For what i know when a buyer buy;s an theme of yours he can change the copyright line to anything he wants. I have a couple of buyers who have done the same, i dont mind, they pay me for the theme. Dont forget about this…...an buyer often dont want a strange name on there website, so they will put there own name there.

welcome in the world of templates ;)

Be smart and give the buyer support, it will increase your name!
Removing the credit at the bottom of a theme or template is not the same as replacing the real designer’s name with your own. If you didn’t design the website, don’t put text at the bottom saying you did whether you paid for it or not. It’s simply a lie.

Dude let it die, do not support IE6 ;)
I fully support this post. I haven’t supported IE6 for some time now in the hope that by not doing so I can contribute to its decline.

I can forgive someone who has not used WordPress for asking me for help with a WordPress related issue but what I really can’t stand is when a WordPress rookie, in their infinite wisdom, sends me an email or posts on the item discussion flat out proclaiming my theme doesn’t work despite the 380+ other happy customers and the live preview suggesting otherwise.

The point of Lorem Ipsum is that it has no meaning so viewers are not distracted from the design trying to read the content.

The concept is great but as a premium website template the design is pretty poor.

So if I take my Escalade to “West Coast Customs” and have them pimp it out, they aren’t allowed to show it off as work they’ve done simply because someone else made it? I code PSD designs and re-design things others have done all the time, does it mean I shouldn’t show it off? nope. Does it mean I should give credit where credit is due? yep.
West Coast Customs don’t claim to be a vehicle manufacturer or vehicle designers. They clearly state they customise vehicles.

I agree with you. Even worse than this is when a Web Designer’s portfolio IS a customised theme (unless it’s there own theme of course). Unfortunately I have seen this happen as well.

  • Get used to rejection. It’s not personal.
  • When you think your theme is ready to be submitted to the marketplace, go back and make it better.
  • Test, test and test some more. It will save you time and effort later on.

That’s really cool. There was a similar thing a few years ago by Burger King involving a guy in a chicken costume.

I’m slowly evolving my own simple framework to use but it’s not very consistent between themes at the moment.
