We’ve got exciting news: our friend George at Momnt has officially taken over our WordPress software business. From now on, you’ll visit momnt.co for sales and support for all of our premium and free WordPress plugins and themes.
If you’ve purchased software from us in the past, you probably already know George from the amazing support he’s provided in our forums. He’ll be taking over the ongoing development, sales, and support of our Portfolio Slideshow Pro & Portfolio Framework plugins, Q & A Plus, and the Portfolio2 theme, as well as our other free plugins and themes.
Our WordPress software business grew bigger—and more quickly—than we ever could have imagined when we launched the first premium version of the Portfolio theme. Since then we’ve expanded to create an entire suite of software tools for people who build websites with WordPress. Our main business has always been client services, however, and we’ve found that we just don’t have the ability to run the two businesses simultaneously.
We were thrilled when George agreed to take over our software business. He’s enthusiastic and has more experience with our software than anyone else. We’re confident that our plugins and themes have a bright future in George’s hands and can’t wait to see how he grows the business.
George has agreed to provide support for all of our past customers as well, so if you’ve purchased a license from us, you’re entitled to ongoing support for your software from Momnt. All of your user and license information has already been transferred over to Momnt’s ecommerce and support system, so feel free to get in touch! If you haven’t already purchased a license for Portfolio Slideshow Pro or one of our other premium plugins, now is a great time!
It’s no secret that we love WooCommerce around here—we’ve developed several custom e-commerce sites for clients based on WordPress and WooCommerce and we’re already working on more. Take a look at Pirtti Handwoven and Outdoor Nativity Store for inspiration!
Our Portfolio2 theme loves WooCommerce too, but you need to make a minor adjustment to the WooCommerce template HTML in order to integrate properly with our theme. Just install our compatibility plugin and WooCommerce and Portfolio should work together perfectly!
If you use LESS and LiveReload, you might be interested in my forked LESS plugin that includes an option for compressed CSS output.
Just copy the LESS.lrplugin file to ~/Library/LiveReload/Plugins or ~/Dropbox/Library/LiveReload/Plugins, and you’ll see the following option when you set up your project settings.
Since our very first release of the Portfolio theme, people have been asking for a side-scrolling option, similar to the horizontal-scrolling galleries found in Indexhibit. Unfortunately it’s not easy to add a fixed-sidebar, horizontal scrolling template in Portfolio2, so instead we’re releasing Departure.
You may not be able to tell from the screenshot, but Departure is a fixed-sidebar, horizontal scrolling theme. It’s not as feature-rich as Portfolio2, but it does one simple thing and it might be exactly what you’re looking for. Best of all, it’s free! The theme is particularly useful when paired with our Portfolio Framework plugin.

We’ve been building e-commerce sites with WooCommerce for a little while now, and I like it quite a bit. I’ve used just about every other ecommerce plugin for WordPress out there, and I’ve been unhappy with all of them. WooCommerce is intuitive, stable, has a great plugins and support, and is easy to theme. We migrated our software sales on this site over to WooCommerce, in fact, with relatively little trouble.
One simple thing I was surprised to discover is not included in WooCommerce is an easy way to display all of the items that are on sale in your shop. I needed this for a client project I’m working on, so I took a peek at the shortcodes that are already included in WooCommerce and built something based on that. This gist has everything you need to add a shortcode to WooCommerce that will display all of your sale items.
I’ve submitted a pull request to the WooCommerce git repo, so hopefully we’ll see something like this in a future version of the plugin.
