I see. It’s the booking system you’ve bundled in your recent WP Hotel theme, right?
You may have missed this part of the official CodeCanyon licensing FAQ?
You’re NEVER allowed to use a plugin in a theme just because you purchased an extended license. You ALWAYS also require the author’s written permission. This can be a email or other written form. If you already have this, you’re fine. Otherwise, you’ll need to obtain it. If you can’t, you’ll want to contact Envato support to explain the situation and potentially seek a refund so that you can instead work with another author. It’s typically best to contact any author BEFORE purchasing the license to see if they’ll grant you permission.
The fact the author has asked you to remove the plugin from your theme could mean that the author has no intention of ever giving permission for your use. However, the author may never have been informed of your use case / doesn’t remember that you’ve purchased an extended license. Did you inform the author of the account / theme names that would be bundling the plugin? No? Again, merely proving that you purchased an extended license is not sufficient. In either case, you have no choice right now but to remove it until you’ve come to an agreement with the author. Failure to do so immediately could result in having a DMCA notice served on you or worse.
It’s always the buyer’s (whether they’re also developer or not) responsibility rather than Envato’s to ensure proper licensing is purchased.
This is a general forum. You post may never been seen by whom you intend it to be read by. Here’s a link to the profile page of the theme author where you can copy and paste the above message into the provided message email text area on the that page…http://themeforest.net/user/FRESHFACE
Wouldn’t it not be better then to skip needing an extra plugin and just build a custom admin panel? I suppose it’s not as easy to snap into place, but it would be more brandable and almost as reusable over time.
If you don’t want to ship a separate plugin, the built-in WP Settings API is always available that many either are unaware of or forget about. Since not every project will need the additional weight / power of an alternative option framework, it can often be a good fit.
Though when you need do things it can’t, plugin option frameworks are a good alternative IMO.
Redux Premium? I thought this is 100% open-source. Can you please confirm if you are paying to use redux on your theme. I just saw someone posted this on facebook group : http://reduxframework.com/premium/
Are you merely opposed to the sale of a premium version? “Open Source” does not equal free AFAIK.
This is the free version which will remain free – http://wordpress.org/plugins/redux-framework/
The “premium” version a “pro” version above and beyond that of the “free” version. View it as a thank you for continuing to support the Redux project and making the “free” possible for those who profit from it but never contribute either money or code back to it.
LOL! I read the thread headline and instantly wondered why if it’s “now working” as it says then why why was the OP posting about it here. Figures that it was just a typo.
I sort of feel bad for BBM (Blackberry Messaging) users because that app isn’t even worth 1 billion and if FB manages to blow this up even more than it is already, BBM might become even more irrelevant that it already is.
