As the sun sets on another eventful year, we’re ready to reflect on our journey over the last twelve months. It’s been a year like no other, with unique challenges shaping how we grow and serve the WordPress community.
We owe much of our journey to you. Your support and feedback are the cornerstone of our growth, so join us as we recap our highlights and gear up for an even more exciting year ahead!
A Year of Remarkable Milestones and Growth
This year, SeedProd hit an eye-opening number of active installs.
With 23,006,681 downloads, +1 million active installations, and 4,473 5-star reviews, it’s humbled and motivated us to keep pushing the boundaries.
Here is what people are saying:
“I’ve used SeedProd several times, and each time it works great! It saves me a lot of work when my site is down and need to perform maintenance. Thanks, SeedProd, for your product.” – Gaycarnes
“I always choose this plugin. This is my first choice always when building a new site. Very reliable plugin.” – Madamemagic
“Use when building and updating client websites. Love the improvements to the backend page builder. Makes it even easier to set up.” – Sophd
8 Product Updates and New Features
Staying true to our promise of code-free website design, 2023 saw us roll out 8 major updates, each aimed at making WordPress customization easy for everyone, no matter your experience.
With 8 new WordPress blocks, you can:
- Display interactive image hotspots
- Highlight your team members
- Organize price-lists
- Show reviews from Google and Yelp
- Create eye-catching alerts
- Display WooCommerce product galleries
- Make your videos pop up and stick as users scroll
- Show user-friendly content toggles
- Generate engaging Particle Backgrounds
We’ve also improved how our drag-and-drop page builder works.
It now remembers your preferred layout and lets you copy and paste blocks, sections, and rows between pages. On top of that, you can build custom author pages to boost your site’s trust and authority.
One of our goals is to have SeedProd work seamlessly with other tools you use. That’s why we introduced Easy Digital Downloads integration.
With 11 dedicated blocks and template tags, you can easily create an online store to sell digital goods and customize it without writing code.
300+ Premade Website Kits & Templates
Our development team has been working hard on new designs. Over the year, we released +65 responsive website kits, totaling over 100 site kits and 200 landing page templates, with more on the way.
These designs make building a site from scratch effortless. Instead of paying high development fees, simply choose a design and customize it to suit your needs – no coding required.

100+ Blog Articles and Developer Documents
Product education is just as important to us as rolling out features. With this in mind, we published a host of educational materials to help you get the most from SeedProd’s new updates.
They cover everything from how-to guides and tips to the best WordPress plugin suggestions and design examples.
Some of our most impactful posts this year included:
- How to Create a Custom WordPress Theme in 5 Code-Free Steps
- How to Create a WordPress Website for Beginners
- How to Write an About Us Page for Your WordPress Site
