Whitelabeling Lay theme source
Hi folks, I was wondering if it is possible to white label the actual Lay theme source, so it does not appear as "lay" anywhere in the source code?
The reason for this is because we want to use it for some client sites, and we don't want them snooping around and seeing the tools we use.
Ideally what I would like to do is change the Lay theme name, and also any mention of Lay in the backend of Wordpress.
It would be amazing if there was a way to do this and would ad so much value to the theme.
:D but then you're taking credit for my work no?
so many divs and so many files and css have "lay" prefixes :/
i cant really do this i think
@arminunruh No sorry my intention might not be clear. This approach would apply to the paid licensed option of Lay Theme. Like an agency white label option. In the same way that in other industries you purchase a license to a service or product which allows you to rebrand it and onsell it.
You would earn your licence payments and it could potentially attract more agencies to purchase it because it gives them something to offer clients as more of a proprietary service, than an off the shelf product like all the cheap WP themes out there.
It's something you might want to give consideration. Essentially some way to do a global find/replace of the word "lay" in the theme, and change it to something else. Meanwhile in the backend, it still interfaces with your systems/licensing/updates etc, so it still ultimately remains controlled by you.
Sorry, but this still sounds like taking credit for someone else's work and trying to resell it as your own to your clients.
@monoflop There is no ill harm intended. The SaaS industry has done this for decades. Campaign Monitor did this with their platform years ago, which we use. Much of the entire product industry works this way in fact, from car parts and whitewoods to fashion. A business produces their own products as well as unbranded products that get distributed globally and rebranded. Everyone can benefit from it. Great economies of scale.
Anyway, I'm just sharing the exact conversation I've had with countless fellow agency owners, all looking for this exact type of solution.
