Preview to themes in the pipeline

Posted on

All of the themes mentioned in this preview have been released! To learn more about each of them visit our Themes Gallery

You guys loved our earlier posts showcasing theme previews. We received many positive and constructive ideas about what features to include in our upcoming themes. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to showcase a preview to the themes released in last 3 months because of frenzied development and release schedule. But hey, we are back again with the teasers.

Here are some previews of some of the upcoming themes we are excited about. What’s special about our themes is that they are strategically structured. We try to wire frame and iterate them unless a satisfactory layout is created that includes most of what a particular niche theme requires and works best for the business. Talks apart, here’s the previews…

StoreBox and several other ecommerce themes

This has been long time pending. It’s been real long since we released an ecommerce theme on this site. Well the wait is almost over and you should see few dynamic themes about to be released in this niche very shortly.

Appointment

You asked for it and you are going to get it. Appointment theme for doctors, therapists, consultants, spa or salon owners, astrologers or any service based business who require their customers to set prior appointment. We are sure you will love this strategically beautiful theme. It is structured and planned in such a way it will help you showcase all aspects of your business while also allowing you and your clients to dynamically manage appointments with your business.

Plus One


Named after google’s plus one feature, this unique theme lets you vote on a post you like. Also you can enable your visitors to submit an article and keep track of their favorite posts.

Kind of a mini social media site based on WordPress.

Spa & Salon


A slight variation to the appointment theme, this theme particularly focuses on spa or salon business. It has some similar features of the Appointment theme, plus some specific features.

Hotel Booking

This upcoming elegant theme will focus on hotel business and hotel room booking. This theme is specially crafted for hotel business owners. Make sure you check this one out.

    Wow really looking forward to the new e-commerce theme!

  2. Jerry says:

    Awesome stuff! Definitely looking forward to Plus One the most.

    I’d like the ability to turn off registration and maybe just have users submit posts/news via a form. Less admin work and I can have more control over content imo.

    I also hope to see other social media integration after the post like minimagazine, which was excellent =)

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      You bet it has all of the stuff you are looking for. Users can submit a news which may be directly published or saved as draft.

      users can vote and keep track of the posts they have voted on by registering Or, admin can set guest only mode where users can vote and do not need to register.

      1. Madhav Shivpuri says:

        Bhavesh,

        +1 theme is interesting. One thing I am interested to know is how do prevent bots from registering thru a WP site once registration is open to all?

        1. R.Bhavesh says:

          Initial version won’t have captcha built-in but if the theme proves to be popular, we will include captcha as well.

  3. cyrus says:

    Really Looking forward to the Spa and Hotel templates…cant wait

  4. WP Dezign says:

    Will you be releasing the groupon related theme? ;-)

    Anytime soon?

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      We might. Soon? Cant promise anything at the moment .

      1. Mars says:

        Groupon theme would be great, but tomorow, cause after tomorow it will be out dated… may be you can do a theme that can be used to make a groupon clone and an agregator of deals, so tomorow would be ok too, but after after tomorow it will be out dated too :)
        see you guys,
        Mars

        1. R.Bhavesh says:

          :) agreed. However, groupon kind of themes take lot of planning and time to build. We will see what can be done about this

  5. WP Dezign says:

    I love storebox!

  6. Steven Gliebe says:

    These do look really nice. Thank you for the previews.

  7. Alek Z. says:

    Like your themes! Appointment and Hotel Booking will be interesting to try. Keep up the good work!

  8. Tej SolPro says:

    Awesome themes. You are going to ROCK the wordpress theme market.

  9. Nona says:

    Awesome !! Storebox and PlusOne definetely out of the box…
    Your team always have an extraordinary idea, superb concept and clean design.
    That’s very good. I love it.
    (And that will be much more better if you push up your support/ helpdesk and security issues too.
    I think those issues are what most people talking about Templatic now).

    Can’t wait to see Templatic stands out over other themes companies.
    (like this one >> //wpcandy.com/series-on/theme-madness-2011).

    So once again, the point of my feedbacks are reliable support / helpdesk… and security stuff…
    I believe you can do it.
    I’m really sure.. I’m your fans Templatic!

    =)

    many thanks

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      Thanks Nona for the constructive feedback and wishes. Our support is stronger than ever with 6 people onsite + 1 person remotely working only on Support + documentation etc.

      Not really sure how you are facing security issues. Can you please write to me and let me know about them? – hi at rbhavesh dot com is my mail ID

  10. Vg012 says:

    Very cool stuff, looking forward to Plus One and Appointment theme. Any ETA :)? You guys have stunning designs.

