With the December holiday season quickly approaching, the staff and administration of several theme companies are coming up with discounted deals as they look to attract customers and head into the New Year with momentum. One of those firms is Obox Design, a template and plugin company that has vastly extended its product portfolio this year; adding more premium downloads.
Obox currently has nearly three dozen themes in its inventory that range from personal blog and magazine platforms to all-out online retail and multimedia themes. During this past year, the vast majority of Obox releases have been commercially available for the standard license price of $60 for two custom built items. However, from now through January 3, 2013, the WordPress theme designer is promoting its Christmas Super Pack special, which includes one blog theme, one portfolio template and an e-Commerce product plus access to all plugins for $40 (single site license). This Christmas Bundle is also available in a Developer’s pack for $80, with the difference being the addition of Photoshop files and Obox Mobile.
Specific Themes Apply
There are a limited number of themes that apply to this specific promotion. For example, the list of personal or professional blog templates to choose from includes Azione, Gigawatt, Handmade, mag.Press, and Principles. The applicable portfolio-driven downloads are Ambition, Carousel, Knead, Picks and Photolist, while the online retail theme list is made up of Ambition, CleanSale, Gigawatt e-Commerce, Handmade e-Commerce, and Kiosk.
Obox’s recent blog post tell customers “2012 has been a whirlwind and we’ve moved in leaps and bounds to become a better company for you. We’ll talk more about our past year and even more about next year in an upcoming blog post. Christmas is almost here and to celebrate we’ve decided to pack a gigantic Christmas punch in to our special offer which caters for everyone!
From everyone at Obox, thank you so much for being a part of this amazing year. Next year we have big things planned, however, for now we invite you to enjoy the holidays with our special.”
Obox Theme Features
Those who are familiar with one or more Obox Design products already know that they are compatible with WordPress versions 3.0 and higher. This includes the most recent launch of WordPress 3.5 Elvin. Widgetized homepages are a standard feature when you buy Obox themes, which means a large number of sidebar and footer regions to insert custom widgets that enhance your site’s ability to advertise, link to important content areas and conduct social media sharing.
Different color schemes are also possible with most of the Obox downloads, and changing from one to the other is something that can be done from the Control Panel without touching any code. Multimedia themes offer different view port sizes along with the option to post videos in SD and HD versions. Custom page templates can be selected from the right-hand menu whenever you are creating or editing a page, which makes it easy to designate a separate portfolio or blog page.
Obox Mobile Plugin
The Obox Mobile Plugin is included in any premium theme plan and works as a method for converting your template into a mobile-friendly platform. This is done by making your website’s content adjustable when it comes to visitors who are browsing using a mobile device such as a smart phone. Tablet computer view comfort is also taken under consideration with this plugin, meaning Obox Mobile will basically turn any theme you purchase from the company into a responsive item.
The Android, Blackberry and iPhone devices are all included, as are tablets such as iPads. The actual plugin installation is a simple process that takes only a few moments to complete.
