I'm a little confused here, maybe someone can clear this up for me. Maybe it will be easiest to start with a hypothetical.

Lets say in 2 years I decide that ithemes and builder is not right for me. I dunno, maybe I find a more useful tool for building wordpress websites. What happens with the websites I created using builder, it's style manager, and plugins? Will I still be able to modify the sites I created as I would any other wordpress site, without the use of builder, etc? What remains editable? Is builder required to make future edits to those sites?

I have no plans of leaving ithemes any time soon, but this does have me a bit worried, thinking I'm almost forced into a lifetime subcription whether I like it or not. Please tell me this isn't the case. I currently don't mind paying the costs, but if for whatever reason builder becomes obsolete, having to pay $200 a year for the sole purpose of keeping one or two existing builder created sites updated would be a big letdown and financial loss.

This brings up another concern...what if for whatever reason iThemes goes out of business in a few years. What aspects of builder created websites would still be editable?

Thanks for any response

You can continue to use our products even after your subscription expires.

Active subscription is needed to download the up-to-date versions of files (themes/plugins etc.) and get support.
