Volcanic Acquires 85ideas & SamK

by Melvin Ram on July 30, 2010

Volcanic has acquired the digital assets of SamK.ca & 85ideas.com. We’re going to continue supporting the users of these themes and will soon be announcing some exciting improvements to the themes, as part of a larger, more exciting announcement.

I’d like to welcome Sam, who will be working with us to improve the themes, support the users and grow our themes library. I’ve used his Pixel themes in the past because of it’s unique look and we’re excited about having his talent as part of our resources.

Melvin Ram, CEO
Volcanic Web Design Company

Message from Sam:

Hi everybody
Over the past few years, I’ve received a lot of questions about ways to enhance, customize and personalize the WordPress themes that I have been distributing. I’ve been thinking of ways to do so, and I think I’ve finally found a solution that will make everybody happy.

If you like the themes that I’ve been distributing, you’re going to love this.
In the last few months, I’ve been chatting a lot with Melvin Ram of Volcanic Web Design Company. Melvin has been working with WordPress for a while now (you might know Volcanic better for the WordPress backup plugin they released) and is now preparing something very interesting concerning WordPress themes. Something that should make the WordPress community blissfully happy.

I will be joining Volcanic in this adventure.
The themes available on samk.ca and 85ideas.com will very shortly be hosted on Volcanic’s website, where we will proceed with their development and enhancement.

What does this mean?
For users, it means that within a few weeks/months, the themes will have an overhaul. More options, better ways to customize them etc. More of everything! For me, it means that I’ll be working together with Melvin in doing so. For the themes and domains, it means that their copyrights and ownership are now part of Volcanic.

We will therefore proceed to redirecting the domains to Volcanic, starting August 2nd, 2010

See you on the other side!

Hi there -

I recently changed my theme to your “pixel” theme. Its great – except suddenly, the comments part of each page has disappeared, and for the life of me I cannot find a way to make it come back! Please help!

Great to hear that the WP themes will be updated. Love Pixeled, and am looking forward to any updates that help to enhance its use. We of the Virtually Challenged find it quite a leap to make such changes ourselves, and so we throw ourselves at the feet of those more knowledgeable on matters of higher computer byte drive, htpml-type stuff.
