    Hi All,

    Just a question about letting people download free themes from my site.

    Is there a place / site where I can download themes then upload them to my site for others to download. ? They would need to be free themes and of course I’m not charging anyone so the download would be free.

    Or would it be allowed and better to post a little note on my site and linking to the site that has the download ?

  • etiquette requires you not put them on your site without permission from the author

    the 2nd method is preferable if you don’t get permission

    Speaking as a theme dev, the first option could be potentially dangerous as you would not be alerted to any theme updates – including any that related to security issues.

    1st issue also has issues. If you were hacked and someone downloaded a corrupt version of the file, it’s often seen as the DEVELOPER’s responsibility to fix it, even though it was way outside their control.

    cool. Cheers lads. Linking it is 😉
