If you keep up with the latest developments at WordPress, you’d probably know that version 3.2 is out now, after a few beta and RC releases. It brought with it some cool new features and some notable UI changes too. We’d like to notify our users that WordPress 3.2 has some minimum requirement changes as mentioned below.

We’ve tested our themes on WordPress 3.2 and are glad that they are all working as they should. In a rare event, if you find any issues with any of our themes, please let us know via our helpdesk and we’ll sort it out.
Our appointment theme has proved to be a success and as previewed earlier, we are releasing Spa Salon – our 3rd theme of this month today. Built specifically for spa, salon and other service providing business, you will love it’s elegance, simplicity and advanced capabilities.
The strategically planned, fully widgeted homepage lets you manage all the sections as per your choice. The homepage highlights a sleek image slider for you to showcase your business center facilities and services. Also the theme contains many other custom built widgets built specifically for service business such as “Special offers”, “Business hours”, “Appointment Booking form”, “Contact Information”, “Social media” etc.
Each of the inner pages in this theme lets you set a full width banner image matching that particular page / service and of course, it supports standard blogging system of WordPress so you can start your spa business blog, communicating with end-user.
Manage services, Book Appointments, Charge for it
Add/Edit/Delete the services you provide and manage appointments for those services. The intuitive admin panel of the theme lets you to accept, reject and further manage booking requests. Once you accept/reject a request, the customer will be notified via email, too. Additionally, you can manually add a booking request received via offline media. ‘Spa Salon’ theme will become an ultimate booking managing tool for your spa salon business before you know it.
You can even set prices for the appointment for each of those services and can accept payment directly in your PayPal account. This way, you get serious, confirmed appointments only and not just general inquiries. Once the booking is done, that time slot will no longer be shown to anyone else in the front-end of the site.
Just in case you wish to only charge only some % of the full price, you can set this as well from the wp-admin > spa-salon theme settings.
Just like many of our themes, Spa Salon, too, comes with 5 beautiful color schemes.

“Hello Templatic readers, I’m James Bagart, an attorney by profession. I started my practice a year ago and overtime I felt the need to have an online presence. I wanted to have my own website where potential clients could reach me from anywhere, anytime. Also, I wanted some online booking functionality embedded into it where my clients can book appointment requests and I could approve and reject them based on my availability to ease tasks for both of us. I am glad I stumbled upon this WordPress theme called ‘Appointment’ from Templatic. Based on what I learnt about it, followed by my experience with the theme’s demo, I was excited to try the Appointment theme on their test site.
When I first saw the homepage with the ‘book appointment’ form, I was literally awe-struck. That was exactly what I wanted. A custom-editable site with an appointment form where I could manage approve, reject and manage appointment requests from clients. My curiosity increased and I logged-in to the admin panel on my test site to check the back-end possibilities. To ease the setup, there is an auto-install option which populates sample data to start with, which is quite cool. I went on to edit the booking form as per my requirements and what’s nice about it is that, I could add/edit/delete any number of fields without any limitation whatsoever. However, I thought it’d be wise to keep the fields to a minimum in order not to overwhelm my site visitors. It hardly took me an hour to setup my site.
There’s a cool ‘My work’ section where I can list my previous works, a ‘Services’ section to list my services and a blog. Did I mention that the home page is entirely widgetized? There are all sorts widgets for setting up my location on a Google Map, closing hours, availability, etc. There is also an option where I can add an appointment manually for a client who sent his request via some other offline medium. Payments can be accepted via PayPal. Must say, Templatic has developed this theme very thoughtfully, keeping in mind the requirements of vast majority of professionals. I am definitely going to buy this theme.”
Please note: The above story is our humble attempt to launch a theme in a first person perspective so as to better connect with you. Just imagine the diversity of people from different areas of life who can use the Appointment theme. Doctors can take appointments from their patients. Lawyers, consultants and business owners can do the same from their clients. Restaurant owners can take food orders from consumers. The possibilities are endless.
