    Hey Blackhatters,

    I'm here simply because I'm struggling, with me being flat-out broke and a total cheapskate, I thought I'd as for some assistance on this matter. How can I possibly rip a wordpress theme? Is it even possible? I'm starting to doubt whether it is or not.

    I can't post URLs, so if you want to help me out, PM me?

    ​
    Any assistance, advice etc would be kindly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Mikey

    You can easily take a copy of the graphics, html, css, js, etc but the PHP that powers the theme you can't just lift off the page.

    Check the download section. There's a lot of themes in there.

    You can't rip a wordpress theme because it uses php files but you can rip the html/css and make a static site with it. You could probably even find someone on fiverr to turn it into a wordpress theme for you for cheap.
