Introducing the new Solspace Add-on Demo site!

We often receive requests from customers saying that they’d like to try out our software before they buy it. Our answer to them has always been that we offer a 30 Day Satisfaction Guarantee, and that they can go ahead and buy it, and if it doesn’t work for them, just contact us within 30 days of purchase for a full refund. While we believe that has been a very fair approach, we have often thought it would be much more convenient to allow our customers to experience our software before they buy it as well, allowing them to quickly try it out and experience the add-on.

That is why we’re very pleased to announce the launch of our new Solspace Add-ons Demo site! Here you’ll be able to test and play with some of our most popular add-ons! Mind you, you won’t be able to try them out directly within the ExpressionEngine control panel, but you can get a taste of the functionality on the front end. smile

As you may already be aware, we include optionally installable Demo Templates in many of our add-ons, designed for you to quickly see the add-on in action, help you understand how each template tag is used, and how they interact with each other. Over the past couple months, we’ve been overhauling our demo templates to use the Bootstrap responsive framework, giving our demo templates a more modernized look, feel and code (some of these demo template sets were originally designed many years ago). Taking advantage of what was already there, we were able to install these Demo Template sets onto an EE site, blend them together a little bit, create dummy content and somewhat quickly produce a fully functioning site for demo use!

Currently available for demoing is:

I should note that due to the nature of how some of the member-driven features in our add-ons work, it is NOT required to create an account to use the Solspace Add-on Demo site, but if you wish to explore and experience the member-driven features, you’ll need to create a member account. We NEVER show/expose your email address, nor will you ever receive any promotional/soliciting emails from us or other members (private messages, etc). You can also delete your account at any time after you’re done testing.

We also plan on offering demos of some of our other add-ons in the future as well. In the meantime, if you’re not already familiar with our add-ons, go ahead and try them out now! smile
