What are the Themler trial limitations?

We offer you the opportunity to evaluate Themler's capabilities in trial mode, which is not limited in time or functionality. In trial mode, you can run a theme on Themler Cloud, modify it using full Themler functionality, and work in the CMS admin panel to see how the content is reflected in the theme. The modified theme can be previewed using the Live Preview option, however it cannot be downloaded or saved to Themler Cloud.
Another option provided by the Themler trial is the ability to download and install the default Themler theme in your CMS to evaluate it. In this case, the modified theme can also be previewed, but the theme cannot be saved & published and it cannot be saved to Themler Cloud.

What will happen to my Themler themes after my subscription expires?

After your subscription to Themler expires, you will still be able to use already created and downloaded themes and use Themler without updates.

Can I sell my own themes on theme marketplaces, e.g. ThemeForest.

You're not allowed to resell themes, e.g. on theme marketplaces like ThemeForest in the following cases:

  1. If the theme contains images from BillionPhotos:

  2. If this is one of the theme available on BillionThemes with or without modifications.

But you're allows to sell such themes to individual customers. Only reselling in not allowed.
For more details please refer to BillionPhotos FAQ and BillionThemes FAQ.

You're allowed to resell themes, e.g. on theme marketplaces like ThemeForest in the following cases:

  1. the theme was created by you from scratch
  2. it does not contain images from BillionPhotos

What is the _preview theme and what is it needed for?

Themler themes actually are comprised of two themes: the basic theme and the _preview theme.
The _preview theme is used by Themler. You see this theme in Themler Preview Area and on Live Preview. This theme is needed in order to edit a theme in Themler and preview changes (with Live Preview option) without affecting the basic theme, which is used for the website front-end.
Depending on the export type, the _preview theme contains a few important files and directories required for proper Themler operation.

Note: Do not edit or remove the _preview theme manually. This may cause various problems.
Do it only if you know what you're doing.

What is the difference between "Save" and "Publish" options (for local/self-hosted CMSs)?

Both of these options save changes to the theme.
But there are some differences:

"Save" - this option saves changes to the theme files and updates non-minified theme stylesheet file (style.css/global.css).

"Publish" - this option saves changes to the theme files, generates minified theme stylesheet file (style.min.css/global.min.css) and updates the theme thumbnail.
This option is equivalent to "Apply Theme to CMS" on Cloud.

The Saving process is faster than Publishing.

After your subscription to Themler expires, you will still be able to use already created and downloaded themes and use Themler **without** updates. <!-- ### What is Themler Cloud and what it can be used for? Themler provides the ability to work in, and store themes on, Themler Cloud. Actually, while working in Themler Cloud, a fully functional CMS is running that allows you to design a Themler theme on it as well as download the theme. Themes, saved on Themler Cloud can then be accessed from your **Profile** >> **Themes** section. A theme saved on Themler Cloud can be downloaded to install in your CMS at any time. Please note that in order to be live on your hosting server, the theme should be downloaded and installed on it - the content from your CMS (and not from Themler Cloud) will be used. Mainly, Themler Cloud should be used for sharing and selling your themes on the BillionThemes Marketplace, as well as for easily evaluating Themler in trial mode. --> ### Can I sell my own themes on theme marketplaces, e.g. ThemeForest.
