Publisher 1 for ExpressionEngine 2 renewals disabled

September 19, 2017

While the sales of new licenses of Publisher 1 has been disabled for several months, the renewals were still active. A few customers have renewed to get the latest version because they have been unable to upgrade to ExpressionEngine 3. It was a little confusing to end support of Publisher 1 but also continue to sell renewals, even though the last few versions of Publisher 1 have been very stable and very few bugs reported. To remove the confusion, and to accelerate the move away from EE2, renewals have now also been disabled.

Update on Publisher for EE3 release

October 24, 2016

Awhile back I had mentioned on Twitter that October was the target release date for Publisher, but due to a very busy few weeks at my day job to re-launch a new website I was not able to work on Publisher as much as I had hoped. The good news is now that things have returned to normal I've shifted my focus again to Publisher and want to reassure customers that I am dedicated to releasing Publisher for EE3 as soon as I humanly can. Ideally I'd like to release it in November. I know a lot of you have been waiting for the release for some time and I apologize for the delay, but there are only so many hours in a day and I am a team of 1.

Price Increases

October 15, 2014

On November 1st, 2015 Devot:ee will increase their take on all sales from 20% to 30%. To offset this increase, All BoldMinded add-ons will increase in price accordingly. Prices will be adjusted just enough to offset the additional 10% increase to keep our revenue per add-on sale about same as it was when Devot:ee took 20%. For instance, Publisher will increase from $175 to $200, which means we still recieve $140 per license sold.

Publisher Going Forward

July 24, 2013

As many of you know ExpressionEngine 2.7 is on the horizon. What that means is there will be many people still using the 2.5 branch, a few brave people using 2.6 and some even braver people jumping to 2.7. It also means that there can effectivley be 3 different relationship fieldtypes in play depending on which version you're using (old relationship field, new relationship field, and Playa).

ExpressionEngine, meet Publisher

October 15, 2012

In the summer of 2011 I tweeted about a very large project I was working on,, and included screenshots and even a video demo of an add-on I created for it to allow for publishing workflow and translations. At the time there was nothing like it for ExpressionEngine 2, thus I had to build it from scratch. The result was a module called Uhura.
