Recent project updates Breaking down the projects I've been actively working on these last few months

Since late last year I’ve been hard at work on various development projects. While I’ve spent time blogging about each of them here, I haven’t updated the posts with new details about each of the projects.

This post is aiming to do that.

WP Dispensary

This has been my biggest focus the last couple of months. What started in November of last year has quickly turned into a pet project with the potential of growing into a full fledged business.

Since I first blogged about WP Dispensary here, I’ve released two new versions (1.2 and 1.3 respectively).

I’ve also open sourced the Dispensary Display theme that was built and originally for sale through the WP Dispensary website. Updates are coming to this theme in the next week or two, enhancing it further. Continue readingRecent project updates Breaking down the projects I’ve been actively working on these last few months

Slackedd WordPress plugin that sends sale notifications from Easy Digital Downloads to Slack

Towards the end of last year, I tweeted that I was working on something with the Easy Digital Downloads payment success function, and today I am able to share the fruits of that labor.

Slackedd WordPress plugin

Receive notification through Slack when you make a sale with Easy Digital Downloads.

Slackedd lets your wish come true, without having to log into your WordPress dashboard. Continue readingSlackedd WordPress plugin that sends sale notifications from Easy Digital Downloads to Slack

Peddle Free WordPress theme for Easy Digital Downloads

Pushing your product online is about to get a lot easier.

Today I am releasing my newest WordPress theme, Peddle, into the wild.

It’s a free WordPress theme that fully integrates with the Easy Digital Downloads plugin, which lets you (surprise, surprise) sell your digital products online through your own website.

Why the name Peddle? I chose the name Peddle for two reasons.

First, because Easy Digital Downloads abbreviates itself as EDD, and I wanted a theme name that had EDD in it.

Second, because of the definition of the word Peddle and how well it fits the theme of an online store.

Building this theme was actually a lot of fun because I was able to move past the regular blog theme setup and expand my knowledge of how WordPress works even further.

Plus, I have a website that I’m working on that I need EDD integration for (more on this later), so I was kind of scratching my own itch here. Continue readingPeddle Free WordPress theme for Easy Digital Downloads
