Connect an API key to install a wordpress theme

    By default, every wp-theme installation should require an API Key. For free themes, API keys should be auto generated, WP shouldn't prompt for an API key for free themes during installation process.

    For premium theme installation, WordPress should definitely ask for a API key before installation itself.

  3. Why? What would you use an API key for here?

    You have this tagged as 'protect' themes but I can't see how it would.

    WP doesn't prompt for any API key, and in general those should be at the behest of products that must communicate home to provide content/data/information that is dependent on said key. Otherwise we needlessly slow down everything.

    Should not be present in WordPress, because WordPress is free for anyone !

  5. APIs don't mean not-free, just to point that out.
