While it is not a requirement that you do so, it would be very much appreciated if you were to leave the ‘Code and Reload’ credit (and link) in the theme’s footer. Doing so gives credit where credit is due, which seems only fair. In addition, it might help direct a little additional business my way which will, in turn, allow me to continue work on this and other great WordPress themes, plugins, etc. Finally, it gives great karma!
