I have a buyer who wishes to create a WordPress plugin out of one of my JavaScript files. On the “Extended License Examples” page it says:

“JavaScript component to be used in a template which is then sold (including on CodeCanyon or ActiveDen).”

I’m a bit confused whether it’s allowed or not because I don’t think a WP plugin classifies as a “template”. Plus, another problem is that I have been working on the very same plugin for quite some time now and would like to have my on version of the WP plugin online soon.

May be it should say “(including on ThemeForest or ActiveDen)” since it is about CodeCanyon files? Not sure :(

plus it’s like in themes and web templates you have your own design and a lot of other unique elements and the javascript file (like a slider for instance) is only a component or feature of the site whereas in a WP plugin the entire script is used as a basis of building the plugin where the client does nothing new but create a plugin interface for my work .. i don’t think it should be allowed .. unless of course the client makes significant changes or includes my script as a component in a bigger project/plugin ..

It is nothing wrong except CodeCanyon replaces ThemeForest. If we go through javascript items on CodeCanyon, it says:

Extended Licence
a website template for sale (including on ThemeForest or ActiveDen)

Probably it is mistakenly mentioned as CodeCanyon on this page:
