WordPress is a free content management system (CMS). Simply put, WordPress makes creating and maintaining websites super easy through an online interface.
Once WordPress is installed on your domain and web hosting, all you need is a computer and internet connection to edit your website. If you know how to use Microsoft Word, then you can operate WordPress.
What Is a Theme?
A WordPress theme is simply a web template that runs in the WordPress content management system to add basic design styling or features to your website.
What Is a Premium WordPress Theme?
A premium WordPress theme is a high-quality, feature-rich, search engine optimized WordPress web template built for customers who want a polished design.

A license is only entitled for one domain only and automatic update is only possible to one installation. In other words, you can’t use the theme on multiple domain. As for sub installations, as long as they are just the same site then regular license is okay.
Do Your Themes Work on WordPress.Com?
The themes you will get from Sorsawo Digital only work on self-hosted WordPress installations, the content management system which you can download from WordPress.org. If you have a WordPress.com hosted website, the themes downloaded from our website will not work on your site.
Are Your Themes Compatible with Plugins and Widgets?
We style and code our themes to be compatible with most standard WordPress plugins and widgets. All of the plugins we create and offer through are compatible with all of our themes.
But due to the sheer numbers of plugins and widgets available by other providers, we cannot code for them all. Thus, some plugins and widgets may cause the theme to “break” in certain browsers. We make every attempt to prepare our themes for them, but cannot guarantee it will work in every situation.
Do Your Themes Work with the Latest Version WordPress?
Yes, it is our duty to always keep the themes up-to-date and working with the latest version of WordPress. Currently, our themes are developed and fine-tuned for WordPress 4.0 or higher, any version prior to that may have problems with some theme functionality.
Do Your Themes Work with Mobile Devices?
All of our WordPress themes display beautifully on mobile devices.
Can I translate a Theme?
All of our WordPress themes are localized using GNU’s gettext functionality. This means that each of our themes includes one file (.po) which contains all of the English terms we have used, which thus allows our users to only edit one file in able to translate our themes to any language in the world.
What Browsers & Operating Systems Are Supported?
We test all our WordPress themes on Internet Explorer 9+, the latest versions of Firefox, Safari and Chrome. Regarding operating systems, our themes are independent of the operating system you use and will work as long as WordPress is installed correctly.
We do not support Internet Explorer 6 or 7 and purely ensure the content of the website looks good in Internet Explorer 8. If you use Internet Explorer 6, 7, or 8 please consider upgrading to the latest Internet Explorer to have the best experience with our WordPress themes. Or switch to a different browser, the web will thank you!
