    Hello. I’m working on edits, css & php, of an existing theme (Sight – http://wpshower.com/themes/sight/).

    I’ve changed colors, sidebar, footer, & header dimensions and elements. It’s still close to the original settings, but I’m not sure what I should do with the style.css header details?

    Should I leave it, although I’ve made adjustments? Or should I shout out their website?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Unless you’re distributing the Theme/stylesheet, you don’t need to do anything.

    If you are distributing the Theme/stylesheet, the requirement is to retain the original work’s copyright notice, generally in style.css for Themes.

    Something like this:

    MyTheme WordPress Theme, Copyright 2011, Yourname
    Derived from Original Theme, Copyright Year, Developername

    Thank you so much! I just wanted to verify, I didn’t want to “do the wrong thing”.
