It’s been a while since we made a new release, but we were able to make it before the end of January. There were a number of delays when developing our latest theme so we had to push back the launch date a bit, and we were fearing we’d have to go through a full month without putting out new stuff. Nevertheless, our new premium WordPress theme is here, and it’s quite a special one.
Forelight is our first premium ecommerce theme, although not in the general sense. We’ve developed this theme for a rather specific purpose– to be used with the Easy Digital Downloads plugin. For those of you who don’t know about it, Easy Digital Downloads (or EDD, for short) is a plugin that turns your WordPress site into an online store. It is fast, lightweight, and has a wide range of extensions available to accomplish just about anything. This site, for instance, works using EDD.
Although Forelight is a theme that works perfectly on its own, we developed it paying a lot of attention to the online store aspect. We wanted to create fully custom product pages that are normally absent in the plugin (especially since the plugin only used the default post template of the currently active theme). In fact, we even added a custom stylesheet that you can use in place of the default EDD styles, for a more seamless look. If you choose to deactivate the EDD styles, the theme stylesheet will be used in its place and all the colors you’ve chosen will take effect.
Overall, we’re satisfied with how this ecommerce theme has turned out, and we hope you like it as much as we enjoyed developing it. Like with previous releases, the Forelight theme is available right away for all CPOThemes subscribers. For those of you who haven’t subscribed yet, what are you waiting for?
