Thanks for the Quick Reply , but the link you suggested does not Solve My Query , its not expressly written that i cannot sell a Wordpress theme made from a Bought Web Template ,

Because i have seen few author’s Wordpress themes on TF , whose web Template was made By a Different Author ?

Or are you suggesting that i need a Extended License from that Author ?

You would need both extended license and permission from the template author.

If you intend to convert a HTML template bought from TF to a WP theme and sell it subsequently (without modifications in the design), you still need to talk to the author for a ‘collaboration’ even if you want to purchase an Extended License.

Here is some info from the license terms :
2.You are licensed to use the Item to create one single End Product for yourself or for one client (a “single application”), and the End Product may be Sold.

3.An End Product is one of the following things, both requiring an application of skill and effort.

    (a)For an Item that is a template, the End Product is a customised implementation of the Item.

8.You can’t re-distribute the Item as stock, in a tool or template, or with source files. You can’t do this with an Item either on its own or bundled with other items, and even if you modify the Item. You can’t re-distribute or make available the Item as-is or with superficial modifications.

Hi, about you saw some authors wordpress theme made by differet author. Because of these designer cooperate with the coder then just sell on coder account not means coder buy item from designer author.

You bought a Extend License still can’t sell it on TF.

Correct. You can’t sell a theme made from another author’s work without their permission.
