As I've mentioned to all our PlatformPro users, support for PlatformPro is now over. The documentation has been removed and the product has reached the end of its lifespan.
I strongly urge you to upgrade to PageLines Framework urgently. Please write an email to email@example.com for available discounts. We will no be able to support Platform Pro moving forward. Many apologies for this.
