      May I know the details about these issues that you encountered in our template?

      To Pligg devs, I wasn’t notified by this comment so maybe there’s a problem with the system.

    You won’t have access to the template file immediately. When you purchase this template file you will be asked to go to their support site and register. Then submit a ticket to the support page. Then you will need to wait for an undisclosed amount of time before they send you the download link. I still haven’t received my download link yet.

    • OxyThemes

      – January 2, 2015:

      We do disclosed the amount of time before you can download. As stated in our FAQ page, it’s up to 24 hours, business days.

      And you will not received a download link, instead you’ll be given the location of the page where you can download the template.

      OT: It seems we don’t get notified anymore when someone purchased and when someone make reviews/comments, hence the delayed response in here.
