How much to customize

  1. Hi,

    I would appreciate any answer to this question. I recently purchased the value bundle with domain mapping, 10 gb space, video upgrade, space upgrade, and custom design. I have a question about CSS. How much can we customize the themes with the CSS code. Is there a restriction on customization on the free vs the premium theme. I have the premium theme "Photography" installed. What are my options. My theme the photography theme was designed by the theme foundry so can I claim the content the website content (I mean the content written by me) as my copyright or will there be any problems. Any way to write copyright my name on the theme for my content or this is not allowed because the theme was designed by theme foundry.

    The blog I need help with is omerkhanart.com.

  3. Note:

    May I remove credit links such as ‘Blog at WordPress.com’, theme, font, or toolbar links?
    All WordPress.com bloggers are required to maintain the credit links, even our VIP bloggers. Please do not hide the footer credits or the toolbar with CSS after purchasing a Custom Design upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions

    To post yopur own copyright notice using CSS editing requires placing it in a text widget and using position absolute.

    The copyright to original content you create (i.e. the writing) is always your own.

    To post yopur own copyright notice using CSS editing requires placing it in a text widget and using position absolute.

    That's just one possible solution.

    Any way to write copyright my name on the theme for my content?

    Yep! Give this a shot:

    #copyright:before {
    	content: "Copyright 0A9 Me. All rights reserved.";
    }

    Edit the text first, of course. Add that code to your Appearance → Themes → Customize → CSS panel to see it in a live preview.

  5. How much can we customize the themes with the CSS code?

    As much as you want! (save keeping the footer credits in tact)

    You can even use the "Start Fresh" option to completely wipe out the theme's original CSS and write your own from scratch. That option effectively turns every theme into a framework (of sorts), I think of it like a blank canvas. Although, most people start out by simply adding rules to adjust the existing styles because it taks a lot of work to completely redesign a site with CSS. :)

    Is there a restriction on customization on the free vs the premium theme.

    Nope.

    I have the premium theme "Photography" installed. What are my options?

    Great theme choice! Your options for customizing are to use the custom fonts and colors tools, and to add CSS to modify how elements look that already exist on the page (or that you add in widgets).
