Hello to all the fans
we have exciting news about our loved WordPress Project Bidding Theme! We just released an important and consistent update for this theme. Along with this update, our theme has become a benchmark when it comes for freelancer scripts, or bidding websites. The plans for the near future with the project theme are so big, that you will be amazed on the potential this theme has. Read below the list of updates we have prepared for you in v1.3.5 of the new Project Theme.
User Types Enhanced
The already known user separation was introduces since v1.3.0 but we felt that something was missing from this picture. Was a panel for the admin user to check all the user and control their types: service provider, or service contractor. The new update brings this new admin panel integrated straight into your wp-admin backend. You will be able to change the user type of any member of your website with a click of a button (the action is ajaxified). This new tool also allows you to easily search the userbase for a certain username.
New Hooks and Actions/Filters
Better than ever, the project theme, has introduced yet more hooks around the theme files. So now you have even more control over the structure and the looks of your child themes. We strongly recommend that any change you want to bring to the theme to be made through a child theme. This way you keep the parent theme (the project theme) unchanged and ready for a future update. The updates wont get you anymore head aches if you follow this recipe.
You will also find a complete list of filters and hooks in our documentation area and very soon you will see video tutorials on how to use these hooks more efficiently. Stay tuned for more goodies with the project theme this fall.
Last Bugs Ironed Out
We have spent countless hours testing the theme during last 2 weeks, and we have achieved a great thing: we ironed a lot of tiny bugs out. Still everytime is room for improvement and we are constantly improving the theme functions, and innovating to the community’s benefit. You will find below the list of all bugs fixed with this update.
Exciting New Stuff For The Future
For the next few weeks, we have prepared you even more good news. First we plan to keep this stream of updates, one every 2 weeks or 3 weeks. Secondly, we want to bring new features to the theme: we are already working on a extra payment gateways module, a mobile version module/extension, an affiliate extension, and integrate a custom form builder for user registration(currently can be done with a plugin). We are also going to modify the licenses for the theme, will make 2 types: basic and professional, and the professional version will have all these extensions included. The equivalent of professional version is the extra developer license we currently have for the project theme (costs $199). But more on this in a few weeks.
