Using template code

Post by subavlhpf »

What are the terms for using the template system code?

I would like to use it, under the GPL, in my blog, with a notice that it was created by you guys.

Thanks!

If you don't plan on distributing your blog code to anyone, just go ahead and use it. If you do plan on distributing it, then go ahead anyway, but there may be some restrictions/notices you may want to know about.

I don't know, then.

I believe your blog must be released under GPL too and you must give credit to phpBB.

In my opinion, the rules of the GPL are fairly straight-forward. You can use the code to do whatever you want. You can keep your modifications to yourself without restriction. If you distribute your modifications they must inherit the GPL license, meaning you must give everyone else the same rights that you enjoyed.

And finally, you may not remove the copyright from the template.php code.

I think that sums it up. :)
