Unfortunately, the powers that be have opted to discontinue the store for Framework. No products will be for sale for Framework via the Store (website) or via the Dashboard.
I just received a response that the Pagelines Store for Framework is officially gone. The solution:
You can then download the zip files for each of the free products. You can install them manually, in the folders where they belong. Do this via FTP, as some WordPress upload methods will not install these products in the correct locations.
This is better than nothing, but it makes it hard for me when I'm doing quick work for someone and I do not have all the information to access their host to FTP files. Often, I work with people that are not tech savvy and tracking down the host info is a pain and delays my work.
For example, I'm helping a local non-profit on a website that had the 2012 Wordpress theme. I switched them to Pagelines Framework right around the time when the store stopped working -- no mention of it not working before I made the change.
I needed to install the sections section and the customize plugin to build the site as I had mocked it up. All I had was their Wordpress login info to get started.
I'd like to add that I've waited for well over a week for the store problem to be resolved because the people I am building the site for don't know anything about their website host. Now, the method of communicating that the store is down for good comes from a response to a post I made several days ago!!!
If the store is not going to be available anymore, please consider making it possible to install the sections section and the customize plugin from Wordpress as other plugins can be installed from there. This is the less than optimal, but it seems like a fair solution for customers that paid for Framework knowing they could use it to build sites forever. This was how I justified the price!!!
Don't abandon a major product and leave us with a clunky work-around! Also, please communicate to current customers instead of making us dig through forums to figure out what is going on. I understand you are busy, but you are also a business.
Please consider this request from the perspective of customers that paid for products already. There would be no DMS if you didn't have people buying your earlier products!
Btw, I have spoken very highly to clients and others about Framework. DMS might be better, but I'm locked into Framework with many customers and I'm happy with product.
