WordPress without WordPress... (2 posts)

    Hello all,

    I recently added the WordPress (WP) option to my web host and am using the Twenty Eleven Dark theme (2011D). Unfortunately the performance is slower than I would like, so I am thinking of uninstalling the WP option from my web page. However, I would like to continue using the WP 2011D theme. I have created a static web page based on the WP 2011D theme and it is all working well.

    However, I want to make sure this won't violate any copyrights or break any rules I may not know about. I would like to continue using the style.css and dark.css files. I will leave those files untouched, which includes leaving the GPLv2 header in style.css. I was also planning on leaving a footer at the bottom of my pages. Maybe not the default "Proudly powered by WordPress", but perhaps "HTML/CSS inspired by WordPress", or some such, and leave that as a link back to the WordPress web site. Can anyone here let me know if this is against any known rules? Should I ask someone at WordPress for explicit permission to do this? Or is this okay to do without me having to do anything else?

    What you want to do is fine. The GPL license lets you do stuff like that. You can also remove the "powered by wordpress" on the bottom without any prices.
