9 days. That's completely unacceptable.
I waited 2 weeks.. He finally sent me a license file. I paid for it too.

If I hadn't un-installed it, the site would have been down during that time, because the license error is fatal and brings the whole site down.

Something is up with these guys. They don't respond, they claim to be on holiday, and they are offering no support whatsoever. I have asked them about errors I am getting in the mobile template which are attributable to this mod (see my post about it in this forum), and they have ignored it for about a YEAR.

It's deplorable. There is NO support for this mod, despite the marking in this forum!

Support is nonexistent. The coder should remove the word support here.

That being the case, he ought to have turned it over or at least notified us. I paid $10 for the pro version, and got nothing for it. His license file wrecked my site.

He needs to learn some responsibility.
I ask the admins here to remove the support marking, since he won't. This mod is unsupported and people have a right to know that.
