That make sense but is a little confusing, since our custom themes use WP tags, doesn’t that mean someone can lift and redistribute anything that has utilizes WP code or has WP code within it, like all the index.php, header.php, sidebar.php, functions.php, etc…?

From the TF “Pricing and Licensing Statement”

“SINGLE USE , LIMITED LICENSE : The price listed for all Products provides you, the purchaser, with a license limited to your use only, and you agree not to engage, directly or indirectly, without the written consent of us or the supplying Member, licensing, sublicensing, promotion, advertising or distribution of the Product.”

The GPL wipes out the TF agreements. Yes all your php code you have in your themes are GPL . But, take out you css and your images and you don’t have a lot to work with. Their are enough free ones that look like that.

All your .php files and anything else that uses Wordpress code is automatically under the GPL . Anyone that buys it can re-release it, modify it, or even sell it themselves.

What your really selling a license to is your images, CSS and JavaScript; which is not covered under the GPL .

Hello,

I have a template in the HTML section that I turned into a Wordpress theme. Although the “standards have changed since the approval of [my] HTML Template”.

http://greenlightdevelopers.com/themeforest/businessgrow/

Any ideas on what to change?

Why would they ask someone with no experience in webdesign to redesign their political website?

Isn’t that the whole point of ThemeForest, so that someone with very little web design experience can still have a good looking website? Campaigns are run on volunteers.

For which template to actual use, thats hard to tell.

Also at graphicriver there is a nice campaign button http://graphicriver.net/item/campaign-button-grunge-background/31456

Probably have your .htaccess file done wrong. If you make the file have full read/write access Wordpress can properly build it.

Naa, dullRAZOR mentioned CMS as a need. These are part of our arsenal. :) I really like Silver Stripe too but haven’t had a whole lot of time to use it or projects for it yet. Soon though!

No, just that it has to be CMS based, didn’t care which one. dullRAZOR is looking for template recommendations.

Seems a bit lame to blame it on the Apple placement. Other templates clearly didn’t get the same restriction. Stick to the original statement: this just isn’t aesthetically pleasing enough.

That one isn’t using it as part of the design, its part of the news story. Which excepts it from a copyright complaint.
