ThemeForest’s New Buddy: BuddyPress

Posted: 19 Oct 2011 05:00 AM PDT

ThemeForest is now accepting BuddyPress templates. If you’ve never heard of BuddyPress it’s a social networking system built on top of the WordPress platform. It allows you to build a social network for your company, school, sports team or niche community all based on the power and flexibility of WordPress. Totally open source, BuddyPress is built to bring groups of people together allowing them to communicate and interact together right inside your WordPress theme. Here are some examples of how BuddyPress can be used:

  • A campus wide social network for your university, school or college.
  • An internal communication tool for your company.
  • A niche social network for your interest topic.
  • A focused social network for your new product.

Several ThemeForest authors have already integrated BuddyPress into their WordPress themes and have had tremendous success with sales so far. So if you’re a WordPress designer/developer and you’re looking for a reason to create and sell a BuddyPress template, check out the following:

AudioJungle’s Thomas Vo Featured on Jackie Chan – 1911 Revolution – Trailer

Posted: 18 Oct 2011 08:00 PM PDT

I love hearing about stuff like this. From the forums I just found out that AudioJungle author ThomasVoMusic was featured in the trailer for 1911 The Revolution; a Jackie Chan movie all around the 1911 Xinhai Revolution.

I’ve loved Jackie since a friend took me to a midnight showing of Police Story. He told me this actor would blow my mind, and he did. So I’m especially pumped to see one of our authors give me a bit of six degrees of separation from one of my favorite actors.

The song chosen for the trailer was When Worlds Collide.

And here are some of my other favorite tunes from Thomas:

The Arrival

Game Over

Battle of Bremen


Congratulations Thomas!
