Well that’s an excellent question! What does motivate us to keep on developing great WordPress themes and provide dedicated support for all our users?
There are many factors really but one of the most satisfying reasons is getting positive customer feedback. Whilst many of our customers thank us in the forums for getting timely help with their sites, one recent message stood out in particular.
Jan, and Ingvild, from Peppy Fitness e-mailed us specifically to thank us for helping them get their site up and running. You can check out the great work they have done on their site here, which is based on our FitPro theme.
The e-mail we received from Jan, and Ingvild, was as follows:
Dear Scott and David,
Our website www.peppyfitness.com has now been up and running for a while with the Fitpro theme. The major hurdles have been passed, and we can now enjoy adding posts and pages without spending too much time on technical details (although we do have do upgrade to the new version soon).
So, we would like to take the opportunity to thank you both for your outstanding help and patience and quick response time while we were setting up our site over the past months. We’re very pleased and feel we have been in the good hands of two very skilled people (and their team).
We’ve had many questions, and you’ve always answered professionally to the most unprofessional of questions .
Thank you for making it so easy for us to recommend your services and themes to others!
Jan Helge and Ingvild Ostensen
This sort of feedback is exactly what motivates us to get out of bed in the morning and to continue developing awesome themes! So, many thanks for the kind words Jan, we really appreciate it. Good luck with your site in the future and you know where we are if you need any further help!
Press Coders is now offering full service, all inclusive WordPress hosting to our theme customers.
We’ve been referring our customers to outside hosts for a while now, but we find that we answer a lot of questions about how to set everything up. Sometimes it will be weeks from the time someone buys their hosting until they actually get their site online.
If you setup hosting yourself, you have to find a hosting company you trust, purchase a plan, register a domain, connect the domain and hosting, install WordPress, install your theme, then build your site. That’s assuming you already know how to do that stuff and you don’t need help.
What a pain!
In the time it takes to go back and forth with someone helping them setup their hosting account, we could have set it up for them and saved everyone some trouble.
That stuff is easy for us, so we figured, why not just let us do all the work?
After all, we know our themes better than anyone, who better to set your site up for you?
This service isn’t for everyone, and that’s ok. This is only for our theme customers who don’t have the time or desire to mess with setting up and maintaining all the technical stuff.
To sweeten the deal, we will throw in a free theme!

We are excited to announce the release of our latest theme, FitX. It is our second fitness theme after the success of our very popular FitPro theme.
FitX is a vibrant new theme with lots of great features, you can see a demo of it here.
