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.
I guess the one I learned here in Canada, which is the British spelling ‘ou’ every time. you also get used to the other way, doesn’t matter much to me, more important that I know what some one is trying to say.
footer at the top of the code?
deprecated HTML tags, such as center?
tables used for layout?
some real no-nos if you want to sell it on TF
I only started using WP last year after I was offered a free online host. this site is now online using a free theme.
I bought the 2010 bundle which included a WP theme, downloaded it and installed it on my local test system (XAMPP) and only then realized that what you see is not what you get as far as WP themes are concerned. no images, no content, yuck, what I thought might help me learn about WP and how it works on a theme turns out to be not so enticing.
If HTML templates did not contain content and images in their packages, I am sure there would have been many comments about this in the past but this has never been the case. If imsges, content and settings were included in themes, then perhaps I would have had a better learning experience,
I had a learning experience, just not the one I thought I would. I guess I thought I was buying the demo picture which you are clearly not. And this is not made clear to you as a novice buyer.
if you have installed the latest WordPress 3.2.1 on your GoDaddy hosting, then a theme included with it as the default is twentyeleven. when you login to wordpress, is this the theme that wordpress is using? if it is, then, all you need to do is unzip the purchased theme package you have and copy the theme code into the wp-content/themes folder, then activate your new theme. please realize that they may be more than one folder included in the theme package yoy buy, all you put into wp-content/themes is the code for the theme (must include a file called style.css and a file called index.php).
try downloading a theme from wordpress.org and installing it, you will see the process to be followed to install a new theme if you get that working.
I am not really sure that what I said is valid, I went to a theme for sale and clicked on extended license and then on more details and then I ran into the lawywr speak.
can someone translate what the licensing agreement says into simple English for us? looking at the two license agreements, they both have too many similarities to really interpret their differences. again, somebody translate what they say into simpler English.
theme is usually a WordPress theme (usual cost $35-40), template is usually an HTML template (usual cost $15-20), check before you buy to ensure you get what you want.
$40 allows you to use the product once in production, extended means you can use it multiple times (not sure of the actual number, although it may be 50).
