Hey,

I was just wondering, is it ok to give my new HTML item as a freebie on my website and then sell its WordPress version here? Does the “exclusive-author” apply to this, when it’s the same item, but the HTML would be for free on my site and WP version here?

I think you can do that. HTML templates and Wordpress themes are different item types so my guess is it shouldn’t be problem.

One thing you should think of though, is that when you give the HTML version out for free, someone else could take the same HTML version and also turn it into a theme, sinche the HTML was free to use…

I think also, but I’d ask support to clarify this case. As far as I know there’s no problem with giving PSD template for free in own site and selling same template as HTML / WordPress theme here.
