    Jon Brown mentioned woo themes and needing to have a subscription to get the themes. Later on there is discussion with the woo themes developer license. I buy the theme that I want for the one time price of $70 with lifetime updates. This is available without subscriptions. It’s an either or (one time payment vs a subscription to ALL themes). i would rather pay once and you can get lifetime updates from that one time purchase. I think there is a fundamental misunderstanding on this. Your support and updates work for the onetime payment for lifetime for the theme you purchase..

    Is there a way to subscribe to a RSS? I don’t see anywhere, but I could be missing it.