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      Can’t promise any ETA as in past, some last minute hiccups have delayed the theme launches and disappointed our users :)

  11. Ivan says:

    I like the Store box Threadless ispired theme alot. What I think lacks so far in general to the market of premium themes is a theme that allows clients to feature many products without the theme itself being E-COMMERCE theme. I mean We want to add many products, in various categories, possibly Related Products, filtering by product type, but no e-commerse – shopping cart, shipping etc. Something like this

    //www.trirlighting.com/products-page/

    of course this is a (heavily) modified theme…so an out-of-the-box solution would be nice.

    So far I’m not sure there’s such thing on the market. There are gazillion of portfolio themes, lawyer ones, hotel & resturant ones, but nothing like this. Just my 2 cents.

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      Thanks for this detailed feedback Ivan. Have you tried our e-commerce themes? They HAVE four different modes.

      – Digital Products
      – Physical Products
      – Inquiry Mode
      – Affiliate mode

      In inquiry mode, you can showcase as many products as you want and instead of add to cart, Inquiry button will be shown which will show a contact form popup so that user can send inquiry about that particular product.

      in affiliate mode, you can add product and set your own link in the Buy Now button. Very good for affiliates or someone who do not want a shopping cart

      1. Ivan says:

        Bhavesh
        Thank you for your reply. I kinda lean towards using WP Store, and since we have a developers license I already installed it. The problem is that I can’t see the INQUIRY MODE in WP Store, although the auto-populated data shows the products in INQUIRY MODE. My problem here is that it still shows Regular Price, etc. – something that I definitely don’t want. I guess I could spend some time digging in your code and strip out this from the template, but you agree it is a bit tedious :) Also as for the featured products on the homepage, even if I remove the Price, it still shows the 0.00 price. Is there any way that I can generally disable price showing? I know I’d better post this as a support ticket…in fact I will do it right now :)

        1. R.Bhavesh says:

          Tell you the easiest cheat? Simply hide the price field via a one line change of CSS code. Our support staff will definitely help you with this.

          Or, use firebug, find out the class being used for showing price in css file and add “display: none” . A simple style.css change can do this :)

  12. cyrus says:

    Really looking forward to the Spa and Hotel Template… hope it’s released soon.. : )

  13. Jacob says:

    I’m looking forward to the Plus One as it will offer me some great resources to build an article directory on my own trusted domains. Can’t wait :)

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      We also have a theme specifically built for this purpose. Take a look at our Article Directory theme here //templatic.com/demos/articledirectory/

  14. severus says:

    I see you take into account the opinions/needs your users. Thanks

    I need the Hotel booking very much. Could you give us an idea on what is the schedule of these releases.-

    Other thing.

    Would you considering the idea of Rock Music Band theme? A template where a rock/pop/whatever music band could interact with their fans, announce their coming events or tournees, sell their CDs and mechanize, sale downloads of their music as phone tone, talk about their history, make public some videos of their concerts

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      Thanks for the kind works.

      We can build a music theme for rock band. However, what you are asking is kind of huge and will make a big portal :)

      For example, selling CDs, downloads etc. are totally different thing. However, we can show you a way how to do them as well with a theme built by us if a rock band theme is released at templatic.

  15. Chris says:

    Awesome! Well Done! The themes look great. Looking forward to their release.

    Thanks!

  16. Windows & Glass says:

    My god Appointment theme is what i need for my business. Plz tell me when will be out. Are you able to set up which time you have availabe for estimate scheduling in the calender or how is it gonna work. Great one.

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      You set your working hours of a week for each day and appointments are provided accordingly. Launch of this theme is a bit far and other themes might release before this one

      1. Windows & Glass says:

        Ah well just have to wait but really this will help a lot. i was wondering if this can be like service magic style or are you thinking of making one in the near future. Thanks

  17. Phil says:

    How about something along the lines of //www.kickstarter.com

    My friend has his business idea started via this site – amazing idea for a site.

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      Others have also asked about kickstarter kind of theme. We’ll definitely give it a serious thought

      1. Shawn says:

        +1 for developing a kickstarter type theme! Run it as larger multi project aggregator or just of your projects!

  18. Mark says:

    Excellent, some fantastic themes.
    During 10 years in business, clients have asked for functionality shown in the new themes.
    Here are some initial thoughts.

    *** Appointments: the biggest issues have been:

    Time Slots
    A schedule that allowed for the different business types.
    Some, such as hairdressers, needed half hour slots whilst others needed longer
    It would be good to set the time slots that could be booked.

    Alerts
    A system to alert both the site owner and user to an approaching appointment would be fantastic.
    Especially via text and email

    A cancellation option and waiting list for booked times (or some way for a user to show alternative times they are available)

    *** Spa & Salon: the biggest issues have been:

    It will be great to have a nice site to both promote the business and take appointments properly.

