Local Community

Purchased Local Pro but none of the tools work for me

Issue Summary

I purchased Local Pro and have made two payments for the service but have yet to be able to use the Pro tools. I’ve already re-installed the program. Why can’t I use the Live Links, Instant Reload, Link Checker tools? Should I have just stuck with regular Local? Can I downgrade? I really only purchased Pro so I could share the staging site with my client when I’m not around, turns out it doesn’t work like that anyway and I still need to be around when my client wants to view it.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
    I only have one site in Local.

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?
