Updated demo, new Pro trial site!
Posted on October 9, 2012
For those of you wanting to see EM and EM Pro in action, check out our newly updated demo site which has undergone a small face-lift.
The first, most obvious thing is the theme… we’ve gone and installed the latest Twenty Twelve theme which will be available by default on WordPress 3.5 and is already available on the theme repo. As usual, the WP theme design team have outdone themselves!
Additionally, we’ve added more custom forms and form fields for people to show some of our recently added features as well as including our new Attendee Fields feature which is still in Alpha, but can already be enabled in the latest update.
Another cool thing is that we’ve added sandbox PayPal and Authorize.net accounts and set them up so it’s easy to make test transactions with dummy accounts and see the exact booking process from a customer’s point of view! Authorize.net requires no extra steps, just a fake card number as seen when booking, PayPal unfortunately does require that you register at their dev site and create a test account.
Alongside all this, you’ll see more explanations regarding the functionality, and eventually we hope to add a ‘how we made this’ page so that you can see every change we made to the default settings (which aren’t that many) to make this site look like it does.
Last but not least, for those of you wanting to try out EM and/or Pro, check out our new trial site and take it for a free 7 day spin!
This will be the start of some major changes that we’ll be rolling out over the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more!
