    Hello!
    I am thinking of starting to make Worpress sites for people at a cost but not sure if this is a breach of Worpress' T&C's... Can anyone tell me if I can do this? By the way, I will be using my own themes and own plug-ins so won't be using other peoples content!

    Thanks

    Calum

    As far as the WordPress software is concerned, go for it.

    Yeah, I've made a somewhat business out of it.

    You aren't charging for the software itself nor are you selling the software itself. You are charging for your services and knowledge in putting it together and making it function in the way the customer wants.

    Nothing illegal about that or against any terms I am aware of.

    Where can I find a wordprees.org user agreement so I can read it to find out if its legal to sell my site

    And it's legal to sell your site.

    So... is there an issue with selling your website if you've used other people's free themes and plug-ins?

  10. Nope. Plugins etc are all released under the GPL license. So long as you don't violate that, by saying they can't resell or something, then you're fine,

    Thanks for taking the time to answer that! It's been bugging me for a few days.

    Hello,
    I am making a website for my mum and she asks me to add stuff to it every day :-s i was wondering if there was a way/ i could allow her to access a simple cms so she could login and just add pages, text, blog and media but not mess around with themes.

    Thankyou!

    Give her Editor (rather than Admin) status.
