What happened to my account on

As you have noticed, we have a brand new website dedicated to WP Customer Area and thus we have also moved the whole shop to this new website. Because there have been a lot of updates and improvements to the shop, we have not been able to migrate automatically the existing accounts and purchases.

In order for us to migrate your former account, please simply send us an email at, including the following details:

  • Date of purchase
  • Email address linked to the purchase
  • Receipt ID

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Where can I download the latest version for my extensions?

Once an update is available, a warning will be displayed in the WordPress administration as well as any other installed extension. However, if for some reason, the update did not work, you can always get the latest versions from your customer account. For more information, see the guide about updating WP Customer Area.


How do I automatically assign private content to all new users?

You must install the WP Customer Area add-on: "Additional owner types" and assign your content to each and every WordPress role. This way, all users of your site will be able to view this private content.

  • Relationship with customer is very important to any company. An area where clients can download their invoices or private documents is a convenient way to encourage them to regularly visit your website and build the trust they have in the company.

  • WP Customer Area and a few add-ons can be used to easily build a very useful platform for teachers, students and staff members to exchange documents and private messages.
