ADW F.A.Q.

Customer Questions

We believe in the open source community and believe that WordPress should be available to all. Unfortunately premium plugin and theme authors refuse to decouple support from the code, they won’t set regional price differences and they rarely offer discounts to students, low waged or the young. We are providing a third way by redistributing the code without any unneeded extras.

All WordPress items such as plugins and themes are licensed under the General Public Licence (GPL). This means that once we have purchased the item we are free to redistribute it if we choose to do so.

Your membership to our site goes towards maintaining and buying the subscriptions to 3rd party theme and plugin authors. This form of crowd funding helps keep prices low and we can then pass this benefit on to you. Our ‘about us’ explains things in more detail.

No. If you require technical support regarding a plugin or theme then you will need to either purchase the product directly from the author (a link is provided) or you will need to hire a freelancer to take a look for you. Alternatively you could ask around some of the helpful WordPress community forums.

Not offering support is the way in which we are able to offer the products at the discounted price.

Yes, 100%. We have active subscriptions to all the authors of the products featured on our website. We download from them and redistribute to you. The downloads are not altered in any way.

Yes. As soon as we are notified about an update, we go and download it from the author and update it on our site. We send regular emails advising when products have been updated so please be sure to provide an active email address when you sign up.

We will be introducing a more automated solution to those who want it shortly. Watch this space!

If it’s GPL then we can try! Drop us a line using our contact form and let us know what item(s) you would like adding to our directory. We try and bring new items into the site each month based on how many users are requesting the item. Look forward to hearing from you.

Ignore it. Developers include these so that the plugin or theme can update automatically or so that you can register for support. The item itself will work perfectly fine without anything being entered in the box. We would recommend updating your theme/plugins manually when updates become available on our site.

As many as you like. The plugins and themes are GPL licenced so you can use them as often as you like on as many sites as you like. Got a friend who’s building a site? Go share them with your friend. Seriously, there are no catches.

We currently offer monthly and annual subscriptions. The longer you subscribe the bigger the discount we can offer. You can currently save 20% by choosing an annual subscription over a monthly plan. You can see more detail on our pricing page

No. If you wanted to sign up and download our entire directory of 1100 themes and plugins then feel free to do so. Not sure why you would want to but you can!

Sure. Under the GPL licence you’re free to keep them if you want. The only thing to be aware of is that if you want access to any future updates then you’ll need to have an active subscription with us.

No. Sorry we’re going to have to be a little hard on this one. The nature of digital media means that once you have downloaded a plugin or theme there’s really no way to ‘return’ it. If you think you might have some doubts then why not just subscribe for a month before committing to a longer subscription?

Because all items are GPL licenced it’s extremely unlikely there is one. Also, we only use the names of products nominatively as a way of identifying one item from another and clearly emphasise on our website that no items on this site are endorsed or sponsored by any trade mark holder. Nonetheless, please use our contact form to highlight any concerns and we’ll be happy to work with you.

Of course. You’re not locked into anything. You can cancel your subscription by logging into the members area and visiting the subscriptions link. If you have any problems then let us know and we’ll be happy to cancel it for you. No questions asked.
