Pro Theme Design and Mimbo Pro

The last couple of months I have been spending my free time working on a new website and premium theme.

The website is called Pro Theme Design, and the theme is Mimbo Pro.

Pro Theme Design

Pro Theme Design is a WordPress theme blog and premium theme store. You will be able to purchase premium themes and read tips on developing themes all in one spot. Yes, there’s paid stuff but I also intend to give away freebies, for example I have also created an icon set, which I will be distributing via Pro Theme Design.

Mimbo Pro

At the start of the year I knew I would be making the Pro Theme Design website, and I thought it would be cool to work with other developers on the themes. The first person I thought to contact was Darren Hoyt, the developer of incredibly successful Mimbo.

We have been working together to develop the theme ever since I got back from California, adding features never before used in a WordPress theme. The initial theme design was completed in a matter of weeks, but the following month or so was spent tweaking, tidying, and polishing until we were both happy. We think the theme is awesome, and well worth the small amount of money we’re asking for it.

My work was mostly back end and programming, sorting out the control panel options and adding new features to make things more dynamic. Darren did all design duties, and then I got the Pro Theme website, and forum up and running. I even went as far as getting a VPS (Virtual Private Server) to speed things up and take some of the strain off of my overburdened Dreamhost account. When I get a chance I will be transitioning my other sites over to the VPS as well.

If you’re interested in a quality WordPress theme then you can read more about it here, view the live Mimbo Pro demo, and buy it now.

BTW If anybody is interested in making some pocket money we have an affiliate scheme in place.

Was it good/ useful/ a load of old rubbish? Let me know on Mastodon, or BlueSky (or Twitter X if you must).
