Just a question I found intriguing, and I can’t seem to find the answer on my own. My first guess would be they want to limit it to the higher price-point of WP themes, but personally I’d think the lost sales from people that only need an HTML version would be insignificant.

Forgot to ask, but I remember there were some changes regarding using plugins from CC. Do I just need to purchase an extended license, or is it something that needs to be arranged with the author of the plugin now?

As far as I know, you should buy an extended license + give the author permission.

For CC terms vary…

Sounds fair. Thank you for your help!

I want to build a theme, but I want it to be easily used by customers – Recent trends show some hate for shortcodes and are in favor of general plugins to improve theme compatibility and ease-of-use. What do you guys recommend?

Thanks,
Jar

What I use Hostgator and use addon domains. I think technically they are subdomains that look like distinct addresses.
In that example, I would purchase separate licenses for each one, then. That would fit my idea of an exception:
The exception would be if you intend on having semantically separate sites on the same domain. (Which wouldn’t be very semantic, would it? :P )

I’ll give a more clear example: If you run a website named tacobobs.com and have a blog at blog.tacobobs.com and a store at store.tacobobs.com, then it doesn’t seem fair to need to purchase multiple licenses. On the other hand, if you run 3 businesses and they are not related, even if they are hosted on the same primary domain, you should purchase 3 separate regular licenses.

Wow…Makes that them way too expensive for me on my personal sites. But you are confirming what I thought I was reading. That would be the first time I have run across a theme like that. I guess I will continue with my current vendor.

I would have to disagree with themeton, a domain includes all subdomains, so naturally if the license is for one domain, it includes any name.domain or domain/name as well.

The exception would be if you intend on having semantically separate sites on the same domain. (Which wouldn’t be very semantic, would it? :P )

I can’t help but read your posts with a thick Russian accent. I hope it’s true-to-life. That VK site looks like a total rip-off of Facebook…

@jr0131 Do you really think that pictures in this article are offending. If so, you should ask yourself why women sexualize themeselves ?

I have to agree with your first statement, those images in the post do not seem like a big deal. I have seen much worse on themes, so those are bad examples.

I would like to hear more behind the female psyche regarding this, though, because the analog (male models posing sexually) I do not find offensive at all.
