I have been using the Motion theme for years now but it has not been maintained or updated for over 2 years and is missing some of the newer features.
I’ve created a new theme called Motion Reloaded, changed a bit of css, created a few extra page templates, fixed a strange <pagetitle> problem and updated the main code to offer all the features of WP v3 (changeable background, top menu, header image etc).
I Know it’s fine to use the changed theme on my own site but I’m not that good with licences and I can’t find an email address for the original theme author.
I wanted to know if it is OK (within the terms of the GPL license) to upload the updated theme to WordPress? It’s a nice theme and it’s a shame to see it die.
I wait to be schooled in the GPL licence….
