It’s been a few months since we last launched an eCommerce theme. Today we are happy to announce yet another WordPress theme built on top of our eCommerce framework. The theme is designed for showcasing and selling digital goods – DigitalBox.
DigitalBox theme is all you need to setup a trendy online retail shop within minutes. The beauty of this theme lies in its professional design and easy customizability. Not to mention the robustness and flexibility offered by our eCommerce framework that powers the theme. Apart from being visually appealing, DigitalBox follows the standard rules of an eCommerce site while still providing decent inviting look. Not only your visitors will love your site, but even search engines like Google. That’s because we have incorporated the best SEO techniques into DigitalBox. Simply install the theme, add your products, their pictures, some description and you are all set! The neat grid layout on the homepage is intuitive and easy to draw your visitors to the product page and finally to the checkout. For quick check-out, the bar is provided to the top-right.
DigitalBox theme has many customization settings so you can easily mod it to your taste. Although we’ve made this one for digital products, you can use it for other goods too. We’re sure that DigitalBox eCommerce WordPress theme is all you need to create your own eCommerce site you always wanted! Check out the live demo of the DigitalBox theme and of course, you can try it free for 14 days.

Just like the past couple of years, that special time of year has come when we are going to take a little break. Starting with Wednesday, October 26th most of us at Templatic are going on a small vacation. We’ll be back until Monday, October 31st at the latest.
We will be celebrating Diwali, an important holiday here in India. We’d like to take this opportunity and wish Happy Diwali to all of you who celebrate it.
When it comes to theme support, remaining Templatic staff will try to handle as much tickets/forum threads as possible. Try to go easy on them :)
Billing and coding issues will take the biggest hit during that time since all of them are handled by the staff in India. We would like to ask for your patience during those days. Wishing everyone a joyous and prosperous days ahead. Happy Diwali!
When planning a vacation at a popular place, people are often bothered by unavailability of hotels, lack of decent rooms & proper services, etc. So they’ve started opting for houses on rent. If you have a residential property, preferably near a tourist spot, you can offer it on lease to tourists and generate a decent passive income. This WordPress theme is for property owners like you to showcase your vacation home, attract potential customers online and offer it on rent. Say hello to Vacation Rental theme!
With this theme, you can display photographs of your apartment/villa along with customizable descriptions, amenities, location on a geo-map and directions. Potential tourists can book your property for the price you specify in the back-end. An entry is done in a calendar to avoid further bookings on same dates and payments are handled by various gateways like PayPal, Authorize.net, 2CO and Pre Bank Transfer. Yes, there is a Pay at arrival option too.
The design of the theme is attractive and responsive (so that it displays fine across all devices). Though you can list only one property at a time, it’s strategic design will give you great ROI. What’s more? It has a beautiful blog section where you can get personal with your readers and potential customers. You can check out the demo of the Vacation Rental WordPress theme and test it free for 14 days.

It’s been a while since you heard from us regarding upcoming themes. The themes that have been previewed earlier have all been released, about time we preview some of the upcoming stuff here at Templatic.
Vacation Home Rental is a theme targeted towards helping you create a quick, professional website for your vacation home. This is not a giant portal but instead, a theme built specifically for the home owner.
The theme will let you list your vacation home or property with all the nifty features you would expect in such a site. However, we are not 100% sure whether we should include the booking module into this one like our earlier Hotel Booking theme? Please comment in here and let us know.
You all know we recently released a professional e-Commerce theme called StoreBox. However, possibilities in this niche are endless and here’s the two more themes that we are working on (pictured above and below this text). We decided to cover both angles with these two, as you can see one of them features light, straightforward design while the other is very rich with content, much like StoreBox.
Other than these three themes, there are some other niche specific themes we are working on but preview of them is coming up later.

Considering heaps of mobile and tablet devices sprouting up all over the place, there is no denial that the Responsive web design is the way to go. Sketching such a layout takes a lot of brainstorming and involves strategic analysis of ‘what-goes-where’ when the view-port changes, however, the end result is always fascinating and in favor of the user. The trend has subtly entered into WordPress too and we are keen on adopting it as early as possible. So, yes, here it is – Responsive WP Portfolio theme.
In this age and day, ‘always-accessible‘ online presence is of prime importance and professionals like you would definitely want to provide optimum experience to your customers irrespective of the device they use. This theme caters to this crucial need while still maintaining the familiarity and flexibility of WordPress. You can create a customizable business portfolio site with beautiful slider and custom widgets in a jiffy. Simply set it up and it will dynamically adjust the layout based on the device used.
ake a look at the demo of the Responsive Business Portfolio theme. Try changing the width and height of your browser windows and see how it ‘responds’! You can even test drive the theme at: test.templatic.com. We hope you like our first Responsive theme. Don’t forget to provide us your feedback.

