    1. Though the official checksum command doesn’t support the theme checking yet, but I assume you want to check premium themes. In that case, it’s not possible. Both for themes and plugins, you can verify only those are hosted in WordPress.org.

  1. I never thought that a nulled theme could do such a thing, but what about those free ones. Does this mean that u only should download at wordpress.org/theme?

    1. Normally the free ones don’t do such a thing. Whenever you’re searching for some premium plugins/themes, most likely you would end up in a pirated/nulled site. These are the ones are mostly corrupted.

  2. Thank you Tareq.
    I just downloaded the “WP User Frontend – Membership, Profile, Registration & Post Submission Plugin for WordPress” how can I add more payment options aside “Stripe and PayPal? I intend to use Paystack.
    Thank you.

  3. This codes looks so scary. But who wrote this code look like he is not very familiar with OOP or functional programming. Didn’t reuse any variable or anything at all. Just rewrite everything.

  4. Dear Brother, I and many receive FB adv that WP theams and plug-in for sale and save $20000. Many like me and myself purchased.
