A few years ago i was helping set up a website and we got a theme from here and I haven`t been involved really since. I now hope to begin a new website and have seen a theme i like for $60 and was about to buy it but there was something in my mind that i remembered from 4 years ago and I just want to clarify. If i remember correctly when we bought the theme 4 years ago there were plug-ins that came with it and it looked great (i think one was a slider) but there was something about you had to renew subscription for premium plug ins within the theme and there were about 7 ! And I thought - no way ! And I just replaced them with alternative free plug ins but i would have preferred the ones that came with it.
So my question is…is this still the case ? When I spend $60 of my hard earned money will it stop at that or will I have to keep spending extra every year ?