Few days ago we published an article about the upcoming WordCamp event in Jabalpur, India. Templatics own Bhavesh Radadiya is scheduled to speak on the first day of the event. This will be a great opportunity to meet Bhavesh in person and share your views about Templatic. To make things even more interesting Bhavesh has four extra tickets for the event.
As the title suggests, Jabalpur, India will be hosting a WordCamp event. The event is taking place on 15th and 16th October of this year. This WordCamp is extremely special to us at Templatic because our own Bhavesh Radadiya will speak at the event.
WordCamp Jabalpur visitors will be able to hear speeches from various speakers from all over the country. Speakers include Gautam Gupta, King Sidharth, Mohit Pawar and many, many more.
Other than great speakers visitors will be able to listen to some great topics like:
Hacking a WordPress Theme
Theme Development and Customizing
Tips for Optimizing WP Performance and Usability
Custom Post Types and Taxonomies in WordPress 3.x
and many more…

The only drawback in using custom menus with GeoPlaces is the fact you lose that pretty home icon. Even tough a “fix” for this is located in our support forum for a while it doesn’t hurt to publish it here, where it’s available for a far greater audience.
First step is downloading the home icons. You can download the zip file by clicking here
Upload the icons into the wp-content/themes/GeoPlaces/images folder
Last couple of weeks have been pretty exciting here at Templatic. It has become an unspoken norm within our team to create more and more niche themes specifically targeted at a particular group / community of users. Of course, our users have played a tremendous role in encouraging us doing so. You have liked our previous niche themes and here we are again, presenting a brand new theme for publishers, book authors and artists to sell digital products – Publisher theme for WordPress.
Publisher is a WordPress theme built for those who wish to showcase and sell digital products online – be it PDF eBooks, audio CDs, DVDs, etc. Book authors can sell their work online with this theme. Music companies can enlist their albums, offer previews as a downloadable file of their songs and sell albums. It is a theme that caters to individuals who aim to earn money by selling digital products.
Here are some of the nice features of this theme:
Sell unlimited products: You can enlist as many digital products as you want and sell them online.
E-Junkie integration: We have seamlessly integrated E-Junkie digital download system along with secure native download. Users can easily select any of the two methods to manage sales.
Secured downloads: We’ve implemented all that’s necessary to secure your uploaded files. Users will be able to download them only after the payment is done.
PayPal support: Payments for your digital products are handled through PayPal gateway, so you know it’s safe.
1 theme for all: Although we’re calling it ‘Publisher’, this theme can be used by individual book authors, small music companies, artists, etc. who wish to sell digital products online.
We have tried to streamline the product management in the back-end as much as possible. You can add new products, specify details using custom fields like Artist/Author’s name, profile link, price, publishing date, language, etc. As I mentioned, you can offer either native selling or off-site selling or both. Apparently, you can specify different prices and download links for each of them. Buyers can easily select the type they want and proceed with the payment process. You can list unlimited sites for off-site selling. E-Junkie digital download system has been seamlessly integrated within the Publisher theme to provide you maximum benefits.
A dedicated short-code [tabber] has been implemented for you to easily create different tabbed sections like ‘Description’, ‘Custom reviews’, ‘Author Info’, etc on product detail pages. Viewers can rate your product and leave feedback. Buyers are provided with their own buyer dashboard where they can view and download previous purchases and manage their account settings. Like most of our themes, there are many custom widgets packed into this theme and the homepage is entirely widgetized.
While it almost looks like one, Publisher is not an eCommerce theme. So you won’t find most of the features of our eCommerce themes. However, we hope that you like it and provide us your valuable feedback. Please check out the demo and test drive the theme for free before purchase.
Like this theme? Want to have it? Help us spread the word about it and who knows, maybe you’ll be among 3 lucky winners who will get it. Unlike our past contests where all 3 winners won the theme by retweeting or liking the post on Facebook, this time you can also win the theme by being the fastest one to respond (with a correct answer) to our Twitter question. The question will be published on our Twitter feed sometime between today and September 25th. Just like before, there will be 3 winners overall, but now 2 will get there by retweeting or liking the post on Facebook and one will win the theme by answering our Twitter question.
Note (for Twitter users): In order to participate in the contest you must follow @templatic because winners will be notified via direct message.
