The framework update is free and can be found in the Themify panel (the number located at the bottom left corner of the Themify panel is your current framework version).

New Music Theme + Framework Redesign + Sale!

Exciting news from the Themify camp: we'd like to introduce Music, a theme with artists, musicians, managers, and app developers in mind. Responsive and retina ready, Music introduces fullwidth video backgrounds, embedded music players, and a slick design right out of the box.

In addition, we've been working on some behind-the-scenes projects in tandem with the Music theme: Builder and Themify panels have been completely redesigned, now including a Customize panel which allows for customization of the theme with a live preview from the frontend! Builder is also coming with new features like the aforementioned fullwidth video background, pre-designed Layouts, and a new feature called Layout Parts.

Music Theme

Music is a theme that brings art to life. Built for artists, musicians, and anything related to music, Music is responsive and retina ready out of the box. We've jam-packed it full of much-requested features (like fullwidth video backgrounds) and made the Builder more powerful to make it even easier to create truly unique and beautiful websites.

Themify Panel Redesigned

While developing Music, we wanted to improve the user experience of using and customizing your Themify themes. We've completely redesigned the Themify panel into a flat design with a cleaner interface, and increased the overall font size for better readability. In addition, we've made the panel completely responsive to work on any sized screens, and replaced all graphic images with Themify Icons font to increase load speeds and make less HTTP requests.

Builder Interface Redesigned

Not wanting to stop at just the Themify panel, we also redesigned the Builder interface. On a module hover, Builder now indicates what module is in use, and we minimized the interface borders and strokes to provide a more accurate preview of what you were designing.

New Customize Panel

Giving our users even more power, we built a new Customize panel that allows the customization of theme elements and options with live frontend previews. You can select over 600+ Google fonts, use the color picker with opacity support, upload background images, set padding/margins/borders, write custom CSS, and much more.

In addition, you can easily set menu navigation, set the widebar widgets, and change the front page option. Watch the video below to see it in action.

Changes Coming to Pricing Structure

The Themify team continues to be incredibly busy this year, more busy than ever in fact. We recently released our fantastic new theme called Fullpane and it has proven to be an incredible success with our existing and new customers alike. We couldn’t be more thrilled about this.

Our Themify Builder, which gives you the power to create and design your own layout by using drag and drop controls, continues to grow as we release new features with every Themify Framework update. We’ve listened to your feedback and we welcome it, so please keep sending it in.

We are very proud of what we release and we continue to work very hard bringing you more new themes, features and plugins to make it easier for you to build beautiful WordPress websites. Just look at the Themify Showcase to see what our customers are building.

To continue and maintain this level service and quality, Themify has made the business decision to increase prices as of March 1, 2014. It’s never nice when there is a price increase, but it means we can keep making all the things you’ve enjoy about Themify even better.

From March 1, 2014, the new pricing will be:

  • Standard Themes = $49
  • Developer Themes = $69
  • Standard Club = $79
  • Developer Club = $99
  • Builder Plugin = $49

We feel this is a reasonable and fair price increase as this allows us to procure more resources to continually release new themes and products as well as giving first class service.

One service Themify customers enjoy is our support. We strive to give the best support that we can, given the resources available. We are pleased to announce that we are extending our Monday to Friday support hours, in addition weekend support!

Our price increase gives us the resources needed for our incredible developers to add features and functions to our products with more frequency, like in our recent Framework 1.6.8 update. If there is a feature that you want us to include in an update, let us know either on the Forums or via contact us.

Themify is committed in bringing you beautifully designed themes and products, superb support, fantastic customer service and great value for money. If you have any concerns or questions around the price increase, please don’t hesitate to contact us or comment on this post below.
