hello all, i am a developer and designer but designing is not my main work. So is it good to use nulled theme that you and your community provided as giveaway as many time i saw in this forum. excluding safety what are the problems would i face after i hosted the website with using nulled theme.
There are different version of thoughts.
I would strictly say No to Nulled theme for production as there are high chances of code being manipulated.
When it comes to Nulled and GPL, both types of themes are bypassed from registration code verification. Thus, when you use them on your website, they will work fine as original without asking you to enter purchase code, whatsoever. Still, you may not be able to take benefit of lot of features. Take an example of Elementor Pro, which comes packed with readymade templates. You can download those templates from the vendor website only when you will pay and subscribe to the theme.
GPL themes are okay to use. Again there is a catch.
Nowadays, many of the mischievous people have started selling or offering Nulled theme/plugins as GPL. So, you need to be very careful before using GPL themes. The true GPL themes do not come for free. You will have to pay for them.
