  1. Dear AS Template,

    I have purchased the Global PT template which provides a Quickstart install package. When I am installing it – after copying the unzipped content to the host – the ANGIE installer is launched which never installs the sample data. In the help on your page the Joomla installer is shown not the Angie one. Could you please advise how to install the sample data as well?

    Yours sincerely,
    Denes Varga

  2. I purchased the 002048 template after installing it with the sample data in the display I receive an error message: “This redirect url is not allowed, you should change the “Allowed domains for the redirection via the module” parameter from the AcyMailing configuration page to “localhost|localhost8080||” to allow it or set it to “all” to allow all urls”
