Bundling Gravity Forms Into a Commercial Premium Theme

  1. Cmsgods

    I could have sworn that I had a link bookmarked to a page detailing how you can bundle Gravity Forms in a theme that you may have for sale. I'm planning on developing a theme that will have Gravity Forms embedded but not sure of the best way to go about it.

    Any pointers as to how to do this? I've seen it done before, but not sure of the best solution.

  2. From Carl Hancock:

    No, this is not something that is permitted with our licenses. You should not bundle or include Gravity Forms with your theme and your license cannot be distributed. This isn't just something we do not permit, but it's something that isn't a best practice when it comes to themes. Themes should not bundle plugins and should focus on the design of a site and leave plugins to the user to opt to install and/or purchase. What you could do if you wish is sign up for our affiliate program on our site and then promote Gravity Forms from your theme for users to purchase.

    StudioPress does something like this with their Genesis theme, where there is a message on their form demos

    * This contact form was developed with a third party plugin called Gravity Forms and is not included in the Genesis Framework. It is for display only here on the demo site – though we highly recommend using it.

    Where Gravity Forms is their affiliate link.

    Thank you for clearing that up. I guess I was mistaken thinking that I saw a theme or two with Gravity Forms bundled.
