Recommendations
Here are some recommendations that you should considerate and might help you.
Do you have some problems with our tools?
Some usual problems reported on our support forum are originated from script conflict with 3th party tools. If you know Joomla suficient enough, you
already know that there is a huge amount of solutions and extensions available for free or some commercial from other team or developers. Naturally,
you will search others extension to complete some particular funcionality and your website needs, but understand that we are responsable only for our
templates and tools; and we cannot garantee that all 3th party extensions will work perfectly along with our tools. So, it is your hands and it is your
responsabity to choose those extensions on Joomla Comunity. Anyway, you always can ask for support in our forum and if is possible, we will try to help
you.
Another usual problem reported in our forum, is related with permissons on files and directory. Some tools need that some specific files are set with
rewrite or read permissions, so you can find some problems if you don’t have this permissions set. Take note that we cannot control your server security
configuration, but we can point you directions were you must change this permissions. If you are unable to change it, we recommend that you contact
your host server provider.
Keep always updated!
We strongly recommend that you visit us regularly on update.gavick.com, were you can see the latest updates of our templates, components, plugins
and modules. If you have any problem, be sure the solution is not already available and you will avoid waste time searching or asking for solutions in our
forum support.
Need some small CSS style customizations adjustments?
You can always request some support from our Moderators or Developers, but you need to take in mind that this is customization and not regular support
service. We are considerating in the future to create personnal customization and installation services support for those who need it. Nevertheless, we will
always available to try to help you.
If you have some experience in CSS styling, we strongly recommend the use one of the most powerful tool for WebDesigners, available for free in FireFox
browser - The
FireBug
addon - a perfect ally and work tool.
What is the better way for me to place a problem in the support forum?
If you need help in some issue, please post it in our forum support in the most objective way, preference in english language and with an URL to show
us the problem. This way, we will be able to give you the needed help in faster way.
Need to contact Us?
Besides our official forum support, you can also contact us by Skype. Please check our contact page and we will reply to you as soon as posible.
