DevPress has launched today which should prove to be a valuable resource for professional WordPress themes and plugins.
It is the brainchild of four well-known WordPress developers who you may have heard of before.
- Justin Tadlock – Developer of a handful of many free WordPress plugins and themes. Probably best known for his work on Theme Hybrid.
- Patrick Daly – Known for developing several free Hybrid child themes and also being a supporter of child theme listings in WordPress.org.
- Ptah Dunbar – Known for his significant contributions to the WordPress core as well as his WP Framework theme.
- Tung Do, probably better known as Small Potato is best known as being the original creator and former owner of WPDesigner.
They have also launched with a few new free WordPress themes and plugins.
Free News Theme
DevPress has launched with a pretty sweet free news theme release, simply called: News. Click the screenshot below for a live demo.
DevPress also launched with a number of plugins, all of which are free at the moment.
- Clean My Archives – An easy way of creating archive pages of your blog posts.
- Slideshow – A slideshow plugin utilizing the jQuery Cycle plugin.
- Members – Justin Tadlock moved his popular membership plugin over to DevPress as well.
DevPress is definitely a dream team of great WordPress developers and the products they have released so far are very promising.
Everything so far on the site being free (including themes, plugins, support, and documentation) is cool and all, but it would be nice to see some paid products released in the future to make the site seem more sustainable and future-proof.
Even the founders of the site seem to be unsure of the direction DevPress is going so I’m sure we’ll all be eagerly watching to see what unfolds for the future of the site.
Looking for web hosting?
Question: What's the best type of web hosting?
Answer: The kind you don't have to worry about.
And that's precisely why I recommend HostGator. I've been using them myself for years and they've been nothing short of superb.
Fast load times, great support, WordPress-friendly, and good prices. Not much more you can ask for.
New customers can get 25% off of any HostGator web hosting package with the coupon: themelab25percentoffNote: I am a HostGator affiliate, but that doesn't make my recommendation any less genuine.
