    Hi there,

    Can you sell websites that you've used free templates to produce?
    If it helps the templates says:
    "This template has been licensed with a GPL General Public License, meaning you can freely use this theme for both personal and business use with no limitations."

    Thanks for helping out :D

    You can but free templates are generally very poor quality.

    Why not use templates from ThemeForest or something.

    Invest a little bit more but the website will return a little more when you sell.

    Much higher quality.

    Hi again,
    I was looking and basically what i want to do is make an online portfolio design business - people pay me around 30? and i convert their work into an online portfolio;

    To do this do you think i would need to purchase a new site licence for every site i sell? - the regular site license gives access to "Regular Licence
    a website (commercial, personal, client), or intranet site project "

    I can't really afford the extended licenses, especially as i want to have an array of choice for users,

    Anyway thanks for helping, it means a lot! :bigok:
