Announcing Dev News

Just wanted to let everyone know about my new site Dev News. It's basically a Hacker News specifically for web development news. Feel free to contribute posts and share anything you find interesting.


Closed Beta WordPress Plugin

Over the weekend we launched our new Closed Beta WordPress plugin. It allows you to turn your site into a “Closed Beta” site where only logged in and approved users will be able to access your normal WordPress site. Any logged out or unapproved users will see the Closed Beta splash page which allows users to “sign up” for approval to access your site.


Lean Slider

The Lean Slider is a simple jQuery image slider built on the principles of Progressive Enhancement. Unlike other sliders it does not provide any styling or fancy transition effects. It simply provides a javascript framework (slideshow functionality, navigation controls, callback functions etc.) for you to build a slider on top of.


WP Updates is now live!

WP Updates allows you easily provide automatic updates for your premium WordPress themes & plugins. Our web app provides a simple interface for managing versions of your themes/plugins without having to touch any code.

Wp Updates is Coming...

Hey guys Just want to give the awesome WordPress theme/plugin authors at Forrst the heads up that we’re working hard to get [WP Updates](http://wp-updates.com) on it’s feet. WP Updates was born out of the frustration of providing automatic updates to your premium WordPress theme and plugins. It has always been a clunky process until now. With WP Updates the process will look something like: 1. Add a short snippet of code to your WordPress theme or plugin 2. When a new version is ready, upload it at WP Updates 3. Users using your theme/plugin can now auto update via WordPress We really hope that some of you guys will find WP Updates useful and we would love to have you on board. So [check it out](http://wp-updates.com) and let us know what you think :)
