Unfortunate Customer Service

Artisteer By Joshua on August 14th

So I have had the software now for 2.5 weeks. I have played around with it a little but before I really got into the nuts and bolts of the software I wanted to check how well it worked in the cloud that I bought it for. Weebly. It says it supports integration into Weebly. Well.... so far it does not do a very good job. When I bring the zip template over to Weebly, the only things that come over are the background image and the footer. None of the filler content, header, or navigation elements. On top of all of that I have contacted them 2 days after the software was purchased, and the only response i got was to upload the zip file. So I did within hours of receiving that. That was a week ago. I still have yet to receive any update. Also I have tried to contact them through phone with no luck.
