Two Versions of Vigilance?

By Drew Strojny on February 12, 2009

First 50 are Going Fast!

First some great news. We have already sold through over half of the 50 for 50% off PRO memberships in the first 48 hours! Thanks for all of the awesome support from the Vigilance community, we really appreciate it!

If you plan on grabbing a PRO membership now is a great time, we will be surprised if the remaining 50% off PRO memberships last to the weekend. Don’t forget to use the coupon code 6CA27 when you sign-up to get the discount. Sold Out.

Two Versions of Vigilance?

There was a really good question in the comments that we thought deserved some clarification. We don’t want the Vigilance community to misinterpret the PRO Membership offering.

I’ve just started using your theme, and so far I have been very impressed. While the PRO version sounds great, what are the future plans for the free version? Will it be left by the wayside and just the PRO version be developed in future?

We want to assure you that there is only one “version” of Vigilance and it is and always will be free and open source.

Referring to a “free version” and “PRO version” is misleading. PRO members and regular users both download the latest version of Vigilance from the same location. PRO members simply get a slew of added benefits: full access to the support forums, unlimited theme support, priority upgrades, tutorials, customization tips, members only add-ons, and other cool stuff. They do not download a different version of Vigilance.

We hope this clears things up. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any other questions or comments.

Vigilance 1.22 and PRO Membership

By Drew Strojny on February 10, 2009

We have some exciting news to announce. Vigilance 1.22 has been released and we are now offering a PRO Membership with the following benefits:

  • Members only forum
  • Unlimited theme support
  • Priority upgrades
  • Comprehensive theme tutorials
  • Killer customization tips
  • Logo Pack: Your logo in the header!

PRO Memberships are being offered at an introductory price of $39 and to kick it off we are offering a 50% discount coupon to the first 50 members to sign up! That’s just $19.50!

Sign-up now with the coupon code 6CA27 to receive your discount. Sold Out.

Why PRO Membership?

We felt it was time to start offering “real” support and premium upgrades to Vigilance users that need help and/or want power features. Vigilance has been supported in the comments until now, but as the users grew a more robust solution became necessary. That put us in a predicament, we didn’t have time for a more robust “free” solution, and if we were going to support Vigilance, we wanted to do it right.

We also realized support can be a big problem when choosing an open source theme. You always wonder: Will the developer be around to help if something goes wrong or if I have questions? Most users feel comfortable downloading a theme if they know they will have someone to turn to when they have a problem or just need some help. PRO membership gives users that “safety net” and allows us to offer robust support and premium upgrades to those users that want it.

Just the Beginning

We will continue to add PRO Membership benefits as time goes on. We are planning to release more free themes, including one very soon. PRO Members will receive support for all current and future Jestro Themes as part of their membership. Consider your PRO membership an investment that will grow as we release more themes, features, and benefits.

Feedback

If you have any thoughts about this exciting news feel free to leave a comment. We would love to hear your feedback.

Update: Vigilance 1.22 Features

Forgot to include the new Vigilance 1.22 features in the original post. Here they are:

  • Cleaned up the Theme Options menu and added a PRO member option for a logo in the header.
  • Tweaked the copyright notice in the head meta to say “Theme Design Copyright” instead of “Copyright”

We will be releasing a new version with more bug fixes and some more PRO features soon!
