Many of our users requested a theme built for real estate business earlier. Finally, we have a theme under design phase for this niche and here’s what we came up with.
eShop would have been our first e-commerce theme instead of Store. But we wished to introduce elegance first. We received many feedbacks, suggestions and improvements request on our e-commerce theme and had to postpone the release of this eShop theme. We worked really hard past these days with our beta testers and improved our e-commerce platform to great deal.

We included everything of that into our e-commerce platform and upgraded store theme to 1.1 version ( available in member area now). Along with that, here’s eShop theme with the best e-commerce theme platform for wordpress.

Till date, the best way to build an e-commerce website in wordpress was to download / buy a plugin and fit it into a theme you were already using at your site. While those plugins provided the e-commerce features, it was not built specifically for the theme YOU are using, thus compromising design quality and usability. The free plugins charged you to get basic features such as “show products in grid-view”.
Not anymore. In our site re-brand post we declared that we were working on an e-commerce platform and introduced various features of e-commerce platform built specifically for the wordpress users. The wait is over. Here’s Store – our first theme in the e-commerce series.
An elegant store theme for small business with powerful features at the backend. You won’t need to install any plugins. This theme have everything built-in. Ofcourse you can add as many products you want. But most of the stores does have limited products to offer. This theme is designed for those small business who have more than 1 and less than 1000 products. Also we have more themes coming on this e-commerce platform for different kind of businesses.
We’re not going to say much. Rather, you might wish to test-drive this product, or view screen shot tour of the backed features. We’ve provided it all, in detail at our official Store theme sales page. Headover to the Store theme sales page to get impressed and buy the theme.
Did we miss something important / stuff something that’s not required? we’d be glad to hear your feedbacks & critiques via comment form in this page.
Earlier this week, we explained how How we used and modded P2 theme to enhance productivity at Templatic and many users really liked the concept of this private collaborating and requested us to release this theme. Well, here’s the free, improved version of the theme with theme admin options for you.
If you are looking for shiny looks, this may not be the theme for you, please download our other freebies. But if you are looking to collaborate with a small team or, you need a private blog where only your team members can view, share files and write the content without going to backend, this is the theme you’ve been looking for.
Here’s some of the features of the theme.
we added file attachment and user notification functions into the P2 theme. Also we added theme admin options so you can avoid features that you do not want.
A twitter like theme where the admin and authors can post and reply quick status updates without going to wordpress admin.
If private blogging is enabled via theme admin options, You will need to log-in before accessing the blog content. With the members only function in the theme, it serves as private blog as well wherein, you may post the ongoing updates and concerns without any kind of formalities, can make fun or even rant.
Attach file(s) when you post an update. Perfect for bug reporting and other tiny file transfers so you refer to the update whenever you need.
Notify users When you are adding an important update and want to make sure all / some members needs to be notified about an update. Simply select all/some of the users and post your update. The selected users will be sent an email with the alert on the update you made.
Very simple and usable look that resembles 37signal’s product basecamp.
If you wish to keep the header small, simply remove pages and slogan from your wp-admin and the header height will automatically be reduced.
Support for this theme is exclusively available to our customers only. You may purchase one of our theme from our Premium Themes Store and attain support.Emails requesting support for this theme will not be responded, comments will be deleted.
The base theme is P2 – a theme developed by Noel Jackson fromAutomattic team.
Looks of this theme resembles 37signal’s product basecamp.
The theme is released under GPL license. You may use the them for personal or business use. You are free to modify theme in anyway you want, you may remove credits from the footer.
Though not compulsory, we’d appreciate a link back to this page in case you wish to share the theme.
The team templatic is growing and simple emails can’t really be of use to keep everyone updated. Project Management tools like BasecampHQ are widely popular for bigger project/task management. But we needed a very simple tool that serves as private blog + a twitter like place to update status on multiple things so the team members are aware of what’s going on – without wasting time on things like creating projects, creating and managing tasks and so on.
Fortunately, wordpress.org have created P2 theme that enables blog admin and authors to quickly create twitter like miniposts without going to backend. A perfect tool that can be installed and used within 10 minutes.
Create users as authors so they can also write posts from your blog front.
And it’s done. A perfect tool to collaborate in less than 10 minutes.
We needed privacy
However, we needed to keep the blog private . For this, all we needed to do was to implement something that asks a user to log-in before they can access the blog. There are many advanced plugins for this but simplicity is the key and we chose members-only plugin because it did just that.
That was it. We had our own private blog where all of our team members can post quick updates, report bugs, provide suggestions and so on. As simple as you’d post a tweet.
Some additional functionality and simple looks
We wanted keep this blog simple as saving time is one of our main goal. But I liked the simple and usable looks of the basecamp project management software. On the Sunday morning, I couldn’t resist and made some quick css changes and voila, within 2 hours, we have a private collaborative tool that looks like a basecamp product ( though, we kept the fonts default helvetica instead of lucida grande used at basecamp).
We were happy with the private blog but needed 2 more features that are very essential in collaborating
File upload/sharing and
Notification to the user(s) on some important updates that need their immediate attention.
We requested Vipul, our programming master to do this which he coded in few hours.
And that’s it. Now we think that we have a perfect tool that comes handy when providing an update on diffferent things being developed at templatic. And we do not plan to add any more functions as we mentioned before – simplicity is the key.
