    Hey Modmyi, I have been able to put a piracy prevention on my widgets. When the theme/widgets are installed from a pirate repo, the widget will become unusable. As of now I have only been able to test it on one package. That is TouchSpin. I dont recommend it but, if you go to a pirate repo and Install TouchSpin Transformer blue. You will see what im talking about. Otherwise watch the video.

    this is brilliant, can you do this on a main theme? prevent pirating the whole theme.

    Only the Html's are useless. As far as UI it is untouched.

    There is a way to send to safe mode, but I am not interested in doing so.

    They accepted and uploaded TouchSpin Transformers Blue. This one renders the whole LS useless.

    I thought about trying to do the ui as well, but I thought about it like this.

    Most of my themes on these repos get thousands of downloads. A lot of people try before they buy. Which I can understand. Ruining the whole theme I believe is not the answer.

    Because me and you both know if they like what they see, and they can't have it all they will purchase it. If you disable the theme then you lose thousands of people looking at your work.

    Which if your me id love to give my themes to thousands and thousands of more people. Not take a step back and loose thousands of people viewing my work. Even If it is stolen. I take it as my job to make them want to purchase it.

    I think this is the best way to defend against it ATM. Without losing potential customers.

    I can see this being helpful with some themes (like nav themes or themes that require a widget for the full experience).

    However, like everyone has pointed out, the UI is still usable. I get the try before you buy, I've been there, but I still don't think that piracy can be prevented. This puts a hurdle in front of piracy, but that is pretty much all it does. There's always a way around it. If you look hard enough, you can find anything you want online for free.

    Just being honest.

    Thanks for stating the obvious Abdul. You've always been great at that. As the blog says, this will not prevent it.

    As the post said above you. My thoughts on ui and why I wouldn't do it.

    Right Edward, I was stating the obvious. Because the title states "iThemeSecurity". I get why you don't want UI to be protected (and I personally would agree with you if I were a themer), but many other themers probably don't have the same perspective as you do on themes.

    I set out to do something and did exactly how I wanted. Just thought I'd post here to show and offer my services.

    What you see is what you get. No plan to prevent piracy. As it helps in my business. Believe it or not. But I do want a paid package to be broken when downloaded from a pirate repo. Which I have done. The person downloading it for free does not get what the person that paid for it does. Sounds fair. More fair than what is currently going on.

    I agree with you here June. and thats a solid way of looking at it. cause honestly in the end, you just want people using your work. and showing their friends, and their friends. and out of 3-5 people. someone will take the plunge and purchase. and after that, they might say, "hey, what else has this guy created?" and start buying all your work. you have been at this a loooong time. your experience and knowledge is appreciated by all.

    i know this anti piracy stuff will not stop piracy but heck why make it easy for them lol. at least this way they might actually have to make an effort to post pirated works.

    and as for the try before you buy. i can understand it to a point.... but with that said its not like themes cost 20 bucks so someone would be out a chunk of change if they didnt like it either...

    Agree with ya there. Make them work for it for sure. I don't know how y'all do it Spend all that time making themes and costing maybe max I seem 4 bucks.
