Errors and troubleshooting:

  1. If you see an error page, it means all of the plugins are already up to date

  3. Add again your purchase code.
  4. If you see a confirmation message and never see the Plugins link, it means your purchase code was linked to another domain. Please, contact the helpdesk to request a reset.


Forbidden errors or other errors:

Plugins are downloaded automatically from WordPress.com or from QantumThemes.xyz. In some rare cases you may see a message saying “Connection denied” or similar.

If this happens, the firewall on your server is not allowing your WordPress to download the new plugins. In this case, you have to ask your server provider to allow the connections to WordPress and to Qantumthemes.xyz and Qantumthemes.com. For a complete automatic check please use our Server Check plugin.
