Stripping WordPress link and theme link from a site
Hey folks. I was doing some searching on a guy that use to be on Flip This House or some similar show when I ran across his website.
At first I was interested in what he’s been doing since his stints on cable came to an abrupt end and now he appears to in the informercial game, but then after reading some comments I noticed that he seemed to be using WordPress. I say “seemed” because a cursory look didn’t reveal any links to WordPress or mention of the software other than the About page which is stock. That kind of irked me so I checked the source code. Yep, WordPress and he’s using the “Lavrentis” them, again without credit. I know that CMS developers are kind or serious about stripping the logos and/or links to the authors page, so I was curious if WordPress is also concerned with modifications like this since the blog software and I believe this particular theme are released under the GPL.
I tried searching WordPress.org for an answer, but that and Google didn’t offer any answer other than several links to the GPL agreement and I didn’t see anything in there about maintaining links. I have no interest in stripping the links from my site, just wondering if this kind of stuff is even kosher.
