1.5 is Alive!

by Nathan

One of our favorite things about working on the IgnitionDeck product line is that, with the help of our customers, we get to actively take part in the evolution of a new market that is continually re-defining itself. We believe that these new releases, IgnitionDeck Crowdfunding (IDCF) 1.5  and IgnitionDeck Commerce (IDC) 1.5, are the best examples of that to date….

The Evolution of Fundify & CrowdPress

by Nathan

We’re excited to announce that after numerous rounds of development and QA, the Fundify and CrowdPress themes have been upgraded in order to work with IgnitionDeck Crowdfunding. While this integration has been planned from the start, we chose to expedite it as a result of issues with the Fundify Crowdfunding plugin (formerly ATCF) and because of the numerous requests we received from…

The State of Fundify (and CrowdPress)

by Nathan

However, we also knew that in order to repair the fractured marketplace that was WordPress crowdfunding,  we would need to find a way to unify the offerings and create a customer and support experience that maintained our organization’s high standards. Knowing that these…

by Nathan

CrowdPress Joins the Theme Lineup

by Nathan

Over the past several months, we’ve been making efforts to build new themes and upgrade our existing lineup, fully believing that crowdfunding sites should be able to offer gorgeous, but unique offerings that differentiate themselves from the peers in their segment. As part of this initiative, we recently released an update to 500 Maximus, and very soon thereafter,  announced that the Fundify…

Fundify Joins the IgnitionDeck Family

by Nathan

In October of 2011, we launched IgnitionDeck with the single goal of helping entrepreneurs like us raise money without having to ask permission from the fundraising (VC’s) and crowdfunding (Kickstarter) gatekeepers. While we hoped to start a movement, we were not intending to linger for long, as we had other ideas that required nurturing. But in the world of business,…

The Beginning (and end) of MemberDeck

by Nathan

For nearly six months, we’ve been selling copies of MemberDeck via the IgnitionDeck + Membership package, and via purchase on MemberDeck.com. The product itself has been a hit, and has been successfully integrated into our white label crowdfunding product, IgnitionDeck Enterprise, enabling features far more advanced than the original IgnitionDeck product could offer. But there’s a problem… We never actually…

We Do Not Negotiate with Terrorists

by Nathan

We at Ignition WP, makers of IgnitionDeck, have benefitted greatly from what we believe to be one of the best customer bases in the WordPress community.
