    Rate Connections Reloaded on BlogFlux

    Some of you may be aware of Blogflux’s Theme Directory. I had added Connections Reloaded a long time back to it and decided to check on the same today. The 3.7 rating so far generates mixed feelings and I am hoping for a better rating. Please do visit the theme page in the directory and rate the theme. And post a few comments as well 🙂 Thanks.

    Connections Reloaded Credit Line

    I have noticed that a lot of users of my theme Connections Reloaded are removing the credit line in the footer. While I can’t stop you from doing this, I can request you not to. I am not making anything out of the theme except for a few donations which some of my generous users have given. If you would like to remove the credit line, please consider a donation of atleast USD50. Once again this is not a charge for a theme but merely an appreciation for my work. Clicking the buton below will lead you to the Paypal page where you can send your donation. Thanks, Ajay

    Connections Reloaded 1.5 in French

    Chez Thierry has done an amazing job of creating an internationalized version of Connections Reloaded 1.5. He has generated the required .mo and .po files which you can use to translate, using poEdit. He has currently translated it to French and you can find the same here. Good job Thierry! I have a few more modifications in mind for 1.6, and I will officially release an internationalized version of Connections Reloaded 🙂

    Connections Revolutions in the Making

    It’s been three months since I posted the Connections Reloaded 2 Roadmap and I must confess that I haven’t done much development on it since there. I guess you won’t really blame me because my day job has kept me so busy that I have had little personal life but for a few occasions. Additionally the impetus to devote additional time for developing hasn’t been really strong. I have been doing a lot of thinking behind the scenes. Connections Reloaded has become really famous with around 2500 downloads at the time of this post and that too only from this site. Additionally it works perfectly with WordPress 1.5.x and 2.x.…

    Just two months after Connections Reloaded crossed 1000 downloads, it has crossed the 2000 download mark, i.e. around 500 downloads a month 🙂 I’m shocked, pleased and extremely excited.
