    The version of the Twenty Eleven theme we have at has been coded to run on our multi-user software. If you need information on the version of the theme please see here >


    Twenty Eleven, as far as I know is GPL, not create commons. WordPress itself is GPL, which means themes that are used on wordpress have to be GPL although certain types of code used in them can have more restrictive licensing.



    Twenty Eleven, like WordPress and all of the themes available on , is released under the GPL license, meaning you are free to modify it as you wish. For more information on the license, you can have a look at License page:

    Please note: If you are modifying a blog, you may edit the header and background. If you have the Custom Design upgrade, you can edit the CSS and fonts. If you would like to edit the actual template files, then you would need a self-hosted blog instead.


    Also note that the one thing that cannot be removed or hidden from the themes here at wordpress.COM are the footer credits, typically at the very bottom of the theme. Those have to stay in place.



    Yes, thesacredpath is correct about the fact that footer credits must stay intact on and cannot be hidden with CSS.
