What do I need to use an Elmastudio theme?
For all WordPress themes that you purchase here on our Elmastudio website, you will need your own domain and webspace running the latest self-hosted WordPress version. You can download the free WordPress version for self-hosted websites at WordPress.org.
Do I need any knowledge of WordPress to use your themes?
If you already have your WordPress installation up and running, you won’t need any further knowledge beforehand. We also prepared detailed text documentations as well as helpful blog posts and videos to get you started. And in case any questions come up, you can always ask them in our theme support forum.
Will plugin XY be compatible with your themes?
We list all plugins that are specially prepared to work with a theme in the theme documentation. That, of course, doesn’t mean that all other plugins in the WordPress.org plugin directory won’t be compatible with our themes. Most plugins will work great with our themes. But since there are thousands of plugins in the directory, we just can’t promise you that every plugin will work with our themes. So in case you need a specific WordPress plugin to work with our themes, please ask us before your purchase, if this specific plugin will be compatible.
On how many domains and under which conditions can I use the themes?
You can use your theme on private and commercial websites on as many domains as you like. You can also use a theme for your client projects. It is not allowed to resell our WordPress themes.
Are all your themes responsive?
Yes, all our themes have a responsive layout. That means the theme design adapts automatically to different screen sizes, so your website looks as great on small mobile devices as on tablets, laptops and big desktop or TV screens.
Can I use a theme in my language?
Yes, of course, all our themes are already translated into English and German. Some themes have additional languages already available. If your theme is not translated into your language yet, you can add your translation using the Loco Translate WordPress plugin.
Can I create a multilingual website with your themes?
Yes, you can install the Multilingual plugin Polylang or WMPL to translate your website into multiple languages. Depending on where you want to show your language switcher, you might need to customize the theme a little bit. How to do this, will be described in the WPML and Polylang plugin documentation.
Can I use your themes for my online shop?
Is it allowed to customize a theme?
Yes, all Elmastudio themes are published under the GNU General Public License (just like WordPress itself). You can customize our theme with no restrictions just as you like. You can find more information about the GNU free software license at GNU.org.
Can I use your themes on WordPress.com?
Some of our Premium WordPress themes are available for WordPress.com users. You can see all Elmastudio themes also available on WordPress.com on our WordPress.com profile page. WordPress.com users need to purchase a theme directly from their WordPress.com dashboard unless they have a business plan. Then you can also upload all our self-hosted WordPress themes that you can purchase here on our Elmastudio website to your WordPress.com account.
Do you offer theme customizations or take on client projects?
No, unfortunately, we can’t offer individual theme customizations or take on any client projects.
2. Theme Bundle
What is the Theme Bundle?
The Theme Bundle gives you the option to purchase all our WordPress themes. So if you buy our Theme Bundle, you will receive all Elmastudio Premium themes plus all future themes and theme updates, that we release in one year starting from your date of purchase.
What advantages does the Theme Bundle has compared to a single theme?
The most significant advantage is that you get our entire theme collection including new themes, so you can quickly try out many different themes to see which you like best. This takes the pressure of you to choose the right theme at the beginning. If you have two or more websites, you can use the themes for different projects of yours. If you work with clients, you can also use the themes in the Theme Bundle to set up websites for your clients using the themes. And last but not least, we offer a 50% discount for any further year you want to renew your Theme Bundle. So you can save a lot later on using our Theme Bundle offer.
What happens, when my Theme Bundle download link expires?
You will receive an email from us about one or two weeks before your Theme Bundle download link expires. This email includes an exclusive 50% discount coupon to renew your Theme Bundle for a further year. This way you will keep having access to all new Theme releases and updates. Of course, you can continue to use all themes you purchased in the Theme Bundle, also after your Theme Bundle is expired. But you will lose the access to theme updates and new theme releases.
Can I upgrade my single theme purchase to the Theme Bundle?
Yes, of course. If you purchased one or more single themes within the last 30 days and you want to upgrade to the Theme Bundle, just write us a short email, and we get things sorted for you.
3. Pre Purchase
Which theme will be best suited for my website?
Of course, it is a little bit difficult for us to say, which theme you should choose for your website. First, you should have a look at each theme category to see, if the theme offers support for E-commerce, a portfolio, a Magazine front page and so on. It is also helpful to have a look at our theme showcase, to find inspirations and see how others are using our themes.
Which purchase options do you offer?
You can purchase our themes via Paypal and pay with Paypal credit, credit card or bank transfer. You can also pay directly via credit card. For credit card purchases we use the safe online credit card payment service Stripe. Alternatively, you can also purchase a theme via direct bank transfer. In this case please write us a short email via our contact form and we let you know the details.
Can I pay in another currency than Euro?
All prices are in Euro, but if you pay via Paypal or credit cart, the amount will automatically be converted to your currency in your Paypal or credit card statements. You can check the current conversion rate with a currency converter.
How will I receive my purchased theme/Theme Bundle?
After the successful purchase, you will receive an email from us including your Theme or Theme Bundle download link and a PDF invoice for your records. With your download link, you will have access to your themes or the Theme Bundle folder at any time during one year. No worries, in case you lose your download link, write us a short note via our contact form and we will send you a new download link.
Are theme updates included?

What support do you offer for your Premium themes?
If you have a question regarding a theme or problems with the theme installation or setup, please ask your question directly in our theme support forum (in English or German). Please understand that we can not answer questions regarding individual theme customizations (e.g., CSS customizations) or custom theme enhancements. To help you get started with our themes, we prepared detailed theme documentations as well as helpful blog posts and videos.
