Hello guys,

ThemeForest today has published the following theme [link removed].

@ Stylemediavn The author has taken much inspiration from my theme [link removed] and used the same background images, the same patterns and also part of the code developed by me.

has ever happened to you? What can I do?

Thank you and good work

Hmm, looks the same, but this theme [link removed] imho me is kinda unique, however both themes have similarity, if you visit corporate category, you’ll see how many themes have similar genre. I think the author didn’t copy everything from your theme but taken some few inspiration, just like any other themes.

One thing that I’m curious about is that how did you know the author uses part of the code you’ve developed? As of the moment I’m writing this, the said theme has no sales.

Anyways, I’m planning to purchase the said theme, but I’m thinking about it as it might be taken down.

Good luck to both of you :)

Hahahaha dude, some people.. They are the same! He took the design, broke it into multiple pages, tweaked few things and reviewer probably didn’t notice as such designs don’t come often.

Please do contact the support and let us know how it goes. Also, the submenu jumps each time when hovering on item, as that part of CSS he probably wrote himself :mad:

I was almost sure it’s his first theme without even looking. Booo!
