by Jean. 97 Comments -

Did you noticied that some days ago, Cats Who Code gets a new design? To celebrate 6 months of successful blogging, I’m very happy to announce our Christmas contest: Win 3 premium WordPress themes coutesy of John Kolbert.

Introducing MyHomePro

My friend and talentuous designer John Kolbert just created MyHomePro, a new Premium WordPress theme. To celebrate MyHomePro launch as well as Cats Who Code first 6 months of existence, John and me decided to run a contest and give away 3 copies of MyHomePro for free. But before I get into the contest details, let’s take a look at the MyHomePro theme.
Here’s some of the possibilities of MyHomePro:

  • Compatible from WordPress 2.5 to WordPress 2.7
  • Share your online life! Custom admin interface to show your Diggs, Flickr photos, Tweets, and many many more!
  • Styled comments created for threaded and paged comments in WordPress 2.7! Automatically adjusts to the legacy comments for earlier versions!
  • Widget Ready Widget-ready sidebar and a custom coded footer for displaying your online activity. Simply beautiful!
  • Fluid or Fixed Width Templates Purchase the fluid or fixed width templates to meet your own needs.
  • Beautiful Code! W3C valid code designed using a minimalist approach. Tabless CSS makes customizations a breeze!
  • Standard Blog or Custom Homepage: MyHome Pro comes pre-built with a custom homepage that you can use to show off your profile picture, biographical information, recent posts and advertisements. Want a standard blog home page showing just your recent posts and a sidebar? No problem. It’s all included!
  • Very easy to customize: Due to its clean code, MyHomePro it’s very easy to change color, layout, fonts, etc.

  • Dmitri Zatona

    Hello 2 everyone :)

    Just want to ask — maybe it will be interesting for you. What do you think, $50 for premium WP theme it’s a little fee or not? Let me know please. I’m asking about that because i’d like to create some :)

    I can create themes that are really cool and they are better then more on the market. Just trying to understand can i make money on that or not )

    Thank you!

  • http://www.wprecipes.com Jean-Baptiste Jung

    @Dmitri: If the theme is really good, $50 isn’t that expensive. If quality is here, you’re sure to make money. If you create themes, contact me to organize a contest and spread the word about your themes!

    The new MyHome template looks great. I think contests like this are a good idea because this thread actually has a lot of very nice designs linked from it, like the ones from SE7EN & Rarst. I had to bookmark this so I can come back and check out all the other designs. I’d love to see a full list of all the entries, :)
