Need help?

If you have any feature requests, need more hooks, or maybe have even found a bug, please let us know in the support forum or e-mail us at support@wpexperts.io. We look forward to hearing from you!

You can also check out the documentation pages, as they contain the most essential information on what the plugin can do for you.

Important

The plugin will create two files inside the wp-content/uploads/lmfwc-files folder. These files (defuse.txt and secret.txt) contain cryptographic secrets which are automatically generated if they don’t exist. These cryptographic secrets are used to encrypt, decrypt and hash your license keys. Once they are generated please back them up somewhere safe. In case you lose these two files your encrypted license keys inside the database will remain forever lost!

If you would like to contribute to any of these libraries in these languages (Node.js, Python, PHP, Ruby, .NET, C, C#, C++, and Golang), please visit our library page for more details.

Note

Few features like user license display on account page and license certification are fork from Digital License Manager plugin by Darko Gjorgjijoski and we have changed the code according to our need.

Need the Pro version, but they use Freemius for there own licensing :-(How bad can it get that they do not use there own plugins!!

The plugin owner should be ashamed of themselves. They are stealing and copying over features from other plugins, selling them within their overpriced pro version. When installing the plugin and the pro version, you’re facing a lot of PHP issues and errors. I can not understand why so many people are still using this plugin. There are better solutions out there.

I have problems with version 3.0.6, but I managed to overcome them. By investigating plugin files I found where the bug lies and have sent my suggestions to plugin developers in hope they will incorporate it in the next version. Honestly I´m dissapointed today, because in 3.0.7 version the bug still persists, obviously my suggestions were not implemented. Pity, I had to install previous version with my modifications, luckily I have backed it up before update.Other than that the plugin is working as it should, sending keys after order is completed, generate keys, etc.

It is hard to choose the reason for this 5-star rating because not only the software does what is expected and more, but the developer has demonstrated being astounding in both support and development (the product has been coded in an excellent way).Hard to find a gem such as this

We’ve been using the free version for our subscription-based website for more than a year with no issues at all. Then upgraded to a premium license to avoid generation of new licenses on subscription renewals. Using the premium plugin, licenses were no longer emailed to our clients. I did everything to narrow it down, and it was clear that the problem was the premium plugin – since reactivating the free version solved the issue.I contacted the support and documented everything. Three months later, their support is still completely incapable of solving this. At one point, they accepted that it was an error in the plugin. Sent me “an updated version” – that suspiciously had the same version as the existing plugin (1.1). I installed it and was anything but surprised to see that it still didn’t work. The last drop was the claim that it was another plugin that caused the issue. I will be applying for a full refund. Which I will probably never see. Stay away from this plugin. They are absolutely daft and uncapable to solve anything.
