For a long time, I was thinking that my CRM theme I have been working on would be released as a standalone theme.  But when I got down to thinking about it, I decided that it makes more sense as a plugin.

I invested a good amount of hours tonight separating the theme functionality from the plugin functionality.  I learned a bit about plugins_url() and automatically installing/recommending plugins from the theme activation process – by far the coolest thing I have seen in the WordPress world in a while.

I am still working on building the service that will utilize with the theme, a process that has taken longer than expected.

The release schedule is still up in the air, but with each late night, I get a little closer!  I appreciate y’all who have expressed an interest in beta-testing the theme/plugin.  I will be in touch as soon as it makes sense.

    That seems great. I’ll try to keep up with your work as I am quite keen in finding a good alternative to Highrise.
