Saying Goodbye To The Cobalt Apps Community Forum For Good

I know, this makes what, like 3 Cobalt Apps forums that I’ve gone through in the past few years. It’s true. But in my defense I’ve not only run into forum software issues that have made it difficult to provide a reliable solution for online discussion, but more than that it’s been less and less useful with the continued growth of popular social media communities that seem to be the preferred place for this kind of interaction.

Lifetime License Flash Sale Extended 24 Hours!

To allow more people to participate in our Cobalt Apps Lifetime License Weekend Flash Sale I’ve extended it by 24 hours. I’ve received numerous questions from Cobalt Apps members to help them determine the best lifetime solution for their needs, and extending the sale a bit will help me more fully address these informational requests. So if you have any questions just shoot us an email, and if you just need a little more time to make an informed decision, now you’ve got it!

Lifetime License Weekend Flash Sale!

This past year has ushered in quite a few notable updates, additions, and overall refinements to our Cobalt Apps WP DEV Tool lineup. From new Plugins, to new Dynamik Skins, to notable product updates, the Cobalt Apps Theme and Plugin lineup has only gotten better and stronger. And from time to time I like to sweeten the deal even more by offering a large discount (35% to be exact) for lifetime license purchases. These include both new product purchases and lifetime upgrades as well. This means that you can upgrade a product to either that product’s lifetime license or go all-in with All Access Lifetime, and receive a discount for the difference of that product, and then use this flash sale’s discount code to get an even better deal!

Why I Hated NodeJS, Gulp, And Sass, And What I’m Doing About It

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to tout yourself as a true “Pro” in the WordPress web development scene without some form of contact with these NodeJS powered package managers, task managers, and build tools. We’ve gone from debating our favorite code editors to arguing over which CSS pre-processor is king. Life was so much easier when all we had to deal with was a simple folder filled with CSS, PHP, and JS files. Or at least that’s what it feels like until you realize you’re being left behind, pining over the best practices of 2012.

Comparing Our Products Just Got A Lot Easier

Over the past few years we’ve really branched out in terms of the WordPress Frameworks we support with our Themes and Plugins and just the overall WP DEV Tools we provide our members. And in this time we’ve received requests to offer some kind of comparison chart to make it a bit easier to determine which tools are best suited for your particular needs.

So today I’m excited to share with you a Cobalt Apps Product Comparison Chart that will hopefully clear up any future confusion when potential customers are making up their minds over all that we offer. So be sure to check it out by clicking HERE and let us know if you have any questions or comments below that might guide us making it even more helpful to our visitors.

Individual Lifetime Licenses Are Now Available!

I’m excited to announce that we now offer lifetime licenses for all of our current Cobalt Apps products! The All Access Lifetime license, which includes access to ALL of our products, current and future, has been available for quite some time now, but now you can purchase lifetime licenses for individual products as well. This means, for example, that if you use our Dynamik Website Builder theme for a lot of your DEV projects, but maybe don’t currently have a need for ALL of our tools, you can now purchase (or upgrade to, in this case) Dynamik Website Builder Lifetime. This will give you a Dynamik license that provides support and updates for the life of the theme, with no more need to renew a yearly subscription. This can be especially useful in cases where you use one of our tools for client sites where you know you’ll be leaving that tool on their site, but don’t want to have to worry about renewing your license each year so they can continue to receive updates.

Genesis DevKit: The Ultimate Genesis Child Theme Development Plugin

That’s a BIG claim, I know, and not one I take lightly. Genesis is one of the most prominent and trusted WP Theme Frameworks out there today with a massive following of both users and 3rd party developers. I’ve been one of such developers for several years now and am keenly aware of the needs of both newcomers and seasoned freelancers alike. It’s a passion of mine, if not a bit of an obsession. 🙂 Read more “Genesis DevKit: The Ultimate Genesis Child Theme Development Plugin”

Introducing The Freelancer DevKit Plugin

If you’re at all familiar with my products then you know that I try to find a solid balance between “user-friendly” and “best-practices”. My goal is generally to provide tools that make WordPress Web Development more accessible to a larger set of users, while at the same time keeping the end results professional and high quality. I always keep in mind the fact that there’s a good chance that either a business or a client will be on the other end of what our members produce with our tools. So anything less that top-notch is unacceptable. Read more “Introducing The Freelancer DevKit Plugin”
