This is our support policy and post-sale support details. This policy is part of the general Terms and Conditions.
Issues with the Configuration of our Extension
Provide us detailed information about the issue and we will help you understand how the system works. We cannot provide efficient support if your request does not include a detailed description. Poorly explained situations will cause a ping-pong of messages, the resolution time will be longer and you will only get generic answers. Help us helping you!
Setting up your website and the Extension
We don't build websites but rather Joomla! extensions. This obviously involves a little of familiarity with the CMS on your end. We are a software development company that focuses on specific types of business and you should hire a developer if you need help configuring your Joomla website.
Issues with the Joomla! CMS or third party extensions
Web applications evolve very rapidly and so does the Joomla! CMS and any extension. Updates for the CMS are released to keep up with the security standards and the extensions are updated to provide new functions, improvements, stability and compatibility with the new standards. Keeping the software up-to-date is fundamental and we don't guarantee to be able to help you solve problems caused by outdated software. Additionally, third party plugins may break our extensions, either because they are outdated or not well-developed. We will do our best to help you locate these conflicts but it is not our fault if problems are caused by third parties. You should contact their developers in this case.
Templates issues and conflicts
Our software is provided "as is". There is a demo section for each extension and our team is available to clarify any doubt prior to the purchase. Support requests received for customizing the source code are very rarely answered positively. If you need to know how the software executes certain tasks then we will be more than happy to inform you. We will not give you the exact lines of code or the code snippet to modify though.
We understand that you or your client may prefer a darker blue background or a wider container for the images. However, all this graphical layout modifications are considered as customization of the extension. We mainly work with developers, web-agencies and designers that are supposed to know how to tweak certain layouts by using the browser inspector tool. Our designers will provide helpful guidelines in order to help you solve the problem but we will not do the customizations for you, not even for an additional fee.
Suggestions and feature requests
We love to collect suggestions from our clients and to hear your new ideas. However, we build software for the masses and although your ideas may be cool and brilliant, we will have to evaluate multiple circumstances in order to not create conflicts between existing functions. Feature requests are always wrote down on our change-log, they are considered for future releases and they are prioritized depending on the number of similar requests received. Your suggestions and requirements may also not be included in the future updates though, maybe, maybe not.
Bugs must be crashed. Please do report the errors you have encountered in our software but try to be the most precise as possible by reporting detailed tracking information with examples, links and screen shots. Our programmers will replicate the situation on our servers and we will release either a patch or an update as soon as possible.
Talk to someone/real-time support
Support is offered via email or via the forums. Our reponse timing is pretty fast but not immediate. We prefer to not offer support over the phone, Skype or any other chat/support software. This is to avoid any language incomprehension and the forums are beneficiary for both customers and ourselves as information and resolutions are shared across our website and remain available for other customers (if necessary). There can be some rare cases where a phone conversation can solve problems more quickly but we rarely offer this way of communication.
