On February 2013, more than one and a half year ago, we released our very first theme as Codestag: Proxy.
It was a one-page portfolio theme that performed very well in terms of sales, and was used so creatively from our customers, that we could ever imagine. However, very recently we took the decision to retire it. So, based on that, Proxy will be retired by Monday 15th of September 2014.
We took that decision because we want to be honest primarily with ourselves, and then with our customers. Proxy did not reflect the new approach that we have been following at Codestag the last months: Simple to use, consistent themes that provide a unique experience and follow the best practices in terms of design and code. Proxy was good, but it was not perfect. At least as close to perfection as we wanted it to be.
What happens to existing Proxy customers?
We are extending the support for Proxy for one week, ending on Monday 21st of September. After that, support will no longer be available. We would like to say a big “thank you!” to all Proxy buyers for their support and trust, and for their understanding. You are awesome.
Any plans for relaunching it?
We might release Proxy again in the future, completely updated regarding design and code, but this is not something we can commit to. So far we have been going with a flow that allowed us to be flexible and effective, and we don’t know where this flow will lead us. There are great things coming, that’s for sure.
Many things. We have been really busy lately. We now have a new logo (stay tuned for this), re-designing our website, building a brand new knowledge base with integrated online documentation, and we are changing the way we handle support, aiming to offer a more personalized and effective customer service. Oh yes, we are working on a couple of awesome themes too.
There are great things coming, and we can’t wait to share them with you. Stay tuned!
