Re: Aperture

How does the pricing scheme and copyright work Stuart ?
If one buys this theme from you, does a portion go to WooThemes ? Is the theme author cool with his theme being ported ?

Thanks

Re: Aperture

Yes. I have permission to port ALL WooThemes and a fixed percentage will be going to them. Actually I have always asked for permission in advance to port all the themes I have done even if they are free. I just consider it common courtesy. My involvement with WooThemes though is far deeper than normal as you will see further down.

If you watch the Woothemes weblog you will shortly see a post by them about this.

Also, at the end of each year, probably just before Christmas, I shall donate 5% of my final earnings up to that point to the Devs so it is up to you lot whether they get a big present or a small present.

Tonight I am setting up a support forum which will be open to all buyers to join by invitation from me. It will only be concerned with purchased product so any WooThemes “freebies” such as Bueno will not be included there nor will any of my non-WooThemes themes.

Sometime over the weekend I shall be writing up a “sticky” on thebombsite.com to confirm this plus outline the buyers’ rights of use though at this point about the only thing that I shall insist on is that a link to “Designed by WooThemes” (or similar) be maintained somewhere in public view. You can modify them to your heart’s content and use them on as many sites as you wish.

When I started this project it was going to be hosted within WooThemes however their demographic is predominantly WP users and their reputation is very WP-based. They have already started promoting EE and Drupal variants at WooThemes but are not having much success with them, probably due to the “one-click” mentality of WP users, so it was decided that, whilst they continue to be happy for me to port their themes, it would be better for me to “go it alone” with their complete support.

At this point in time pricing will be a simple $20.00 per theme. I have no intention of setting up a membership scheme similar to WooThemes. That might change in the future but I doubt it. When I have enough themes available I may start doing something like “3 themes for $50.00” or similar.

So here I am. Does that answer your question Jaffer?

Woothemes FAQ clearly states:

Do I need to keep the WooThemes logo in the footer?

No! You can remove any credit link in the footer as described in our T&C .

Re: Aperture

No problem Sergey, as you can now see here I only ask that you retain links and references contained in the CSS templates. Most visitors will never see that, but you should now have an invitation to my new forum so we can take this conversation over there. Doesn’t really belong here. :)

Re: Aperture

Oh! I’m after an invitation like that. I just downloaded and installed the Aperture theme, it’s a beauty, and am tripping up a little with making it get along with 4.5.2

I saw that owner’s forum and that the entries for Aperture wear out around March this year, or TXP 4.2 – Does a little love still exist or did I goof and download something not 100% supported or compatible?

Your ports are stunning btw! Had no problem paying provided you still get a cut.

Re: Aperture

Hi Bryan. The invitation process is a manual one which means I can’t get it done until I get home from work. Yours should be winging it’s way over to you now.
