FAQ about Premium Themes

What is a premium WordPress theme?

A premium WordPress theme is any theme for the WordPress online blogging engine that comes at a price. In other words, if you have to pay for the WordPress theme, it is known as a premium theme. If you do not have to pay for it, it is known as a free theme.

Why should I purchase a premium WordPress theme?

This is a question that requires its own discussion absent the general discussion about premium WordPress themes. That having been said however, premium WordPress themes are worth purchasing for a number of reasons which briefly include their comprehensive nature, their support and the fact that you can often end up purchasing a theme without having to link back to the theme’s creator and therefore saving some of your link juice when it comes to the Google Page Rank information that your website has.

Support is another major advantage of buying a premium WordPress theme. When you buy a premium theme from GabfireThemes, it comes backed with extensive support offered by our WordPress experts. You can contact us at any time when you have any questions regarding the premium themes or you can visit the Support forum in our website.

Another plus point of premium themes is Theme Updates. WordPress releases new updates frequently, so do GabfireThemes! We update our premium themes to incorporate the new WordPress add-ons along with our own extra tools and features to make your website or blog perform the best for you.

Is having a premium WordPress theme really necessary?

In the long run, the answer to this question is a resounding yes. While you can certainly get started with a WordPress theme that is free. If you want your blog to become recognized as a source of information on the internet that is worth visiting, you are going to need to brand it with a high quality WordPress theme. In other words, you will need a premium or custom WordPress theme.

    Hello Gab! Your themes are great looking and seem to be very functional as well. However, it lacks a sign up feature for people to get registered, so they might go and generate answers to published topics under their own names/nicknames.

    Could you please elaborate if you support this feature or the reason why you don't have that capability on your themes backend.

    Your answer will be greatly appreciate. My purchase order will derive from your answer here.

    Best of luck,

    Ralph

      Ralph, I am not sure what feature you asked?

      Do you want a user to be registered in order to leave a comment, or to encourage people to Sing in / Register for site and write entries for?

      In any case, it is an easy hack to place a Register link on any where over the themes. We surely provide support on support forums

    Mehmet,

    I just want to add to Ralph's question.

    If I want to make a member page where they register and login from the homepage is that possible?

    I want to make a memberpage where they can download the .pdf version of my newsletter.

    Thank a lot

    How do you know the difference between premium themes and themes that aren't but someone is just calling them premium and selling them as such?

    • Mehmet Permalink Reply

      You just don't know the difference, but the ones being named as premium and sold always have a dedicated support forums, much more advanced then the free ones, and they are updated with the latest releases of WordPress

    Support is the main reason for buying premium theme. I've been waiting for hours to get activated in the forums for a simple answer. The themes available for free have open forums to discuss the issues, we paid and been waiting for the mercy of some administrator. What kind of BS is that. You can just leave the comment in moderation but I'll blog about it and tweet about do what ever needs to be done to stop this BS.

    • Mehmet Permalink Reply

      I totally agree with you Tom that a client would purchase a premium theme just because of support.

      Having said in on our terms & conditions page, we monitor forum registrations twice (at least) per day and make sure that all our clients gets an approval. We are not the only company who has a moderation wall before the forum approval.

      Sorry for inconvenience

      We have only tested autoblogged.com with our themes and it seemed to be working fine. But please note that we do not provide support for 3rd party plugins.

    how do your themes rate in comparison to other premium themes, such as thesis and woo?

    ive always used the the default or free themes but from what ive read here, and on other sites, its recommended to use paid themes.

    what studies show that using a paid theme will benefit me? have you done any cross testing?
    thanks.

    • Mehmet Ozek Permalink Reply

      Hi Courtney, we don’t do any kind of comparison between ourself and other theme companies. Each company has their own unique features implemented into their themes. You can google for review though.

      As for benefits; by purchasing a premium theme you actually will purchase theme support and ask our guidance for any kind of technical problem you might encounter.
