Hey everyone, lead dev of Redux Framework here.
One of our community has been hard at work on a theme that was accepted this morning, his first one actually. I’ve helped him from time to time as he’s been working on this. The sad thing was the reaction of the community. Claims of “theif” and “copy” were rampant. I suggested he not respond, and flag the comments.
Knowing that the author of Oberen did no such thing, I set out to prove it. Unfortunately the theme was just removed by ThemeForest without any notice. Anyways, here’s the proof these themes are extremely different.
First, a video comparing the two themes. The differences in the backend will be obvious immediately:
Seems that all the commenters and the theme author of Dalton are from the same place, and the theme was ripped off by them. Alas, sad day. Well, not much can be done.
