Since when? Your ITEM is exclusive, not the design.

I don’t think you’ll be able to do it unless it’s WAY different or unless you opt out of exclusivity. But as others have said I would double check with Envato Support.

I’ve flagged this post for staff reply since I would also like to know if that is allowed or not. As far as I understood this should be allowed because it is NOT the same version with all the features instead it’s a “trimmed” version with less features. But let’s see what the officials have to say :)

hi infuse, thank you :) i don’t know there is feature for flagging question for staff reply. haha. i also wonder if its possible to do. its will really help to promote themes and increase exposure outside themeforest especially when its have a lot of download.

in short yes its okay to do so as long as its not the same files etc

theres tons of authors that just give the PSD away I believe(DDstudios) at one point ran a site dedicated to theme PSD ’s from authors here

theres also CC authors who give free versions of their plugins away but have a premium option
