New look, new logo, bring on 2013!
Posted on December 9, 2012
It’s been months in the making, but we’re finally here. Welcome to our new Events Manager and Events Manager Pro websites!
A brand new look
We’ve completely revamped our website, which also includes the unveiling of our new snazzy logos. Moreover, we’ve moved all Pro related downloads and support forums to eventsmanagerpro.com making this site an informational site which includes plugin info as well as docs, tutorials and more on the way.
Improvements to inner workings of our site
Another important move, which may go unnoticed (and rightly so!) is that we’ve switched membership plugins to the awesome s2Member Pro plugin, which is infinitely more flexible and reliable than the old one we originally went with, which prevented us from hitting the ground running first time round as we spent the first two months troubleshooting our support forums and other plugin-related issues.
New Dev License
We’ve also introduced a Developers/Multiple Sites License. The Pro Dev license provides the same functionality and support as the single Pro license does, but allows usage on 5 seperate websites.
Special Offer! To celebrate this new license, and to thank our loyal customers, we’re making a special offer until the end of 2012 for any users who signed up for Pro until now. Get UNLIMITED sites for the same price as a normal Dev license. Just log into our new Pro site with your usual credentials and you’ll see a link to renew/upgrade from your account page.
We’d like to thank a few people and companies for making this move possible and our lives infinitely easier.
Ben Dunkle and Field2 Designs – Ben and his team have once again helped us with graphical stuff, which includes the design of our new logos, and also adding his magic touch to our site designs. If you’re looking to add a professional and personalized touch to your site, check them out, you won’t regret it!
s2Member – We should have gone with this plugin in the first place, and we learned our lesson. This is an awesome and feature-packed membership plugin which has made this transition so much simpler than it could have been.
ElegantThemes – Our first theme was from ElegantThemes, it served us very well and got us up and running very quickly, if you are considering getting any themes check them out, especially with their jaw-dropping prices!
WooThemes – Aside from also making wonderful themes, we are still using a slightly modified version of FaultPress, which is a rock-solid and very useful app theme which helped us quickly set up a new and functional support area when our original BP/bbPress setup failed (not due to BP or bbPress, due to the membership plugin we originally went with). We’d recommend it to anyone needing this sort of thing.
This marks an exciting turning point for Events Manager, because it’s now time to shift most of our focus to doing what we enjoy doing the most and is also why we started this in the first place: making an awesome event plugin and adding exciting new features!
You can also expect more incremental changes to this site focused around providing you more helpful tips, tricks and documentation to build your event websites with Events Manager.
Bring on 2013, it’s going to be an interesting year!
