Those Who Submit Free Themes And Thanks

Everyday we receive a lot of great submissions that we love to feature. There is so much great design and creativity out there and those websites deserve to be recognized for that. One of the great things about the WordPress community is that there are many designers who work really hard to create free themes for others to use and are instantly provided with a great looking website. Unfortunately many of these free theme users try submitting their website to be featured here on our site. Now we understand that some themes are modified heavily to a point to where it almost doesn’t look like the original one and we like to recognize the work put into that, as long as they keep the original designer link. Now we usually weed out the free themes but occasionally one slips through and we feature a theme that’s not original. It’s usually because the footer link of the designer is removed or we’re just having a bad day. Any free themes submitted with footer links removed are reported to the original designer as they deserve credit for the hard work they have done.

We also want to thank those out there who leave feedback and help keep our board clean from free unmodified themes as well as any modified free themes that may have the original designer link removed. WordPress is a wonderful thing and it’s important to recognize the hard work designers and developers do for the community, as they are the reason of why we love WordPress so much.

    Hi. I agree with you. If they did modified the theme, at least they should retain the link back to the owner’s site.

    I create free WordPress themes too and I’m happy when WordPress users use my themes. Unfortunately, some of them tend to remove the link back to my site, which I hate so much.

    Hey,

    You’ve got one design listed that has ripped off another site completely. http://welovewp.com/gallery/personal-gallery/romain-libeau/ Just thought I’d let you know.

    You should set up a “report” link or a page for people to report stuff like this, free themes, ect.
