    Have you tried other free themes?

    Yes I have. Pagelines is an excellent theme, but should not be put in the free section if it isn’t free.

    Why does everything have to be free? If you like the free version of the theme, and want the added functionality of the paid version then pay for it.

    It is free as you could use, but if you like to use every single part of it, you have to pay. It is the same like Shareware or whatsoever. First it is free, even nearly everything is to use, but if you like to bulk convert/download/use it, you get the restrictions.
    So all in all, it will be still free, just restricted.

    You saw yourself that Pagelines is a great Theme (i checked it out a while ago and i must admit it IS a damn nice one) and if someone puts that much work into something, he/she/it wants to get a little reward for it 😉 and THAN you can use it with all it’s functions

    This comes up from time to time. *drinks more coffee*

    but should not be put in the free section if it isn’t free.

    Theme authors can host “lite” versions of their themes here as long as the hosted version here meets the strict requirements.

    The review process for themes is thorough why not give it a read at this link?

    The PageLines theme here is fully functional and not crippled in anyway. It does inform you that a version behind a paywall exists with even more functionality but that is allowed.

    Thanks Jan! Am new here and appreciate the civilized nature of your reply. 🙂

    You’re welcome. Look around, I think you’ll like it here. 😉

    The theme policy says:

    “All the themes we host here are Open Source. If you want your theme to be proprietary or promote things that violate WordPress’ license on your site, the directory probably isn’t the best home for your work.”

    Pagelines already agreed to open source this theme when uploaded here.

    So, this means we (php devs) can change the code and remove all the restrictions set PHP files and use full features with no cost. I have already nulled other plugins as it comply with above statement policy.

    Do i understand it right? Any comments from seniors?

    Here you go … this comes when you go to upload your theme on this website.

    I have already nulled other plugins as it comply with above statement policy.

    Yea seems like you know all about ripping off premium plugins then.

    Sure PageLines is GPL’d you are freely available to edit the files and re-release it as your own theme.

    Where in the statement does it say that ‘NULLING’ anything is compliant with the GPL?

    By null i mean same GPL flexi.
    Null was used as a slang, as most people don’t know this GPL rule.

    I think you meant something else, i mean looking at your profile does not show any GPL ‘flexi’ as you put it plugins.

    Look Simon, Be respectful.
    I posted here to ask, if i understand it right?

    I do respect the commercial terms of others and pay where people deserve.

    I read that all things here are GPL, so we should not pay if it works by editing code (and possibly make it public). Correct me if there is something missing.

    Sorry didnt realise i was being disrespectful, if so i apologise. I will quote myself in case you missed it:

    Sure PageLines is GPL’d you are freely available to edit the files and re-release it as your own theme
