Support In General

Here are some basic support rules and information. Make sure that you read this list carefully, so we can avoid problems with support and make it efficient and fast.

  1. Twitter direct messages and tweets can’t be used for support, and all support related question sent through Twitter will be ignored.
  2. Before asking for support, please check plugin/theme requirements and make sure that your system supports it.
  3. PHP 4 and PHP 5.0/5.1 are not supported by any of our plugins or themes.
  4. With each support request, you must enter plugin/theme version and WordPress version. PHP and MySQL version can be provided and can be useful for some issues.

Knowledge Base

Before asking questions in the support forum or using priority support, make sure to check knowledge base first.

  1. Each product has the own section in the knowledge base with FAQ and articles.
  2. Each product forum is connected to the knowledge base, and product knowledge base page is linked to the forum using a widget on every page.
  3. Knowledge base articles that deal with code examples are written for users that know how to use PHP and are familiar with WordPress development: actions and filters, conditional functions, loop…
  4. The knowledge base on Dev4Press can’t teach you PHP and WordPress basics, use official WordPress codex to get started with WordPress development to understand how WordPress works.
