Shape5 Updates


Since 2007 Shape5 has been a leader in designing and developing innovating and aesthetically pleasing Joomla templates and WordPress themes. To date we provide the most diverse collection of templates and themes that range from a variety of different types of industries, campaigns, and general uses to fit your needs. Our Vertex framework is not only one of the most powerful available, but also one of the most flexible by allowing virtually any feature to be enabled or disabled, custom color selections, integrated animation scripts, responsive layouts, and much more. We are committed to continue this endeavor, and provide top quality products for a long time to come.

We would like to update you on Shape5 and some new changes within the company. Shape5 was started by Mike Knott and Jonah Hall nearly a decade ago, and both remain co-owners of the company to this date. Many of you have come to know them over the years in our forum boards and other ways. Mike and Jonah have also both been lead designers and developers at Shape5 since it's foundation. It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Jonah has recently been overcome with a debilitating medical condition that is prohibiting him from continuing with his normal work load at this time, and is greatly effecting his day to day level of living. At this point the exact cause of the issue is not known, nor is the treatment. We won't go into the details because it is very private, but keep him lifted in your thoughts and prayers. Mike, and another employee are currently taking over Jonah's responsibilities within the company while he recuperates, and we are hoping to see him back to full health soon!

This unexpected scenario, combined with the steady decline of Joomla, has stretched our resources at Shape5. Until we can come up with a long term solution, this means we will be altering our release schedule for new releases. Historically we have always provided a new theme and template once per month, and sometimes more. This consistency allowed developers to build sites around a timeline and gave them the expectation of when they could preview and download new products. The new release cycle will now be every six to eight weeks, until further notice. Only our release cycle is being altered at this time; maintenance and updates on products will remain prompt, as will product support.

We are still committed to creating some of the best Joomla and WordPress products the internet has to offer, and we thank you for your patience and understanding during this time!

Update - Jonah is feeling much better, but not completely back to full health. Because of this, and declines in Joomla, we will continue on a 6 to 8 week release cycle.
