Hi guys.Since i didn’t found any thread related to my question i’ve decided to create a new one. I was wondering, is it possible to modify one of your existing theme globally ?I mean it is allowed on themeforest to do major changes to a theme, changing the entire design (optional,even changing the name) ?

If you meant doing all that and submitting the theme to TF as your own, then the answer is no.

But if you meant doing all that for a client or whatever ( not submitting to TF or another marketplace as your own theme )then the answer is yes.

I don’t know the official answer, but I’ve been publishing solid updates to my framework, sometimes which changes the output (most notably moving from the Theme Options panel I had to using the Theme Customizer API) without any problems. I upload these as updates though, not different products.

I would be careful though. If your theme doesn’t make it on the top charts it’s shelf life is probably pretty minimal to be dedicated a lot of time to really upping it’s game. After you’re buried in the crowd of themes – you’re buried for good.
