Happy New Year to all of you! 2015 has just begun and we at Themebound have already had a very busy January with our two new plugins going live on the AppThemes Marketplace:
ACF :: Smart Tags Plugin for ClassiPress
ACF :: Smart Tags Plugin for ClassiPress
The plugin will let you convert all multiple choice fields in your ClassiPress powered website like drop-down, checkbox and radio into ad tags, so you only have relevant ad tags that you yourself have created in the form of field values. Also turning the right kind of fields into tags will give your site a big SEO advantage!

Related Stores Plugin for Clipper
The Related Stores plugin for Clipper WordPress coupon theme lets you suggest similar stores to your visitors on the store and coupon pages in a sidebar widget. An extra widget gets created that can be placed in the “Store Sidebar” and “Coupon Sidebar” which will show a list of stores related to the current store by category.

Hello folks! It has been quite a while since I have written to you. ClassiPress 3.3.2 is out and we have been busy creating another child theme. The new FlatPress classified theme is modelled on our very successful Flatter child theme for Clipper coupon theme. It is only a matter of time before AppThemes release it on their marketplace and it becomes an instant hit. Click here to check out the details, demo and screenshots!
Also with the new ClassiPress update, we have been checking our products for compatibility and providing useful additions. We have updated the following products, so if you are using the latest ClassiPress and any of the below, please make sure you update your plugin/child theme by logging into My Account are of the website.
Just as we promised last week, we have released a major update to Dynamic Multi-Level Fields plugin with a host of improvements. To update, please download the new version 1.4 from “My Account” page. Below is the summary of enhancements as detailed in the previous blog post:
- Made compatible with Advanced Custom Fields for ClassiPress
- Sidebar widget added
- Made drop down interface AJAX powered
- Made compatible with WordPress 3.6 and ClassiPress 3.3.1
- More settings added for localisation of labels
- Behind the scenes enhancements
- Bugs fixed
The weather may be indifferent in many parts of the world, while some are enjoying the sun, it is a very special day nevertheless. We are close to completing a major update to Dynamic Multi-Level Fields plugin, the most complete multi-region solution for ClassiPress, so you and your users have a much smoother experience!
Arguably the best part of the update is that it is now compatible with the excellent plugin Advanced Custom Fields for ClassiPress by Artem Frolov. There was a lot of demand for it and we have listened. Now ad custom fields linked to the user profile fields via the ACF plugin will automatically be populated in the multi-level drop downs on “Post an Ad” page.
But the goodness does not end here. We are now using AJAX to load the multi-level options in lower level drop downs based on values selected in the top level drop downs, so the pages load quicker and no unwanted data gets loaded. We have also added more settings to the plugin options page so all visible text on the front end can be localised from the admin back end itself. The new version will soon be tested with the latest development version of ClassiPress and WordPress 3.6 release candidate, so you will probably not have to update it again when we have the final release of ClassiPress 3.3.1 and WordPress 3.6. There is also a surprise in store for those who are thinking of purchasing Dynamic Multi-Level fields, but you shall find out in the next blog post announcing the release of Version 1.4!
Our other multi-region plugins for ClassiPress, the Statify Ultimate and Citify Ultimate plugins have both been updated to version 1.5.6 to address a bug with blog display. Please download the update from “My Accounts” page if you are running any of these plugins.
Summer is here! ClassiPress is responsive! Vantage was already! JobRoller will soon be! All Themebound products are selling at 20% off until the end of June! Good news just keeps on coming. Instructions in the box below:
Here are some of the products the discount applies to:
AppThemes have recently announced the release of the much improved ClassiPress 3.3. It is another major release that has seen many new features, which will impact every child theme of ClassiPress out there, including the ones in the AppThemes Marketplace. The biggest improvement being that the theme has gone fully responsive, and now uses their efficient Payments API to handle the payments. The built in coupons functionality has been removed to make way for the AppThemes Coupons plugin which works with all the themes that use the Payments API.
As usual, we have had our work cut out updating our products to work with the new version of ClassiPress, and we are almost done ensuring you can download a compatible version of your products with minimum fuss. If you have purchased Sticky on Top Plugin, you will not need to update it because these work with ClassiPress 3.3 already.
The child themes ClassiClean and ClassiEstate are fully responsive now. All other child themes and plugins have been or are being made responsive as well. If you have purchased any of the following products, then the good news is that a new version compatible with ClassiPress 3.3 is already available.
A quick reminder though, four of our ClassiPress products listed above are now sold exclusively on AppThemes Marketplace, and if any of these were purchased on Themebound.com, you will find the new version to download in the “My Account” page with all the other resident products you have purchased. Products bought via the Marketplace can be updated from the download available from the AppThemes dashboard.
The ClassiAlerts plugin is being updated, not only to be made compatible with the most recent version of ClassiPress, but also to introduce double opt-in and a couple of minor improvements. The Statify child theme will be updated very soon as well, so keep an eye on both of these!
(26-04-2013) : The highlight on the Featured Ultimate plugin stopped working on ClassiPress 3.3, the plugin had been previously stated to work as is. This was pointed out by J Davey and has been corrected and a new version (1.0.2) of the plugin is available now from the My Account page. The ClassiAlerts plugin has also been updated to version 1.3 and made available with many improvements! Also, for users of JobRoller, our Multi-City JR plugin is now compatible with the JobRoller 1.7.
(10-05-2013) : The Statify child theme is now responsive and compatible with ClassiPress 3.3. That completes the full set. Enjoy!
We recently finished an interesting development project for a site which matches nannies and babysitters with families in Singapore. It’s called Find a Nanny and is targeted only at the Singapore market. It is uses the Classipress theme from AppThemes, but the owner requested some interesting modifications to make it easy for nannies and families to find each other.
The first mod is the “Nanny Map” which shows the location of all nannies, babysitters and families who have registered on the site. Each info balloon on the map is hyperlinked to that person’s classified ad on the site. This makes it easy for visitors to see who is nearby. The Nanny Map nicely complements the ClassiPress built-in Google map which only shows one location at a time. The Nanny Map is the second most visited page – after the home page – on the site.
Although all advertisers may post ads for free, the site owner requested that the contact details of nannies can only be seen by logged-in families who have upgraded their account by making a payment. It is similar for nannies, they can post an ad for free, but can only see the contact details of families after they have signed up to a relatively inexpensive subscription with a one month’s free trial.
Families will never be able to see contact details of other families, even after payment, nor will nannies be able to see the details of other nannies. Anybody who has not made a payment or signed up for a subscription will not be able to see anybody’s contact details. This added level of privacy gives users the extra confidence they they may need to register on the site, and already a number of well-known local celebrities have registered, found a nanny and left, well under the radar of the local gossip columns.
Find a Nanny was an interesting development project and it goes to show what a powerful and useful combination WordPress and ClassiPress can be, especially if it is custom tweaked to give added functionality.

