Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Before you contact me

I ask you to kindly spend a moment and read this list of frequently asked questions. A lot of the questions I get are the same, so in order to save time for both of us I've compiled this FAQ of things people often email me to ask about. You will find the link to the contact form at the bottom of this page.

Suggestions for questions to be added are most welcome and can be sent by email. Please see my contact page.

1. Can I use the design of one of your themes/styles as the design for my website?

Yes, you may providing the page footers carry a clearly visible notice saying: "Design based on [template name] phpBB theme by Jakob Persson, copyright 2003-2007 Jakob Persson", the notice must be linked to http://www.jakob-persson.com. You may use the following code in the footer:

<a href="http://www.jakob-persson.com"> Design based on [template name] phpBB theme by Jakob Persson, Copyright  2003-2007 Jakob Persson </a>

 

2. May I modify one of your themes/templates for use at my forums?

Same answer as above, same conditions. The page footers must carry a clearly visible notice saying: "Design based on [template name] phpBB theme by Jakob Persson, copyright 2003-2007 Jakob Persson", the notice must be linked to http://www.jakob-persson.com. You may use the following code in the footer:

<a href="http://www.jakob-persson.com"> Design based on [template name] phpBB theme by Jakob Persson, Copyright  2003-2007 Jakob Persson </a>
Note that you may not distribute templates that are based on or are derivations of mine without obtaining permission first!

 

3. May I have the graphics source files?

Source files are generally NOT made available but in the end, it depends on who's asking and the reason for their inquiry. It usually involves paying for access to these files so don't ask unless you're serious.

4. How do I make translated versions of your themes? 

If you wish to make translated buttons, I'd be delighted. You don't need source files for this, you can find graphics for buttons in the download area (see link at the top). Let me stress that files are available in Macromedia/Adobe Fireworks PNG format and all button sets will be released in that format primarily. My reasons? Hoping more people will discover how good Fireworks is and that it actually is the leading software for web graphics being far superior to Photoshop when it comes to web design work.

5. Will any of your templates be released for phpBB3?

Yes, I plan on porting all of my templates to phpBB3. Release is scheduled for some time this fall when I believe the stable version of phpBB3 will be available. For more information, please see this blog post.
