Theme sale to all countries + guest checkout

From now on I sell my themes to all countries. That is possible because I state sale taxes from this year on. Because of that, I am going to increase the price of Schlicht from 15 to 18 Euros on February 1, 2017 (circa the 19 percent sales tax in Germany).

Update from January 26, 2017: From now on, all customers can use automatic theme updates. Because of this, I deactivated the possibility to create an account on a purchase.

Besides that, it is now possible to buy a theme without creating a customer account. But if you use the guest checkout, this means you cannot use the automatic update process. You will need to download the new theme versions manually with a link you get after purchasing.

#projekt52 – next try

Last year, Torsten Landsiedel set himself the goal to write one article each week, so 52 posts in the year. With his Project 52, he also motivated a few others, but only one reached the goal – I had to give up directly in January…

This year there is a restart, and besides Torsten, also Bernhard Kau accepts the challenge again (he was the only one to publish one post per week in 2016). After that, there are already a few others who will try to do it – Wolfram Lührig, Ellen and Manuel from Elmastudio, and Marc Nilius.

I’ll give it a try again, too… Happy Blogging!