It’d be great to know what tools do you use to manage tasks/projects? Your experiences and thoughts on simple project management. Please share via comments.
In our re-launch post, we mentioned our upcoming premium wordpress themes with e-commerce platform built in. Here’s an intro post that lists some of the features of the same.
Why a platform?
We always wanted to create e-commerce themes as we know many of our customers do sell digital products or, manage stores. There are several open source shopping cart scripts but most of them are way too much complicated to understand and get started.
There also exists some e-commerce plugins but then, you can’t get a good, elegant design that plays key role in converting visitors into customers. Also there are some free plugins available but they come with limited functionality, ultimately you end up paying a price to avail rest of the features that are must-have into e-commerce themes.
We understand that people use WordPress because it’s easy. It’s a CMS that makes website management easy, without hassles and that is why, managing your online store from within wordpress is a very convenient option to have. And that is why, we built an e-commerce theme platform of our own based on which, we will be rolling several themes so you can build an online store of every kind. Here’s preview to some of the features.
Salient features in our e-commerce themes
Here’s a quick list of some of the key features in our e-commerce themes. The features are balanced as we didn’t stuff every e-commerce features out there. Including only those that are must-haves for a well functional e-commerce store.
Different modes of Shopping Cart: You may sell anything – tangible or intangible using our themes. You have an option to create your website in any mode.
Shopping Cart: Like the standard shopping cart that you see on other e-commerce websites. You may choose to have “add to cart” mode and let the users add all the items they want and then lead them to checkout or, you can have “buy now” mode and take them straight to checkout when they select a product.
Digital Shop: If you are selling digital product of any kind, this is a perfect option for you. Are you selling icons, digital art, PDF, e-books, scripts or any other kind of digital goodies? Select this option and when a user makes a purchase, they will have an account generated at your site and they can download their purchase any time. You don’t have to worry about third party digital delivery sites.
Catalog mode: Maybe you only want to showcase your items and don’t want to sell it online. Simply choose this mode and you will have “send inquiry” button instead of buy now / add to cart. Visitors thus, can send an inquiry on the products they like.
Manage Products: Add / Edit / Delete products are as easy as you create a wordpress blog post. You have a custom panel where-in you can edit the product description, different parameters, upload product images etc. real easy.
Order Management: Depending upon the settings from your admin panel, you can manage the order – approve, process or cancel / reject an order.
Shipping Options: As an admin, you can choose Free, Flat rate; Weight or Price based shipping option for your store. What’s more you can even set free shipping for particular items in case you’ve set other option for your store.
Multiple Payment Gateways: You have PayPal, Authorize.net, 2CO, Google Checkout, WorldPay, bank transfer and Cash on Delivery as payment gateway options. Choose the gateway you prefer.
Manage Tax: You may specify overall tax percentage that applies to all your products and, you may choose to leave individual products tax free
Usability: One of the reason it took us long time to complete the backend of the e-commerce themes is, usability. We studied best practices of building e-commerce websites, studied lots of successful online stores and brainstormed some of the key pages and functionality that may impact the sales process that your customer goes through. We reduced the steps of the process, restructured the purchase experience, debated on the small elements such as button / text / colors / notifications etc., finally concluding our base e-commerce theme to be one of the very easy to use and best performing purchase experience so far.
Grid view / List view: Whenever you are browsing the product collection, you have an option to see the products in list view or grid view. It’s built-in by default.
User registration: Users may register on your site or, they will be taken to registration page on the checkout procedure. They will have their own user area where they can keep track of their order, manage profile and download purchased digital products.
Bulk Upload ( csv ): Using another shopping cart solution for your store and want to switch to our store themes? No worries. You can export your data from there in .csv files and import it in your wordpress installation when you use our store themes.
Coupon codes: Admin can generate coupon codes for occasional sales promotion.
Product Images: Built in multiple product image upload. Uploaded images are auto re-sized to fit various thumbnails required throughout the site. Also the product zoom functionality is built it.
Other parameters: Specifying Tax, weight, color(s), size(s) are easy. Also you may specify different prices for different size/colors just in case.
Miscellaneous: You may specify Size chart if applied, When viewing a product Similar Products are automatically displayed, Several additional custom widgets are built in such as customer support, Subscribe, socialize, promo banners etc. that you can use for your store website.
Blog: Of course the themes come with blog, pages etc. functionality with some page templates so you can have a blog for your website.

As We guys already told you there’s some big stuff coming at PremiumThemes. Well, the big thing is almost ready for the launch. Yeah, Templatic. Officially, on 10th of December 2009. PremiumThemes is relaunching and rebranding itself as Templatic. Bringing anonymous changes to the quality of WordPress Themes, we guys at Templatic aim to rock again.

Why change the brand?
For better branding. We’ve already been into wordpress theme development since last 2+ years and we will continue to do so. However, we will also focus on other quality CMS templates in future and templatic should prove to be a valuable brand in long run. Also with the previous brand name being a generic keyword for paid theme reference, we needed a personality and here we are with a unique name and different approach.
We have re branded with our new site design which is more user friendly, easy to navigate and many minor changes. Some part of the site is still needs to be redone but we are working on it and this week, everything should be completed.
What’s coming this week?
This launch is just a beginning. We are coming with totally new themes that will help you grow your business even better. This week, will be showing a preview to our totally awesome e-commerce themes platform this week. Say good bye to plugins.