    *** Hotel Booking : the biggest issues have been:

    Most reasonable sized hotels are now part of another bigger hotel system and display their availability on it.
    Most want that data incorporated into their own site and if they do take bookings on their own site they are worried about stock control and not receiving a double booking.

    Time Slots
    A schedule that allowed for the different uses.
    It would be good if hotel booking theme could also be used for renting out holiday apartments.
    Where the user could book a property for a day or week or more.

    The best solution would be able to calculate prices for the booking (with seasonal rates and longer bookings being calculated) and take a deposit.

    Being able to have more than one property would be good (just as a hotel has more than one room). However they would need to have different rates.

    This would open it’s use to many more users.

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      Hey Mark, thanks for to-the-point, constructive feedback.

      Appointments:
      Time Slots – Not an issue. we have considered this :)?Alerts – Not really sure about text alert but email will definitely be sent to both the parties.

      Cancellation option will be provided. Waiting list is not included initially though. Showing alternative time is a good idea.

      Hotel Booking :
      Agreed. You can always use “about” widget in a theme and add your booking form provided by third party and show on site. Our theme’s built-in theme booking will show entire booking history and I do not see a way we can double book the thing.

      Nice idea on Holiday booking. Maybe we should create a theme specifically for that :)

  19. Kimberly says:

    The amount of products your team is able to put out is impressive; these look great!

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      Thanks for the kudos Kimberly. They inspire and motivate us :)

  20. Mark says:

    Accommodating different languages is an issue, for a hotel or vacation apartment booking site

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      Agreed. WPML plugin compatibility could solve this. We will look into this further

      1. Ivan says:

        Totally agree on this. Just tested the free version of WPML and it doesn’t work well with WP Store. I was afraid it won’t work on custom posts, but it seems that PRODUCTS aren’t exactly custom posts as they appear in both PRODUCTS and POSTS sections and the translated post appears Uncategorized, and in Products section, instead of Blog (bearing the same formatting as Product, which is not intended). Maybe I will buy and try the paid version of WPLML, but …wouldn’t like the idea of spending 79 bucks just to realize it doesn’t work on your themes.

        Working with the guys that wrote WPML would be a nice touch, as many sites now require multilingual version. I assume it is not an easy task, but since WPML claim there are premium theme developers that already complied with WMPL, adding Templatic would be nice.

  21. Madhav Shivpuri says:

    I emailed an idea for a community theme which would have features including posts (on main page) with plug ins like calendar/ events, forum etc. Though we can install the plug-ins ourselves, the homepage design will be important to link this aesthetically. Appreciate if you can build a community based theme site and provide color options.

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      Hey madhav, can you please elaborate on this one further? Maybe a sample site link or a quick sketch will help us understand this better.

      Also please let us know the “purpose” of this theme – which will give us much more clarity on how it should be built.

      1. Martin Gicheru says:

        Maybe you would look at entrepreneur.com, hopefully it’s what @madhav is talking about. I would love to run such a site.

        1. R.Bhavesh says:

          Okay so it will be kind of a magazine theme with multiple authors which also links to forums (can be done via plugin), upcoming events (can be done by a custom post type specifically for events). Or there is more?

  22. Bernardo says:

    Bhavesh we look for a Crowdsourcing theme, some theme with the kickstarter site functions.

    Good job

    best

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      Nice suggestion. We are adding this in our wishlist.

  23. Zi says:

    Great work guys. I hope themes like plus one can have option of logging in via Facebook/twitter/google

    Also on wordpress, option to set own password at registration would be cool

    Thanks!

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      Thanks for this suggestion. We’ll try accommodating them.

      However, initially, only WordPress login will work and no other.

  24. Steve UK says:

    Looking great!

    Will these be available on your sister site ecommerceplex using the framework?

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      This themes will be available on this site as well – built on top of our ecommerce framework

  25. Andreas says:

    Hi,

    all of those would be of great help.
    templatic is good at directory themes – so I think what is really missing is a hotel directory theme.
    Something where you can enter hotels and motels with free configurable fields and a rating system which are rich snippets.

    Br,
    Andreas

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      Thanks Andreas. Don’t you think our GeoPlaces theme could do this job? :)

      1. Alvin says:

        I know it does! Andreas you should check out Geoplaces for sure!

      2. Mark says:

        It can, but it does not list them clearly as in the Directory theme.
        By making the category headings as locations/areas in a city

        The Directory theme would benefit from a map feature, as in GeoPlaces

      3. Andreas says:

        No Geoplaces in its current state is not it.
        Geoplaces does not include rich snippets (so rating is rendered useless) and for accomodations the layout for custom fields would need to be updated.
        Taking a closer look to all those booking platforms and refining geoplaces – this would be it!

