Announcement: Theme Supermint and php7
Just wanted to let everybody know that I have forked theme supermint on Github and have begun adding some changes to make it compatible with php7.
I want to use the theme on a website that I am currently building. So it would be nice to have some more users that can help me identify the stumbling blocks.
At the moment the addon installs fine on php7.2 and all the widgets that I have tested seem to be working fine.
Of course I do not know about the lincese status of the theme. Still I think it would be shame to let this fine piece of software go down just because of a few errors that inevitably come with the transition to the current php version.
If you want to give it a try please make sure to install the zip fromhttps://github.com/Soundbytes/theme_supermint... and not the one from the market place.
Please file any issues on github:https://github.com/Soundbytes/theme_supermint/issues...
Looking forward to your bug reports!
You can modify for your own use, but not distribute the modified theme for others to use.
Within the license, others can download from the marketplace and you can show them what modifications are needed.
To do anything more, you need the permission of the developer.
Here's the original repo:https://github.com/myconcretelab/theme_supermint...
Most who post packages on GitHub do so with a MIT or GPL license. Not a c5 marketplace license.
I suspect you are correct and not changing the license was an oversight. But unless someone asks the original dev, no-one can prove you are correct.
Of course I have tried to contact Sebastien through several channels and I am still hoping to get in touch. His former domain myconcretelab.com is offline and belongs to a domain grabbing company now. His last activity on github is from Jul, 9, 2018.
I only hope he is fine whatever he does now. If anybody still is in contact with him I'd be happy to know. Thanks!