WordPress 3.5 is out finally and the new release brings us the much publicised changes to the media library section, and the removal of the Links Manager. Without going into too much detail, AppThemes have started releasing updates to all their themes which make them compatible with WordPress 3.5, starting with ClassiPress 3.2.1. The new version of ClassiPress has a couple of major changes within, which although not apparent from outside, require almost all the products to be updated again (so soon after going through the ordeal of updating them for ClassiPress 3.2!).
As usual, we have been keeping the pace with this new update and all our products now work with the new version of ClassiPress, you can download a compatible version of your products with minimum fuss. Two of our plugins work with ClassiPress 3.2.1 as is, and the rest of the products have been updated already:

AppThemes have finally announced the release of the much anticipated ClassiPress 3.2 last night. It is a major release that has seen the introduction of wrappers, which will impact every child theme of ClassiPress out there, including the ones in the AppThemes Marketplace. They have brought back the option to set the number of columns in category lists by popular demand. The login and registration pages now have their own templates, so it will be easy to customise them, and the unpleasant and (ever-growing) footer menu can now be set as a custom menu. Elsewhere, the author page has been updated to display ads in a nice list, tabbed alongside the blog posts, and the re-listing procedure has been improved to make a lot more sense.
As usual, we have been busy updating our products to work with the new version of ClassiPress, and we are almost done ensuring you can download a compatible version of your products with minimum fuss. Three of our plugins work with ClassiPress 3.2 as is, and bar one, the rest of the products have been updated already:

Today we are launching an exciting new product, a plugin for ClassiPress called Dynamic Multi-Level Fields, which is probably the most complete multi-region solution yet for ClassiPress. The decision to create the plugin came at the back of some good deliberation, which prompted us to discuss the idea on the AppThemes forum thread available here. A lot of people registered their interest which then helped us decide to go for it.
