Hi Everyone,

Can you please confirm if you are paying to use redux on your theme. I just saw someone posted this on facebook group : http://reduxframework.com/premium/

Thanks

This could be a good reason to find another one, there are plenty out there with same or even better features.

A donate button will better than “Developing Redux is a time-consuming process, so your support ensures that we can continue to provide you with the best support for the best framework ever built!” Time for finding another framework.

We were looking at Redux when the Envato posted about the framework, but it seems to be a lot more firepower than what was needed for basic plugins.

Not sure what the plugin itself does if the point of the framework was to be able to integrate options capability into a plugin or theme. Still, I suppose that is the “100% Open Source” part.

I don’t begrudge the service charge though. The donate button may sound like a better idea, but depending on the crowd, they would probably cut their revenue stream by half the first day and down to nothing the following month unless engaging with their users on a pretty consistent level. People are notoriously cheap and hard to please, especially when stuff is free.

If you really want to make money off this, then create themes that use the framework like everybody else. It still puts you in a better position given that now you are a brand a lot of people recognize and respect. This direction they’ve taken is just wrong IMHO.

From what I read in the Premium offers, you can still use Redux with your themes. As a plugin. You can still activate it with TGM and configure it from your theme/plugin’s code. Sure, you don’t get all the bells and whistles, but you can still do it.

Wouldn’t it not be better then to skip needing an extra plugin and just build a custom admin panel? I suppose it’s not as easy to snap into place, but it would be more brandable and almost as reusable over time.

From a support / download perspective, don’t users like to have everything fit neatly into the same downloadable box? One would imagine if they required an additional plugin, you would get a lot of e-mails because so-and-so didn’t read the instructions.

Redux Premium? I thought this is 100% open-source. Can you please confirm if you are paying to use redux on your theme. I just saw someone posted this on facebook group : http://reduxframework.com/premium/

Are you merely opposed to the sale of a premium version? “Open Source” does not equal free AFAIK.

This is the free version which will remain free – http://wordpress.org/plugins/redux-framework/

The “premium” version a “pro” version above and beyond that of the “free” version. View it as a thank you for continuing to support the Redux project and making the “free” possible for those who profit from it but never contribute either money or code back to it.
