      Thanks Karim, which link in particular is wrong. I clicked them all and ended up on the right place, but that might be because I’m logged into Google. Let me know and I’ll take care of it. Thanks again.

        This one “and be sure to add us to your#CoronaSDK circle on Google+”

        the one before it works fine, the #CoronaSDK works when you are logged in as owner of the page but for others it will always give error page :)
