    The download link for the Thrive Toolkit is broken. I tried to contact the administrators @ the forums where the “download” is located, but I have not gotten a response.

    • Hello,

      Thanks for letting us know about the broken link.

      It’ll take some time for the original developer to come up with a new link. When that happens, we’ll update the procedure with the new link.

        Any chance that this has been updated?
