Themes compatible with future versions? (3 posts)

    I'm new to WordPress and very impressed about the possibilities.

    One question: If I buy a template, will it be compatible with future versions of WordPress or is a template always tailor made for one wp version?

    We try to maintain backwards compatibility in templates. There may be new template features that your template doesn't support, but there will be plenty of people writing tutorials for adding that functionality. So your worst case scenario is likely that your template won't support some new fancy feature, not that it'll break.
