The new 2018 year has just started, but there are a lot of things to do already, starting with the changes to the Dev4Press website, improvements to renewal process and few more things.
Dev4Press website has been updated to WordPress 4.9.1 after a period of testing to make sure nothing will get broken related to our custom built plugins and themes running the website. And, PHP has been updated to version 7.1.12. All our custom plugins and themes have been updated, and that includes a lot of bugs fixed (most of them were not critical), improvements to plugins performance, updates to the database schema and new renewal process.
Each user with the license active on December 31, 2017, will get the bonus coupon for 30% discount that can be used for a new purchase during 2018. Coupon can be used for one purchase, and users can use it to purchase a license for themselves or give it to a friend or a client.
If an account is eligible for the bonus coupon, Bonus tab will be available on the user account. Once the coupon is used, notice will be displayed. Each coupon can be used only once.
Until today, the renewal of licenses was possible only in a month before the license expires, and each license had to be renewed on its own, and that makes the problem when you have to renew multiple licenses at once. So, now, all that has changed. New renewals panel is added, and this panel shows all licenses eligible for renewal.
Now, you can renew multiple licenses with a single purchase, and you will be able to select when you want to renew and what. And, the renewals can be done anytime you want. The only thing that remains as before is that discount for the license is available up to 15 days from the license expiration date. After that, if you decide to renew, you will need to buy the license again.
I would like to hear what you think about the changes, and if you have any suggestions for future improvements. New 2018 will bring more updates to the website and all our products, closely following the WordPress development. For now, from Dev4Press and myself, I wish you a happy new year.
