Open Forum Webinar for Theme Authors

Blue River is planning a live Webinar for theme authors!

This webinar is for Theme Authors interested in converting their themes to Mura CMS. The Mura CMS team will begin by giving a quick demo on where to start with converting a simple HTML template over to a Mura theme. Then, we will have open forum to ask any questions you have about converting your theme to Mura CMS.
Any chance if the contest get a little extension? or what if we submit the theme on 8th July, Approval process itself takes 7-9days. Will you count that or not?

Sorry, we are unable to extend the deadline but you can submit all the way up until competition closes on Thursday, July 9th at 23.59pm AEST time.

Good luck!

Still no submissions on this CMS, I think WP Micro Niche and Layers Theme contest keep the authors busy. Hope to see few entries. I tried to find developer to work with us on our design but not able to get any. Even on thr forum/support. Resources seems to be very less for this

Hope you find a good developer, I think there is plenty of time. Remember, this event is not a race it makes sense for an author to try to get the best items submitted using the full time frame. Especially with some big prizes :)

Hi everyone! Still a month to go, plenty of time to get your Mura Theme entered. Remember, a single item is eligible to win 1 Best Category prize, Best Overall, and Best Converted Theme bonus prizes worth $4,500! And an author is eligible to win 2 Best Category prizes, Best Overall, Most Submitted/Approved, and Best Converted Theme bonus prizes worth $7,000!

Also, to help point you in the right direction, Blue River along with Tuts+ has done a great job putting out a 9 part series entitled “Theme development with Mura CMS” to help answer any questions you might have.

Good question…

Thanks yet again iamGrv! If there was a reward for pointing out my mistakes you would be the winner for sure :) Hope thats the last of it…
I’m just trying to help everyone around here. Hope there will be a change in the categories prizes again as some of the templates there still have some issues in typography and alignment but I am not going to point that out now and will choose to let you decide what’s better for everyone. But honestly I feel, change is needed. Let’s hope for the best for everyone.

Not sure I understand the problem. All of these items were accepted by review and though at times items will get through that are less than perfect I think you would agree that this type of thing happens. Now I think the real complaint I am hearing is that some of you are unhappy with the winners chosen by Unbounce. Please remember, Unbounce isn’t just looking at design when making these judgments rather they are looking at landing page best practices as well.

In the end, we all have an opinion of what should and shouldn’t win on every contest but lets try to keep these threads positive so the winners can enjoy their time in the spotlight :)

Hi Joshua,
CoralixThemes is under the first 20 new items category for theme “Agency Creative Landing Page” which is an updated item for his Instapage template.

Unbounce (31-03-2015) – http://themeforest.net/item/agency-creative-landing-page/10824137
Instapage (29-11-2014) – http://themeforest.net/item/agency-creative-landing-page/9525986

Hence, this is also not eligible for the first 20 new templates for 300$.
Please look into this and reconsider the category prizes again.

Thanks yet again iamGrv! If there was a reward for pointing out my mistakes you would be the winner for sure :) Hope thats the last of it…

Hi everyone, because there were a handful of submissions that didn’t qualify I have made more changes to the winners announcement. To be clear, authors that submitted non-new items for the first 20 and the bonus prizes did not follow the rules and as such are not eligible.

Thanks for your patience and for baring with me while I correct the issues. – Josh
