WP Theme Question

Hi all

i decided to create a new wp theme based on a website which i recently saw.

In which i really loved the look and feel. so i decided to develop a wp theme from scratch and release it on theme forest.

is that allowed ?

It depend on how inspired we are talking.

If it’s verging on a clone and esp of the original one is a corporate site, you could end up in a lot of trouble and it definitely either wouldn’t make it through or be removed if recognised

Thanks for your reply.

its not a corporate site its a site a wp plugin site. also they developed in wp and their theme says its GPL


Even if it is GPL, it’s the coding, not design. You cannot clone the website ( design ) as @charlie4282 states.

Thanks for your reply :slight_smile:
I am not cloning the entire website.
i am inspired with the design.
not even going to use single line of code wrote by them.
even that not allowed ?

i am not yet started. just want to clear things out.

Yes you can do it. If the elements you use ( images for example ) are not the same, there is no problem at all.

Thats cool :slight_smile: thanks for your reply.
