@ ncredyble When YJ products are installed on properly configured servers/sites, they should work just fine. Whenever someone posts in the forum that they have installed (whatever) and it is not working, I install (whatever) on a sandbox site (on one of my servers) and try to replicate the issue being reported.
Having well over 30 years experience in various fields, I know one of the most frustrating things is reporting something that no one else can duplicate. This is no exception. That is why the demo packs exist. By starting with code you know works, you can begin modifying it to fit your needs. I always recommend testing early and often. That way, if you break something, you can easily undo it and find an alternative method that works before going too far.
