3rd Party Extension Plugins download access

The core extension is free for all, all 3rd party extensions plugins are available for free for all active paid members across JoomlArt, JomSocial, Gavick, JoomlaBamboo and ijoomla. Members having any active paid plan across these sites will have free access to all current and future plugins.

This limitation has been placed to limit the support requests arising out of 3rd party extension support. The workflow implementation for each plugin may be different and we would need to dedicate constant resources to keep updating them for all latest releases.
