fee however will stay the same at $299. Considering developer packages can go as high as $199 we are confident that Club membership is more than worth despite the price increase. After all, you’re getting the developer package for all 50+ themes.
What about existing members?
The above price change does not affect existing members with an active license. In case you Read More »
A little over a week ago we released Directory, the biggest theme in our long (for Internet standards) 5 year history. Inside the release blog post we mentioned a discount for existing GeoPlaces owners. Want to know more about it? Read on…
A number of features implemented into Directory were actually inspired by your suggestions for GeoPlaces so we decided it would be fair to provide a discount for all of you who want to move over to the new theme. The discount is basically 40% off Directory. With the discount the standard license is available for just $60! Read More »

ShowStopper is our latest responsive multi purpose theme designed to help you showcase your company, product or service. Because of the included “Portfolio” post type, ShowStopper is also great for designers and photographers; basically anyone trying to showcase their work. The theme is pretty similar to recently released Landing Page, but comes with a different look and a few other changes.
Landing Page is a flat design WordPress theme… a first for us at Templatic. It’s a multi purpose theme with a responsive design meaning it’s bound to look good on any device. We believe it’s just the type of theme we were missing so far, hopefully you guys will feel the same. Even though the theme seems fairly simple at first glance, there is actually more to it than it meets the eye. So, let’s get started.
Support is extremely important to us here at Templatic. So important in fact that almost 50% of all of us at Templatic work on helping you get the most out of the purchased product. With that in mind, have you ever wondered exactly how is theme support provided? If yes, this blog post is for you.
In the next few paragraphs I’ll outline the tools and techniques I myself and most of us at Templatic use to help you guys. Hopefully some of tips shared here will help you while troubleshooting issues in the future.
My approach (to a problem not reported before)
Checking the theme and WordPress version – when you encounter a problem and notice that the WordPress/theme version you’re using isn’t exactly new, update. Even if it doesn’t Read More »
Specialist v1 was a relatively simple WordPress business theme known for it’s serious and professional design. Well, the new version looks pretty much the same but comes with A LOT more capabilities. The most requested one was making the theme responsive. I’m happy to confirm that Specialist v2 is completely mobile-friendly! The responsiveness is just the beginning; Specialist v2 is based on the second generation of Supreme – our core framework and the muscle behind recent themes such as OnePager or 5Star.
