To make it easier to get in touch with us, from the 24th of March 2016 all support tickets will need to be submitted from your Crucial Control Panel.

NOTE: We provide this guide for information purposes only. As we're not web developers/WordPress professionals ourselves (we primarily take care of Email and Hosting Infrastructure), our support team can't provide assistance with this or other WordPress specific issue. If you're uncomfortalbe with configuring WordPress plugins, please have your WordPress developer or a WordPress professional complete this for you.
