Dear all, greetings.

This is asked earlier, as I read couple of discussion on it…still asking again for final confirmation.

Say, I do not want to reinvent the wheel again…

http://themes.kadencethemes.com/virtue/ This is a free theme with gpl license. This has all the general options I need, like bootstrap, admin option SMOF, woocommerce integrated etc.

Now, is it ok, if I use this as the base framework for my item with my own design, images, css?

Or even, can I buy a wordpress/woocommerce theme from theme forest to have the regular functionality ready to use with my own design and submit?

Thank you so much, Regards, Enayet

110% you need permission from kadencethemes to use the copy you have there and again 1000% you cannot use an existing TF item as the base of your file. I suppose to be clear you could base your file on an existing psd or HTML file assuming you have the right license and permissions from the author but I guess that’s not really what you are talking about and that you are interested in the functionality and code. Bear in mind if you can’t write your own code from the ground up you will struggle here when it comes to support, updates etc. Good luck

Thank you charlie4282 for the details.

Yes, I am interested in the functionality and code, I will have my own design.

The theme I am referring is already listed in wordpress free theme directory.

http://wordpress.org/themes/virtue

I noticed authors can use plugins from wordpress plugin directory in the theme. That’s why I am asking.

Otherwise, I prefer to start with underscores.me theme.

Thanks.
