Theme footer author links

  • Many themes have live author credit links in the footer. Some themes have 3 or more author related links down there (instead of like 1). Are we obligated (legally etc) to include these links when we use a theme?

    I’ve noticed when running into blogs using many of these themes that many people remove the links.

  • usually the theme author includes whether or not they like their links or any credits left in, its best to read the README and any other docs included w/ the download.

    Are you obligated? Depends on what the accompanying docs/readmes say, and perhaps how clear of a conscious you want.

    Some ppl also leave them in even w.o the author asking.

    Its not much to ask that someone get credit for a theme they created.

    I’ll look at the readme thanks.
