Introducing Themedd, a free theme for Easy Digital Downloads

We’re very excited to introduce Themedd, the latest addition to our family of themes.

Themedd was created to be a solid starting point for both end users and developers alike. Designed to be clean and simple right out of the box, Themedd makes it quick and easy to set up a store with Easy Digital Downloads to sell your digital products.

Themedd also supports the Frontend Submissions extension (and the rest of the Digital Marketplace Bundle) so setting up your own marketplace is a breeze.

This is how Themedd displays downloads when using the [downloads] shortcode from Easy Digital Downloads:

And a download’s product page looks like this:

Theme Options

Themedd supports native WordPress features so you can add a site logo, site icon, header image, background image, menus, widgets and more. Also included are options for enabling a full width layout or displaying excerpts for posts.

A header image can be added. It will adapt based on whether the page is full width or not

Easy Digital Downloads

When Easy Digital Downloads is installed and activated, new theme options specific to Easy Digital Downloads will appear.

With the Distraction Free Checkout option enabled, the checkout page is drastically simplified to prevent distractions. Header menus, footer widgets (if set), and sidebars are all removed. Doing so improves the customer’s experience and helps reduce cart abandonment. The site title and logo (if set) are linked to the site’s homepage so the customer can find their way back.

Showing a customer the number of items in their cart, the cart total, and providing a link to checkout is a key aspect of any eCommerce website. Themedd makes it easy to show exactly what you want to the customer with 7 possible combinations to choose from. Below are a few examples of how this option can be configured.

Show the cart icon, item count and the cart total:

Customers can see the number of items in their cart and the cart total

Hide the cart icon and only show the item count and the cart total:

Customers can see the item quantity and cart total

Enhanced integrations

Themedd provides 100% custom styling for Easy Digital Downloads. Although Themedd is compatible with any Easy Digital Downloads extension, there are some that Themedd provides additional custom styling (and sometimes functionality) for. See the enhanced plugin integrations article for a list of these extensions. Custom styling and/or functionality for enhanced extensions are only loaded when that specific extension is installed and activated.

Here are a few examples of how Themedd integrates with Frontend Submissions:

The vendor forms in Frontend Submissions

Amazing theme, Andrew. I really, really love your style. Pretty slick, indeed! Kudos to you and all your team. I’m pretty sure this is going to be the “EDD’s StoreFront” so to speak. Cool!

Where can I see a Live Demo without downloading? I see a landing page here, but no real demo 🙁 https://themedd.com/

Can you add a link where I can see it?

Looking great. Can’t wait to give it a try. Will Vendd be deprecated in favor of Themedd going forward or will it still continue to receive updates love?

Reply

No, Vendd is still actively maintained and developed and that is not going to change.

Will this work with Learndash products?

Hi Ennbee!

Themedd is the WordPress theme (how the site looks). I believe you’re actually asking if Easy Digital Downloads will work with Learndash. The answer is yes. See https://www.learndash.com/add-on/easy-digital-downloads/ and https://easydigitaldownloads.com/blog/new-learndash-integration/

Does this offer bulk editing of products? Does it allow the ability to sell products that have multiple versions?

Hi Carl!

Themedd is a theme. Easy Digital Downloads itself will allow bulk editing of products and the ability to sell multiple versions of a product.

Hello, thanks for your work. Can I see a website (if possible provide the url) using the themedd theme?

We’ve just launched a demo site for Themedd: https://successstories.themedd.com

Hi,

Are you planning on adding support for the display of recurring payments?

For example: if the payment is $49/month will the theme display the “/per month” near the price in the single download?

I downloaded the theme and checked and as it seems it currently does not support it.

Thanks in advance,

Motti

Hey Motti, great idea! I’ve added this as a potential addition to Themedd on GitHub: https://github.com/easydigitaldownloads/themedd/issues/167

Hi,

Is there a theme that comes without product images and a check-box against each product to select the products a user wants to purchase? A customer need not click on ‘Purchase’ or ‘add to cart’ for each product he is looking to buy.

I am looking to set up a website for selling pdf, doc, excel files. A typical page will be divided into various sections and each section may have multiple files that can be downloaded. I don’t need any image with the files – just the ‘pdf’/’exce’/’doc’ icon will suffice. I need the ease of ordering – a customer could tick boxes against each file he wants to download and then just click ‘purchase’ once at the end.

Reply

There is not one that I am aware of.
