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.

Technical questions

After updating the main plugin, something is not working anymore

WP Customer Area is a complex plugin. When updating it, you must follow our update procedure in order to avoid any problems. Usually you have made the following mistakes:

  • You did not deactivate and then activate the plugin again. Which could lead to several messages displayed on your admin pages
  • You updated the main plugin but you did not update the add-ons. Which often leads at best to something not working properly, at worst, a PHP error message or a white screen

  • 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.
