Information about Creative Tim licences

Some new information

Creative Tim has new bootstrap5 themes and of course, I was curious.  I almost bought a developer license again, but then I checked their license policy.  I am sure that when I bought Gaia and others (I don't think I used them, maybe denice theme was available for free), there was a different developer license available. 

Now they separated it into company and enterprise licenses and formerly developer is now called a company license. 

 With developer license I can't :

  • Create a Template, UI Kit, Dashboard, Theme, or Plugin using the Item and make it available for sale or free. For example, You can't purchase an HTML template, convert it to a WordPress theme and sell or give it to more than one client.

I can't create a free theme!  You can do this with themeforest themes with a single license, so imagine my surprise.  Of course, I didn't buy the new bundle. But I asked them to upgrade my old bundle and they kindly give me one freelancer license for testing and learning.  It means that I will do themes only for myself. 

What about old developer licenses?  

  1. The License grants permission to 5 (five) to 20 (twenty) persons to access and use the Item.  Again funny, I am sure this wasn't mentioned before.  (Later I found that it means to add access to their admin area, I have never tried this)

I can:

  • Create multiple End Products for you or your company.
  • Create an End Product where the end-user is charged with a monthly/annually subscription plan (SaaS - Software as a Service).
  • Create multiple End Products for multiple clients where the End Products can be sold to those clients for a one-time fee.
  • Create multiple End Products for your University/School.
  • Modify, change or manipulate the Item. You can combine the Item with other works and make a derivative work from it. Change the colors, elements, typography, and images. The resulting works are subject to the terms of this license.

It means all Gaia or Hestia themes are all right.  If you stole it, it is your problem.  

Again, it is their policy and they deserve any penny that they want. Their themes are very good and they helped me to learn how to use sass.  And again, they give me a license for personal use for free.  

But it means that there is no point in developing new themes with their free version (I hope that they are GPL licensed, I didn't check it).  

I am glad that I let remove my themes from and now I need to clean my GitHub repos. 

Thank you to all that helped me with Gaia and Hestia.  For bootstrap3 and bootstrap4 themes I still have the developer license, but I can't give them for free.



This is the original license for all my former themes:

So I was right, it was totally different then and so here is no problem with Gaia and other themes.

In fact, I have never notice this because with WP plugin it is free. I will see what it does after free trial.

Well it's nice but 10 dollar a month for a business use pro domain... that costs more than the hosting frown

And yes, it works very nicely... I use it long time. Just first or second time used on e107 site.

@Alex I have that free version. It is enough for me, I was just curious what cookies are used with e107. You can add new one manually too. There is similar WP plugin, I had almost e107 version too. But I needed that scan and WP version is very limited agains online solution.
