Technical Clarification Process

Submitting a Technical Clarification

We have provided a checklist of troubleshooting steps that need to be completed before submitting a Technical Clarification.  We want to make sure that all possible solutions are explored.  Often functionality issues can be corrected by updating plugins. 



    • Updated plugins through GD cORe and the plugins dashboard
    • Uploaded a .user.ini to increase hosting resources
    • Verified there are no plugin conflicts
    • Verified that the proper module(s) were used or tried other module(s)?
    • Followed all instructions from previous clarifications, if applicable
    • Written detailed notes describing the issue and how to recreate it
    • Verified the issue in an incognito or private window
    • Uploaded uncropped screen shots or screen recordings of the issue
    • Followed all of these steps if you're suffering from slow site speeds?
    • Followed Step 7 from this post if you are experiencing a 500 Internal Server Error or have issues accessing the site?


    • Followed all instructions from previous clarifications, if applicable?
    • Written detailed notes describing the issue and how to recreate it?
    • Verified the issue in an incognito or private window?
    • Taken screen shots or screen recordings of the issue?
    • Completed all other tasks
