Two years of Dev4Press

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 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:

  1. 6 Pro plugins
  2. 8 Lite/Free plugins
  3. 10 Premium themes
  4. 645 releases of plugins and themes
  5. 200.000 downloads of all products
  6. 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.

  1. Congratulations!

    Your success is well earned, as you have provided consistent, high-quality products and support. Just last week I followed an excellently done 3 hour on-line course describing how to create a web site using custom posts and custom taxonomies. As I watched, during nearly every 5-10 minute session I said to myself, “What that video just demonstrated, I can already do automatically with the GD Custom Posts and Taxonomies Tools!”

    Thank you for making my life easier.

  3. Milan, I’m so happy for your success as if it was mine. I repeat, success, as I know what does it take to build sustainable business. I run mine since 1986 and I remember the very beginning. It was not rosy. It was a damn hard work but the feeling of accomplishment payed well for all the hardship. I’m glad to be with you as a customer from the start. I remember when you shared with me the plan of going into premium type of develpment. Over next two years you did not disappoint me in any way. You are honest, responsible, open minded, hard working, and you treat your customers seriously. Those are qualities I admire because they became less and less common in today’s business realities. Therefore I wish you to continue as successfully as you started. For your own and customers’ sake as well. Way to go. All the best. You deserve it!

  4. BTW, I could not post the above comment using Firefox 8.0. It was continously sending me to 404 page not saving my comment. I had to switch to IE 9.0 to post it. Check it out.

  7. Hi Milan,

    I’m considering your offer seriously. My main interest are your plugins because your framework seems a bit confusing to me. On the other hand, I have already purchased several good ones. I’m specially interested in flexibility to create custom pages / templates without coding. You know, a reliable platform to generate all kind of projects.

    The plugins are amazing. For example, as just to name one, GD Products Center looks to be exactly the answer to something I have been looking for a LONG time.

    So, I have doubts about purchasing the lifetime license of the Plugin pack or get this 2 year subscription offer. Please tell me:

    1. What are the conditions to renew the subscription?. Same as Now?. I mean, should we have to pay the standard price to renew the subscription or will you provide another two years at the same price?.
    2. Have you considered a lifetime membership subscription plan?.
    3. Do you offer discounts / incentives to your customers on new products you develop?

    Thanks and happy “birthday” 😉

    • Thanks Diego! I am not sure what you mean by 2 year subscription, there is no such thing here. You either get lifetime license (and that’s it, nothing to pay for that anymore), or you get annual recurring subscription and each year you pay for subscription. Lifetime is more expensive to start with, so you need to decide what is better for you. All products have lifetime plans, including themes and plugins packs. Any plugin in development (GD aZon FUSION and GD Products Center right now) have discount coupons until stable 1.0 is released. If you get plugins pack, any new future plugins are included, also plugins pack is best buy if you need two or more plugins from Dev4Press. Let me know if you need any more help. Also, if you want to test plugins and themes before purchase, use request demo contact form here:

      • Hi Milan,

        Well, by subscription I mean membership plan. And you’re right, plugin pack is best buy so I’m going to get it and see how it goes.

        One of my more urgent projects is creating a website about WP reviews in English and Spanish and here is where GD Products Center comes into play to create the products and comparisons. I’d wish to use it on sites about other niches as well.

        Regarding the framework. Yes, I would be required to evaluate in deep but 7 days is not enough at all.

        All the best

        Please wait...
        • As for the testing, I can leave it active more than 7 days if needed, no problem.

          Please wait...
          • Ok. Well, I was tempted by the two year membership promotion but finally I have just purchased the plugin pack.

            BTW: I HATE Sharit. They generate a different account for every purchase. I suggested them to consolidate all my purchases many years ago but they didn’t show any interested in my suggestions. In addition it takes several ours to get verified after purchasing (to receive the licence or whatever).

            All the best

            Please wait...
            • I have tested many payment solutions (considering where I live and how I can get money), and ShareIt is the best on. They have their faults, but other payment processors have own faults also. Unfortunately, there is no perfect solution for this. Longer processing time is in service of protecting both customer and seller to minimize frauds and other problems.
