It has been 2 years to the day since I started working on new Dev4Press website and premium plugins business project. And, exactly one month after that, Dev4Press was online. With a bit of history of Dev4Press, we re giving 30% discount for all our products for the next month.
Here is a bit of history of Dev4Press project and how all this came to life. I had an idea to start a business for development of premium plugins back in December of 2008, and to get things rolling, I have registered dev4press.com domain on January 5 2009. At the time, I was still working with my old company, and I had little time for new business. Still, during 2009 I started with developing plugins that will be available as Pro versions later.
From Summer of 2009 I started working on some of the design solutions, including logo. Logo in several variations that are in use still was designed by Vladan Vasic from Peexon Design. You can see basic version of the logo on the right.
First Pro only plugin I started developing was GD Affiliate Center, and by the time Dev4Press started working in December of 2009, this plugin was in Beta. Official first stable release was available in April 2010. Most important plugins were Pro version of GD Taxonomies Tools (later became GD Custom Posts And Taxonomies Tools) and GD Press Tools. Both versions were developed during the Summer and Autumn and were released same day with the launch of Dev4Press website.
First version of new Dev4Press website was online from December 15 2009, and it was using The Station theme by WooThemes. It was heavily modded and it remained in use until the September of 2010 when it was replaced by lightScape theme using in-house developed xScape Theme Framework.
Not to go into too many details, there will be a time for that, here is a quick products and release statistics of Dev4Press work over the past two years:
- 6 Pro plugins
- 8 Lite/Free plugins
- 10 Premium themes
- 645 releases of plugins and themes
- 200.000 downloads of all products
- 30.000 websites using our products
I am preparing detailed Dev4Press summary for the past two years, and that will be published on December 15 2011. But, until that day, Dev4Press is in a full month celebration mood, and what better to celebrate such an important anniversary, than to have 30% discount for all purchases during that period.
From today, November 15 2011 until the December 15 2011, you will get 30% discount for all our products and all our licenses versions. Discount coupon will be automatically applied to all purchase links and shopping cart on this website, but if you get to checkout page on ShareIt some other way, discount coupon to use is D4PTWOYEARS.
I would like to thank all Dev4Press users for their continued support and for pushing the plugins and themes development. I hope to deliver more great releases over many years to come.
