*Updated Plugin* To Do List

After languishing in the Plugin repository for almost three years the To Do List Plugin has finally been updated! In fact it has been completely rewritten and is now fully compatible with the latest version of WordPress (3.4 at the time of writing).

This major update is pretty much what I had in mind for the original version of the Plugin. So, what’s new?

*New Plugin* Config Constants

Most people never need to edit the WordPress constants in wp-config.php but if you do then up until now there was no alternative but to edit the file manually.

However, the Config Constants Plugin changes this by allowing you to modify a select set of WordPress constants directly from the WordPress admin!

The Plugin options page looks like this:

You can only modify constants that are already defined in wp-cofig.php so you remain in full control of your configuration file at all times.

What Motivates Us?

Well that’s an excellent question! What does motivate us to keep on developing great WordPress themes and provide dedicated support for all our users?

There are many factors really but one of the most satisfying reasons is getting positive customer feedback. Whilst many of our customers thank us in the forums for getting timely help with their sites, one recent message stood out in particular.

Jan, and Ingvild, from Peppy Fitness e-mailed us specifically to thank us for helping them get their site up and running. You can check out the great work they have done on their site here, which is based on our FitPro theme.

The e-mail we received from Jan, and Ingvild, was as follows:

Dear Scott and David,

Our website has now been up and running for a while with the Fitpro theme. The major hurdles have been passed, and we can now enjoy adding posts and pages without spending too much time on technical details (although we do have do upgrade to the new version soon).

So, we would like to take the opportunity to thank you both for your outstanding help and patience and quick response time while we were setting up our site over the past months. We’re very pleased and feel we have been in the good hands of two very skilled people (and their team).

We’ve had many questions, and you’ve always answered professionally to the most unprofessional of questions :-).

Thank you for making it so easy for us to recommend your services and themes to others!

Kind regards,
Jan Helge and Ingvild Ostensen

This sort of feedback is exactly what motivates us to get out of bed in the morning and to continue developing awesome themes! So, many thanks for the kind words Jan, we really appreciate it. Good luck with your site in the future and you know where we are if you need any further help!😉

There’s some great stuff in the blog, including how to reuse the post editor in WordPress 3.3. Release candidate 1 was just released, so read up now.

We get a lot of questions about switching hosting, pointing domains to a new server, etc., so we made a video to make things clearer.


Charity: Water

We are excited to announce that from here on out we will be donating a portion of every sale to charity: water.

They are a fantastic organization that brings clean water to impoverished villages in Africa. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects.

You are welcome to donate to our campaign, or just feel good knowing that when buying a Press Coders theme you are also contributing to a good cause.

The reason we chose charity: water is because almost 1 billion people don’t have clean water.

It is the essential building block for progress: without it you can’t have better education, better jobs, less hunger, or real development of any kind.

Check out this video, or check out our campaign page to donate.
