  • I installed this and, wanting the grey-rollover effect, purchased what I thought was the extra icon pack with grey version. It turns out those are two separate products (my fault that I didn’t check, but really 24 euros for both?!) and worse, the download .zip file I got was empty.

    Having actually paid for it, but with no product in hand, I thought I’d just open up the image files and make my own greyscales. I was surprised to find that they don’t appear to use sprites! This may be why some people have issues with page load times slowing dramatically.

    I’ll be uninstalling the plug-in. If I hear back from the company promptly I’ll eat the loss on the purchase, but if they don’t get back to me within 24 hours I’ll challenge the charge. I have a hard time believing it’s a scam with so many positive reviews, but I tried downloading the file twice, and there’s simply nothing in the .zip.

  • So they did get in touch quickly and told me that the zip file appears empty on Macs and PCs but isn’t, and I should upload it as is to the site.

    They also offered to refund the sale since I bought the wrong product. I think I’ll skip the plug-in given the non-sprite basis, but their customer service was prompt and polite.
