The idea behind WordPress Guru is to help website owners or small developers who have enough knowledge and experience of WordPress that they do not need technical support that developers provide or who are running low on budget & need to buy the plugins for their own and clients projects. Sometimes the plugins needed for a client’s website can run into hundreds of dollars which is not even the budget in some developing countries. So this site aims to help knowledgeable people who don’t need support or automatic updates to save money.
Most people are familiar with the term ‘open source‘. It means a piece of software, or code, that is free to use. You’re free to use, copy, study, change, improve or redistribute the software as you like.
WordPress is open source software and is founded upon the GPL (General Public Licence) that you can read more about over at the WordPress website > here
The main point to note is that any software that is built upon WordPress must carry forward the original GPL licence.
We feel strongly that plugins and themes are derivative work and thus inherit the GPL license.
