Your Questions About WordPress Themes

Chris asks…

WordPress Theme - clarifications, inquiries, questions ?

There are these people from freelancing sites and also from another download sites, who are selling me package of multiple premium wordpress themes for a very cheap price.

I search online and found out that those are around $30, $45, $60 and so on..

Why is that?

I think they bought those themseles, then seeling to to many people distributing it for profit.
They claimed that those are really allowed to sell.

Are those legal?

What could be the problems then?


Martin King answers:

WordPress themes are typically made by design teams and sold exclusively through their own brand or on community sites like Themeforest or Mojo Themes. If anyone is selling *outside* of these kinds of sources, they are probably doing so illegally.

If these themes come with no support, updates or anything of that sort, you'll know that they are pirated.

Themes almost always come with a terms of service statement that says you can use the theme on unlimited sites and can use them to develop sites on a freelance basis. However that does NOT mean anyone can simply re-sell them as-is. WordPress theme designers are hard workers and it takes a lot of time and effort for them to create themes from scratch. It is also their livelihood. If you see someone re-selling themes for their own profit, be sure to find the source of where those themes came from and report them to the original designer.

James asks…

Downloaded some WordPress themes. Now what?

Hello, I have recently downloaded the WordPress package from I have also downloaded several templates, but the templates just have JavaScript, PHP, and CSS files in them. No HTML, which means that they just give me the files, not the template.

How am I supposed to create a layout using just the CSS, PHP, and JavaScript files?

Martin King answers:

Hi Wendy,

WordPress themes contain PHP code called Template Tags, as well as HTML and CSS.

Because WordPress is database driven, as opposed to static HTML, the themes use these template tags to integrate WordPress functionality into a site.

In practice, you probably don't need to worry about how a theme is built unless you are creating one from scratch.

Most theme customization is done using CSS.

Here is a link to the WordPress Codex that explains how themes work:
