    Hi,

    I have used a template theme for my site http://www.homeremediescures.com/
    Can someone please tell me whether -
    1) We can modify a template; i.e size of the images and so on
    2) Move around search boxes and modify the header completely
    3) Not quote the creators of the theme which I am currently doing

    Is this allowed?

    From your style.css:

    This theme was designed and built by Liane Blanco aka Rose City Sister at
    RoseCityGardens.com.
    The CSS, XHTML and design is released under GPL:
    http://www.opensource.org/licenses/gpl-license.php

    You should read the license or ask the author.

    The license is too complicated to understand.
    I'm not sure how to contact the author.
    All I need to know is, whether I can keep the same design and remove the link to RoseCityGardens.com as well as make the changes I asked above in the header.

    I need an email address to ask permission to do these changes. Can anyone help me out in this matter?

    hey, page source clearly shows -
    <!-- optional link to RoseCityGardens.com -->

    I believe I can modify it as per my requirement.
    Please confirm so I can be doubly sure and make the changes I want.

    You can do whatever you like to the theme with no worries of copyright infringement.
