Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding GPLDAY. We hope you find them useful and a good source of general information.
What is GPLDAY.COM?
It is a website providing membership access to thousands of WordPress plugins and themes released under GPL license.
We know there are many other similar sites already. However, we excel at cheaper prices and unlimited downloads. You will receive original products. All files are free from ads, viruses or malicious code.
Why products are at such low prices?
Sounds good to be true? Read this! All WordPress items such as plugins and themes are licensed under the General Public Licence (GPL). Since the GPL gives all users the four freedoms to use, share, modify and redistribute software as they please as long as they inherit the GPL to their derivates, GPLDAY makes use of the redistribution right. We believe in the open source community and believe that WordPress should be available to all. Unfortunately, premium plugin and theme authors refuse to decouple support from the code. We are providing a third way by redistributing the code without any unneeded extras. Your membership to our site goes towards maintaining and buying the subscriptions to third-party theme and plugin providers. This form of crowdfunding helps keep prices low and we can then pass this benefit on to you.
Do you provide license keys or activation codes?
We do not provide license keys and no automatic updates for the products you downloaded. We do provide free updates you can download from member area. We also share a workaround to update installed plugins and/or themes easily.
Do you provide supports?
No, we don’t. We are not developers of the offered products, so our technical support capabilities are limited. We do not change the functionality of products and do not fix developer bugs. If you need technical support regarding a plugin or a theme, please purchase the product directly from the author (a link is provided). Not offering support is the way to offer the products at the very low price through membership.
Are these products genuine?
Yes, all WordPress items at GPLDAY are 100% original and unmodified. All codes are identical as released by developers. What is missing in GPLDAY’s offers compared to the 3rd party developers offerings is the first level service and support that developers usually provide.
Do you provide updates to the products?
Yes. As soon as we are notified of an update, we go and download it from the author and update it on our site. You can also tip us about new updates if we are late.
B. MEMBERSHIP AND USAGE
How can I join to be a member of GPLDAY?
It is very easy. Just buy a membership, pay, and we send you your membership credential right away.
Do you provide refund?
Given the nature of digital content that can be downloaded instantly after a purchase has been made; there is no “trial” or “grace period” after purchasing a subscription or any product, which means all sales are final. Once you have downloaded an item, there is no way to “return” it.
Can I keep the items downloaded from GPLDAY when I no longer a member?
Of course. You can keep any WordPress items you download from GPLDAY forever, even if you no longer have a membership.
Can I download older versions of plugins or themes?
We only keep the latest version of each WordPress item available for download. If you urgently need an older version, please contact us and we will try our best to help you out.
How many sites can I use the plugin or theme on?
As many as you like. The plugins and themes are GPL licensed so you can use them as often as you like on as many sites as you like – no matter if it is your website, your friend’s website or a client’s website. Got a friend who’s building a site? Go share them with your friend. Seriously, there are no catches.
Are there any restrictions on the number of downloads?
No! You can download it anytime you wish as long as you are a member. You can also download as many items as you want as long as you have an active membership plan. While competitors have to impose restrictions on number of downloads, we don’t have such restriction.
Why We Don’t Offer a Lifetime License?
Our business model cannot be sustainable without the license renewal. Meaning that if we offer a lifetime license, it would mean that in 5 or 10 years we won’t be able to provide the same premium support, same frequent feature releases and the same standard of product.
Can I request new products?
The decision to buy a new item is made according to the number of requests we receive for that item(s). Items availability are subject to change without prior notice.
Can I customize WordPress themes or plugins downloaded from GPLDAY?
All WordPress items licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) can be customized and modified to your needs.
When installing the theme, an error occurs: The package could not be installed. The theme is missing style.css stylesheet. How to fix it?
A typical error that occurs when a user attempts to upload in WordPress a non-installation theme file, but a complete archive of the theme (with documentation, plugins, demo data, etc.). To avoid this error, you must unpack the archive with a premium theme, find the installation .zip file inside the archive and use it for installation in WordPress.
A plugin or theme asks for license keys or activation codes, what to do?
Some WordPress items downloaded from GPLDAY may ask for a registration code in your WordPress Dashboard. Developers include these so that the plugin or theme can update automatically or so that you can register for support or in some cases to import the premium templates The registration is not required and the WordPress item will work without registration exactly the same way as with registration. Simply ignore it by dismissing the notification. Consider hiding the activation reminders using a plugin like WP Nag Hide. This plugin is free and very popular in the WordPress community.
How to properly update an already installed product?
The most simple and correct way to update the product is to replace the files of the old version of the product with the new version files. All product settings are saved, as they are stored in the database of the website. The second way is to delete the old version of the product, then download and activate the new version. In this case, the product settings may not be preserved, as in many products when they are removed there is a function to clear settings from the website database. Here it is worth noting an important nuance: sometimes developers are releasing a fundamentally new product update (major update) with a change in the structure of files, the structure of storing settings in the database, etc. In this case, the product is accompanied by instructions from the developer to switch to a new version. Update to the current version correctly.
