Hi, I wondered if I am allowed to use SlideDeck in my themes. If so, what will I need to include? (License or something?)

Thanks!

Your always best actually contacting the plugin author on this than speculating with more people with the same information as you. However, the free lite version says its released under GPL which means it can be used I believe.

I’d still email the author to check though.

Never heard of it before but thanks for bringing it to my attention. Seems like it should be ok to use.

well,

The GPU site says this:

“Does the GPL allow me to sell copies of the program for money?

Yes, the GPL allows everyone to do this. The right to sell copies is part of the definition of free software. Except in one special situation, there is no limit on what price you can charge. (The one exception is the required written offer to provide source code that must accompany binary-only release.)”

And the slidedeck license says the following:

“This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version. This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY ; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE . See the GNU General Public License for more details.”

So i think it’s possible….right\\ anyone…. thoughts?\\?!
