My last thread was about a shortcode framework i was looking for, few days back i found a useful plugin created by one of the popular authors here on tf, orman clark’s shortcode plugin( which is released for free on his website ) i modified his plugin and added my own set of short codes, now my question is has anyone did this? is it ok to release a theme with his plugin attached in the package? i did not remove his name on the plugin everything remained intact except i added my set of shortcodes.

I am sure Orman Clark has a license attached to the plugin saying what you can and cannot do with it. So look for the license that came with the download….

And if there isn’t any you have to ask their permission….always. This goes for plugins on this marketplace as well (on extented license)

As far as I know, a lot of theme authors use this plugin in their themes. Just don’t integrate it to the theme.

All the best,
Kris
