Offline credit card payment plugin preview

We’d like to show the first preview of our upcoming Offline credit card payment plugin. This plugin is useful when you only want to collect credit card info (not process/capture it) and store it for manual processing later. This new plugin will be compatible with our upcoming 0.8.0 release.

Solidres for WordPress development plan announcement

Solidres for Joomla and WordPress

As requested by many Solidres users, we’d like to announce our development plan to support WordPress. Please find some details below:

1. When will it be released?
Our plan is to introduce the first public release in January 2015. Please note that this is estimated and not a fixed plan.

2. Will it a true WordPress plugin or just a bridge/hack solution?
Our development best practice is to provide true and native experience for our users. For Joomla we provide a true Joomla extension and it will continue to be the same for WordPress: a true WordPress plugin that fully integrate with WordPress API, written in WordPress way and follow WordPress coding standard, no bridge, no hack, no custom installation procedure.

3. Will themes and commercial plugins ready by Jan 2015?
It depends on the actual progress at that time, our highest priority is the Free version, we have to put all of our concentration to have a solid foundation before we can work on commercial plugins and themes.

4. Does it affect the development of Solidres for Joomla?
Absolutely not, Joomla remains our favorite CMS and focal development point.

5. Will Solidres for Joomla and WordPress share the same features set?
Yes, but not at the same time because it takes time for the Solidres for WordPress version to catch up with Solidres for Joomla version.

All the things you need to make your work easier. Did you like Solidres?
