Kadence WP is Joining the iThemes Family!


Today, I am very excited to share that iThemes has acquired Kadence WP and the whole team behind Kadence Blocks, a WordPress page-builder style block package, and Kadence Theme, a next-generation WordPress theme built for performance and easy development. We know many of you are already know, use, and love Kadence WP.

It’s no secret that the “themes” part of iThemes has been lacking for many years now. While we got our start in WordPress themes back in 2008, over the past ten years, we pivoted to building tools for the more obvious, pressing needs of our customers (mainly WordPress security, backups, memberships, and maintenance) as the theme marketplace got more competitive.

Joining forces with Kadence WP means that iThemes will once again have a truly innovative WordPress theme platform. Kadence WP is a theme for the modern era of WordPress—and we’re making Kadence WP our official theme platform of choice.

We know you're going to have lots of questions, so we put together this announcement post with the whole story to explain what this acquisition means for both iThemes and Kadence WP customers. (Hint: This is very good news for Agency Bundle and Toolkit members!)
GREAT NEWS! Current Agency Bundle and Toolkit members will now find the Kadence WP platform (including Kadence Theme Pro and Kadence Blocks Pro) available for download from the iThemes Member Panel for FREE as part of your membership.

Ultimately, we hope the addition of Kadence WP to the iThemes product lineup means you can make more money with WordPress, whether you build sites for clients or use it for yourself.

By combining forces with Kadence WP, we’re doubling down on our mission to “Make People’s Lives Awesome” by helping you create WordPress websites that actually achieve your goals.

Looking ahead, we know the future is bright. We’re more excited than ever to continue to innovate, lead, grow, and help you do more with WordPress.

Matt Danner
General Manager
Make People's Lives Awesome

P.S. We're hosting a special iThemes Townhall with Kadence WP Founder, Ben Ritner, to answer all your questions live, so plan to join us this Friday, April 9 @ 1:00 p.m. (CT). We'll also provide a quick demo to show you the power of Kadence WP. If you haven't seen Kadence WP in action, you won't want to miss this. 

Can't make the live event? Go ahead and register for the live event and we'll email you the replay.
