So I’m in the process of creating the demo for my WordPress theme in which I’m also supporting WooCommerce. However, I can’t find an option in the WooCommerce settings with which I can make sure that people are not actually able to ‘buy’ the products that I am showing in the demo. As in I can’t find an option like ‘enable demo mode’.
I didn’t find anything in WooCommerce docs but after searching in Google I found that by checking ‘Enable site wide store notice’ I can show a message that the site is in demo mode, and by doing this, the demo mode will also be enabled.
I guess I can disable buying if I don’t provide any of my account information, but I want to be 100% sure about this and would love to follow what is generally done by the authors here. Also I want to avoid showing that site wide message, just for the sake of enabling the demo mode for WooCommerce.

I’m creating a Wordpress theme in which I’ve created a ‘Shortcode Generator’ using the TinyMCE popup window, that I see in a lot of the themes. The problem is that, since TinyMCE uses an iframe to create that popup window, I can’t find a way to use wp_enqueue_style() and wp_enqueue_script() to load css and js files specifically for that window.
Right now I’m using the <script> and <link> tags for that, which of course is not allowed in the the Theme submission requirements.
I would really like to know if I’m ok to use it here, as I really don’t find any other way with which this can be done.
tommusrhodus saidCan you explain a little more about what exactly you mean here please? I don’t think I want to sell my theme as GPL, because as far as I know this would allow the buyers to sell my theme elsewhere. However, I also want to use some third party software and frameworks like Redux Framework for theme options, that are licensed under GPLv2, and also not have my theme licensed under GPL. Is that possible?
We sell themes under a “split” license, so some is GPL, some is not.
So I’ve been working on a Wordpress theme for quite sometime now, in which I’ve avoided using any software that were licensed under GPL, thinking that I’ll be forced to license my theme under GPL as well, as I believe we had an option to whether choose a GPL license or some other (‘better’) one.
However, now I can’t seem to find that option or information on choosing the license. Also I checked some of the recent themes that I bought and all of them have GPL license in them.
Can someone please kindly let me know about this? As I am very confused, and I would especially love to know if having a GPL licensed software in my theme would make any difference or not, as you can imagine, I put a lot of effort and time in avoiding the GPL licensed stuff that I would have loved to use in my theme, and now I almost feel like an idiot (almost only because I’m still not sure about it).
So yeah, please let me know about this and thank you very much!
I’m working on a Wordpress theme that is almost complete. I just have a question regarding whether you guys use Regenerate Thumbnail plugin to allow Wordpress to regenerate the uploaded images to the sizes that you set with ‘add_image_size()’ function.
I ask this because regenerating thumbnails seems like a very important feature, but I’m not sure if I’ve seen any theme using it, not that I’ve seen or inspected many. Just want to know if you guys use it or what you think about this.
So I’ve been trying to find out if I can use a jQuery slider in a theme that I’m creating, by converting it into a Wordpress plugin. The slider is licensed under MIT and it says that it’s free to use in both personal and commercial projects.
I’ve seen a lot of themes have their own plugins (apart from Layer slider or Revolutionary slider), so I want to know if it’s ‘ok’ for me to create my own Wordpress slider plugin, and include it as bundled plugin in my theme.
Please help me with this question. Thanks!
I’ve worked really hard for a theme and I’m going to submit it soon. I’m just worried that since some person knows the email address of my account and he/she might be able to hack into it and steal the money.
I know this sounds absurd but this is what I read somewhere, that you should never let others know about your themeforest email address. Is this a thing? Please let me know regarding this.