        1. R.Bhavesh says:

          Not really sure whether I understood your comment properly. If possible, can you please show us a sample link of such site in action?

          Keep up the feedback – they are helpful :)

  26. steve says:

    In recent months, Google has moved over to a massive swing aimed at ‘local search’ and Google Places listings are incorporated into the main organic section now, so anyone searching for say ‘plumber new york’ will see GP listings and organic listings.

    With this aim towards local business’s, we know that the ‘small business’ man or woman are the life-line of communities and I have yet to see any theme designers taylor a web site for the small business, i.e ‘plumber’, ‘electrician’, ‘carpenter’, ‘hair salon’ etc etc and I think there is a HUGE market out there for that kind of ‘theme’ that could be easily changed to accommodate these small local business’s.

    There’s too many portfolio, design, photography themes out there!

    Thats my penny’s worth!

    Steve

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      You share exact same thought as us steve. I think our GeoPlaces theme *may* be used for this. Consider it this way…

      Create a city
      Create different categories like.. – carpenter, plumber, cook etc.
      Add different posts with person biodata

      For sure this needs a bit design changes such as making image smaller etc. but can be done.

      No?

      1. Steve says:

        I think small business’s would prefer to have their own websites rather than share a generic ‘local’ web site, thats my thoughts.

        I’ll keep looking, not found ‘that’ site yet but I’m sure someone will come up with it and make $$$$$’s

  27. Mars says:

    Hey, a lot of good thins are coming :)
    Is plus one a digg like ? It should be great !
    appointment is good too, will there be a mobile version ?
    Use you soon ;)
    Best regards,
    Mars

    1. Martin Gicheru says:

      I second @Mars, the appointment theme would be complete if it allows people to book for appointments on their mobile comfortably.
      My thoughts.
      Martin

      1. R.Bhavesh says:

        Agree. Though, initial version will not be mobile ready, we will create a mobile version as 1.1 if the theme proves to be successful

  28. Dylan says:

    Plus one looks great!

    I have been looking on the market for something similar to PLUS ONE for a while now, and I think you guys might be on to something big here. I personally would be looking into using PLUS ONE to replace one my bigger sites, as it could potentially have all the options I am looking for.

    Here are my thoughts which I am sure many others share:

    – Perhaps a gallery based option? where users can submit photos more so than actual text. ie. focus on photos instead of text.

    – FB / Google / Twitter login would be really awesome and helpful.

    – Allow users to actually upload photos via a custom uploader instead of the WP backend, since this can be confusing for non-WP users (uploading of media etc).

    – When users register, it would be awesome to have them choose a specific profile, (kind of like what BuddyPress offers), and then have menu options that can filter through these profiles.

    All in all, I cannot wait for the PLUS ONE template!

    I know you guys don’t have a fixed ETA but could you maybe give us a little insight… are we talking weeks, months, years? ;)

    Keep up the good work!

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      We are talking about weeks definitely.

      Though the theme won’t be as advanced as you have mentioned, it does the voting thing perfectly for the user submitted articles.

  29. None says:

    will the ecommerce theme support paypal pro?

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      We will go with the 6 payment systems being supported at the moment. Other gateways might be supported later on.

  30. developer77 says:

    Hey, I paid 299 for the developer membership to access all themes and 2 new monthly… will these beautiful themes be included? That would be really cool!

    1. R.Bhavesh says:

      you get access to all the themes in our member area + those that we release during your membership period.

  31. Rosana says:

    I love them all.

  32. Vincent says:

    I would love to join, but not until I hear from you that the real estate theme has been updated to support Wp 3.x; menu, custom posts etc :-(

    1. helpdesk says:

      Hi Vincent,
      Real Estate theme does supports WP 3.0 menu. To use, just make a custom menu first, and then go to Widgets and insert the “custom menu” widget in “Header Navigation” area.
      Hope this helps.

      1. Vincent says:

        But what about custom posts?
        I honestly think you should remake this theme with custom posts to be more future proof before I undertake investment in time and effort to build a business with it.

        Hopefully you will do it soon, and I promise to be your first customer if you let me know.
        I really love the way you have designed it and the considerations for multi-user listings.

        If you have no intention of doing this, let me know so i can look into alternatives please.
        Thank you

        1. Saqib   says:

          For now, we don’t have any plan for integrating custom taxonomy. I have noted down your suggestion though.

  33. R.Bhavesh says:

    Last theme in this list – Hotel Booking is also released just before few minutes. Hope you all will love it :) //templatic.com/news/hotel-booking-in-wordpress-weve-covered-it

  34. Nona says:

    Templatic, you guys are so productive ..
    Thumbs up for the creative peoples !
