As IPS 4.0 begins to roll out, officially leaving release candidate stage and entering final release, we're pleased to announce that we'll be creating a suite of awesome new themes for this new, fancy, cool version of Invision Power Services' latest community and content management system.

There are a lot of questions people may have, so we'll try to address most of the concerns in this post. If there is anything I forget to mention, feel free to comment or PM us and we'll edit this post to address those concerns.

First, any successor to existing themes, will be free of charge to those who purchased the previous version. For example, if we release Revolt 3, anyone with Revolt 2 will be eligible to receive this theme at no cost. This is hypothetical, because Revolt 3 doesn't exist (yet), just an example.

Next, we'll be discounting existing IPB 3 themes in the coming weeks and there will be no future updates to those themes unless absolutely necessary, but they will still absolutely be supported 100% for any bugs, modifications, or changes people request.

Lastly, we'll have an initial wave of premade themes, but eventually we will be updating them to include new features, adding more value with no price change such as automated features and easy editing improvements, in addition to more color combinations. 

In addition to premade themes, we will be available for custom work. However, we'll likely limit our scope in the beginning while demand is high and our schedules are tight. We don't want to over-promise and not be able to deliver. Over time, we'll open up what kind of orders we'll accept to a wider scope.

Looking ahead, we'd also like to hear from you! What would you like to see in a theme? Colors, style, features, etc.. Let us know! You're the reason we do this. We'd love to include everyone in our creative process and make themes that truly inspire and fit your needs.

Let us know what you think and if you have any comments or questions about IPS 4.0 and Virteq.

Do you guys have an ETA on when the first 4.0 theme will be available? I recently upgraded my forums to 4.0 and would love to have the Innovation theme on 4.0

No ETA yet, as IPS 4.0 still has a lot of bugs we're hoping get squashed soon, and with so many releases coming out, themes have to constantly get modified, on top of the learning curve of figuring out what the new classes are, how they work, and how old systems will work when ported to the new engine. So there's a lot going on. I'm hoping within a month I'll have at least a couple themes released. Innovation being one of them, although I think I'll change the name. The name doesn't really fit. It's just my first theme, ever, and have kept the name because it was familiar to people who used my first theme that started me on this journey. But it doesn't hold much weight these days.

 

Expect something minimal, sleek, dark, and color-changing as the spiritual successor, for sure!

Soc 2 will get a spiritual successor, but will not carry over in name, to IPS 4.0. It will get rebranded and a cool new look, but still take some of the colors and personality it originally had, just like in Soc 1.

Thank you, I look forward to seeing the end result.

Not at the moment, sorry. It's our goal to make it happen, but we have been very busy outside of the IPS world that a lot of our projects have taken a backseat lately :(
