I have not updated because the computer I use here is an old laptop, 1.4 Ghz, 1 GB memory, 120 GB drive, works for what I want to do with it so I leave it at that. My previous laptop, I spilled water on it this summer and that really did it in. quite the process in getting everything moved over to this computer, thankfully the HD was OK. Not sure if it can be repaired or not, hard to get parts. That’s the problem with these things, they still work fine but when there is a problem with them and there will be, if it is more than a few years old, then it is considered to be obsoletete and eligible for just throwing it away.

XP is still quite a popular o/s, the computers we refurbish for schools here in Ontario, Canada (I volunteer there) all have XP loaded on them for the schools and that probably won’t change any time soon. it was just a couple of years ago, we stopped putting Windows 2000 on them. things move slow in the real world, not enough money to give everyone the latest and greatest s/w and hardware.

use XP here, highest level of IE possible is IE8 . use FF and Chrome some of the time, did notice that Safari was a large user database on one of the sites I have, more than FF or Chrome, so i think it depends on your audience.

doubt that I will ever be able to update past IE8 , and as long as it works OK on most web sites, I won’t really care.

if you don’t provide support for my IE level, then I will probably not come to your web site again if you want to reject me as a viewer by not giving me a reasonable experience regardless of the browser I use. I won’t always switch to FF or Chrome to see your web site unless your content is really desirable but please don’t make it too big a hassle for me regardless of my browser..

as far as I understand, you can change anything you like in the theme, but you cannot claim that the theme is your design in any way, shape or form.

I was checking out the rest of the site, not just that page

have not seen anyone else use screenr for debugging, but in some cases it would be quite helpful

don’t know what to make of paradigm-hq.com. it is not up to date and, yes, it looks the Paradigm template has been used, but there is no Twitter feed in the code, it has not been updated for months and makes you wonder if it is just a sample site or a site for a real business, or is it Mike McAlister’s demo site? the blog page is sure convoluted and everythings links back to the page you are on.

as a site, it sure does not sell me on the services of Paradigm. I think that the template looks good but not extraordinary to me. it is a pretty standard layout.

in answer to the original question, just do it. as llong as you do not claim that these themes are your own creation, then you should have no problem, all you are doing is offering your clients a service that installs a web site for them, using a commodity like a theme.

if this is not what this marketplace is about then I don’t understand what it is about. I can only assume that someone who sells hundreds of themes, this is precisely what happens to their wares, otherwise why so many sales? in that you as a buyer do not know who else has used the theme wherever, then again go ahead and do what you are planning to do. as long as you buy one theme per usage and don’t claim these themes as your own, then I don’t thnk Envato or any author can complain about your practices.

if I am wrong, I would sure appreciate enlightenment.

whether you have 2 home links or not, depends on how you call the nav menu and the setup in functions.php. if functions.php is set up to show the home page when you list a menu as is done in twentyeleven, then yes, you will get 2 home page links.

use custom menus and show only the nav links ypu want, you may notice that the home page link does show up in the links box, but only the one you click on is included in the menu. tricky question and not well explained in the wordpress documentation.
