Sometimes it takes time, in this case it has taken quite a bit. We had to drag Paul Simpson back out of mothballs to get the update moving in a forward direction that was even worth mentioning. This is better news than it sounds since before we were not even past the decision making point of what kind of changes would be made. We took a heavy hit when we got nothing for our coding investment and had to start again with the leftovers of unfinished code from the previous programmer. Though there still is not a release date, trust me when I say that the changes will be more to everyone’s desires. The theme is going through a full bottoms-up overhaul in it’s functionality. The ever popular theme templates that have made Remix so exciting will remain as the themes primary benefit but how the theme works from a WordPress “Admin Panel” will change dramatically. There will be improvements beyond just the theme options panel in the dashboard but I am not at liberty to discuss them currently. As WordPress has evolved so have themes and the way they work. Though many themes work differently, there are certain trends and expectations that most people are gravitating toward. We have adopted many of these pseudo standards observed in many popular themes. I will be posting more later as info becomes more freely available to speak about. The mere fact that I have made this post gives me hope, so hang in there.
Stay posted, as we will when the time comes be looking for a few select people to serve themselves up as guinea pigs for our Beta testing. It is still early but we are definitely moving forward once again.
