Clean Home theme no longer available for wordpress.org? (8 posts)

    Hi - I'm switching a client from wordpress.com to a self-hosted wordpress so we can add plugins and other fancy stuff. I thought - no problem. Clean Home was her theme for wordpress.com and Clean Home is available for wordpress.org, so I'll just upload that theme at the self-hosted site, apply the custom css, do an import and voila! Website! (well, more or less)

    While Clean Home comes up as an option in google when I search for .org themes, I cannot find it on wordpress.org to install it. It just redirects back to the theme search page. Anyone know what's up with that?

    Oh, nice! I will try this out and do an install on a test domain according to the instructions in that thread. My only fear is that this theme has languished so long without updates that it won't be compatible with the most current version of WP, but I guess we'll find out. Worst case scenario, I have to redesign the client's website from scratch. ;) I'll update later today as to whether or not it works in case anyone else is searching for answers to this same question. Thanks, alchymyth!

    The Clean Home Theme was suspended in the official WordPress Theme repository, due to a license policy violation. The "pro" version of this Theme has a license that is not GPL-compatible. Specifically, the usage restriction that differentiates the "pro" and "developer" versions of the Theme is not GPL-compatible:

    This package is the same as the Pro Pack, but allows a developer to use our theme as the basis of any project.

    Oh, that's no good! O_O Thanks for the lowdown, Chip.
    Just to be clear - assuming Clean Home (from the archives) works, I can still install it, yes? I would not be violating anything, right? Also - Google tells me that the Gazelle Themes site (Clean Home's developer) "may be compromised" and it doesn't appear to have been updated in quite some time. I'd be leery of trying to download (and definitely not purchase) the theme from there.

    Correct. It is still available in SVN, for those who know how to access subversion. The Theme is simply not being publicized/distributed through Extend/Themes anymore.

    Well, dang. I am using SCPlugin to do this, since I'm on a mac, and following the TortoiseSVN instructions (since apparently they are basically the same, more or less) but what I am getting is this error:

    OPTIONS of 'https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/clean-home': Server certificate verification failed: issuer is not trusted (https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com)

    ???
    Any advice?

    ... or I could have just googled this error like a normal person.

    For those following the instructions from alchymyth's links, if you're using SCplugin to download your files and you are getting the above error, please see this thread over at this site:
    http://old.nabble.com/SCPlugin-giving-the-message-%22Server-certificate-verification-failed%3A--certificate-issued-for-a-different-hostname,-issuer-is-not-trusted%22-on-first--checkout-td25809151.html

    (longest url ever?)

    Or, just do this:
    Open Terminal
    Type in: /usr/local/bin/svn ls https://......
    It will ask you if you want to temporarily or permanently accept the "fishy" SSL. Type 'p' for permanent. Then go back to the checkout process from the SCplugin menu and complete your data transfer as outlined here.

    I'll post this over in a couple other relevant places, also, if others are running into similar issues.

    Now to see if this theme works with my wordpress install (fingers crossed).
