Holiday Half-Off Special Offer

on Dec 06 in Promotions, Zidalgo News by Admin

Thanksgiving has come and gone (at least it has here in the US) and Christmas is right around the corner. What better gift can you give than a premium WordPress theme from Zidalgo? Okay, maybe a WordPress theme won’t make a great gift since you can’t really wrap it or stuff it in stockings. What you can do though is check off the item on your 2010 to-do list that says something along the lines of “Update my website with a better design.”

Well, now is your chance to mark off that to-do item by taking advantage of our Holiday Half-Off Special Offer. All themes are discounted by at least 50%. Get them while you can!

We wish you and your loved ones a safe and happy holiday season!

Lot’s of changes coming to Zidalgo!

on Feb 16 in Premium Wordpress Themes, Zidalgo News, wordpress themes by Admin

First of all, I would like to apologize for the lack of updates to our blog. We will be keeping this up to date for now on. I would also like to take this time to thank all of our loyal customers. Your comments are much appreciated!

So, what’s going on at Zidalgo?

New Host (again):

For one, we are moving the site and demo sites to a new server. This should be completed within a couple days from now, and we do not expect any downtime in the process. If you do see a problem however, please report it to us and we will be ever so grateful.

More premium themes on the way!

We are in the process of creating three new themes. One is approved and is in the process of being whipped up into a premium WordPress theme as I type this. We are very excited about the new theme because it is designed so that it can be used on just about any type of site (blog, or business). I will create a new post for this theme and include some screenshots in the very near future. Stay tuned!

New Helpdesk system:

Customer support via the forum has it’s place and we still plan on using it. However, we feel that there is a need for a full ticket based helpdesk system for escalated issues in regards to actual bugs that may be found in our themes, or support for paid work that we do for customers who want us to modify their themes for them. We also plan on offering live support through a live support chat system called UserInteract.com.

That’s all for now. Please check back for more premium wordpress themes and updates!

“Auto-Update” your wordpress themes?

on Nov 25 in General Wordpress by Admin

Recently we’ve considered adding an ‘auto-update’ function to our wordpress themes, allowing users to instantly update the template files to their theme. However this proposes many concerns. Primarily, user-modification of their template. Just like a plugin, if you modify it, then update it, you’ll lose any custom edits you did to the actual files.

Currently, our demographic of customers, who are web developers themselves, would not find this feature useful I don’t think. Infact, without proper disclaimers on the update feature, it could be disastrous. Currently our updates are posted through our client newsletter, or forums. Updates are usually sent as individual file or code snippet replacements. Though few and far between, sometimes they can be important if Wordpress decided to change anything about its templating system.

So I ask this, what is the best way you want to receive wordpress theme updates as a customer?
