Now old versions can also be downloaded by non-membership users if they have purchased that individual product.
Now active membership users can download old versions of any plugin or theme by visiting the product page. The old versions of the product are provided in the product description. No credits will be deducted for downloading old versions.
Please note that we have started this service as of 18th April 2023, so the old version database will be build from today onwards. No previous versions are available before of 18th April 2023.
We have introduced a new block in each product description, which states the VirusTotal Report of that product. Once a new version of any product is updated, it will be submitted to VirusTotal and will be updated in our store. Therefore, if a product has recently been updated to a new version, it might take 2-10 minutes to get its VT Report displayed.
Some products may not have any report in their product description due to file size limit in VirusTotal API.
Firstly, we want to apologise for such a long downtime (approx. 6.5 hours).
It has been for first time in the history of GPL Times, that our users have faced such a long downtime.
Though there is nothing to worry about as there were no issues with the system or hosting. It was like our database server went offline without any notice and did not healed up to start again. As this happened during non-business hours, we were not aware of it. As soon our support staff came online, we did a database restart and everything came back online.
We are investigating the issue at our backend on why the database server did not started by itself.
Finally, GPL Times is now a multilingual store, which has support for Spanish, French, Italian, German and Russian languages. You can use the widget on the top right to change the languages.
Unfortunately, due to compromise in performance and database issue, we have to currently disable the multi-language versions of our store.
With effect from 26-August-2022, the credit reset for all the Membership Plans will take place at 12:00 AM (UTC / GMT) to make it simple for all the members who have different time zones.
We have shifted our support ticket system to a different platform to provide better user experience. Please give some time to the new support system to get used to it. It is as efficient (or even better) as the previous system.
As a scheduled maintenance, all the closed tickets before Jan 2021 has been removed due to performance and security reasons. This has released over 27000+ tickets from our database.
In order to benefit our customers, we have improved our Membership Plan pricing structure. In addition, we have increased the credit limit for all the Membership Plan customers (except for Developer Plan). Hope these new changes will bring smile in many of our existing and upcoming users.
The changes will be applicable with effect from 23rd November 2021.
We have introduced a new “Download History” page which can be found under “My Account” Menu. This page will list your downloads in last 24 hours or the downloads you have made in current credit cycle. Once the daily credit counter is reset, the download list in this page will also reset. You can check your daily credit details under My Account > Plans.
The page is accessible only via logged in users who have Membership Plan with us. The other users may get “404 not found” error. Therefore please make sure to login before visiting this page. The direct link to the page is – Download History.
Some users are NOT able to login to their account. Please clear your browsers cache and cookies to solve the issue.
Finally, YITH product updates has become impossible for us (or any other GPL website), due to their restricted membership plan and strict account banning policies. Now we do have access to only 4-5 products from YITH store, as they have disabled majority of our accounts. In addition, YITH has discontinued their club membership. We suggest our customers to shift to Woocommerce.com plugins rather than YITH plugins.
If you are seeing any YITH update on other website, please do check it carefully before using, as plenty of the websites are faking the versions.
Rest assured, if we do get access to any YITH update in future, we will surely update them in our store.
Due to technical issues, the credit reset time for Membership Plans has been revised again. The new timings are back to 1:25 to 1:35 PM (UTC / GMT). We apologise for the inconvenience.
Update: Within 24 hours, the error in Chrome has been rectified by Google for almost all the users of Google Chrome.
Recently we have seen some users are getting this error in Google Chrome (not in other browsers) “This file may be dangerous, so Chrome has blocked it” in plenty of popular file downloading websites. Even if the files are hosted on Google Cloud or AWS.
A screenshot of such error is shown below.
If you are using Google Chrome and getting the same error, then you can download file by visiting Google Chrome Options > Downloads and then click on “Keep dangerous file“. It will allow you to download the file.
Though this is a temporary warning error which will be fixed by Google soon. You can even use different browser for downloading files, for example, Safari in MacOS or FireFox in Windows OS.
With effect from 10-July-2020, the credit reset for Membership Plans will take place at 12:00 AM (UTC / GMT) to make it simple for all the members who have different time zones.
Recently we have seen plenty of new websites who are leeching and selling WordPress plugins and themes for as low as $10 with unlimited downloads per month, or even $99 for lifetime.
Please beware from such websites, as we have found that many of them are planting backdoors and malware in their plugins and themes to steal data.
You may lose your money, as well as end up with backdoors and malware in your (or your clients websites). Stay safe and please download only from trusted sources.
As a scheduled maintenance cleanup, we have removed all the tickets and comments older than 6 month. This has resulted in deletion of 10,377 comments and tickets.
We have lined up 100+ new themes and plugins. Stay tuned.
