Dev4Press in 2010: The Final Report

Tomorrow, Dev4Press website enters its third year. And while 2009 was warming up year, 2010 is the first full year Dev4Press was dedicated to premium WordPress development and support for both themes and plugins with additional work on many interesting projects.


Dev4Press most successful premium plugins without a doubt are GD Press Tools and GD Custom Posts And Taxonomies Tools. Both plugins went through several major releases and got tons of new features  and they are absolutely most powerful tools in its class available for WordPress. GD aZon FUSION is a new plugin that is still in Beta phase, and will soon get first stable release. GD Affiliate Center development was a bit slower, but many more exciting features will be added to the plugin in the next couple of months. GD Simple Widgets development was also slower, but 3.0 version is already in works. With work continuing on GD Star Rating 2.0, next year will be very busy.

xScape & Themes

Most important development project this year on Dev4Press is creation of xScape, the most advanced theme framework for WordPress. Over the past 9 months xScape went through several major releases and countless number of features are added. xScape offers several unique features that allow you easy layout manipulation, ads integration, several modules and many widgets to use.

So far 7 themes are created, 3 of them are designed by my friend Vladan Vasic (Peexon Design), and he will contribute few more designs in the next year. I am in talks with 2 more designers to contribute few more themes in 2011.


More than 70 tutorials are published on Dev4Press in 2010, and almost 200 other posts regarding development, releases and updates. Documentation Central is growing with some 80 entries available so far. About half of tutorials are videos and that similar trend will continue next year. As the Dev4Press premium users already know, many tutorials published in the recent months are requested by them, so if you need something made into the tutorial, feel free to leave a request in the forum.

Forum & Support

Over 200 topics and almost 1000 posts in the forum are best starting place to get premium support for themes, plugins and WordPress. Also, almost 100 premium support email tickets are opened by premium users, and all solved successfully. Most of them were for GD Star Rating premium support.

I am very grateful for the constant support for all the premium users on Dev4Press. We still don’t have a huge user base, but it’s growing, and your influence on the development progress is simply great: ideas for new features and help in finding bugs are¬†immeasurable and there are still many suggestions that will be added to both plugins and themes in the coming months. I will always try to incorporate most (if not all) ideas into the development process and provide features that users need the most.

Final words…

So, 2010 is ending today, and I must say that I am very satisfied with the work done this year, and I can promise that intense development will continue in 2011. I wish to all Happy New Year!
