Say I have a question.. I purchased winning agent from studiopress as a third party theme.
I have a pro plus account.. I am setting it up for a re-max agent..
Anyway.. I was at IDX broker working on a wrapper and found this place..
This person takes studiopress and this winning agent theme for example and does a bit
with CSS and will add?? or has added IDX broker? (? in my experience IDX broker is only installed after the agent signs up no preinstall)
So question is is this ok? can anyone do this?.. I mean on the web I could do well selling versions of this theme and all I could even sell for less than this realty candy person..
I know this is GPL.. but I do not understand the license or licenses well enough to just jump in and resell the theme with some css and maybe function customizations..
Thats why I ask here in the forum..If this is not the place to ask point me in the right direction.

Thank you for asking this question — its OK to ask here in the forum, you’re right – maybe someone else will have the same questions.
You can absolutely sell your services with the theme, its totally up to you. You can customize the theme a little or a lot, totally up to you. What the license does is grant you 1 on 1 support with us for standard theme questions — by that I mean questions about the basics of how the theme works, not something you customized that might not be working. So, for example, if you setup a Winning Agent Pro site for a client, the client would need to contact you for support and not us. If you needed help, then you could contact us since you purchased the theme. Does that make sense? In regards to the Genesis Framework, we always recommend purchasing that directly from StudioPress so the client has an account with them for full access to their support, code snippets, etc. You can always use an affiliate for your clients for this purchase.
In regards to IDX, it is up to you if you want to sell IDX services are part of what you offer, it has no connection with the Winning Agent Pro theme. That said, since Winning Agent is an IDX Broker partner, we offer a killer deal. Have your clients purchase IDX Broker through us and their setup fee is waived and we will style their search bar for free (normally a $99 cost).

wow well realty candy is basically re-selling the theme and so if thats ok..
it seems so liberal license wise.. anyway I fully understand the chain of support it was that I did not understand a person could do a simple custom job and price your theme at in the case of realty candy 249$..? I would caution you on this as a person might try to go to a place like theme forest and re-sell the theme..with a few simple customizations say..
For the record I have moved on and will not be doing any custom work on winning agent..
I took a job at a financial company so I won’t be moonlighting any more on IDX sites.
Thanks for your help and winning agent is a very well done theme..I find working on it a breeze and have not had any issues to ask support questions ..that means your code is clean and easy to understand.. I found the CSS to be super great and I was able to add my own IDX css to the style sheet and it took it very well.. I also was able to use hooks and filters and I added a large amount of custom functions and the theme just rocked!
