We have received a lot of inquiries about the status of our Drupal themes and Drupal 7. I posted an update last month on the status of our themes for Drupal 7 and stated that we would begin releasing Drupal 7 themes in August. Well I am happy to announce our first Drupal 7 theme - Crystalline.
I'm happy to inform that all of the directory-naming issues are now resolved, and that it's again safe to use the WordPress updater to update your version of the Gantry Plugin. From now on every time we release the new version of the Gantry plugin, it will be added to the WordPress.org plugins directory so everyone can easily stay up-to-date.
We recently discovered that one of our web-servers was misconfigured and was not sending emails from the "contact form" to our mail system. This went unnoticed for several weeks because the other web-servers were configured properly, and we were getting the majority of mail that was sent. However, this means that some email was not sent properly, and only now have we received them en-masse.
A couple of days ago we were notified about a SQL injection security vulnerability in our Ajax-enabling RokModule extension. This extensions is generally not used by itself, but rather it enables Ajax for the following extensions for both Joomla 1.5 and 1.7:
We have been receiving lots of emails, facebook comments, and questions on the forum related to our plans for Joomla 1.5, and the upcoming release of Joomla 2.5. I thought I would take this opportunity to reiterate the planned Joomla releases cycle and our stance on supporting them.
We have been running our Drupal themes club for nearly two years now and have worked diligently to bring our club and community formula to Drupal. During that time we have striven to take the RocketTheme philosophy of great designs, oodles of features, and a great community, all at reasonable price and make that available to this fantastic platform. However, we have to be cognizant of the ever-changing market and also our own business strategy, and so it is with a sad heart that we have decided to “sunset” this club from RocketTheme. Drupal is a powerful and complex CMS that requires a lot of manpower to develop for and support it. We had hoped that over time that the Drupal club would grow and become self-sustainable but we have not seen that happen and we can not keep it running indefinitely.
What makes this such a powerful extension is that it has been built to be highly plug-able with the ability to support almost any data source. At launch we plan to include Joomla, K2, ZOO and Seblod CCKs, with more platforms being added in future releases. Alongside the plug-able platform capability, the layouts such as Tabs, Features, Headlines, and Lists, and specific themes for these layouts can easily be added via site templates.
Since the release of Joomla 2.5 there has been a particularly annoying “duplicate template” bug that becomes clearly evident when you install or update a template. As our primary business involves templates, and as a result the vast majority of our users install templates, this has caused a great deal of confusion and consternation among our users.
