This article provides plugin update instructions for the premium plugins that come bundled with our themes. Revolution Slider has special upgrade instructions which are also outlined in detail below.
Visual Composer and LayerSlider:
Follow the steps below to update these plugins to their latest versions.
- Log into your WordPress Dashboard
- Click Plugins and then deactivate and delete the plugin(s) you’d like to update
(ie. Visual Composer)
- To install the updated version of that plugin simply click Appearance > Install Plugins and re-install the plugin just like you did when you first setup the theme.
- That’s it! The new version is installed and you’re all good to go!
(we do our best to post the new plugin versions within 24 hours after they’ve been released by their authors)
Revolution Slider is unique in the manual update process – the plugin should never be uninstalled as you will lose any existing sliders. Full details covered in the RevSlider FAQ: http://www.themepunch.com/faq/update-plugin-packaged-theme/
Please contact us for the updated plugin files to complete your manual update.
The authors of LayerSlider, Revolution Slider and Visual Composer require a separate purchase code for automatic updates. We, unfortunately, do not have any code which will allow for automatic updates. The plugins must be purchased separately and the purchase codes provided with those purchases must be used for the auto-update registration. You can purchase the plugins from CodeCanyon using the links below:
