Extend Customizr with Featured Pages Unlimited 11


Howdy Customizr’s users!

Since its inception back in may 2013, Customizr has been designed to be…customizable!  I have been working hard to make the code as easy to extend as possible for developers, by providing a very flexible development framework along with an API of hooks. The theme now acts like a collection of plugins that can be easily disabled/enabled of modified without touching the core code.

If you are not familiar with the hook’s API of Customizr, you might want to have a look at the code snippets section, where you’ll find many examples of customizations for any parts / features of your website.


 

For those who prefer to get ready to use add-ons whitout having to dive into the code, a new section called extensions has come to life. There you’ll find plugins and themes, ready to use with Customizr, allowing you to add great features to your website.

 

Today, I am happy to present the freshly released Featured Pages Unlimited. This is a plugin that adds handy features to the built-in Customizr featured pages like unlimited number of pages, layout options or the ability to choose which elements to display. Of course, this is all integrated nicely in the customizer, so that you design it live, like the theme’s native options.

 

random-colored-featured-pagesThere is one special feature in this plugin for which I am particularly enthusiastic : the “flat design” random color checkbox.

In facts, it is pretty simple stuffs but very nice and refreshing : when enabled, this option paints your featured pages blocks (circle image, title, excerpt and button) with beautiful and random “flat design” looking colors.

Because those colors are randomly set, this makes the front page unique for every single visitor, and I just love this idea!

 

 I hope you will enjoy this addition to the theme and I look forward to reading your feedbacks about it!

    Went to purchase it with the discount, signed up an account, it said it was $15 with the discount, took me to paypal page, paypal said it was $19.

    (it should be about $12 with the exchange rate from Australia)

    So went back to see if i could buy it with credit card, it would not let me, said my cart was empty when i tried to repurchase it.

    Thats because it was in “my account” Download confirmation area, where it had payment status “pending”.

    But there is no way to pay for it from there as far as i can see, i can only have a invoice emailed to me.

    I tried it, got this: “The invoice that you requested was not found.”

    Then i thought i will use the support forum…you have to own “unlimited” first , then i thought i will contact you guys..there is no contact…so know i am asking for help here.

    Can you fix this? i have spent 30 minutes trying to buy this.. i might just pay the full price and forget the discount. cool theme btw.

    • Hi Aaron, I see that you finally managed to do it.
      I will work on simplifying this process, thanks for your useful feedback,
      Best regards and enjoy the extension!

    Hi Nicolas,

    I have the same problem. Not able/wanting to use Pay Pal in China. Cannot generate an invoice (system sais not available), and not able to access credit card method of payment. Any ideas?

    • Hi Mirek,

      You can choose to pay with a Credit Card through the Paypal gateway, without needing to create a Paypal account. In this case, you just have to use a different email adress than the one you’ve used to create a previous Paypal account.

      Hope this will help, best regards and enjoy Customizr!

    Is there a different payment gateway to purchase the extension? like payza or skrill , cause i can’t pay via paypal.

    • Hi Michael, Paypal is the only gateway available to purchase the extension.
      Please note that you can pay with any Credit Card through the Paypal gateway,without needing to create a Paypal account. In this case, you just have to use a different email adress than the one you’ve used to create a previous Paypal account. (if you had one)

      Hope this will help, best regards and enjoy Customizr!

    Is there a way to keep the awesome color change for just the text and have the “featured” image be the one I selected on my site. I love that the font changes and I don’t want to lose that if possible. Thanks – the theme is awesome. I also appreciate all of the support that goes with it.

    • Hi Robin, this option is no available as of now, but it’s an excellent point though.
      I will come with a solution in the next update.
      Thanks for this feedback, it really helps to fit users needs!

  • Hi, the pay for thi extension is just once or it will be every year?

    best regards

    I went to renew my Featured Pages Unlimited and found myself in a very insecure loop asking me to list my credit card, which i did, but it did not return me to paypal, it just kept me going in a loop — second time around i knew something was wrong. i guess i better change my card again. i still have a month to go before deadline is over for me. thanks.
