Contact Live Support for Help Now

We cannot honor email requests from the Community Support Center. You must contact one of our live 24/7 departments above for email correspondence.

Don’t Give PII or Verification

Because we don’t have access to your hosting account from the Community Support Center, you should never post verification or personally identifiable information (PII). This includes payment information, usernames, passwords, email addresses, and other contact information that cyber criminals could use in phishing scams such as the “on this day” phishing email.

Be Specific

The more information you give us in your initial request, the better the assistance we can offer. You don’t need to give your website or other personal info for all situations for us to help you better. Provide what steps you followed to reach a problem, what troubleshooting you tried, and if you followed any of our articles related to your problem. This helps us understand how to replicate your issue to help you better and faster.

What Information Should I Provide?

Be sure to include or have the following information ready so we can help you troubleshoot and provide assistance in the fastest way possible.

  • What software and version are you using?
  • Is it a base install or are plugins/modules added?
  • What is the exact nature of the issue?
  • What are the steps to duplicate the issue?
  • When does this issue occur?
  • Were there any changes made just prior to the start of the issue?
  • If the software supports it, is caching enabled?
