en WordPress.com Forums › Themes Can I Use "Retired" Themes? Author Posts March 5, 2013 at 4:57 pm #1172455 johnlimingMember I have looked at and fallen in love with a couple of really great-looking themes and have even installed and used a couple of them for short periods of time. Then I discovered that some of them have been designated as “Retired.” I do not know what “Retired” means. One of the themes I like is called “Kubrick” and it is marked as “Retired” but it is also marked as the theme “emertius” for WordPress.Com. My question is, “Can I use some of these “Retired” themes? They seem to still load up and open up when I install them so there doesn’t seem to be any mechanical problems with them. I am just confused about what “Retired” means and wondering if I can go ahead and use “Sapphire” or “Kubrick” or “Contempt” all three of which are hum dingers as far as I am concerned. Any help I can get with this will be sincerely appreciated. Thanks a lot. The blog I need help with is americanliberaltimes.com.
