Just for the record to make things clear…
I received an official response: you can’t create a new theme/template with a title that already exists. Authors in question have been contacted to rename their items.
For designthemes and BuddhaThemes: I’m sorry for the inconveniences, but I believe you wouldn’t be happy either in the same situation.
Still waiting for an official response. Also submitted a ticket. (#PEV-800-88757)
I just saw a WP theme with the same name as my XHTML template (and I had a WP theme with the same name in the past and planning to release a 2nd version of it)
Mine was the 1st template released with this name…
Is this allowed? Does this mean that I can create a site template named Avada to gain more sales with that?
I had some free time and created a recent tweets widget which uses the new API v1.1
Feel free to extract the code and use it in your themes.
feel free to use my widget! It uses the new API v1.1.http://wordpress.org/plugins/recent-tweets-widget/
Yeah, probably I was too industrious..
GRRR!!! I’ve spent hours to prepare existing themes for the new post format UI and now it’s gone… Great!http://make.wordpress.org/core/2013/05/29/post-formats-ui-is-exiting-core-will-live-as-a-plugin/
Summary… I tried to follow these threads in the last hour and this is how I see this:
- IndustrialThemes’ GrandMag theme was ripped off and uploaded as XY theme
- XY theme was taken down because it was a ripp off
- User ct19 says he’s the owner of WaleDesign account, the account that the XY theme was uploaded from. He also says that he bought this theme design from a guy named Dorian for $10k and he (ct19/WaleDesign) thought this design is unique and he can sell it on TF, I guess
So probably this Dorian guy copied GrandMag theme and sold it to ct19/WaleDesign for $10k, so ct19 is a victim of a big scam.
Am I correct? (Maybe not)
