  • I would like to have a go at licenseing a theme but I have spent over an hour looking at all the written stuff and have no clue This is what I am looking at, {http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/gpl-faq.html}

    It is mind boggeling to say the least.

    Is there a simple method?

  • Just include some words in the theme file (or a accompagnying read me) that states what the license is.

    Eg the gpl, or a creative commons (http://creativecommons.org/license/)

    See the “how-to”: http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/gpl-howto.html
    Quote from the page:

    Whichever license you plan to use, the process involves adding two elements to each source file of your program: a copyright notice (such as “Copyright 1999 Linda Jones”), and a statement of copying permission, saying that the program is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (or the Lesser GPL).

    I’d go for the Some Rights Reserved (must give credit and cannot do commercial work with it w/o your permission) for any theme you make.
