Please note that PixeDima theme does include updates for our Premium Plugins (Revolution Slider and WPBakery), however, this does not mean that you will receive an individual license for these Premium Plugins. Due to Envato’s licensing rules, we can only issue updates for these plugins when we issue a theme update. Please continue reading below for further information on the process of how these updates are given.
Premium Plugin Update Process
When you purchase a theme that bundles Revolution Slider and WPBakery, such as Okab, you get to use these Premium Sliders with the theme. However, your purchase of PixelDima themes does not give you an individual license for the Revolution Slider and WPBakery to use or download as you wish.
Due to license rules, we can only issue new plugin updates when we issue new theme updates. So anytime PixelDima themes are updated, the latest plugin for the Revolution Slider and WPBakery will be included. This is according to the licensing rules enforced by Envato, and is something out of our control and must abide by.
In addition, this also ensures that we fully test the plugin to make sure there are no critical bugs that will conflict with our own update. This is a benefit that we also test any version we give with our theme before our customers get it.
Update the plugins via SFTP or FTP:
A ) From your favorite FTP program, delete the folders/files in the following directory:
wp-content/plugins/revslider/ ( For Revolution Slider )
wp-content/plugins/js_composer/ ( For WPBakery )
B ) Then replace them with the folders/files located inside the “revslider” ( For Revolution Slider ) “js_composer” ( For WPBakery ) and folder that can be found inside the zip file you obtained from “wp-content\themes\PixelDima-Theme\framework\plugins\“.
How To Get Auto Plugin Updates
Due to the license rules stated above, the only way to get automatic plugin updates is to purchase the plugins individually through CodeCanyon. Doing this provides you with a regular license for the plugin and a purchase code that can be used for Automatic Theme Updates.
