The WordPress social networking theme that I posted about yesterday has now gone on dimesale. Up until 10AM EST today, you were able to buy the theme (with multi-site and developer licenses thrown in) for $27.

As the time this post was written, the theme was selling for $27.45 – not a huge price increase but with each sale, the price does go up.

Here’s a site that was languishing a bit that I added the theme to:

'About Cats' website using social networking theme
About Cats‘ website using social networking theme

This makes the site look much more modern and cleaner.

There is an upsell for this theme for $27 which is a plugin that automates content curation and is designed to work seamlessly with the social networking theme. There are two or three other higher-priced upsells, but they can safely be skipped as they add nothing to the theme itself.

With both the social networking theme and the auto content curation plugin running on the site, this is a great, hands-off way to build lots of sites. Some moderation will be required to check that visitors aren’t submitting unrelated or spam articles to your sites but you can stop that if needed by having submitted pages go into Draft status rather than Published status.

The content curation plugin allows you to pull in articles from Google News, Google Blog Search and any RSS feed you like. You can schedule when content is pulled and you can run as many campaigns as you like on your sites to pull content.

The plugin hasn’t been added to the above site yet so what you’ll see are the most recent posts that were manually added (in normal blog posting fashion). I’ll add the plugin to the site in the next day so you can see how active (and hand-off) posting becomes.

The social networking theme is excellent for getting user interaction on sites. Your visitors build your content for you by submitting (bookmarking) sites and pages with your site.

So go grab the theme now. Don’t wait or it’ll end up costing you more!
