Actually it’s not, you can. It has been clarified a few months ago:
Thanks… I didn’t know about that.
What about having a button (On/Off) Timthumb (with the default value on Off), and if Off, to use another script as aqua resizer, filosofo… This is a rejecting reason any more? I would like to know because currently I’m working to a new theme and I don’t want to loose time and finally the item will be rejected.
I hope it’s a start some real theme authors develop their own stuff
Funny because in your latest theme you are using prettyphoto, flexslider, vegas, why didn’t you code these yourself? Are you not a real author?It’s the same for everyone, we buy/use ready code because it’s convenient, saves time, and there is no point reinventing the wheel
+1 … The main difference between what he uses (prettyphoto, flexslider etc) and CC plugins, is that they are for free (unless you “buy their authors a beer”) and the CC plugins are not.
OK so we’re also confused: We – as an author – CANNOT give permission to our customers about including our products in their themes (if they purchased an extended license of course)?
Probably if you give us your permission. I was about to buy an extended licence of your Layer Slider but I’m waiting for something clear. Otherwise I think we, as TF authors won’t buy extended licences but regular licences just for presentation…
Again, I’m agree to pay the regular licence every time I use a plugin in my themes just for presentation. If any one of the buyers likes the plugin, they should buy the licence for that plugin. It’s fair…
But these new licences should be respected by all authors and all items, not just the new items. So the old items with integrated plugins should not offer them anymore even they paid for extended licences.
We already understood that. But how remains with this difference between the old and new items which have the plugins integrated. The old ones will have more more sales and the new ones don’t. This is my point of view… There should be no difference between the old and new items. The buyers of these kind of items should buy themselves the licence. Not only the buyers of the new items. That’s not fair… Thanks
I quite don’t understand and I would like somebody from staff to clear the things. I see that if we bought something with the old extended license, we can still use that item in our end item. Yesterday I bought a slider plugin with extended license I think with few hours before this changes. But till I finish my theme there will be some time, probably 3 weeks… I understand that I can use the old license. But if I buy another plugin with extended license from now on, then my buyers should buy the regular license for that product also?... An what happens with those popular themes which have 2 or more such kind of plugins? Probably they will have much more sales than now, right?... I mean there are no equal chances between the old and the new items which have these plugins integrated.
That is not fair! The same thing should happen for anybody, and for all themes with these kind of plugins already included, and their buyers should buy also a regular license. This thing should not happen only for authors who will integrate the plugins from now on.
There won’t be any arrangement between the two authors… So please guys, be more precise.
I noticed that those authors who had the top switcher bar implemented are covered. If somebody clicks on “purchase”, then they will be redirected to themeforest with their referal…
