web designer says he cannot edit my upgraded, needs .org?

  1. Hi,
    A web designer is going to create my wordpress website, from I have a premium theme and upgraded to the $99 yearly.

    He says he cannot edit the theme sufficiently, as he says is what is needed. Is this correct? Did I waste my money by paying for the theme? I thought I paid for the theme and the upgrade ($99) which would allow 100% editing.

    Can you tell me if he is correct, or can he use my soundcheck premium theme, and edit and change it to suit my needs?

    Thank you

    If you want to fundamentally change the way the theme works, you will need or a different theme. If you just want to change how it looks, hide columns and metadata, etc, then you should be fine.

  5. Thank you Raincoaster! I just didn't realise these things.......:)
